Nice food and drink

A group of 4 ate for a birthday meal. 3 courses and drinks came to £271 which is a little steep for Italian food which is basically pasta, pizza and salads. The food was very tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is in a listed building and is very nice inside. The only... read more

Great looking restaurant inside and out. Great service, great food and great wine. Definitely worth a visit, we went at Christmas time and the decor was great.

The restaurant is totally stunning. Fantastic building with a really good atmosphere. The waiting staff were on the ball and the food was great. Menu is quute extensive but was a little on the pricey side. Very good experuence overall. The only thing that let it down (slightly) was the maitre de, she was yawning towards the end of the...

Drink orders were taken as soon as we were seated, and arrived quickly. We ordered starters and mains, the starters arrived very quickly. Great food and proffesional service with good knowledge of wine. Only fault was that one starter and one main were wrong, however the mistakes were quickly corrected but Will definitely return.

Visited with the girls on a night out. The food didn't blow me away. Opinion was split. Have to say it must be a one off for me and I will go back and try it again.

Pricey but good service. Very good surroundings and the food is excellent with a range of food you can't always get in other similar restaurants. A very good atmosphere is created, although sitting close to the kitchen exit isn't ideal. Great for special occasions.

We've been to Rossos on several occasions and the experience is always excellent. You are always greeted when you a arrive and they always offer to hang up your jacket. The food is always excellent and great value for money. We had the Sunday menu with wine for £9.95. There's not many top class restaurants who offer wine at that... More

Visited Rosso with my sister and her husband last Sunday. The fixed price three course lunch menu was outstanding. Food really tasty and well cooked. The service slightly let the experience down with waiters not very attentive and leaning over two guests when removing plates etc. however definitely worth a visit.
