Order 2 x Bolognese for home delivery in Williamsburg. Then when I opened the bag it seemed to be 1 serving split into 2 containers. The smallest 2 servings of Bolognese I've ever seen. Costing $34.50. Are you kidding me? Maybe your delivery guy stole some on the way??? Because that was robbery. Never been so disappointed in my life for a meal of that price. Then when I called to make a complaint they cut me off. Then I called back and the manager didnt really care. Thanks for nothing. We threw it out.

I knew the reputation of the restaurant but I never tried it. That was easily one of the best Italian dinner I've ever had in NY. I'm Italian and I'm very picky with tastes and food. I really had the memory of a good dinner in Tuscany. The place is also really cozy. Good job

Four of us had brunch on a hot Sunday. My wife said the Tagliatelle Ragu was sensational. The French toast was unusual but among the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, the bacon ordered with it, came 20 minutes later and was so full of fat it was almost inedible. The egg plate came with bacon, sausage and other goodies and was also very good. The place was interesting with brick walls, an outdoor garden area with tables and a bar in front. Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. The service needs work. The carafe of water brought to the table was warm. The dinner menu showed Italian food & I'd like to come back and try it. Food was basically very good with some misses that can be cleared up easily if they want to.

Gorgeous space, delicious food, unpretencious, super-friendly staff, great wine list. Reliable pasta, fresh, seasonal ingredients. You want to linger outdoors on a summer evening or get cozy on a winter night. Hey, there's even one in SoHo.

So unpretencious, so beautiful such nice people....I just can´t say enough about this place. The waitress was always smiling, I noticed she loved the place and the food as her mouth watered while she´d explain the dishes to us. Just go and order everything to share...I´l lbe back and do something I have never donde....go with 10 people and just order the whole menu...no looking, no questions...just....Please start sending averything!!! When I´m through I will have surely unbotoned my pants and be drunk in italian whine hahahah

I had no idea such an amazing experience awaited me just minutes from my home. Everything from decor, to service and especially the cuisine...was excellent! What brought the entire evening together was meeting the "amazingly talented chef" after such a delicious meal. Riccardo was a joy! He (Riccardo) was humble and flattered to hear such praise. Aurora's owner should be very honored to have a beautiful and talented man such as Riccardo representing his restaurant. Hats off to the chef!!!

last night was one of my most enjoyed evenings in brooklyn. aurora has immediately become my favourite restaurant. the food is truly amazing, the waitress raccomended me the pork belly, can i say unbelievable ??? if you choose the belly make sure to have the "rosso di montefalco" a really good wine that goes really well with it. they also have a beautifull garden that's heated and covered. be sure to check it out.
