“Fun Sit Down Pizza Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Love the pizza, it's my wife's favorite. Used to be a carry out only, across the street, now moved into space with plenty of tables and an incredible outdoor seating area.
Pizza is a little different. As they say, "It's the sauce!" (although I think it's the cheese, too - maybe a touch of cheddar with the mozzarella?)
Anyway, great menu, lots of choices of pizza, sandwiches, salads (the Chopped is great), apps (Calamari!), can please everyone in your party.
Amazingly, before Aurelio's moved into this space, three other restaurants failed here - now they're packin' 'em in!

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This pizza has a different taste. In most pizza restaurants the sauce is usually somewhat like the spaghetti sauce. This sauce is sweet with a great tasting crust. All portions are more thgan you can eat and the price is average.

“Best family pizza restaurant in Geneva.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Aurelio's Pizza is now located front and center on State Street, one block from Third Street, and serves up piping hot pizza pies for everyone. It's really a treat, with checkered tablecloths and attentive wait staff. It's reasonably priced and has family specials. It is a fantastic place to bring the kids when on a walking tour of Geneva, as it has something for everyone: spaghetti, pizza, ravioli, meatballs, the works. The drink sizes are generous, and refills are flowing.

Although this is a fair place for bringing a date, it doesn't have the romance of many other pizza places, such as Pal Joey's in West Chicago. It's not a romantic, candlelit hideaway--for that there are other places, such as Chianti's Restaurant or The Grotto, both one block away on Third Street in Geneva. Those are much better for long conversations and bedroom eyes.

The pizza at Aurelio's is excellent. It's somewhat cheesy for my taste, but it is seasoned well and arrives hotter than a skillet in a Santa Fe summer. The best pizza in the entire Fox Valley is at Orlando's Pizza, which is about one mile away on State Street (over the river)--it's amazing. But Orlando's is only so-so for atmosphere, and is a drive if one is shopping on Third Street.

Enjoy! Aurelio's is the best value (price) of any of the restaurants I mention above, but I encourage you to study the reviews of them all.
