A word from Rosebud Italian Specialties & Pizzeria
Rosebud Italian Specialties & Pizzeria provides an innovative perspective on traditional Italian cuisine with a chef driven, weekly changing menu, focusing on regional dishes and fresh ingredients. In addition to Rosebud classics including Chicken Vesuvio and Square Noodles which are staples on the menu, thin crust, Chicago-style pizzas smothered in an assortment of toppings are a fresh addition. Pies are large enough for a table to share as an appetizer, encouraging guests to savor the flavors and one another’s company before indulging in a second course. The goal is to present two distinct dining options, a more casual, family friendly pizzeria offering carry-out as well as a white tablecloth dining room where pizzas are served in addition to the weekly menu. The energetic atmosphere throughout both spaces is casual rustic Italian with striking hardwood floors, a Stone Pizza Oven, and an Antipasto Bar, providing an ideal atmosphere to enjoy a relaxing meal.

Diner Reviews
  • "Very Loud, not a place for a nice conversation, but food is good"

  • "Rosebud is one of my favorite Italian restaurant known for its fabulous fish salad. The pasta entrees are also pretty fabulous. A neighborhood gem and great for special occasions."

  • "The food was great and fast service despite it was a Friday night. Definitely get a reservation, since the restaurant was crowded."

  • "Service was quick and good. Portion of veal marsala was big and we split it. Good sauce and tender meat. We also split the side salad which was very large. We were celebrating a birthday and enjoyed the dessert served. We enjoyed our evening and will return. Best to eat early to avoid increase in noise as it gets louder as more guests arrive."

  • "We love the stuffed mushroom appetizer and the seafood ravioli was delicious. The moment we walked in the door it was like they were waiting for us. The service was fantastic. We love the energetic atmosphere, the great service and the food is always delicious."

  • "Was at Chicago Prime Italian the weekend prior, equal quality of food. Chicago Prime was much nicer on the inside and had slightly better service. Smaller dining area than expected, and we had a bad table location. Good service. The calamari was pretty bad, but all else was good."

  • "Excellent food and service. A true hidden gem in downtown Naperville. My wife and I will be going back there again!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the large salad and pizza we shared. Also, the climatic appetizer was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The only problem was that our courses were rushed when the waiter said that he would delay each course to give us some time."

    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "My son goes to college there and told us about this place. Food was great and prices weren't too bad. They had a very nice wine selection as well. I was shocked at how quick the food came. Also, my husband has chicken and fish allergies and he can't even eat anything that may have touched chicken so preparation can be challenging. Our waiter took time to write down the concerns and made sure all was fine. True test was how he was feeling afterwards, and he was feeling great. So they obviously took proper preparation care."

  • "There were 4 of us dining here. We all ordered something different on the menu and all the dinners were great. They give you plenty to eat, too. Service was great and the music they play while dining is wonderful!"

  • "Everything on the menu is fantastic and wonderful service. Our family favorite!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The restaurant has an Italian theme, but no sense of Italian food. For a main course, we chose pasta. My lasagna was a brick of some kind of cheese with 3 or 4 leaves of pasta and a tinily thin layer of ground beef. It tasted of cardboard. I could not eat more than a few mouthfuls. My wife's penne were a gelatinous goo and quite inedible. The service seemed to be organized around moving us through and out within 45 minutes. We resisted, of course. The main course arrived long before we finished our appetizers, and we were being pushed to receive the check or order more after only a few bites of the inedible pasta. Tables are close together and it was very noisy. Overall, very disappointing"

