Rosebud Old World Italian
Food was great. Table wasFood was great. Table was small for four people. Wine 11.00 per glass was way to high. Water was never refilled.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten here a few timesI've eaten here a few times and my one complaint is that it is often noisy. This time they kept me waiting about one-half an hour for my table but gave me one in a quiet side room which was great. The food always has ample portions and is tasty.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service on Mother's Day!We were able to get a reservation through Open Table at Rosebud in Schaumburg on Mother's Day. We did have to wait a little while for the table still, but we were able to enjoy a drink at the bar. The food was outstanding and the service was great, even on this busy day. Thank you for a wonderful Mother's Day dinner! Can't wait to return again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodI first ate at Rosebud over 20 years ago, at their restaurant in Little Italy, in Chicago, W. Taylor Street. I was very impressed by what I had back then. So, 20 years later, I finally got around to returning. I am a garlic freak. There was, and maybe still is, a restaurant, in the North Beach section of San Francisco, that touts their intense garlic flavor. And Rosebud is similar. Both the appetizer and my main dish were robust with garlic.
I don't often find Chicken Vesuvio, but it was on the menu, and I ordered it. It was phenomenal.
My fiance had the Ravioli with meat sauce and meat balls, and her's was also exceptional.
We shared a dessert which was also delicious, and most adequate.
We both brought home leftovers.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant Classic ItalianThe food at Rosebud is consistently good. The dishes are nothing modern, but good old classics like chicken marsala and veal saltimboca. If you are very old-world Italian, they have a neckbones special! The only downside is that the menu is a little pricey for what you get.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM5 Year AnniversaryMy wife and I were married at Rosebud Old World Italian 5 years ago on May 10th. We enjoyed ourselves and the food so much; we decided we would go there every year for our anniversary.
The service, form the bus boy thru management is exceptional. This establishment and it employees truly know how to treat a customer like they would a guest in their own home.
The quality of the food is top-notch along with their wine selection. The food is always consistent, served at the proper temperature, and delicious.
Recommendation: If you cannot decide between steak, and pasta, you should consider the “Grandmas Gravy”. This dish combine’s fall apart tender pot roast, with pin wheel pasta,andjust enough gravy to not be over powering.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite for group businessA favorite for group business dinners. Always very accommodating. Food consistently excellent.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find! So good we ateWhat a find! So good we ate there two nights in a row while here for business. My only complaint would be too much delicious food...the portions are gigantic ! I regret being too full to try the desserts which looked great.
Next time I will split an entree to leave room!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an 8 PM reservation butHad an 8 PM reservation but wasn't seated until 8:30PM. Waiter offered us a free appetizer which was nice. Enjoyed the Baked clams, especially the sauce that came with it. We each had a steak (one was Vesuvio and the other Italiano). I would recommend both. For dessert I had cannoli's which were good but my partner had tiramisu which she REALLY enjoyed. Martini's were a bit pricy for quantity given. All in all, we would return again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways have a great meal here...theAlways have a great meal here...the eggplant salad was delish!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe night we dined it wasThe night we dined it was cold and blustery outside. But the atmosphere inside was warm and professional. The portions were large enough to take home a doggy bag. The service was excellent. I wouldn't change a thing.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNanna's Gravy is AWESOME!Nanna's Gravy is AWESOME! Artichoke soup was great as well...4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are a big fans of the originalWe are a big fans of the original Rosebud on Taylor Street, and had tried the Rosebud in Naperville (before their fire) and wasn't as happy with it as the Taylor Street location. The Rosebud Old World Italian was great. Beautiful dining room, and very crowded on a Saturday night. The food was excellent, and the portions as large as we remember from the past. The four of us had a wonderful evening. My only complaint......the noise level. Very, very loud. It really goes beyond "lively". Must be the gorgeous high ceilings.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe apparently went on an unusuallyWe apparently went on an unusually busy night. We had to wait 20-30 minutes, even though we had a reservation. They did give us a free appetizer (without asking or complaining). Food was great Our guests commented that it was the best italian food they had had. Service was also very good. My only negative was the noise level. It's very noisy and hard to hold a conversation, but overall a very good experience. Would definitely go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out. Staff includingGreat night out. Staff including hostess and wait staff really pleasant. Someone in our party order the special 'Baked Chicken Siciliano' I think it was called. It was fabulous and was enjopyed by almost the entire restaurant including other patrons. We laughed, took pictures and then enjoyed some of it, but mostly taking it home. It was huge but made for great conversation with everyone. Nice presentation of all entrees. We all enjoyed our meals that were ordered and will definitely be back. I personally went to work the following day telling all how good the food was and what a nice experience we had with other patrons as well as the employees (the hostess was a sweety) just sorry I didnt get her name to pass on to you.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMService was exceptional.Service was exceptional. All the servers, bus boys, etc really hustled.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great restaurant toWhat a great restaurant to take the whole family,food is excellent and the service is great. I have been there several times and the quality is always top notch!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a little hectic inIt was a little hectic in there and the food was a disappointment. I have been there several times before and the food was excellent. The layout for the brunch did not work well and everytime I went up for food they were out of several items. For the price there wasn't a large selection and this is the first time we left a brunch feeling hungry. The bloody Mary bar looked great though!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was very good,The service was very good, but the atmosphere was quite loud and it was difficult to others at my table. The food was excellent with a variety of to die for menu items to choose from. Overall the experience was a positive one. My family and I will definitely be back!z3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is just a very specialThis is just a very special restaurant for us. Our second date was the first time we came here (some time back) and the evening was perfect so, ever since then we have always gone back for any special occasions and have never been disappointed (and this was no exception). The service was excellent and the food was perfect (as always). The noise level was a bit higher than I would have preferred but then, it was prime dinner time on a Friday evening so the place was full (despite being full however, they were able to seat us immediately upon our arrival even with our being 10 minutes late for our reservation). Regardless, this restaurant is highly recommended for romantic and/or special occasions. Enjoy!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA major fan of The RosebudA major fan of The Rosebud in Chicago, we went here to celebrate a special occasion and were NOT disappointed! The host offered his congratulations as soon as we walked in the door, as did our server. We were seated promptly at a lovely table by the window and attended to perfectly. Our food came out hot, perfectly prepared, and delicious! We had an absolutely wonderful time thanks to our server, Deanna! Will definitely return!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointingRosebud never disappoints you. Everything is very good and consistent.Count on a good experience here.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
