My wife had previously eaten at Rosso and was so impressed that we visited whilst on a recent overnight trip to Manchester. I'm glad that she insisted we eat here as we opted for the lunch deal, two courses for £14.95 each, with a bottle of wine at just £9.95. Both meals were outstanding, (two bresaola starters followed by one... More

I have never actually been to Rosso in the evening but it is a must for business lunch. The menu is inventive but speedy, the price is reasonable and the service is excellent. The interior is stunning and they have done a good job blending the restaurant into the grandiose bank building.

Cannot comment on food as we were here just for a half-hour drinks pit stop. Absolutely lovely surroundings, very stylish and authentically Italian in an old Bank-style building with very ornate features.

A busy and popular restaurant/bar centrally located with sittings at 5, 7 and 9 (I think) for dinner (personally I hate set sittings but seemed to work ok for them). Good ambience and as you would expect lots of photos of famous sports stars who have visited. This is not fine dining rather competing with Browns, Zizzi, Jamie's etc (although... More

We came for Sunday lunch on Father's Day. This restaurant is very impressive, -location, surroundings/decoration, great food service, great menu. However, I booked our reservation months in advance through the Open Table app and specifically requested a high chair for our 9 month old baby (who always eats before us when we dine out). Upon arrival the restaurant was quite... More

Went on a Saturday lunch time, we had the set menu which is excellent value for money. With the set menu you can get a bottle of wine for £9.95, which I think is good value. The food was well presented and very tasty.
