Rosati's is committed to providing customers with signature Chicago pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches that offer high quality, value and flavor. We've stayed true to our roots, continuing to use fresh ingredients and authentic Italian family recipes. Everything we do is history in the making.

1895
Ferdinand Rosati, an Italian immigrant from the region of Naples, Italy, opened a fine-dining Italian restaurant on Coney Island.

1906
Ferdinand moved to Chicago and started another Italian restaurant on Chicago's famous Taylor Street. Immense success led to expansion – a hotel, saloon, and small importing and exporting business of Italian foods were added to the restaurant.

Back then, pizza was strictly old-world Italian fare. It was simply a tomato sauce served on crisp bread that Ferdinand would put on the table as a special offering to his customers – and boy did the people love it!

1927
Ferdinand's son, Saverio Rosati, opened another restaurant on Pulaski and Madison in Chicago, right next to the Marbro Theater. Soon after, the restaurant became a favorite watering hole for the old Chicago society and Windy City politicians.

Contrary to popular belief, notorious gangster Al Capone and his entourage, could be spotted sharing a heaping dish of pasta with his so-called "nemesis” Eliot Ness.

1964
When Saverio retired, his sons (Dick. Ron and Al Rosati) moved to the suburbs with a new and timely concept. Pizza was now a popular trend they opened the first Rosati's
