This is the fourth time I have visited Rosso’s, this time I took my husband. Another fabulous lunch was served. I had the chicken with goats cheese and roasted tomato and my husband had a chicken parmigianna type dish. We both ordered a portion of fries to go with our meals. Service was first class as always and I cannot... More

Overtime unfortunately, I have developed quite a strong aversion to garlic and from past experiences Italian dishes contains a lot of the stuff. About ten of us dined at Rosso's at the weekend and for the first time ever at an Italian restaurant, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. We arrived slightly earlier than our reservation so we had a drink... More

Managed to get a reservation on the Sunday of bank holiday weekend for 7pm. A little early but we didn't want the other option of 10pm! Arrived 15 mins early and they said we could go straight through, we said we'd like a drink at the bar first and headed over to have an aperol spritz (one of the best... More

I was a little skeptical as you could expect...however, Rosso did indeed deliver and we had a fab evening with them. There were a few hiccups with service, overall though I was impressed. The staff were efficient and entertaining, really appreciated the humour, kudos to our Sommelier for the evening. Food was hot and well cooked, great chunky chips apparently.... More

Called in for an afternoon cocktail with the girls celebrating a 40th birthday. Lovely ambience and we decided on a cocktail as a treat.. It was stated by the batman that he made the best cocktails in manchester.. He was not lying.. Immense! I also didn't think it was over priced either. Would definitely go back

Have visited Rosso a dozen times in the last 6 - 9 months with clients and have found it to be very hit and miss. What is consistent is that the venue is fantastic, great decor, music always good and Christmas was particularly great Another consistent is the belligerent and rude attitude of the male management there, I suspect they...

Booked on line after seeing reviews I was expecting something great. Greeted professionally at the door. Explained we were 20 minutes early, but were told our table was ready and we could be seated. The restaurant was quite with plenty of staff milling about, the building is beautiful and we'll decorated. We sat down and sat and sat and sat.... More

My wife and I visited Rosso again for Lunch and were not disappointed by the food and the service. You can have a two course lunch for £14.95 and a bottle of house wine for £7.95, a very good deal. Our choice was a mixed salad starter and Sea Bass in batter on a pea purée for our main course... More

Heard about this restaurant online and that the meat was Halal. I have been searching for the best halal steak across many UK restaurants and tried many, to date Rosso's steak is one of the best. Food very good with decent portions especially the children's meals which were very generous. Atmosphere was welcoming and not intimidating considering high profile city... More
