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!

We visited Rosso back in October as a group on a hen weekend. The bar and restaurant is obviously very popular being owned by Mr Ferdinand and celeb hot spot, with pictures of any celebrities that have visited gracing every wall inside (necessary?). It did take an age to get served and get drinks, but in fairness it was a... More

As we were in the area for the weekend, this place was recommended to ourselves by friends. Everything was perfection. The service was so warm & welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. And of course, the food was beautiful. Fantastic.

I went here recently for an anniversary meal; stunning place outside and in - especially so with the Christmas decorations up. As soon as you approach you're treating exceptionally; the door is held open for you, immediately greeted politely and shown to a table. There's two levels; an upper area for I'm guessing couples who have booked and a lower... More

My Mum took me here for lunch on my 21st birthday. We had to wait a while at the bar to be served before seating (It wasn't busy… the place had just opened) … after ordering our bottle of champagne we waited a little longer- with it being 20 minutes past the time we actually booked our table for, we...
