Neighborhood: Old Town.  Website and link for reservations are here.   Open for lunch and dinner. Free parking in lot under the building, two hours free street parking nearby.

Insiders Tip:
 Bridgeway, Sausalito’s only major artery, changes its name several times as you pass through the southern end of town, although it all feels like one road with a few twists. One of those twists results in the street we think of as Bridgeway being called 2nd St. for a few blocks, and that’s the location of Aurora.

Aurora Restaurant

One of the friendliest restaurants in town on many evenings, Aurora has been a pleasant new surprise as they took over the building that previously housed Cacciucco near the southern edge of Sausalito.   The Italian menu includes items you won’t find all over town.  The staff have worked at building relationships with the community, and we’re particular fans of their different steak specials and the lightly breaded calamari steak.  For all you Jeopardy (Sausalito Edition) players out there, Aurora is the correct answer to the question: “What’s the first restaurant you reach inside Sausalito city limits if you bike across the Golden Gate Bridge en route to the Ferry or if you walk from the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito?”

They also win this year’s Sausalito award for best restaurant video soundtrack for the piece below, which they produced.
