We had such a wonderful experience at the Aurora Restaurant recently. The food was exceptional as was the service. My son and his new bride count it as one of their favorite restaurants which is why they chose to have their reception there. The garden...More

The side open courtyard is perfect for an early Summer lunch. The small menu has fresh and tasty Italian dishes and the service is fast and efficient.

Aurora is a gem! The PASTA IS LIKE ITALIAN DREAM OF DELICIOUSNESS. A bit dramatic, but seriously - they have Gnuddi (naked ravioli)!!!! That is such a rare dish to find in general and then place it in BK. Pretty much everything there is yummy....More

Small menu but very well selected. Calamares and octopus were very good. We shared a lot of plates. Gazpacho was a highlight. Cosy place, unpretentious, good cocktails and lovely staff. Highly recommended

Fab Italian restaurant. Great wine list. Service is friendly and easy. One of the best burgers I've had in a while. Tried all the desserts and could not pick a favourite.

Great place and ambiance. Excellent food. I had the Strapazzate : scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a burrata mozzarella on a little brioche - then an affogato dessert: mascarpone ice cream drones in a hot espresso. I recommend this place... lovely
