Having grown up in Homewood and now living in California, I realize how insanely spoiled I was to have Aurelio's in my back yard. Chicago is hands down the best pizza city and Aurelio's thin crust (In Homewood) is among the very best. It's a salt bomb but SO delicious. Ask for the "old oven"... Not sure it really makes...

We drive 20-25 minutes from Indiana to dine at Aurelio's Pizza, Homewood, Il. Pizza fit for a king. We have NEVER been disappointed at Aurelio's! Full Italian menu available. We go for the pizza and salad. Many times we order a larger pizza just so we can take some home in a doggie bag. Highly recommend.

Aurelio's is a favorite for our family. We, like many others have gone here for many celebrations. Yesterday was my husband's birthday and his wish was to celebrate with great pizza at Aurelio's. He also loves a certain birthday cake. I spent the day making his cake and the family happily set out for Aurelio's. We enjoyed our dinner, he... More

I've been going to Aurelio's back when they use to be on Ridge Road in Homewood, IL. and the lines would circle outside and around the building. The pizza at Aurelio's, even today, is absolutely fantastic, from the mouthwatering sauce to the savory cheese, to the perfect consistency in their pizza dough. In my life, I have traveled quite extensively;... More

Great friendly neighborhood pizzeria with rooms for large groups (with kids) or smaller alcoves for date night. The sauce, crust, and toppings still the best in the south burbs. Love the spinach calabrese and the hot roast beef sandwich never fails to please. Antipasto and variety of drinks are also good. Friendly, efficient staff. People come from miles away to... More

We use this location to meet with family a few times a year. We've never had a bad experience, or food here. Service was good, as was the food.

Joe Aurelio didn't invent pizza. But he certainly must be commended for promoting the Italian pie in Chicago's south suburbs in a fashion that P.T. Barnum would have envied. Aurelio opened his first pizzeria in 1959 at 2041 Ridge Road in Homewood, Illinois. Four tables, a kitchen and an oven. He sold only six or seven pizzas a day. It... More

Aurelio's is legendary and this location is the Mothership, the plain old cheese and sausage is all you need, though the others are excellent. Don't miss the the antipasto salad

These guys know how to make a pie. If you're from out of town, you NEED to try their pizza. They've been a staple in this area for decades. Their pies are epic and will fill any sized belly!
