Perfect For:
  • Good for a Date
  • Casual
  • Special Occasion
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.

My wife and I love this restaurant, because the service is quick, and excellent! Within a minute of sitting down, our waiter was there, asking for our drink order, then bringing bread minutes later. Our food was delivered quickly, and the portions are huge! My wife and I can actually make three meals out of our entrees. The meal is delicious, prepared timely, and very economical! I heartily recommend Rosebud!! Great job !!!

Had a get together with friends for lunch on a week day. Great food and services. Can’t be happier! Parking was a little tricky. The parking lot right outside of the restaurant is small but across the street there is a three level free parking garage. Very convenient.

This was our second visit to Rosebud and it definitely did not disappoint. We sat at the bar, ordered appetizers (Sausage & Peppers and Stuffed Mushrooms) - FANTASTIC! Danny and the other bartender were very atttentive despite being extremely busy. We wound up just ordering dinner at the bar (Wedge salad and Spaghetti & Meatballs - the size of baseballs) and topped it off with a cannoli. Perfect meal for my 52nd birthday! We look forward to our next visit in August.

Everything was wonderful food and service wise. Our server was outstanding! However we were seated RIGHT next to the kitchen and service area which was loud and a bit annoying as so many people were in and out. Being our first time, wasn’t the most awesome location for a table.

My wife has emailed the corporate office with no reply back. Service was terrible. We were there for Easter Sunday and our waiter spent more time at the hostess desk than waiting on us. 30 mins after we sat just for him to take our order. 4 adults and 2 young kids and we were there over 2 hours. We sat down at 1:10 in the afternoon with lots of open tables. The women's bathroom was a complete disaster. Filth, dirt, and someone had a women's accident all over the toilet. My late wife worked for this company for almost 9 years and it was never like this. I think it's amazing how many things in this world from tv's, wine, stores and restaurants, etc., think that all they need is a reputation to keep business going. Why try if you just keep on getting people in the door. What a shame.

We were there for Easter. Everything was great except fish salad which was served with chunks of ice we guess came from storing on ice. Manager offered to bring something else instead. We declined so he brought over some yummy cannolis. Just a one off because of busy day probably. We would definitely go back.

Food is good, however, they charged us $15 for bringing our own birthday cake for my granddaughter. She has extreme allergies and we had to bring a birthday cake that we knew was safe. They proceeded to charge us $15 additional on our bill. For this reason we will not be back.

We always love the food but we were disappointed with where we sat! I made the reservations a couple weeks prior for our daughters birthday and we were put in the back room in a corner. Would have definitely wanted to be in the main part of the restaurant! Also, I called earlier and asked for a certain bottle of wine to be on the table in celebration of our daughters birthday and had to ask for it once we arrived.

My husband and I had not eaten out for a while - and chose Rosebud's because we were in the mood for Italian food. We could have sat in the dining room - but chose to sit at the bar since there were seats available and it seemed cozier. We had a sausage appetizer that was on special and it was wonderful. Because it was so filling, we split the 8-finger cavetelli and the portion size was even large for the two of us. We were stuffed after splitting half of it - and didn't have any room left for dessert.

The bartender could not have been better - he was quick to fill both our water and wine. I wasn't sure what kind of red wine to order - and he let me taste a couple in order to select the one that I liked best. We ordered a bottle and he was on-hand whenever either of our glasses looked low. The atmosphere was wonderful for our "date night". We forgot how much we enjoyed Rosebuds and will definitely return soon!

Had not been here for a couple of years. Can't wait to go back now! Mare the server was exceptional. Manager was great and very friendly. Food was huge portions, especially the Chicakn Par! My gosh, one of the very best Chicken Parms in Chicago and the dinner portion could feed 3! Table bread is warm and really good especially with the olive oil, parm cheese and red pepper flakes that we mixed on one of the plates. Tiramisu was incredible.

We go there a lot. This is the second time in a row that my spaghetti was watery. That’s so wrong. Both times we went were on Sunday’s. Not sure if they have a different Chef or they have lower their standards.

Our service was extremely poor. We have been coming to this restaurant for years and this past experience was terrible. We were placed in the back of the restaurant with our 4 kids, which was fine, but the server paid us zero attention. When he first came to the table we asked if we could place the kids' orders immediately and then take an extra minute to decide what the adults wanted. Long story short, the kids' food came and was eaten before the waiter ever came back to even ask what my husband and I wanted to drink. The kids were ready to leave and my husband and I hadn't even had anything at all. We left the restaurant very frustrated.

Great atmosphere and service. Food was good but was disappointed in the prices. We ordered baked clams and at $12.50 per half a dozen you would at least expect to taste the meat portion of the clam. but not the case. Disappointed because that’s why we went there.

My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day here. It wasn't on the day, so not as crowded as we've experienced in the past. Pace of the meal was perfect. I had the baked ziti and my wife had the baked cavatelli, both were excellent. And don't miss the chocolate layer cake for dessert! Last but not least, we ate our fill and still carried out plenty for another meal and dessert.

Arriving 25 minutes early for our Rez we went to the bar and couldn’t get a drink. Bar tenders wouldn’t pay attention to guests. Steak was way over cooked and the waiter forgot things. My 8 finger pasta was great but the service was frustrating. I’m not sure I’ll ever go back.
