    The ambience outdoors in the evening was breathtaking. Enjoyed the lamb and the bodini dessert. Not too impressed with their cocktails. Would come back to this bklyn gem.

    One of the best brunches I've ever had - I don't even eat eggs Benedict and it was one the best things I've ever eaten. French toast was amazing too.

    Officially the best Italian pasta dish I’ve ever tasted. Also a stunningly perfect pannacotta. Knowledgeable staff who were able to recommend a wine according to our taste. Lovely warm decor

    Start with some olives to nibble on, then I highly recommend the squid ink pasta with cuttlefish, shrimp, seafood ragù and pepper.

    I’m in love with this place and the decoration but not too much with the food. We ordered new zealand lamb chops & Tonarelli (alaskan king crab & zucchini) but I didn’t like much the flavor

    Delicious brunch! Sit in the outdoor area/greenhouse and try the gnocchi, which are different (and better) than what you'd typically expect.

    A selection of their cheese is imported daily from Italy. And nothing provides the perfect distraction for an awkward date (as seen on Girls) like a mouthful of Burrata.

    One of the best Italian meals I've ever had! We sat in the garden and had extraordinary wonderful food and we will definitely return here. Please ignore "cash only" comments, they accept cards!

    Ricotta, black truffles, and prosciutto di Parma elevate the eggs Benedict at brunch, when the French toast comes stuffed with apple compote and topped with Amarena cherries. Read more

    Really delicious pasta, friendly and fairly quick service. The patio outside is beautiful too, though you might need to wait to sit there on a nice night.

    I've been here twice with my girlfriend. Once for brunch and for dinner. The bistecca is awesome. Definitely a place I will come back to. Great food. Great environment.

    The fresh farm organic chicken was amazing. The service wasn't great. The server/host was pretty pleasant at first. But that changed when one of the people in my party opted to change her meal.

    Artichoke omelette with whipped ricotta and crunchy chip is that perfect flavor AND texture combo

    Aurora's bar team won't steer you wrong! The "Caffe' Shakerato" made with Averna, Jamaican Rum, milk, & a shot of espresso is the perfect way to start your evening or wind down a hearty Italian meal.

    Pasta is delicious and flavorful. Outdoor seating is cute although service leaves a bit to be desired

    Everything I tried was delicious but the pappardelle was my favorite. The atmosphere is great too, romantic but not ostentatious.

    The French toast tastes like the center of a croissant. One of the single best bites of food that I have ever experienced.

    Eggs Benedict, one of the best I've ever had... Bloody Mary, weak... Coffee, horrible...

    Happy hour: A quartino (glass and a half) of wine for the price of a glass, AND you get foccacia, cheese & olives. 5-7p every day. AWESOME.

    The food was delicious, however the service 👎🏼 not as good. The waiter took our order and never came to our table to check on us but to rush us out of the place as they were turning their shift.
