Looking for a local kind of place to eat at when passing through, stopped here and really enjoyed the food. Italian type pizza, pasta and other things. They give you large portions for reasonable prices and everything with their homemade sauce tastes good. Their house specialties are good. Friendly waitresses. We recommend trying the place.

Service here is most friendly and helpful. Pizza is homemade and terrific; salad is fresh and tasty. We were traveling cross-country and were so happy to have stopped here by chance.

I've ordered from here a couple of times while in town on business. It's good but not great and the last time I waited almost 2 hours for delivery. What's up with that? Anyway the Pizza is good and perhaps better service at the Restaurant.

If you want great Aurelio's pizza, try their other locations. I have given up on this one. They cannot turn out a quality product twice in a row. The product varies every time we have had it. From good to mediocre. They need a little quality control.

Excellent friendly staff. Service with a smile. There was a slight error ( that was my fault) and manager was most kind when trying to correct my problem. He had to call the corporate office the following day. He promptly called me back to inform that everything was taken care of. Delicious pizza besides all that! Will be returning frequently!...

We stopped in for a family get together the day after Christmas. We had a reservation, and the table was prepped and ready for the right amount of people. We ordered several pizzas and some appetizers, and some drinks. The waitress did a great job of keeping the drinks filled. I compare this place to the original in Homewood (which... More

I quit ordering sandwiches here because they are skimpy and way overpriced. I do not like the pizza either, so when I got forced into going here, I chose the buffet. BIG mistake. It was around one o'clock and the food was dried up and sparse. What was there was also room temperature, including the salad. I complained but was... More

After gorging ourselves on Thanksgiving dinner and having zero desire to cook coupled by my strange craving for spaghetti, my boyfriend and I stopped here for lunch this afternoon. We opted for the reasonably priced ($8.95) lunch buffet. All hot foods were hot and pizzas came out on time. Our waitress was very pleasant and equally attentive. Overall a pleasant... More

Went here for the luncheon buffet. Arrived at about 1:25pm and was seated by the hostess. She informed me they had just had a large lunch party and the Buffett was low on food. I proceeded to order a beverage and went to the Buffett line where I found only a few slices of three different pizzas and very little... More
