The customer is always rightWhat I love most about RoSals is that the menu is really just a suggestion. You can get anything you want how you want it. You can change sauces, change ingredients and basically create your own meal. No one ever responds with "the chef won't be happy" when you ask for a dish to be customized. I have heard that before at other places and have not returned to those restaurants. The food is awesome and obviously prepared to order. Going to RoSals is like going to a friend's house for dinner. The staff is friendly and Joe (the owner) never fails to stop by and chat. He treats everyone as if he has known them all his life. Great Food, Friendly Staff and a homey atmosphere; what more could you ask for?5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRoSal's good solid Italian foodThis is a very good neighborhood Italian restaurant. It has a good menu with lots of standard dishes done very well and several choices not usually found on an Italian menu. It is well worth the trip. It's a little on the high side for Italian food, but worth it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Chicago spotLoved the food! Great service! Overall, fantastic place!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best lasagna in town!Rosal's has the best lasagna in Chicago. Their fried ravioli is awesome as well. Two forks up!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great mealMy wife and I have been to Rosal's numerous times. We love to bring friends to experience the high quality of food and the friendly wait staff and atmosphere. Since every dish at Rosal's is cooked to order, they are great at handling special requests. For instance, my wife loves Fettuccine Alfredo So when she asked for a side of it instead of the pasta that came with her veal dish --- no problem. Rosal's is one of my very favorite Italian restaurants. My big mistake is that sometimes I wait too long to make a reservation and I find they are all booked up!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMYou couldn't ask for a betterYou couldn't ask for a better place on Taylor Street! RoSal's has it all -- authentic food, great service, a family feel, and a very relaxed vibe. It's like going to your mother's kitchen for dinner, without the aggravation! Highly recommend.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe reviews were right aboutThe reviews were right about the lasagna, a must try!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful, relaxing, friendlyA wonderful, relaxing, friendly restaurant. A true Italian restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRoSals is one of the bestRoSals is one of the best fines and restaurants in Little Italy. Joe and Linda are wonderful and make the dining experience a real treat. I recommend RoSals to EVERYONE. The food is consistent each and every time we have been there and that's what I look for in meals, my favorite dishes are prepared consistent. The bread is out of this world and the sausage and peppers are worth the drive from the south suburbs.

We could not have been more pleased. We read other reviews and they were correct, RoSal's is FANTASTIC!!! It's in the heart of Little Italy so you better like Italian food. They really had an extensive list of dishes to choose from and all of the dishes sounded wonderful. Our table was ready immediately when we walked in and our server, though young and a bit green about their wines, was nothing but helpful and knew his favorites on the menu. Our meal was outstanding. We will be coming back to this place for years to come. Great family dining experience and best of all, the owner Joe came up to us and personally thanked us for coming in. Classy and most appreciated.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways very good. Clams wereAlways very good. Clams were not very good this time, dry and over cooked.
