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

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
