My wife and I eat here every time we come to Chicago and it is never disappointing. The linguine with red clam sauce and spaghetti Bolognese are outstanding. The service is excellent. I have recommended Rosbud to many folks and they all agree. Outstanding and always something to look forward to.

I like this little Italian place. They took very good care of me when I needed a meal late at night after a long day. My waiter was anxious to please. When I asked about whether they offered a certain dish, he said no, but they could make it for me. This is a small restaurant in a lower level... More

The portions are generous and flavorful. We always eat here on our trips to Chicago. We did not get to sit near a window so it was a little less enjoyable than usual. Would have preferred on tap Peroni instead of in the bottle. The wait staff was terrific.

Good food and an enjoyable setting. We were lucky enough to have our party of five seated right in the corner window over looking the intersection--great on a snowy Chicago night. Everyone enjoyed the food--even those who truly know Italian. Service was good. Prices were not a bargain, but not really out of line either. Lasagna portion was cartoonishly large.... More

I've eaten here twice and the food is excellent. They give you more than you can finish though. The side salad was heaping with lots of colorful greens, and other vegetables as well as olives and such. It was a meal in itself. The chicken and pasta was also very good but was too full to finish. It's a great... More

We stopped here for lunch - I had chicken piccata and my friend had a salmon salad. Both were large portions and were delicious. The only disappointment was the side of pasta that came with my entree. The first order was cold so I asked to have it replaced. Unfortunately both times the pasta was so overloaded with marinara sauce... More

On our cross country tour of America we stayed overnight in Chicago, not wanting to eat breakfast in the hotel we called in here as we had noticed it while wandering around Michigan Avenue. We were pleasant surprised - good tasty food, attentive and helpful service.

If you like the Chicago atmosphere, old Chicago charm and Italian food you HAVE to give this a try. The food is off the charts. It does not come any fresher or tastier. Service was great, food was great, drinks perfect. I have rated this restaurant before and it does not change. everything was perfect again and again.

We had a good time at Rosebuds. The food was great and we enjoyed it. The waiter was nice and the bathrooms were clean. The prices were high but not higher than we expected. We had a late lunch and unfortunately were a little too late for lunch. The waiter was very friendly and courteous. The reason I am giving... More

Stopped here for a drink with my wife and was not impressed. Bartender was more busy trying to impress to regulars (I think he was trying to get an invitation to their NY Eve party) than doing his job.
