Every time we go here, it always amazes me how polite and charming the staff are, for a restaurant owned by celebrities. It isn't at all pretentious, and the food is sublime. We are going for Christ,as - yes, it's that good!

My wife and I are fairly new to Manchester and stopped in here a few weeks ago for drinks before meeting some others at another nearby restaurant. This weekend, we came back here for dinner and it was terrific. There was a very smooth Saxaphone combo playing in the lounge. The wait staff were happy and attentive and the food... More

We dined here for lunch for my sisters 40th birthday. We waited for 15 minutes for someone to come and take our initial drink order. In the end i had to get our waiters attention and ask them to take a drink order. The place wasn't overly and there was an abundance of staff on shift. Food was ordered and... More

I was given a gift card for Rosso for my birthday so decided to give it a go. The building is nice, though I do think they have gone a little over board with the fairy lights! Had the meatballs for the starter which were good, pasta for the main which was over priced for what it was. Dessert was... More

Ate here at 5 o'clock on a Sunday night as 6 o'clock wasn't free- good job we did as we needed to be at the arena for 8.00! We chased our reservation from the bar and eventually went hunting for someone to take us to our table we thought it was fair enough as we amused ourselves at the bar... More

I cannot fault Rosso, I was a little sceptical given the reviews on trip advisor, however, the welcome was warm and friendly, the staff so efficient and professional, the restaurant looks beautiful all lit up and most importantly, the food was amazing. I was looking for somewhere different from Gaucho, San Carlos, Don Marco, Browns and this certainly fit the... More

I have to say I had previously dismissed this restaurant as I wasn't interested in going to a 'celebrity' hangout. How wrong was I! Beautiful decor inside with professional and courteous staff and with the added bonus of a lounge type singer adding to the lovely ambience of the restaurant. The dishes were not over priced and the size of... More

We visited Rosso on a Saturday evening, the building, surroundings, decor and the food was spot on. We arrived at 5pm, at 19:00 we were asked to leave so that they could use the table again for another booking. The food was lovely, good selection and it was cooked just right. The staff were not very tentative, they were very... More
