Never have I been greeted so warmly. Linda & Joe make you feel like one of the family. Terrific family food made with love and care in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood near UIC. A wonderful treasure--I will remember the experience, the food and the people....More

This place is adorable. And the food - OMG - absolutely delicious. Our service was honestly pretty slow and for reasons we couldn't figure out (not a lot of people, felt like we were forgotten). But the food was SO worth the wait. Can't wait...More

First of all, I'm not a fan of most white sauces Second of all, I cannot go to RoSal's and *not* get the Fried Ravioli. I was kind of in a rush on Saturday and that's primarily why I picked RoSal's over Francesca's. The staff...More

RoSal's is absolutely delicious from the appetizers to entrees. The sausage and peppers are a must and the zuppa de mare is my favorite. I have had the veal dishes, chicken dishes and many pastas. There is not one meal that dies not surpass expectations....More

RoSals is my go to place in "Little Italy". The atmosphere is almost as great as the food! The "fried ravioli" is a must!

Celebrating 27 years in the neighborhood! RoSal's is about wonderful Sicilian food served in abundant portions. About remembering the sounds, aroma & flavors of the "old neighborhood". About a way of life for people who really appreciate their food & have come to expect great varieties of pasta, fish, cheese, meat and breads. The same variety and quality that make a journey through Italy & through RoSal's Italian Kitchen so rewarding. Please join our family for dinner or book a private party. We look forward to meeting you!
