Gorgeous food

Came here back in December for my birthday meal. No complaints about the food whatsoever. Very tasty food and lovely cocktails too! Busy restaurant with a great atmosphere and particularly nice at Xmas time! Lots of happy diners, including us. Would go back any time!

Decided to try Rosso for lunch today after having heard on numerous occasions that it is very good we arrived half an hour earlier than booked which wasn't a problem with the friendly staff who gave us the option to go straight to the table or have a drink at the bar. I chose the Sunday lunch option 3 courses... More

Really nice restaurant. The building itself is great inside and very up to date and stylish. The food was fantastic, the Prawn started was one of the best I have had and the the Crab pasta was also delicious. It is fairly pricey but it is well worth the price. A little tip - make you sure you ask for... More

Had a delicious meal last night at Rosso's. Polite and attentive staff, warm atmosphere. I had the beef fillet served on a hot stone that was partially cooked so you could finish it off to your liking, a novelty and interesting twist on a classic. The steak was perfection! Would recommend x

Walk in the restaurant and the quality hits you. Have a cocktail at the lounge bar. Ambiance is lively and classy without being stuffy or too exclusive. Then eat! 3 course Sunday lunch for £20 per head. All dishes are quality and a good size, + Bottle of very nice wine for a tiny £9.99. Service was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable;... More

Four of us had lunch in Rosso today. We had not pre-booked, but were welcomed, our coats taken, and we were shown to a very nice round table in a corner. The building - an old bank - was very atmospheric, and the noise level very acceptable for an Italian restaurant. We chose to eat off the £14.95 two course... More

Often go to Rosso for drinks but decided to have an impromptu lunch there. Wasn't disappointed. The service was exceptional and the food was gorgeous. Will definitely be eating here again.