  • "Rosebud always has amazing food. Best Italian outside of the city. Usually servers are amazing also. This time, however, service was a bit sub-par. I can report that our entrees came out lightning fast. Food was plentiful and delicious. The menu offers a plethora of option. The seafood ravioli, one of the socials, was beyond amazing."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Once again what a delight to enjoy a meal at Rosebuds with great food and great service!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Just another awesome experience at Rosebod. Joe (the GM) and his staff really make you feel right at home.... And the food as always was "off the charts". Awesome"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The pasta portions were surprisingly large and quite delicious!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The place is loud....so loud the server struggles but it was a nice start to our evening. Chicken Marsala soupier than I like, but drinks were good and we had fun"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The food and service experience was very good but the physical plant problems with cold air drafts from the front door were annoying. Roebud has made attempts to minimize this problem but the cold air drafts were still noticeable which took away from the overall ambience.."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Tables placed right near front entrance, too close, no isolation/privacy from customers checking in with front desk and standing around waiting and then walking very close right past you. All tables too close together. Noise level very high, need to almost shout for conversation. Wine list very limited and uninteresting. Used to be much better many years ago. Waiters, waitresses seem uninterested in good service. Last thing, prices are very high for this type of dining. This used to be one of our favorite places to dine, but we will be coming back much less often if at all. There are other places to spend your money with better food, better service, better wine list, nicer ambiance."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "When my husband and I are in the mood for Italian food and don't want to put any thought into where we want to go.....we always go to Rosebud. The food is consistently good, they offer a variety of daily specials, the wine list is wonderful and the service is always top notch. No extra thought needs to go into choosing Rosebud."

  • "Server was very good. Speed of foid delivery was a liitle slower than usual."

  • "Traditional Italian food that was tasty. Served very hot. Waiter was excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was exceptional and the server was great. Unfortunately - the loud and extremely cramped dining room was the worst experience I've ever had. It was also a dance night for one of the local high schools. The dining room was filled with boysterous teens with no regard for the other people dining and the management made no attempt to control the behavior or noise -it was a terrible experience. More like a final four tournament than a restaurant. The tables were so crammed together - that I was able to hear every conversation around me, in addition to the one my husband and I were trying to have. I've been a Rosebud customer for 20+ years - this experienced has made me reconsider. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We now make an effort to stop here on weeknights, as weekend dining at Rosebud tends to be congested and a bit noisy. The only downside to our meal was we forgot that the a la carte salads are monstrous and should have been split between us. Both salads and main courses (chicken picata and cheese ravioli with tomato sauce) were excellent, as was my side dish of pasta. I managed to finish my pasta. As usual, the entrees were so generous that we both had the remainders boxed for dining at home. I chose an obscure Malbec to accompany the meal – one that I had found on their wine list on a previous visit. It was as delightful as I remembered. In summary, our meals were a solid 10 on a 10 scale; something we have come to expect from Rosebud."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Every Rosebud restaurant I have been to has not failed in serving delicious and authentic Italian food. Daily specials are always fantastic. The food really is terrific, and service is always second to none, however, I have a problem with some of the menu prices. I think it's obscene to charge $4 to trade pasta for potatoes (I know pasta is dirt cheap but come on), since some of the items that come with pasta typically come served with potatoes in other restaurants, or traditionally. The stuffed mushrooms appetizer is good, but again, the price is high and you only receive 4 small mushrooms for $11.50. Aside from some of the prices being high, I'd still visit again but would be more careful about what I order to not get nickel and dimed."

  • "Loved our dinner here, excellent attentive service and the food was outstanding. They use proper italian, fresh ingredients with makes all the difference. Would never normally order a Margarita pizza but here it is bursting with flavour and deliciousness"

  • "Food was great and the serving size was were more than ample together with the price! Waiter had personality plus!"

  • "My husband and I went to Rosebud on Tuesdy March 4th for dinner. We have been to Rosebud many times. We have taken groups there as well. Rosebud always delivers. On this occasion, I really wanted to eat lighter. I had had a heavy lunch out with friends. So, with the guidance of our very friendly and helpful waitress, I ended up with a half order of the house salad, Chicken Marsala and steamed broccolini. I'm not sure, with the dressing on the salad and Marsala sauce, if I was in fact doing myself any favors calorie wise, but I sure felt lighter and healthier without the pasta that I usually have, and the meal was still delicious."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Server was polite but completely inattentive throughout the non-busy period. Serving portions large, tilapia cooked tender, but side of angel hair was oversalted. My wife liked her rigatoni. This is like a corporate restaurant serving dishes made by line cooks, ok, but nothing special."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Great! Will be one of my regularly visited eateries. One of the best straight-up martinis in town."

  • "We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Our server was very attentive to our needs but not intrusive. It was for a special occasion, a birthday celebration, and a good time was had by all. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Rosebuds. I also want to mention that we were very fortunate to get a parking place but it was good to know that valet parking is available should you need it. Thanks for a memorable evening."
