I ordered carry out pizza's for our staff. These pies rate very high with myself and my co-workers. The restaurant is casual and cater's to college students, but I saw a very large local crowd also when picking up. I went back at night to get a carry out sandwich which was also very good.

I think every college town has a great pizza place and I think this is probably the best in Macomb. Definitely worth a try if your are looking for really good pizza.

I was familiar with Aurelio's in the Chicago area and was pleasantly surprised to find one in Macomb, Illinois. It had the quality of the other Aurelio's I had visited. However, service was a bit slow.

Perhaps because we were the first customers on a Wednesday afternoon, was the driving factor fueling our server's annoyance. We were treated with disdain from the moment we were seated - an attitude our waiter maintained throughout our meal. Although the food, pizza and pasta, were satisfactory, the waiter's rude posturing put a damper on what should have been a... More

This is a great pizza place to take a family or group. If you remember the "original" Joe Aurelio's in Homewood, IL (still there), you'll enjoy this gem located on the square in Macomb. I'm old enough to remember when there was ONE Aurelio's Pizza, and it was basically, just carryout! Still the same great pizza, now over 60 years... More

While Larry As makes a better pizza...Aurelio's is a close second. The atmosphere here is much more charming, especially in the front room with it's brick walls and old photos. Service is usually middle of the road.

The best pizza in downstate Illinois. Across from the Amtrak station downtown. Simply great and the place all former Macomb residents come back to when in town

No way! Should not call yourself Aurelio's Pizza. Nothing you served me a few weeks ago is anything like the original Aurelio's in Homewood. When I see them next month, they will know about you. Shame Shame - cutting on all your ingredients. Bad sausage, basic crust...not even close. Nice try, go back to Homewood and learn the recipe all... More

Small town or city, you won't find anything better. Absolutely delicious food and good service in a good atmosphere. Big menu offers something for everyone, even if you don't want pizza.
