A Chicago institution since 1992, Rose Angeli's is a quaint establishment tucked away within a cute neighborhood in Lincoln Park. It's actually a house, which makes it that much more endearing, since as you stroll the tree-lined streets, you don't even realize that you are passing by one of the premier Italian restaurants in the city of Chicago. For starters, you can relax in the front foyer bar and have a glass of wine before you are seated. Next, you will be guided to either a cozy inside table, or if you prefer, an outside spot replete with trellises of crawling ivy and romantic lighting. And finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the spectacular cuisine and expertly-crafted wine list at your immediate disposal upon being seated. Pictured above you see one of their seasonal desserts, a pumpkin cheesecake designed to satisfy any sugar lovers' dream. To satisfy your culinary cravings, find your way to 1314 West Wrightwood Avenue in Chicago. 773-296-0081.
