The food was delish, but portion size was way too much! If you are not starving, share an entree with your date and enjoy!! Very nice!

Forget $5 burgers - that is a misnomer. The burgers may be $5 BUT you are required to also order a drink which is $3 for non- alcoholic !! Yes you heard right!- and to add insult to injury...ALL soft drinks are mixed from the soda fountain bar - even the iced tea is made from a mix and it is RANCID.

I was here recently - place was 75% EMPTY at 1:00 pm - a late lunchtime and yet the hostess refused to give us the bigger table that we wanted. That's optimism!! And SERIOUS ATTITUDE!
By the time we left around 2:30pm, there was only one new table seated! Obviously no one ever told the host that the customer comes first. Perhaps this is why the place is so empty?

The burger was good, but not the best. So BUYER BEWARE - the sign says $5 but the reality is $8 after you add the required softdrink and then the tax! I will not come back here.

very easy to find as part of our hotel, busy restaurant, which seems a good sign. Pizza very tasty and beer good & cold.

A group of us from around the country meet once a year for a fun weekend including museums, sightseeing, sports events, shopping and good restaurants. This year we went to Chicago, IL. Based on some locals we know we made a reservation for seven for the Rosebud Trattoria located at 445 N. Dearborn at the corner of N. Dearborn and W. Illinois in the trendy River North area of Chicago adjacent to the Hampton Inn.

We weren't disappointed. To the contrary, our expectations were met and exceeded. The menu is diverse and includes some basic and unique Italian dishes. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful with ordering. We ordered a few appetizers, salads and main dishes. Highly recommend one of their specialties, Mama's Meatballs which were really good even if you think you've already had every possible meat ball.

Since the servings are more than adequate we suggest you share a few dishes or, if ordering individually, just order an appetizer and main course. We never got to order desert.

So, if you are in the area. Give the Rosebud Trattoria a try. We don't think you'll be disappointed.

Service is great and the food is FANTASTIC. I highly recommend the classic Spag & Meatballs. Sauce is great and the meatballs are both HUGE and killer!
