I have been here so many times I cannot count. The pizza is always consistently fresh and terrific. Just the right amount of sauce and cheese. Big comfy booths and the waiters never leave you waiting. Not super fancy but comfy with large booths.

Stopped in here on a bust Saturday around 6:30 pm. Quite crowed, but we were seated immediately. Server was very pleasant and our food was delicious. One of the better pizzas in town.

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...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...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.

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...More
