Pizzeria
Aurelio's Pizza was awarded, 2016 Chicago Tribune's "Top 25 Pizzas" for their thin crust cheese and sausage pizza.

Aurelio’s is Chicagoland's first and the nation's fifth established pizza chain. With a history as rich and entrenched in the community as the pizza it’s famous for, the very first Aurelio’s restaurant opened on Ridge Road in Homewood, IL as the pride and joy of Joseph A. Aurelio, Jr. who decided to give it a go as a restaurateur at the age of 26. With its legendary "old oven" dating back to 1959 in its Homewood location, Aurelio’s was a pioneer in the concept of the Family Pizzeria in the United States and helped to launch pizza into the American lexicon. Since that time, Aurelio’s has become a favorite pizzeria franchise to 41 locations across six states, growing a strong fan base for the taste of Aurelio’s.

The pizza was delicious! This was my second time having their pizza. I opted for the 6” (personal pan) and it was perfect. The wings were also good. I definitely will be going again!

We come from NYC, a city with excellent pizza. Aurelio's thin crust wouldn't survive. It wasn't good. My son barely ate half of his because of the taste. The server was fine when she wasn't distracted by her phone. It is conveniently located near the museums.

Best thin crust pizza we have ever had!! The pizza had a burnt cheese taste which was so unique and great.

Food was good, the server was attentive but but not hovering. Appealing decor and varied options for seating- booth, table, and bar. Booths over looked the road. About and half mile from Shedd Aquarium and walkable. I don’t believe there is any adjacent parking.

There truly is no better pizza and this location is as close to the original as I’ve had. Great service and a top notch pizza.

My family of 6 went after a trip to the Field Museum and we all really enjoyed our visit! The table was ready before we got there, the place was almost empty, and the service was excellent. We will definitely be making this a regular stop when we visit the city.

Very chill atmosphere with good thin crust pizza. There was an ordering mistake by our server and he brought out the wrong toppings on our pizza but very quickly and apologetically corrected it and made us a new pie. The took $5 off our check for the inconvenience which I appreciated. Overall it was pretty good but would not rush back there as a “go to.”

I love Aurelio's! Great food as always.
I rated overall 4 stars because my husband and I went with another couple and they wouldn't split our checks. I know many restaurants do this for larger parties, maybe 6 or more but two couples seems a bit wrong.

I have been to several Aurelio's locations. They all are usually solid with the thin pizza showing the way. South Loop was no exception. Albeit a tad pricey, $23 for a two-topping thin, the pizza was delicious and one of my Chicago favorites. The server, Eric, was polite and well-timed, making for a nice night out. I would definitely recommend to those looking for good pizza in the South Loop area

Went here because it was a short walk from our hotel. Great pizza and spinach salad! Sat by the window and watched all the people going by. Definitely recommend!
