Met an old friend here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Service was very good although at some times rushed. Minor grump though as they were very pleasant and efficient.

Visited Rosso for the first time with work colleagues. Food and service was good but to be charged £7.50 for a bottle of sparking mineral water was excessive. Not knowing the price of this before we ordered we were shocked to get the bill which showed £30.00 for four bottles of mineral water. Definately not worth it.

This used to be our go to restaurant in Manchester. The children's menu is brilliant with 3 courses for £10. The menu seems to have been changed recently and the new options don't seem so great. I would have been happier ordering from the kids menu. We don't drink alcohol and were paying £7.50 per drink where the glass was... More

Had an old fashioned business lunch where you want to impress without going over the top. Food and service where excellent - price reasonable. Add the surroundings and location and this is one of Manchester's best.

We had a lovely lunch in very special surroundings. The service was A1, friendly but efficient. The food was perfect and just the right amount. Can't wait to go back there

We had been birthday shopping and decided to stop here for lunch. The waiter we had initially on arrival was very good and attentive. But he seemed to move on and we ended up,with a more average waiter. Quality of food was good but not a lot of it and we weren't up sold so when I ordered the lamb... More

Second time to Rosso and it was better than the first time (which was very good). The waiter was very keen to take the order, so we had to tell him to calm down because we wanted to try a few different things, take our time and would not be rushed. Once he understood our approach everything was fine. The... More

My fiancée booked us in here for my 33rd birthday and I was really looking forward to it. The service was first class and very welcoming. The starters were lovely (bruschetta) and my fiancées main of pasta was really tasty. I had the lasagne but unfortunately it lacked meat and it had meatballs (a bit different) instead of the usual...
