Aurora Restaurant Review: A blissful sun-drenched Tuscan afternoon comes to mind as soft lights cast a luminescent glow on the cream-and-beige-colored dining room. Caramel hued banquette seating and Italian-style decorative ceramic ware add to the juxtaposition of contemporary and provincial. The rustic yet refined Italian cuisine includes such light and flavorful starters as oven-baked eggplant Parmesan with mozzarella. Among the pastas, try the delicate spinach and Gorgonzola ravioli in a cherry tomato sauce and walnut pesto, and the inventive egg pappardelle with braised duck, truffle purée, radicchio and pecorino. Entrées include tender roasted Berkshire pork with seasonal vegetables and sea scallops with parsnips and a black truffle vinaigrette comprised of fifty-year-old sherry vinegar.
