Papa Xaverio Rosati was born in Naples, Italy in 1897 and came to America in 1905. Our fondest memories as children centered around Sundays at Papa Saverio's house. Sunday was always Papa's day to cook a traditional Italian meal for the whole family.
For two generations, we cooked with Papa and learned every recipe and cooking secret he had up his sleeve. As we grew older and started our own families we had more and more requests from friends and neighbors for Papa's traditional Italian style cooking. Finally in 1998, Don & Michelle Fortin opened their first Papa Saverio's in Lake in the Hills, IL. It was so well received that we went on to open more stores.
We are excited to be opening a full service restaurant in Crystal Lake, providing Dine-In, Carry Out, and Catering Services. We are proud to continue offering not only our famous pizza selections, but also our other family favorites including calzones, pasta, beef, and chicken. Stop in and see us to find the pizza you'll fall in love with.
