Having gone to Rosso's for lunch we were disappointed with the lack of knowledge the chef appeared to have of Italian cooking! As my Husband is gluten free it is not always easy to find a restaurant to accommodate. Having spoken to the waiter we were assured that Rosso's did offer gluten free from the menu. My Husband settled for... More

The food and surroundings were very good. While a little expensive for what you actually get, this is the only criticism I can make. The surroundings and service are excellent, and certainly somewhere for special occasions.

There was a lot of hype with this restaurant among the company I went with, so my expectations were fairly high. The service was so so, but did not meet the standards I was expecting for this restaurant. The food itself was tasty, good Italian food, there was a lot of choice with a big menu and portions were of... More

Away for a hen weekend, we had been recommended Rosso’s , unfortunately it was just a bad experience from start to finish. We arrived at the restaurant five minutes late, where we were greeted by the manager and asked to take a seat and someone would come over to take a drinks order, while we waited for our table.

Went here for a works christmas meal. Was ok, slightly pretentious but I guess it's geared up for socialites who want to be seen. Think I need another trip to help me decide further

Our table was booked for 7pm for 4 people. We were hoping for excellent food, fine wine and a good catchup. We got food that was ok but nothing special, The chips left a lot to be desired - cooked through well on the inside but very pale and greasy on the outside. Didn't look very appetising at all. We...

My wife and I visited this restaurant at lunch time and chose from the two course lunch menu at £14.95 which we thought was good value for Central manchester . The food was excellent and the service was second to none. We counted twenty members of staff, all of whom were friendly and very attentive. We will definitely be visiting... More

My husband and I love it here one of our favourites great Italian food not a huge selection but what they do they do well. The cocktails are fab and the bar staff will alter them as and when you wish to suit your own taste. Great service and not too Pricey.

I visited with 2 friends and we enjoy regular lunches out across Manchester. Service and food was fine but I think the lack of atmosphere is down to just noise rather than any excitement about the venue. Depending on where you sit you end up in difficulty talking to each other and in a draft. OK - I'd probably go... More

Our hotel (The Radisson Blu Edwardian) managed to book us a table at this trendy restaurant owned by Rio Ferdinand at the last minute. Located at the top on King St, they have maintained the lots of the original features inside the space and together with the modern furnishings it makes for a swanky establishment that clearly appeals to the...
