Went here on a recommendation from local acquaintances. It is a very small establishment. Once you step in, you immediately feel the warmth of a very personal and informal welcome. This is the sort of restaurant where families come for their regular night out and...More

Chose this place due to TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. All food is homemade and scrumptious. Waitress/hostess said portions weren't huge but don't believe her. She also said they'd be glad to modify any dish however we'd like. Starting with the bread, almost everything was...More

Was in Chicago for the weekend (we're from Toronto) and tried RoSal's for the first time. From the moment we walked in the door and were greeted and seated the service was outstanding. The food was spectacular (the portions are very ample, come hungry!). Looking...More

Wonderful small restaurant that makes dining a pleasure. This isn't fast food. In fact, it's kind of slow. This is a restaurant for times when you have time to enjoy your dining partners and great food. Four of us had four different items and we...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

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!
