- $17 for One 18” and 12” thin crust cheese pizza ($28 value)
Rosati’s Pizza's history dates back to the early 1900s, when recent Italian immigrant, Ferdinand Rosati, moved from New York to Chicago with the dream of opening a restaurant. His first attempt was modest—with Ferdinand simultaneously fulfilling the duties of chef, server, dishwasher, and host—but quickly gained popularity for its crispy-thin-crust pizzas, originally served as complimentary appetizers. Encouraged by the public's response to the pies, Ferdinand and his son, Sam, decided to focus their efforts on opening a true pizzeria.
Today, at Rosati's Pizza locations across the country, plumes of steam swirl above piping-hot pies concocted from handmade sauce and dough. A smattering of toppings pair up with five crust options—crispy thin, double dough, Chicago-style, pan, and superstuffed—and cower from diners inside hand-rolled calzones. Homemade lasagna and fettuccine alfredo battle for the top pasta spot, and fried chicken, baby back ribs, and fried-shrimp dinners work together to distract diners from hard-to-resist buffalo wings.
