Rosario’s Italian Restaurant has been in the Rogue Valley since 1975. It was originally started as a small Italian deli in this very same location by the Bonfiglio family. It is considered one of the oldest Italian Restaurants in Southern Oregon. Rosario's features a variety of dishes maintaining the closest version of the ancient genuine Italian culinary traditions. The food of Italy is as remarkably varied as the many different regions of the country, shaped and influenced as they are by geography, climate and history. The Pesto and Carbonara pasta dishes are from the Northern regions, you can travel to the Coastal regions with our seafood dishes. The Lazio region appears in our Alfredo (Pasta alla Crema o Panna) dishes, so popular and sooo good! The Southern region is emulated by our rich aromatic red sauces. Or you can try a Pizza from our wood-fired oven.
Living and shopping in Southern Oregon we authoritatively maintain flavors, traditions and authentic Italian eating habits making the most of our local markets.

Excellent Tortellini

We ordered a catered lunch that came with cheese tortellini and a lemon chicken and it was fantastic. The tortellini was creamy and rich , while the lemon chicken was the perfect compliment. They delivered on time and everything was just as ordered. Very pleased!

Rosario's has an affordable lunch menu, I tried the ravioli. My fellow diners chose other pasta options from the same menu. Their servings were considerably more generous than their ravioli plate. It was pretty good, I could have done with a bit more. The also have an open-fire oven to bake pizzas in -- I may want to try that... More

While in Medford for business I met up with some family members who were passing through, We decided to try Rosario's for dinner. It was a Friday night but around 7 or so, and we were seated right away. The garlic bread was yummy, the salads included black olives and red peppers (nice addition to just tomatoes elsewhere). I had... More

Authentic Italian fare in a nice atmosphere with attentive waitresses. As a spaghetti Iover I give them a high grade. Their parking needs some attention, however.

Small Italian place fairly close to downtown Medford OR. Very good food at good prices. I had the "baked mostaccioli" and the wife had to ravioli. The "mostaccioli" was great, and a large portion. The ravioli was good, but she says she has had better. Their calzones looked fabulous, as I observed a the surrounding tables. The salads looked and... More

We eat at Rosario's on a regular basis. They also catered our wedding a few years back and were very easy to work with! We are now gluten free and thought we would have to give up pastas but Rosario's has gluten free options that are wonderful!!!

I loved the bread and salad and the ravioli with Basil cream sauce was DELICIOUS. My husband really liked the meatball sandwich.

Service was good but the food was really bland. The complimentary bread needs to be changed for it did not make for a good first impression. No balsamic and olive oil on the table at an Italian restaurant is almost unforgivable. We had the veal at $17.99 which is a very good value. Family atmosphere keeps things casual and comfortable....
