Booked this for a weekend away with a friend & we were not disappointed. This is a lively and busy venue , so not somewhere I would recommend for a romantic meal for two. Whilst not cheap - the food was excellent & the service attentive. My only gripe would be the automatic service charge on the bill - I... More

Was staying in Manchester last weekend for a wedding, and it was my wife and I's first weekend away without the kids for many years so wanted to make it special. After considerable research I booked Rosso, and was looking forward to a great night out. Things didn't start well, when escorted to our table, I found we were virtually... More

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.
