On February 10th, 1987, Aldo’s Italian Restaurant opened its doors. Now known as Sam & Rosco’s, the restaurant has been serving Douglas County residents with fine dining for 25 years.
After opening, Aldo’s expanded to 5 restaurants around the Atlanta area. In 1996, Sam and Rosco sold the chain and decided to focus solely on their Douglasville location with the goal of making it Douglasville’s premier fine dining establishment. It was at that point that the restaurant became known as Sam & Rosco’s.
The success of Sam & Rosco’s is due to the fact that they have set themselves apart, and created a niche by becoming known as Douglasville’s “fanciest” restaurant. When you enter the doors, you immediately notice the lush interior which includes candlelit tables, expensive chandeliers, soft symphonic music, beautiful paintings, and other amenities that you just don’t see in other restaurants. The staff is attired in uniforms that befit a fine restaurant. The service is top notch. And the food is unique, and presented in an artful fashion. All of these features combine to give the diner a very relaxed experience, and the impression that they are in an expensive restaurant in a major city. The menu is diverse and unique, so that when you go, you know that you can try something that you have never had before. There is a full bar in the restaurant and an extensive selection of wines to choose from.
Sam & Rosco’s has won many awards for their food, service and presentation. They also have full service catering capability. In 2007, they opened a second, related business in Douglasville, called The Centre at Arbor Connection. The new business is located almost across the street from Sam & Rosco’s and is an event venue for weddings and special events.
The restaurant is also a good place for a business meeting or to impress a date or an important client. It is a popular site for holiday dinners. There are two private rooms that are available for special functions.
Sam & Rosco’s has been active in the community as a long-time member of the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. They have been supportive of local schools and non-profit organizations.
The location is convenient to all of Douglas County. The restaurant is located at 7450 Douglas Boulevard, a little past Home Depot on the other side of the street.
