The first Rosati’s Authentic Chicago Pizzeria was opened in Mt. Prospect, IL in 1964, serving pizza based on a family recipe that dates back to the turn of the century. 

Today, Rosati's Pizza still uses the original family recipe and is the second-largest local restaurant chain in the Chicagoland area. Rosati’s is approaching 200 locations throughout the United States. 

Rosati’s Pizza provides signature thin-crust, double dough and Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, calzones, salads, entrees, desserts, alcoholic beverages and catering.
