Rose Restaurant – the House that Pizza Built!
Edda Caputo opened a 15-seat pizzeria in Springfield using recipes
from her native Naples, Italy. Customers loved
her fresh, authentic cuisine so much that the restaurant expanded
not once, but four
times! In response to customer demands full dinners and full
beverage service were added. Today, Red Rose Restaurant is a
Springfield landmark that can accommodate more than 400 diners.
Rose is known for pizza! We still make our pizza the same way as we
did in 1963, although we make a lot more of it. We make our own
dough from scratch in 200 pound batches four or more times a day.
Our “house recipe” pizza is topped pepperoni, mixed red and green
sweet peppers and mozzarella cheese, lots of mozzarella cheese. Each
week we use a ton or more of mozzarella. We offer many other
toppings for our pizzas – the full list is included in our menu. Since 1987 our pizza has
been voted “Best in the Valley” times.
offer a full line of freshly made salads, sandwiches, and Neapolitan
entrees, all prepared using Caputo family recipes. All items can be
enjoyed in our dining room, served to your guests in our banquet
room, or ordered for take out. To see the complete list of our
delicious items, visit our menu page.
addition to the accolades for pizza, the quality of our food has been
recognized many times.
Seeing is Believing
Italy, everyone knows what goes on in the kitchen. Many families
entertain friends in the kitchen. While we can’t allow eating in
our kitchen, we’re so proud of the professionalism and skill of our
staff that we built our restaurant with observation windows that
allow our guests to watch as we prepare their food!
may be believing, but tasting is oh so much more satisfying! We
invite you to visit us at 1060 Main Street, Springfield. For
