“Excellent pizza place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

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.

“Surprisingly good pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

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.

“A disappointing venue presenting a respectable product.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

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 pleasant event - we were hosting our grandson and his date.

This is not our first encounter of this nature at Aurelio's and that is why we prefer Larry A's!

“Not Homewood, but still Aurelio's Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

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 and some 40 franchises later. This Macomb property has been here many years now.

“Best pizza place in town.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

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.
