The waitress was not attentive at all as even when we left we were still waiting on certain items that we asked for when we first sat down, food seem bland and pasta over cooked, presentation on sausage and spaghetti could have been better as well.

We were outside, so ambience was at the mercy of the weather.
The food is always fantastic, but service could be improved. It didn’t really hurt anything - we had a lovely time. Our server was also working inside and seemed to be tending bar, which I suppose is a result of Covid-19. They may not be sure how many servers they need at the current time.

This was our first visit to The Rosebud. We traveled two hours and it was worth every minute and every penny. The service and food were outstanding. The pace of the meal delivery was perfect. My wife and I enjoyed the meal experience for over two hours. The Rosebud on Taylor St is a must for anyone who enjoys great Italian food and atmosphere. It is a throwback experience. We can’t wait to get back to Little Italy and visit The Rosebud.

We have been coming here 30 years and have never had a bad meal. Rosebud is always fantastic and today was no exception. Due to COVID we ate outside and the service was superb. Taylor street is closed Fri-Sun, so the area is relaxed with people exercising and strolling by. Highly recommended.

Went to Rosebud for my son’s birthday, and Taylor Street was blocked off for outdoor dining. We were seated outside, all tables were spaced at least six feet apart, and waiters and servers wore masks. Menu was slightly reduced from their norm, but there were plenty of selections. Everything was great and it was an enjoyable meal.

It was just ok but overpriced for the food and could’ve used an umbrella etc outside for some shade. Nothing terrible and the service was good but not really worth going back unless it’s a special occasion

The staff was really extraordinary with all thats going on. Definitely a smaller menu but still great options, everyone is being really careful and all tables are far enough away, adhering to all protocols which is tough to do. I will definitely be returning.

Our waiter was quite friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Food arrived very quickly.
Both of our entree's were good, not great. They seemed in a rush to get us out of there, they didn't want us lounging around. Our waiter gave us our check and came back in one minute to pick it up even though we both had half a glass left. In and out in under an hour and there wasn't anyone waiting behind us.

A little disappointed with the appetizers that are usually phenomenal. The Veal Parm was also lackluster, and it's usually my go to entree of choice. The Zupa De Pesce was excellent.

We eat one meal at Rosebuds every time we come to Chicago. Although we keep coming back the food quality is inconsistent. It’s amazing, it’s good, it’s excellent then it’s ok...one person will order a dish that another tries and loves and will order that dish at our next visit only to be disappointed that it isnt as good as the previous visit.

The Rosebud on Taylor has become our staple for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. The food is delicious, reasonably priced, and there are new specials every time. Beyond that, Teddy, our regular server, provides an incredible experience, recommending the proper amount of food and drink to share each time. We request to sit in his area specifically every visit, highly recommend!

It was nice quiet and intimate setting. Little bit of music playing and the lights down low. The food was very very good, and the service was impeccable. Our server, Chris, was outstanding. We are definitely coming back here.
