RoSal's is a terrific good value Italian restaurant. The food is marvelous and very large portions. The location is the famous Taylor Street Italian neighborhood of Chicago. The décor is pleasant and it is popular. I highly recommend RoSal's.

28 years ago, on May 1st, 1990, my family took a leap of faith and opened the doors to a true mom & pop, family-owned Italian restaurant. With pots and pans from home, along with silverware, plates, and bowls, RoSal’s was in business. What followed was a journey we could never have expected; an adventure of food, family, friends, laughter, memories and a whole lot of love! It is a bittersweet moment, a time for us to say goodbye; May 13th, 2018 will be our last day serving. We would love for you to take the time to stop in, say goodbye, share a memory and make a toast to 28 great years of friendship!
