I have tried numerous pizza places around my area and down town, but NOTHING beats Aurelio's. I mostly get it to go, but if you choose to sit and dine in the restaurant its a very warm, inviting, and authentic atmosphere. They have the most delicious, crispy crust and a slightly sweet sauce. My absolute favorite is the meatball topping-they crumble whole meatballs over the entire pizza. It's a spin on sausage. The prices are reasonable. Every person I have sent to Aurelio's is obsessed and says it's their new favorite pizza.
Don't worry that they're closed and moved across the street. This (and all the Aurelio's) are hands down the BEST pizza restaurants in the country......sweet sauce, liberal use of provolone, great fresh ingredients. I eat it every Friday religeously.....
A charming, family-owned business. Aurelio's is located in an unassuming strip mall that looks like any other, but once you walk in through the carved wood door, you're to another time and place. A large mural greets you inside the front door with beaming visages of the Aurelio family (I can only assume). It's a nice, homey touch. There's also a large photograph of a Gulf war soldier in the desert proudly holding up an Aurelio's t-shirt. Several walls are covered with Polaroids and snapshots of various babies, all future customers. I liked the dining area. It's dark, with dark wood paneling and stained glass placed here and there. The tables are formica, but have a red checkerboard pattern. And red and green Italian umbrella shades - the kind you'd find over a patio table - are suspended from the ceiling everywhere. Roy Orbison played on the stereo. GoodFellas came to mind as I looked around and took it all in. I get the sense that not much has changed since they opened their doors, and I like that. We all dug into the pizza buffet, which is usually not my favorite way to try new food. But the spinach and cheese pazone (or is that calzone?) was fantastic, and I liked the capers in the pasta salad. Yum! If you're in the neighborhood and you happen to appreciate the charms of local pizzerias, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
