We stopped for pizza after walking the bridge. It's away from the hubbub of the water front so parking was easy and it was a relaxed atmosphere. Absolutely delicious and reasonably priced.

Nothing special but ample for the job of lunch. Salad was crisp...nothing special but well prepared. Chicken parm was good...not soggy or tough..nice sauce. Pizza had a nice flavor but obvious frozen crust...not thin and more like stiff cardboard.

Don't go here terrible service!! We arrived in for lunch on a day trip to Sausalito. All started off well, the waiters were friendly and quickly took our order. 20 minutes in we were wondering what was taking so long we were tempted to leave after 30 minutes but didn't want to be rude. Finally a waiter came up and... More

We stopped here on our way into Sausalito, because we were starving! We were worried that it might not be very good, but we were pleasantly surprised. All of the food looked delicious. The pasta is homemade. Our pizza tasted very authentically Italian. And despite when TripAdvisor says, it was not an expensive meal. I thought it was quite affordable.

Wow! We were just walking and what a find. Off the busy strip, around the corner and you are here. We sat out in the nice sun and breeze and had the specials off the day. Lasagna and Salmon Mango Salad. Everything was wonderful. The wine and beer cold and the food wonderful. We ate, talked and watched the bicycles... More

We were driving in to Sausalito on a mission to find food right about sunset (9pm) before heading back to the view of the Golden Gate Bridge from Marin Headlands for a night photo shoot. The restaurant was luckily open! The food was decent Italian, but not fantastic. Definitely solid. We had the chicken Marsala and chicken parmigiana. Both were... More

We spent a week in Sausalito and this is one of the best restaurants we visited. Food was fresh and delicious, good portion size, and reasonable prices. Service was top shelf. We were so happy the first time that we went back the next night.

For the price food was good. Service was quick and friendly. Nice cozy atmosphere however the cold breeze through the open doors was not. My wife had the seafood pasta, I had the spinach ravioli. Followed by their creme brûlée for her and tiramisu for me. Both very good. While they good wine list we took a pass on alcohol... More

We were riding our bikes after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and happened upon this restaurant. We stopped because they were advertising Gluten-free pizza in their window. It's a lovely place with outdoor seating if you want. Service was wonderful and we enjoyed our meal and a break from our ride.

We noticed this restaurant as we rode by on our bikes on our way into Sausalito. We continued into town and locked up our bikes to walk around and find somewhere to eat. After a short time, my husband and I decided to ride back through town, up hill and locked up our bikes to experience lunch at Aurora Ristorante... More
