Couldn't fault the service or the food (average and reasonably priced for local restaurant) until the end of the meal. Having eaten main course, wine, and a dessert I asked for a glass of water with ice. I was asked if I wanted still water and I replied that tap water was fine. I was told that I can only... More

As a regular customer I was very dismayed at the recent feedback, certainly makes you think what was being said behind your back. Sounds like you need to replace the staff or learn their language (Spanish/Portuguese ?) - how else will you know what is going on in your own restaurant !

We were with a 2 year old child, so it was clear we would need a child seat……..not from her, i had to get it myself. We... More

Noisy, over priced and sadly lacking in customer service. Waiters should understand that we are multi cultural city and many of us speak more than one language to hear people in another party referred to as ugly, fat and In homophobic terms is disappointing to say the least x would not recommend to anyone even an enemy

I went there last Friday number one far too many tables were crammed in and then the waiters were talking in Spanish about large people, ugly people and people that were gay. We were asked to move round as a member of our party had not turned up so that they could fit yet another table in. I have ever... More

I went with friends to this restaurant recently and can only say how very disappointed I was with a particular member of staff who seemed to go out of their way to be as unpleasant as they could be and they certainly do not like people who are of ample body. Food was very good but this member of staff... More

If you are gay or female and speak Spanish or Portugese then you can sit and enjoy the abusive comments from the waiters who think that you do not understand. Homophobic and sexist abuse does not appear on the menu, and is not really conducive to an enjoyable experience. In fact it is completely unacceptable

We are already dealing with the staff member(s) involved and are not for one second treating the matter lightly. I hope you understand that Rosso is our business (my wife and I) and we work extremely hard to ensure our... More

Rosso is our local Italian restaurant. It is also the place where I met my love, so it is special for several reasons. The staff greet us like old friends and shake your hand. It is always busy, so be sure to book. The food is very good. The pasta is excellent with lots of choices - the tagliatelle chilli... More

We have been a few times now to Rosso's and always have a great meal. Staff are friendly and the menu will have something that appeals to all. For a quick bite to eat.. highly recommend their pizzas. Or for a leisurely evening there are great meat, fish and pasta dishes. Wine is reasonably priced. Deserts are to die for!!... More

I have reviewed Rosso's a number of times and each time there has been a massive improvement. Rosso's is one of the best Italian/Mediterranean Restaurants around. The flavour of the food is fantastic and the owners are wonderful. This time there were three of us in the party. We had the mixed brochette to start, followed by Chicken Kiev with... More
