I have never been to this restaurant before and I have to say it was interesting. The crushed tomato sauce and homemade Italian sausage were great on the pizza. This to be clear in my personal preference, I like only mozzerella on my pizza and...this had a cheese blend I was not a fan of. The service here was really good and our server was nice.More

We love their pizza but had a terrible grilled chicken sandwich! It had two breasts on it that were not cut and were way overdone. Could not eat as a sandwich so I took one breast off. So dry it was impossible to eat at...all. Took chicken home for our cat.More

Server just didn’t care. He said he’d only been there 3 weeks. We ordered drinks and water. Never got water. I had the antipasto salad. It came with a huge pile of mushy green olives, a few black olives, one pepperoni, 1/4 slice cheese and...1/2 slice ham😂. We also ordered chicken parm. Chicken was so rubbery and tough. Marina was thick like paste and no flavor. We asked for bread and ge said they don’t serve bread unless I buy garlic bread.More

Chose Aurelio's recently because of it's central location for all of us. The occasion was a reunion of 8 friends who hadn't seen each other in a while. Made reservations for the outdoor patio on a Wednesday evening. Had never been to Aurelio's before. Can't...speak enough about the atmosphere there! Had no idea there would be a live band performing, and they were outstanding! (Should've asked for their name.) They certainly added to the liveliness of our occasion. The food we ordered was pizza and salad. Being a pizza fanatic, I'd say theirs is definitely good but not the best I've had. We purposely ordered a variety of crusts and toppings, and were pretty satisfied with all of them. Ingredients were fresh, and they put plenty on. The service, however, was disappointing. Though our server was very sweet and professional, and fulfilled our requests, she didn't come to our table very often to "check in." There were too many times when at least 1-2 of us had an empty beverage, including water glasses. Multiple times I found myself waving over one of the other servers, asking them to send our server to our table. Not sure if it was because she had too many tables to handle (though it didn't seem like it), or because she was waiting on tables inside the restaurant as well as out on the patio. Thus far, this has been my only dissatisfaction with Aurelio's. Would I return? Yes - and I would try a few other entrees from their menu. But if I experience the same type of service (or lack thereof) again, I won't be returning. One of the joys of eating out is being served beverages and food in a timely manner, and having attentive servers can ensure this.More

Please keep in mind that I grew up with Joe Aurelio's original (old oven) recipe served at their take-out counter in Homewood, IL. The Geneva Aurelios pizzeria is a great place to eat with the outside bar and seating. However, my last several visits including...last night, was once again very disappointing. They put so much cheese on their pizza's that you cant really see or taste the sauce. Their employees actually wear t-shirts advertising "Its the Sauce"! but you hardly know it's there buried under heavy layers of cheese. If your a cheese lover, this is the pizza for you. If you want to actually see the tasty sausage and savor the sweet famous sauce, this recipe is not for you. Do youselves a favor and the next time your in the Homewood, area, stop in and taste what Joe Aurelio's recipe is really like out of the "old oven". It's truly amazing. I will give Geneva one more chance and if not satisfied, will head back to Riverside Grill in St. Charles where you can find an excellent tavern style thin crispy pizza where you can actually see and taste their ingredients. Nobody's perfect and overall this is not a terrible pizza but the way they put pizza's together misses the mark.More

Staff was great. We had a wonderful friendly gal for a server. Very nice décor and they do have outside seating. This was our first visit and we did not like the pizza. In addition it was extremely salty: we were drinking all night long...after our visit!!! We did ask for a small sample of the spaghetti meat sauce and it is great. We may come back for the spaghetti. Tomato bread very good. The moscato wine was a cheap brand and has a sour after taste. This place is not cheap but reasonable considering all restaurnats are raising prices.More

Love Aurelios! My favorite thin crust pizza out there. We come here many times and always get a thin crust and an antipasto salad, both out of this world! Place is quite noisy but food so worth it. Will return many times.

We ordered delivery twice and decided to stop in. Waitstaff is friendly and fast. The thin crust pizza is perfect plus we LOVE the breaded mushrooms. Arnold Palmers unsweet are good too. Next time if its not raining we plan to try the patio which...looked inviting. Oh and dining in sure beats delivery just fyi.More

It was super crowded but we didn’t have to wait that long for a table. Even though they were so busy, the food came out in a timely manner. It is your typical pizza Joynt, nothing more. The food was what you would expect.

I like this restaurant. The service is usually good. But the quality of what comes out of the kitchen can be spotty. Sometimes you get a great pizza... sometimes you don’t. This time was not a good experience. Dirty silverware, cold appetizer, & subpar pizza....Not enough consistency to leave a favorable review, so I left an average review.More

One of Chicagolands best thin crust pizza. I travel out of my way to go there. They are opening a new location in Winfield which is closer to my home. Can’t wait!

We visit Aurelio's several times a year and their pizza is consistently very good. The anti pasta salad is very good as well. If you get their app you also can get rewards of dollars off as you visit. The service is always good.
