When we was seated the waiters took ages to take our order. The pasta was horrible however, the chicken pieces in the pasta was nice.... More

Have yet to receive poor service, poor food... The food was tasty, well sized and we all enjoyed our meal. We enjoyed some champers, cocktails all well priced and cannot wait to return again!

Lunch on a Saturday in central Manchester? We were on our way to Jamies Italian and diverted by an A-board suggesting a two-course lunch at £15 plus wine at £10. Difficult to resist, as the place looked quite posh... The interior is a Victorian bank built with considerable style and opulence in a light Italianate faux marble style with a... More

I was looking forward to a meal at this restaurant which my husband recommended after eating there with business clients. The building is beautiful and was actually our bank many years ago! We booked a table for 5pm and, having been informed that we had the table for two hours, were confident that we would be out in time for... More

WOW! A trip to Manchester has got to include a visit to Rosso. The ambience is great, the service is faultless and the food and cocktails are fabulous. Without a doubt, the best carbonara ever tasted - so good that we all ordered it as a starter.... again! Rosso, keep doing what you're doing and sprinkling that magic dust. See... More

Came here Saturday 17th January with 3 friends for the set lunch menu for a birthday celebration. Straight to table and the ladies at the front were lovely. Ordered from the lunch menu which was 14.95 for 2 courses (pretty good!) I had the risotto with cold water prawns to start which was absolutely delicious I could've eaten lots more... More

Loved it here, visited with my boyfriend at Christmas time. Extensive, great Italian menu at reasonable prices. Rich food (lasagna for me!), big portions and most importantly, fantastic cocktails! Would recommend!
