Perfect every time!

Growing up in this area, I always could count on Aurelio's for great pizza and pasta. Today, March 15th I brought my grandson from Florida to enjoy some Chicago South Side treats. He loved the spaghetti and meat ball (huge meat ball) with marinara sauce. My sister and I enjoyed a great thin crust... read more

First experience with Aurelio's Pizza...very good! Visiting friends in Chicago and ordered to have at the house, had 3 different kinds, all good The deluxe had a little too much on it, was very good, but you couldn't pick a piece up without all the toppings falling off. If that's the worst thing, then I'm ok. We had from the... More

I believe this is the (or one of the) original Aurelio's open since 1959. It's very authentic and rustic looking - older but neat, clean and updated! This has upstairs eating (3 levels total). I have not been here for over 20 years, and it's still as great as I remember! The breadsticks (redeemed for free w/signing up on email... More

Like - the pizza, both eating in and take-out in my humble opinion sets the standard. Families, groups, couples... can get a bit noisy and crowded because of popularity, week-ends will see lines for seating. My dislikes - mediocre garlic bread AND the anti-pasta plate is far from what an Italian would expect ... otherwise, not ever been disappointed in... More

If you come to Homewood, you have to visit Aurelio's. Their pizzas have an original taste which is difficult to do in the Chicago area. I give them two thumbs up

If you are visiting Homewood you must eat at Aurelios Pizza. A Homewood tradition since 1959, best pizza in Chicagoland.

Aurelio's is a tradition in the area for good reason. The pizza is excellent (though not my absolute favorite in Chicago). I had the Hawaiian (Canadian bacon and pineapple), and it was delicious. We had a large group of 20 and they did a good job taking care of us. The salads looked good too!

I grew up in Homewood and have been eating Aurelios pizza since the early 70's, when they were located at the original much smaller restaurant. I've had a lot of different pizzas over the years and it is the best pizza. Now, I also think Uno's/Dues are terrific too yet if given the choice of only being able to have... More
