Excellent food, attentive service and lovely surroundings

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

Really enjoyed my visit to Rossos, the staff were very attentive the food for the price was stunning. I expected the food to cost a lot more than it did and when it came it was just superb. The manager Sasha made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend a meal here.

I loved my first visit to Rosso, everything feels grand and luxurious and the service is excellent. We had a salad with smoked cheese - something I hadn't come across on other menus and it was delicious. Will definitely be back!

Called in for a cocktail on a Saturday afternoon, heard a lot about Rosso but was a little underwhelmed. Nice ceiling and decor but lacking atmosphere but hey, maybe it was the time of day. Can't comment on the food but for service, atmosphere and buzz in our opinion there is quite a few establishments in the city centre worth... More
