Rosati's varies greatly by location. I think they're franchised. The one in Carol Stream was one of my go-to's years ago, but the one by me now is awful. I'd rather have Pizza Hut.


I believe sometime in the early to mid 90s, a big chunk of the family (cousins/nieces/nephews) branched out using their Rosati name for free. They were looking forward more to making money instead of caring about quality. There are also a number of owners (non-family members) who spend their money on the name and unfortunately don't know and/or care about quality or customer service. This is pretty evident in AZ. Fortunately, there are a number of awesome Rosati stores in the valley run by Scott, who moved from Schaumburg in '85 (worked at a Rosati's there for years) and opened up the first Rosati's in AZ (Tempe).

I love their pizza. They don't skimp on cheese, sauce, and most importantly, ingredients. It sucks when someone tries Rosati's for the first time and end up at a bad one. Most write it off and never try another place thinking Rosati's is Rosati's is Rosati's.

Didn't another Scot(t) open a Rosati's in Arizona?

My wife's family was a big fan of Rosatti's as I think they were one of the few places that would deliver to their house in the early 80's. I thought it was the one on Randall rd but that was a heck of a hail to their house. Who knows. Looks like they are building one in Pekin, il. I'm sure it will be highest quality.

We had a good Rosati's by us for a while. Good thin crust.

Ownership changed and then it sucked.

pizza_Place: I miss Carmen's
One day last summer, I'm driving around some of the industrial areas of Houston for a trucking-related project work, and I get to one of the industrial parks along the waterway where I have to do a drive around and get some basic information about the roads. Right in front of the industrial park was a Rosati's. The funniest thing was that it was only open until 5pm and only open Monday-Friday. I guess their stock in trade was truck drivers dropping off containers who knew Chicago and recognized the name.

That place is right along Buffalo Bayou, so I suspect it got completely flooded to the roof.

It was probably one of the shitty Rosatis.
