There are so many good Iti places to visit on Taylor Street. This place is one of the better ones. My neighbor, Hector, took me there. He'd been going for years. Small, cute place but with a banquet room upstairs. Our waitress was delightful. Hector...More

With the demise of the original Dave's Italian Kitchen, we've become regulars. And that should say it all. Wonderful food. Great, intimate, but not cloying space. The staff appropriately personable, but not in your face. The owner truly caring. Our favs: broccoli salad, stuffed artichoke,...More

My friends and I wanted to meet somewhere in Little Italy where none of us had eaten before, so this was what we chose. We were not disappointed. The service was great--our server was attentive but was not intrusive. We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere.

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!
