It was good. I'm just spoiled with my Italian relatives having cooked for me and this was good but it was not great for me as it may have been for some. The meatballs were at best average for my taste buds, the sauce was OK (a little flat for me) and the tiramisu was delicious however.

A very good place to eat, good wine, with good service. You never have to ask for more water or bread. They are eager to please.

We have 3 good Italian Restaurants in the Medford area. One chain restaurant and two independently owned and of the two Roarios is my favorite. The ambiance is so so but the food is excellent! My hubby's favorite dish is the Crispelle , a crepe type dish with your choice of sauce. The house is very accommodating and at his... More

Stopped in Medford during vacation. After some extravagant meals, I really wanted something basic like pizza. I looked up menus for a lot of local restaurants, and settled on Rosario's because of their wood fired pizza. I got the Rosario's special- sausage and pepperoni, with red onion, red pepper, and mushrooms. It was great! Nice sauce, good crust with a... More

Always made to feel welcome, food is very good. Just the right size portions. The owner is usually there and checks in with customers. Calzones are the best in the valley.

Rosarios is my favorite Italian in Medford. The food is delicious and authentic. I have never had a bad meal here. The service is always great as well. The Tiramisu was fantastic!

A little while back I started seeing commercials for Rosario's. I can't lie. They were on so much that I found them annoying. Oddly enough I found myself craving some Italian food tonight. I'll give you one guess which restaurant popped into my head. Yup. Rosario's. I guess their advertising worked. It is very easy to find. Just down the... More

Went to Rosario's again, been going for years, even before the current owners. When you have glass top tables and cloth napkins it says "a little upscale". When the glass top tables are not clean it says "looser". Food was just as good as it ever was but I lost my desire to eat on those dirty tables. Yuck. You... More

Description
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.
