11 Rosati’s Pizza
Normally you may not think that a Wisconsin chain restaurant is worthy of a mention on the list of the best restaurants in the Wisconsin Dells but I assure you that Rosatti’s is always on my itinerary for the Dells.
I have loved Rosati’s pizza for as long as I can remember and while there are many different locations across the country there are none near my home. So I always hit them up when in an area that is lucky enough to have them. My husband and his high school friends used to love their Joliet, Illinois location and when I moved to the area it was my go-to lunch spot.
We are always on the lookout for the next grand opening near us. Until that happens, I will hit them up during the summer season when we hit the Dells for a trip, it’s worth the drive, and they are so much more than just pizza.
