Aurelio's Pizza of Homewood - Homewood
With multiple outposts across Chicagoland (as well as in Indiana, Nevada, Georgia, Minnesota and Florida), the original, family-owned location for Aurelio's Pizza opened in 1959. They all boast the same classic pizza parlor interior: stained glass, a raised-floor gazebo and red and white checkered tabletops.
The menu is the same at all Aurelio's, beginning with the appetizers. The restaurant is the type of place to take larger groups so you can take advantage of the offerings. Start with items like toasted ravioli, hot wings, zucchini sticks and tomato bread popped with cheese and a sprinkle of oregano.
Pizza selections include a variety from the signature pies. Choose from "the works" (sausage, ham, pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, cheese), spinach, taco (seasoned ground beef topped with cheddar cheese, black olive, tomatoes, lettuce & mild ortegas. Served with sour cream & salsa) and Hawaiian (ham & pineapple).
