About 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.

Rosebud Italian Specialties & Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews
I haven't been to Rosebuds for a while and in an attempt to try something different, we went. It is fussy, but not too fussy. It wasn't cheap, but a decent value. Service was very good, but not great. But the food was very good. We will be back. We enjoyed the experience. I did like that it was quiet enough to talk across the table, however the restaurant was not full. Still it seems loud is what some restaurants want, why I don't know, but I hate it.
Lunch was good, we each had a salad, pretty pricey for lettuce. Service was off from what we have had in the past. My wife ordered soup and salad with salad dressing on the side. They dressed the salad and forgot the soup. They offered to make a new one but she said no.
It was New Years Eve and we were seated at 8:30 for a 7:30 reservation. This was most likely due to people lingering at their tables and no Faust of the restaurant. The bartenders did a great job taking care of all the people waiting to be seated. Food was excellent and was served promptly without feeling rushed.
We celebrated New Years Eve at Rosebud's as we did the last couple of years and nothing has changed. The food and service was great. Their special menu as well as their regular was open to choose from. Also liked the valet service there as it gets very crowded.
What a disappointing meal tonight at Rosebud Naperville. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday with her parents.
First, my mother-in-law orders a glass of wine, a reisling. They didn't bother to tell us they were out and simply gave her something else... without mentioning it. Well, she noticed. Who wouldn't? I believe it was the bartender, as he basically ignored me when I asked for a drink menu. Second, they also ran out of the replacement for the reisling. Third, the two chicken alfredos were sour in taste. Though removed from the bill, they did so after tax, not before. I guess it's the newer new math. Honestly, that's a first for me.
Oh and we did get a free dessert. So.... there's that...
Katie as hostess & Dylan as our server were both excellent. Took our parents out for Christmas Eve lunch and they were very attentive to the needs of long time Naperville residents & now seniors.
Portions are extremely generous (leftovers galore). Menu is diverse and interesting.
We have visited the former & this location.
We all felt that salt content in all dishes could really be reduced - let the decide more on that.
Overall very nice holiday lunch experience and great to take the parents out in downtown Naperville - where they have lived for 64 years.
I do not appreciate showing up for my reservation and being told to wait at the bar for 20 minutes until we text you
I counted over a dozen empty tables we could have been seated at immediately.
We end up seated at a booth that was empty when we arrived. What gives with this - just trying to add to my bar bill?
I’d really like an explanation
Sorry, but not that impressed. We were seated, bread given to us with a small pate of olive oil big enough for only one piece of bread. There were three of us. Server impatient when we asked for more time to determine our drinks. Never did get lemon that was asked for.I'm a good eater, but HATE when I am congratulated when I clean my plate. What, I'm not supposed to? Why are servers surprised and act shocked when this happens? Bill totally messed up. My meal rung up on my friends card. Just not memorable.
We are regulars at the downtown rush street sister restaurant “Carmine’s” so we are very familiar with the menu and pricing. Our first time at this naperville location. Ate at the bar. Grilled calamari and Caesar to share as starters. My husband got his usual chicken dish and me the mussels. The mussels were not the freshest or size we have become accustomed to in the city. A few were actually just starting to go off and or breakdown in their shells. A disappointment. Also a disappointment was the tab. The above food (all appetizer portions except the chicken) plus the rosebud brand bottle of rose, one glass of red and a martini...$171 without the tip...I thought it was a bit much. Overall we will return but probably not to this location. Great bartenders and bar service even when packed.
We've stopped by for a table in the past, always a wait. We had reservations this night and used a gift card. Hostesses and wait staff are very pleasant. We were given a menu with the wrong price of the item my husband ordered. He requested a split between the 2 prices. The waitress said no and he asked to speak to the manager. The waitress then checked and said the manager agreed to split the difference in the cost. So that was a plus. Enjoyed the food - seafood risotto and lasagna. Portions were large enough for lefts overs the next day. So that moderated the price a bit. Lasagna was much better than the local Maggiano's. Alcohol cost as usual is 2-3x what you can pick up in the store yourself. Overall an enjoyable meal.
Great Food and Service... but sitting in the 'back room' was very disappointing. We were sat away from the main dining room in what can only be described as a last minute add on to throw a few more tables onto the floor. The main issue was the noise. There were only 4 tables in the room, but the layout of the room amplified everyone conversation to the point that we had to yell across the table to hear ourselves.
My husband and I enjoyed an evening out to view the lovely Christmas lights of Naperville. We enjoyed dinner first at Rosebud which has the best square noodles and eggplant parmigiano in the area in our opinion. I was a bit disappointed that they no longer make the rolled eggplant which was so delicious. We met at the previous Rosebud 14 yrs. years ago and have been together ever since!
Made the mistake of going here on s Saturday night, very crowded. Clearly my wife and I were out for a nice dinner. We are sat against the wall with a group of 12 on one side and a group of 8 on the other. Needless to say we could barely hear each other. The food is good but a bit over priced. I’d go back during the week perhaps.
