We took a group of 10 people to Rosebud on Rush last week and had a great time! The food was excellent, great appetizers and great food. We also shared a dessert that was good as well. I will definitely be back!

I am a former Chicago dweller and had not eaten at Rosebud in several years, but remembered it to be wonderful and was looking forward to going back. This time it was pretty disappointing. Service was horrible. We had dinner at 9pm - the restaurant was not busy (3 occupied tables downstairs), yet it took 20 minutes to get a... More

We originally wanted to go to Giordano's across the street, we had just gotten to our hotel and we were hungry. Giordano's was about an hour wait, so we walked across the street to Rosebud. It was delicious! Our waiter was super sweet and the food was fabulous! Everyone in our party bragged about how good it was, and we... More

Rosebud on Rush is the perfect date spot or fun for the family. Ate dinner there Friday night and place was jammed. After eating my food I could see why. Went back for Saturday brunch, they were full and the brunch was fantastic. Will come here over and over again.

Wonderful Italian food in downtown Chicago. Spaghetti and meatballs were very good. Meatballs were the largest meatballs I think I've ever seen. Chicken Parmesan was very good too - huge portion! Cesar salad was one of the best I've had in a while. Great service. Nice atmosphere, but loud. I would definitely recommend and go back.

Managed to get a seat outside. Very nice atmosphere. Good Italian food. As is so often the case in the US they give you too much. All in all a good place to eat.

We ate here for dinner after having someone recommend it to us as the best Italian in Chicago. We were not disappointed. We all ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their dinner very much. They have gluten free options that was as delicious as everything else. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was really nice.

Amazing restaurant to sit outside and people watch. Food is awesome and you get great portion sizes. Ate here twice in four days. Crowded but not hard to get a table. A must for any visitor who loves Italian!

After dinner at Giordano's, right across the street was Rosebud, a great place for a drink, and piano bar. Great night overall!

I took my wife here for my Wedding Anniversary because she loves Italian dining. I booked this reservation through opentable and they rolled out the red carpet when we arrived. The waiter even assisted with my wife's peculiar white wine preferences. Some of the best Italian seafood dishes I've had in awhile.
