I've been eating here for over 20 years, and the quality of the food is the same---outstanding! EVERY meal I've had is consistently outstanding! Every dish is OUTSTANDING, I usually get the bruschetta (beyond tasty with always sweet tomatoes and a brush of pesto), the specialty pizza (crispy crust with always a creative combo of toppings), Gorgonzola tortellini with grapes...

Fantastic in every area. Not sure I've had a better Italian meal elsewhere. The food was top notch. Great wine recommendation. And our server was great.

Rose Angelis is a quaint Italian restaurant tucked away in a quiet Chicago neighborhood. We have visited this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed the food. The restaurant features a Wed night special for 2 for $59.00 which includes a shared appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees including the specials, and a shared dessert. We went with friends and shared...

Brought our family here including two children. Sat on the back patio that had lights strung across above and candles lit. Very nice considering it wasn't even dark outside - but that kind of stuff just adds atmosphere so I appreciated it. They have a kids menu with pasta, pizza, fruit, and veggies. Kids loved the bread and oil to... More

Sometimes a day in Chicago just continues on a good roll. Finale Rose Angelis! We started with a shared grilled calamari appetizer that had exceptional flavor with tangy spice that was not over seasoned. It included a mound of wilted spinach and was wonderful. Second...and a drum roll please for this memorable plate! The special Insalada del Giorno, it was... More

I figured out a few years back that I having lived a total of 6 months in Italy over the past 4 decades and having grown up with Italian immigrant families I have eaten a lot of Italian food - home cooked and restaurant. The main thing Rose Angeli's (RA) had going for it was the portion size. I understand... More

I've been going to Rose Anglis for years and I've never been disappointed. It has the best Italian food in Chicago, and that's saying a lot in this city. The wait staff are always friendly and knowledgable. It's a great place for friends and family and also great for a romantic date. The small rooms and outdoor seating really give... More

Step back in time when family run restaurants were in neighborhoods, the menu was original, and you were first brought there by a friend. Can't be in a rush though, everything is made to order. Just sit back, have a bottle of wine and enjoy the company & service. By the way, the desserts are as large as the meals.

Food was absolutely delicious. Parking was pretty impossible to find, and they do not offer any valet parking. We went on a Sunday and it was surprisingly very busy. It was a bit loud in the main area. The service was definitely slow. The waiter took two tables' orders near us before bringing us our first drink. However, the quality,... More
