Mark Johnson’s weekly foray into awesome dining
Where to go: Aurelio’s Pizza
Where it is: 13147 Parkside Dr., Fishers
When it’s open: Sunday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Mark’s take: Is there anything better than a neighborhood pizzeria that’s suitable for families, big game gatherings and get-togethers with friends? Not if that pizzeria is Aurelio’s Pizza. Aurelio’s is all of that and more: A casual dining experience that offers more than just pizza. Appetizers, sandwiches and pasta dishes are all part of the menu at Aurelio’s. Don’t forget the excellent choice of craft beers you’ll find on the menu. So, check the latest at Aurelio’s. It’s time well spent.
What to get: OK, it’s called Aurelio’s Pizza, but it’s not just about the pizza. My recommendation? The mostaccioli with meat sauce is outstanding. It has plenty of meat sauce with it, but an extra meatball is a nice supplement. It’s a generous helping, so indulge yourself. Normally, I’d go with a craft beer, but on this occasion, I went old school: Pabst’s Old Style, to be exact. There, I’ve said it.
What’s the cost: Entrees run $8-$17.
