In 1927, Ferdinand Rosati's son Sam opened the first Rosati's restaurant in Chicago. When a streetcar ride cost a nickel, stockyards covered the south side, and the city's tallest building was twenty stories high, Rosati's was quickly becoming the place for authentic Italian cuisine.
When Sam retired, his sons moved to the suburbs with a new and timely idea. The year was 1959 and pizza was catching on. Today the stockyards and street cars are gone. Sears Tower and Big John rise over 100 stories. And Rosati's continues to deliver Italian Cuisine that's fresh, hot and delicious.
Now we have over 145 Rosati's restaurants in 11 states and growing. We still use original Rosati's family recipes. We slow roast our beef for that famous Chicago taste. Our pizza dough, sauces, lasagna, and meatballs are all made from scratch daily. When it comes to pizza, we use our secret blend of three cheeses and pile on the fresh ingredients as if we were cooking it for our own family. We even use an authentic baker's oven. It may take a little longer than "assembly line" pizzas, but it creates a taste so delicious to your table you'll find it's well worth the wait. Opportunites
