Our Story

 

The story of Rosie’s Italian Grille stems from a humble place – our beloved mother Rosie Barone’s kitchen. To some, what would seem to be an ordinary kitchen was where Rosie’s famous recipes were perfected and brought to life. With a pinch of this and a dash of that, Rosie’s recipes created a family culture surrounded around authentic Italian cuisine.  

 

Our Story

It Started with a Deli.

Flashback to 1982, brothers Phillip, John, and Mike opened a humble deli, with an adjoining arcade, in a building on Sylvania Avenue. The restaurant quickly became a Toledo staple and grew in popularity. In the blink of an eye, the deli closed to focus on bigger and better adventures and five Rosie’s pizzerias opened in its place. The brothers’ goals were simple: to provide Toledoians with authentic Italian cuisine that paid homage to their dear mother’s recipes.

Our Story

Rosie’s Italian Grille Was Born.

In 2004, the brothers’ closed the last of the pizzerias to rebuild the current location, on the corner of Nebraska and McCord, into the beautiful, fine-dining experience that it is today. Voila, our beloved Rosie’s Italian Grille was born. Today our traditional Italian recipes are fused with Executive Chef Eric Kish’s flair for flavor and creativity. Our menu boasts everything from pizza, fresh fish from Key West, Chicago Stockyard steaks, New Zealand lamb chops and even a dessert menu filled with blissful and delicious creations that are made in-house. We invite you to take part in the experience that is Rosie’s Italian Grille.

Just about all of my family loves Rosie’s.

In today’s world of “cut back” on quality and quantity, I haven’t seen a change in either. Rosie’s always deliver great food along with great service.”
