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.

Very authentic!

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....

The food here isn't bad. I think it is actually pretty good. But for the prices, I think it should be better. The food is very mildly spiced. The service is pretty good. In other words, nothing to get excited about. If you don't like spices, it is a good choice. If you like well seasoned food, you can do... More

Have been going to this restaurant since 1999 & recently was diagnosed with Gluten issues. Thank you Rosario's for having Gluten free Pizza, pasta, & sometimes raviolis. The vegetable raviolis I had the other night were delicious. Keep up the great food.

My husband and I just moved to Medford and visited Roasario's this past weekend. The food was excellent! This is the best Italian food I have ever experienced in all of our travels. The portions were generous and the prices were very reasonable. I would recommend the Rosario experience to anyone.

My husband and I enjoyed the friendly and good service Amber gave us. We were so happy to find a place that had authentic Italian and delicious food. From the start we received good and plentiful toasted garlic french bread and then good sized portions of our main dish. The salad was fresh and with homemade Italian dressing. We ordered... More

Rosario's lasagne is the best around. With ample portions and flavorful sauce, we have never been disappointed by our meal.
