What a wonderful experience! The food was amazing with all of those flavors balanced so perfectly.

Wonderful food and fun service. Great fresh made pasta and huge desserts. Ask for the "Wisconsin" latte.

I know that this address has a lot of turnover and caters to tourists and suburbanites. Definitely the best part about this restaurant was the genuinely kind and warm host staff.
We selected an interesting Super Tuscan which kept us delighted on our valentine’s date.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is crammed and the cozy red sofa simply takes up too much space. They seated us at a very uncomfortable table that was jostled by wait staff on numerous occasions; we nearly lost our bottle of wine!
Now the food: maybe the worst Caprese salad in the city that should have never been served given the nature of the tomatoes. The polenta/prawn was very rich and buttery, perhaps too decadent.
The plates barely fit the tiny table but I appreciate the large hot pasta bowls.
It took a particularly lengthy time for the table to get turned down but I was in too much of a good mood to mention it.
Ultimately, I’m fairly certain I will not be returning as there are a number of Italian restaurants in the city with better ambience and execution. We may return when It’s yet again a different restaurant. Sorry.

The service is outstanding. This is my third time at the restaurant and I have enjoyed all of my times at the restaurant. The food is great but what I really like about the restaurant is the excellent service from the second you walk in. I will go back every time I am in Chicago.

Went for lunch, place was beautiful but the service was okay. Felt off being there for lunch, place was dead and only one waitress. Seemed like dinner would have been a much different experience. Owner walked around and asked if we needed anything which was very nice. The waitress was not very helpful when asked for suggestions. Food was authentic Italian and ingredients were very fresh. Probably would not go back for lunch again, dinner we would try.

We knew about Rosebud Steakhouse on Walton since I work in the area, but wanted to try some of their other restaurants. This is definitely a place for good, authentic Italian. The food was excellent and drinks great as well. The price was a bit high for Italian, but made sense considering the location. It's easy for tourists to reach if they don't want to go out of their way and visit Little Italy. I'd say it's still affordable none the less and you can definitely have a good time without breaking the bank. And that's considering the fact that I only make middle class wage. I have already recommended to friends. Great time with my wife!
