What makes this place a standout is the personality of the staff and the place. Rossi's has been around forever, and the place does a great job making you feel like you can kick back when many of the other restaurants/bars in downtown Chicago don't. Obviously, its not the place you'd want to go to if you're out with a date, but it is a great little nook with character and history, and a great place to toss back a beer while checking out city lights.
Pros: Personality, personality, kicked back atmosphere
Cons: all the waaay downtown for us andersonvillers ;)
