Dined at Rosso's last night in a small group. Nice cocktails to start and festive menu was lovely but badly let down by the trio of stodgy puddings ( no choice) which mostly went back uneaten.

Went with 6 friends. Waited 20 minutes before food order taken. It would appear that we were served by the rude front of house manager referred to in other reviews here. After one person in our party tried to order something off the standard menu, the manager was heard muttering under his breath "for christ's sake". 5 out so the... More

We got seated quickly and the waiter was over quickly to take our order and brought us a garlic bread to tide us over before our starters came... More
