Each year we have a large group that rolls into town for a bowling tournament. Our kids have made it a 3 yr tradition to go to Aurelio's after our 1st day of competition. They always order the same pizza and appetizer. It brings them good luck! The first 2 years we finished 2nd in the State.....this year, WE WON!... More

Food with no taste and flavor. No seasoning. Not Italian food at all. And the decoration is so creepy and cheezy

My Dad likes the pizza here. It's about the only thing worth eating at Aurelio's anymore. The cheese is crispy on the outside as it has been since the first Aurelio's opened in Homewood, IL many years ago but everything else was very disappointing. I ordered a tall rum and coke and couldn't taste any rum. I ordered the so-called... More

Not impressed, expensive too... why I don't know. If you want pizza, go to Chicago, Lou Malnitys, Geradanos something like that. Joliet does not know pizza. Sause is just ok, very doughy product like they are trying to sckimp, which is not good.

Looking for a local kind of place to eat at when passing through, stopped here and really enjoyed the food. Italian type pizza, pasta and other things. They give you large portions for reasonable prices and everything with their homemade sauce tastes good. Their house specialties are good. Friendly waitresses. We recommend trying the place.

Service here is most friendly and helpful. Pizza is homemade and terrific; salad is fresh and tasty. We were traveling cross-country and were so happy to have stopped here by chance.

I've ordered from here a couple of times while in town on business. It's good but not great and the last time I waited almost 2 hours for delivery. What's up with that? Anyway the Pizza is good and perhaps better service at the Restaurant.

If you want great Aurelio's pizza, try their other locations. I have given up on this one. They cannot turn out a quality product twice in a row. The product varies every time we have had it. From good to mediocre. They need a little quality control.

Excellent friendly staff. Service with a smile. There was a slight error ( that was my fault) and manager was most kind when trying to correct my problem. He had to call the corporate office the following day. He promptly called me back to inform that everything was taken care of. Delicious pizza besides all that! Will be returning frequently!...

We stopped in for a family get together the day after Christmas. We had a reservation, and the table was prepped and ready for the right amount of people. We ordered several pizzas and some appetizers, and some drinks. The waitress did a great job of keeping the drinks filled. I compare this place to the original in Homewood (which... More
