We visited on a Sunday so so we picked from the Sunday menu. I must say that we actually won this meal via a website. I had received an email from Rosso with the prize details and booked a Sunday to go. Very good email exchanges and I was away most of March so difficult getting a day, however they... More

Rosso continues to impress us more with each visit. On our recent evening there we were instantly recognised as we entered the restaurant and shown straight to our favourite table, without mentioning our names. A lovely warm and personable welcome! We both had fillet steaks and you can tell the high quality cut they are, cooked to absolute perfection and... More

The staff seem too busy entertaining each other than serving customers. Quality of food definitely does not match its price tag. Just another classy looking place

The set menu is limited but fabulous value. I had the minestrone followed by the pork both of which were delicious. Side dishes as are large - we had 3 amongst 5 of us and theyre was too much.

We went to Rosso for a friends 30th birthday. Upon arriving we were sat down swiftly and our waitress introduced herself. The atmosphere is good and decor lovely. Our food arrived swiftly and is probably the best meal I have had at a restaurant. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Drink service was slow and we found ourselves looking... More

We went to Rosso on the evening of the 28th Feb. In fairness we were clearly told that our table would be from 5pm - 7pm and we understood that. Upon arrival we were told our table wasn't ready and to go into the bar area. At this point I gave my card as assurance for payment of our drinks... More
