The original Aurelio's, in Homewood, Illinois.

That's a pizza place!

You are right on with John's.............what a fun place to go for pizza. We had a wonderful time there; the service was terrific and the pizza was fine.

The ideal ambiance for a true pizzeria should be strictly, "old school". With the emphasis on, old. As in something like, "in business for 50 years".

Typical New Haven/ Connecticut ambiance since 1934

I just tried Modern Pizza for the first time this past Friday. Best sausage pizza I have ever eaten in my life! Better in fact, dare I say, than my beloved Roseland Pizza. However... that said, Roseland Pizza has the better atmosphere. It's old timey, the building is from the 30's. It's smack dab in a residential area, like a throw back from another era.

I'm with you. And to us it's always about atmosphere whether it's a run down shack or snippity upscale.

We can make good food at home, and pizza just the way we like it.
We don't have to complain because the crust is undercooked.

Atmosphere is the fun of going out.

It's funny how people insist on answering a different question than the author asked.

We are so opposite of those posting that the food is the only reason to go to a place. Crazy.

As I've said before,studies show many people prefer an identical cup of coffee,if served in the restaurant over home,perceiving it a better cup of coffee because of the atmosphere...your surroundings can cloud your feelings about the food you're eating!!!

I'll have to side with the minimalists on this one. If the look of a place harkened back to its original owners, I (as a traveler) would be more inclined to accept the authenticity of the food. Generally speaking, too much kitsch suggests tourist trap if I didn't have the benefit of local knowledge. Tex-Mex restaurants are especially guilty of this where I live.
