Family owned and operated since 1964
In 1895, an Italian immigrant from the region of Naples, Italy, Ferdinand Rosati opened a fine-dining Italian restaurant on Coney Island. In 1906, he moved to Chicago and started yet another Italian restaurant on Chicago’s famous Taylor Street. Since the restaurant gained immense success, expansion was the next direction. A hotel, saloon, and a small importing and exporting business of Italian foods were added to the restaurant. Back then, pizza was strictly old-world Italian fare, simply a tomato sauce served on crisp bread that Ferdinand often put on the table as a special offering to his customers and boy did the people love it! In 1964 Ferdinand’s son, Saverio Rosati and his sons; Dick, Ron and Al Rosati, opened the first Rosati’s Pizza in an Illinois suburb. Rosati’s Pizza has come a long way since it’s early days.
