About Rosati's Pizza

With five generations of experience serving pizza, we know our way around the kitchen at Rosati's Pizza. Pizza brings people together and we are all about that aspect of the business, the people.

Values & History

Sam's father began the family's rich tradition of serving delicious Italian food to customers in his New York restaurant back in the late 1890s. In 1970, Rick Rosati, great-grandson of Fred Sr., continued the family tradition and opened his own Rosati's Pizza in Arlington Heights, Illinois. By 1978, a total of ten individual Rosati family members owned Rosati's Pizza locations.

In 1979 the family decided to expand the business and began franchising the Rosati's Pizza concept. In 1996 Sam Rosati, great-great-grandson of Fred Sr. opened his first Rosati's Pizza location in Belvidere, Illinois marking the fifth generation of Rosati family members serving delicious Italian food. Other locations soon followed and Rosati's Pizza was on the map.
