This is the second time our daughter has chosen this restaurant for her birthday celebration. I had forgotten how narrow Chicago side streets are and how parking is difficult around this location. We were lucky and found a space almost in front of the restaurant but we were there for an early (4:30PM) Sunday dinner reservation. After a slight wait,... More

This place is deceiving from the outside, what appears to be a tiny little hole in the wall Italian restaurant, turns out to be a fantastic find in Chicago. We went there with our family over the Thanksgiving holiday (11 of us) for dinner. And, to a person, everyone had nothing but wonderful praises to heep on Rose Angelis and... More

Gorgeous food+ lovely atmosphere+ ok prices= great time! We had a great time here. I have passed this place many times and thought it looked ordinary but once inside the food and atmosphere were definitely not ordinary. It has become one of our favorites!

We were looking for an Italian restaurant in LIncoln Park and just did a search. We pulled up to this place in the middle of all these residental buildings and thought immediately that it was a cool place. We had made a reservation on line and they seated us immediately. The appetizer was very good. We had the specials for... More

In visiting family, this restaurant was recommended and was absolutely worth the trip. Although I have not found Italian food quite as good as the North East, this restaurant was an excellent choice. There were 11 in our party and the staff were prompt and accommodating. The serving portions were exceptional and took home the remainder of my meal for... More

I lived in this neighborhood in the late 90s, so when Rose Angelis was suggested for a friend's birthday dinner, I was excited to revisit an old neighborhood favorite. I was extremely disappointed! We ordered the Gnocchi con Prosciutto e Albiococca Seccagno and the sauce was so thick and salty. My friend sent back her Calamari alla Griglia because the... More

Mussels were over cooked. Chicken Florentine was deep fried. Pizza special was burned and not tasty. It takes a lot ffor my brother to not clean his plate, but he could barely eat the pizza. Salad was mediocre at best. Waitress was nice. Would not eat here again

We traveled to this restaurant by a recommendation from a friend. We were driving from the Shedd Aquarium, so we could have gone to many other places. It was outstanding. The entrees were more than generous size servings. There were 5 in our party and all of us took home doggy bags.....even the appetizers were huge. Our waiter was fun... More

I agree with a previous reviewer that you hate to tell other people and ruin this gem. I swear by TripAdvisor and my fellow reviewers were not wrong with this place. Dropped my in-laws off at the Apollo to see Million Dollar Quartet and in a few short minutes of walking we arrived at Rose Angelis. We were greated by... More
