Rosebud Italian Specialties & Pizzeria
DeliciousOur waiter seemed a bit busy, but then again the place was packed & they were still on a wait at 9! But even with that, all our food came out perfectly timed, and everything was spectacular! I had the stuffed mushrooms, and my boyfriend got the tiger shrimp. He even ate one of my mushrooms - even tho he hates mushrooms - and he loved it. Also, the baked cavatelli was phenomenal for someone like me - a self-proclaimed cheese addict, and we were really impressed by the portion sizes on both that and the pork chops! We didn't even have room, but forced ourselves to have the "bombolinis" (sp?), basically giant, fresh doughnut holes with the best dipping sauces ever. Definitely no regrets, and we will be going back again!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectFrom the drinks to the food, everything was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful.

Made reservations for 8 people at 7:00 pm. we didn't get seated till after 7:30. I wanted to surprise my wife by getting to our table and having her see her kids there waiting. Other then that glitch the evening was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite hangout!"Rosebud" in Napervillel is our favorite hangout at this time. My husband and I love sitting outside when it's warm, enjoying not only the delicious food but also the pretty flower boxes and peoplewatching. We love the inside as well and often come for a late lunch or early dinner - our favorites are the Caesar Salad, Mussel appetizers and the Linguine Mariaio (clams in White Sauce over pasta). However, this time we came with our children and grandchildren to celebrate an early Mother's Day dinner on Saturday evening. Lorenzo was our waiter and he took great care of us adults as well was wonderful with the kids. We all loved our meals - the Salmon and Tilappia Specials were super tasty and hugely generous. Overall experience 5 stars!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceOur server, Nicole, found out it was our 25th anniversary. She went out of her way to make our dinning experience a very memorable one. We would go back just because of her.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceI had a great expierence at rosebuds. The food was excellent and our waitress was so nice.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood portions are more thanFood portions are more than ample. We split a house salad and a veal marsala. The bread is delicious with the oil, cheese and pepper. I tried a pomegranate martini which was tasty but a bit pricey.
My complaint is the acoustics. It is difficult to hear one another. Music is piped in and not at all necessary and just adds to the chaotic noise.
I have had lunch here previously and going around 11:30 gives you some time to talk more easily.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionDecided on Rosebud for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant was packed and the atmosphere was casual and fun. Our server was very attentive and gave us time to make decisions about our dinners. In spite of being very busy, we didn't feel rushed. My tilapia was excellent as was our caesar salad. My wife's entree was not what she expected so our server encouraged her to order another entree which was an excellent eggplant parmesan. Overall a very positive experience that was certainly enhanced by our server's attentiveness and the bustling atmosphere.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfood is exceptional, especiallyfood is exceptional, especially the eggplant salad and gramdmas gravy5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was veryThe food and service was very good.

It was the first time dining with both of our children (4 1/2 and 13 months) and the staff couldn't have been better. It definitely helped that our kids were well behaved, but the entire staff was accommodating and friendly. Excellent food and service, all while dining with our family. Can't beat it!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food and the peopleEnjoyed the food and the people watching. The service was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but LOUD. No seriousGreat food but LOUD. No serious conversations here.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRosebud offered a nice, solidRosebud offered a nice, solid dining experience in Naperville. Since we had an early reservation, we were able to request one of the booths. The few booth they have are provided along the side wall, and provide a more intimate dining experience with extra room. I recommend trying one of their specialty cocktails from the bar. From the dining menu, the square noodles and the Veal Parmesan are recommended. Vanilla gelato for dessert was nice, but nothing special. The desert portion was huge, so it is enough to share.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were unable to talk toWe were unable to talk to each other without shouting and leaning in to the other's ear. Toward the end of meal, starting to get a headache because of the noise level, very loud.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe excellent food is onlyThe excellent food is only matched by the service. This is a great place to eat and enjoy yourself.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. LovelyGreat food and service. Lovely room but acoustics are awful.
