Despite the decent calamari, we found the rest of our meal, from the stale bread to the absolutely flavorless chicken, to be very disappointing. Being from Chicago we know Italian food, and were surprised to find the quality at Rosebud to be that of a low grade chain. I would highly recommend a number of other restaurants (i.e.Quartinos, Topo Gigio)... More

You think an Italian chain restaurant in a large city would be ok. Don't overlook the Rosebud chain in Chicago. My husband and I like fine dining and Rosebud is always on the list when visiting the Windy City. Rosebud on Rush and Rosebud Steakhouse our are favorites. Crowded, active conversations- yes, but good quality, favorable sized portions are delicious.

The service was good. The food was average. The atmosphere was less than average. We went with 3 adults and 2 young children. No children's menu, which was not a problem and they were exceedingly accomodating of our childrens' wishes. This was the first time we ate here. When in the area, we normally go to Carmine's (a part of... More

Stopped in for a business lunch and loved it. Im gluten free and that was not an issue for them. They made me a gluten free meal that was outstanding. My guests loved it to. Great location. So glad we stopped in.

We had an early reservation on a Friday night. They where in a big rush. The entire meal felt rushed. The fried calamari was gritty like it had not been washed well enough. The pasta dish I had was watery because the pasta had not been drained adaqutely. And my wife had a hard time cutting her veal with the... More

Excellent food, fair prices & great service. We went on a Friday evening and got a table within 10 minutes. The service was impeccable. I had the linguine with shrimp and broccoli. I liked it a lot but I could not finish 1/2 of it because it was so much. I would definitely go back.

Dined with a party of 6 on a Friday evening. The food was fantastic, and there was way more than we could eat. The Chicken Parmesan was wonderful with two huge cutlets that two could easily share. The Calamari was crisp and tasty with plenty for all of us. Wine list was good, but no vintages on the list. A... More

On a recent Chicago visit, my daughter and I stopped at Rosebud on Rush. This was our second visit and we were a little disappointed that inside eating was full. The interior of the restaurant is quite lovely and we enjoyed the food on our first visit. The weather was too cold for al fresco dining so we sat "outside"... More

Great option for lunch in an area surrounded by chain coffee shops, pizza joints, and bar food options. This is a notch above. Great menu choice with main course between $14 and $20 each. Attentive service too in a nicely decorated (if somewhat claustrophobic as it's in a basement) atmosphere.

Too much food for anyone to eat. I had the Tortellini Carbonara. They use prosciutto instead of bacon like most restaurants. So that was a big plus. Service was excellent. Before you order make sure you ask how big the portions will be. A couple of people in my party ordered the specials which were surf and turf and seafood... More
