The problem with venues like Rosso is simple. All this paparazzi nonsense overshadows what the inept, numbskull managent are there for. To run a top restaurant. IT ISNT. It's a venue. Dinner with friends last night and frankly a pretty poor experience. This is the third visit in 12 months and this restaurant doesn't learn its lessons or step up.... More

Pleasantly surprised - nice restaurant, good service, good food no complaints, We ate on a Sunday and chose the set menu £20.00 per adult person for 3 courses. Not much choice but it suited us. Presentation of food was good, tasted good - dessert was lovely. Nicely decorated restuarant and table set nicely - would go again. Total bill £75.00... More

Rosso has quite the reputation, which is understandable as there's often paparazzi parked outside and the building itself is beautiful, unfortunately it doesn't measure up to a lot of other Manchester restaurants. The city has a great range of brilliant restaurants, so Rosso has tough competition. The staff have an air about them which doesn't make you feel particularly comfortable,... More

The first time I visited Rosso was Christmas 2013 and we ate the Christmas Lunch menu, which was FANTASTIC! At the time I went for the Tacchino for the main, which was pan fried turkey breast with a ballotine of turkey leg stuffed with roast sage onion and apricot stuffing, served with mash and pigs in blankets. It perfect! I... More

We came here last year and really enjoyed it, so came back again for birthday celebrations. Being a week night it was not so busy, however, we had a lovely time. The staff we welcoming, helpful and friendly and the food was lovely. I had a pasta dish and the potion size was great, a little to large for me.... More

A group of us went out early Saturday evening for a birthday meal. The atmosphere was excellent and the food was great - varied and well cooked. Unfortunately the staff were not great. One member of staff made one of our group feel distinctly unwelcome and would not let it go even when he had had the whole situation explained... More

A party of 7 ladies enjoying a special birthday celebration and 21 years of friendship experiencing restaurants throughout the world were sadly deflated after eating at Rossos. One of our party has severe food allergies and, as we also do, we rang the restaurant prior to booking to ask if it would be OK if she brought her own food... More
