As a pizza junky, I beg you to heed my warning on this review. Please keep in mind that there were 4 of us, and we hadn’t eaten in almost 10 hours. We were starving, and anything, or so we thought, would have been devoured! Not the case… The pizza served to me smelled vile, disgusting, and grotesque. Unfortunately, the taste was just as bad as the smell. I figured there had to be a reason this pizza was so horrible, but I am being told by some friends of mine that this horrendous pie is their standard mess. Take a look the photo of this orangey disaster. To be completely fair, the sauce wasn’t horrible. It was a middle of the road, canned, generic sauce. At least it was edible. HOWEVER, this isn’t real cheese, and this definitely isn’t real pizza. When delivered to our table, I could smell something that had a dirty aroma. I put the pizza up to my nose and I almost gagged. I didn’t want to prejudge it, so I figured I would at least take a bite. Again, I was super hungry. Big mistake! This was, by far, the grossest thing I have ever eaten. It had zero qualities of a Chicago style pizza. In my 45 years as a Chicagoan, I have eaten at probably eaten at 50 different pizzerias (some outside of the US as well). I seriously didn’t think pizza could taste or smell like this. An absolute DISASTER! I don’t believe Little Caesar’s, Dominos, or Papa John’s belong in a great pizza city like Chicago, but they are literally miles ahead of this disgusting garbage. I would call this pizza dog shit, but Aurelio’s pizza is so bad that it aspires to even be in the same league as dog shit. Anyone that can give this place a decent review should be deemed as illegitimate, and should be publicly shamed. Avoid this place. A big, fat 0.0 for this place, and I didn’t even think pizza could ever receive a zero!!!!!!!

Real solid pizza. Really good crust. The cheese and sauce is good. Not greasy at all.

It’s average. I’ve actually had better from here in the past. Not bad, didn’t knock my socks off.
