Rosebud's is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Chicago and I had a small, private wedding reception here. The stuffed artichoke is beyond good, appetizers to-die-for, soups are flavorful and generous with ingredients. Totally delicious. On Valentine's Day they offer some amazing desserts that are worth sampling in abundance.

User review by amandalisinski – You get so much food for the price. The resturant is beautiful inside, and the food is wonderful. If you are going to go to one of the Rosebud's Resutrants, this is the one that I would go to. I would go back myself, and I would recommend it to everyone. I have a hard time going out for Italian food anywhere else now.

Little Italy legend serves up hearty Italian specialties in a cozy, comfortable setting. – After nearly 30 years, it's still good, hearty and garlicky. The original in the chain of local Italian eateries, The Rosebud goes for a cozy living-room feel with a dining room with faux-wood-paneled walls, low ceilings and library shelves. An oversize portrait of Ol' Blue Eyes, wine glass in hand, complements the feel of Old World Italian hospitality. The menu boasts range of Italian specialties (caprese salad, fettuccine Alfredo, linguine with clams) and Rosebud signatures (homemade cavatelli, chicken Vesuvio). Homemade noodles make all the difference in meaty, baked lasagna, and pasta portions are big enough to feed the whole family. End with a delicious, liquored-up tiramisu.

Outstanding Service – When I visited here the food was saporous, and the service was impeccable. The host pulled out our chairs and our server placed our napkins in our lap. The servers are very charming and professional. Clams and Stuffed Mushrooms were ambrosial. This is a great place..Highly recommended.

Best Italian in Chicago – I've been to Spiaggia, Coco Pazzo, and Gene & Georgetti's. Throughout all those dining experiences I was pining for Rosebud's cuisine. Service, however, is gruff and rushed. But hey, they have a takeout menu!

Thank you, Orson Welles – What this great restaurant lacks in atmosphere is more than made up for in the delicious-and huge-portions of great Italian food. Arriving early on the evening after Christmas, and with no reservations, we were seated quickly and found the service to be friendly and informative. Nice to find a place that indeed lives up to its reputation.

Not too shabby – I thought Rosebud was fairly nice, but pricey for what you got. I think a better place not listed is Orso's on N Wells. Excellent food, and the best, most romantic first date ever atmosphere!! :)

Best Italian Food In Town – Not much to say about Rosebuds except that it has the best Italian food in town. It's expensive, but you get alot of food. You probably could have the leftovers for the next day's lunch and dinner. You get seated right away and it's great for a large party. It's very clean and is very nice and cozy. The only thing that is remotely bad is that it is expensive. I would deffinetly reccomend this restaurant to anyone who wants some good Italian food.
