“Mouthwateringly good :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

I just cannot praise Rossi's highly enough!

The food never fails to impress, you're never waiting long no matter how busy it is.
The atmosphere is also warm and friendly.
The staff always treat us like extensions of La Famiglia. (Lovely Maria!)

We don't live close enough to go as often as we want, but when we used to live round the corner it was a an addiction for us! A real jewel in the crown of Sheffield.

“Distinctly Average!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

As we live in the Nether Edge area and had never given Rossi's a try we decided to abandon our usual favourite Italian restaurants and give it a go. In short, I won't ever be returning.

The building is lovely, the service was great, out bottle of Prosecco was fabulous and very reasonable at £20. The food however was extremely disappointing. My starter of king prawns looked great on the plate but the prawns were tough and chewy. However my dinner companions said their mushroom and prawn dish was decent. We had to wait a substantial amount of time between our starters and main course, longer than what I would consider the norm. My main of filleto Rossini, which I asked for medium-rare came medium-well. I've had this dish in several other restaurants before and it didn't match up. It was just average. The sea bass was with prawns looked great but arrived luke warm at best and was completely bland and over cooked.

I know this restaurant has consistently good reviews lately which is why we decided to give it a go , so either we picked a bad night or Rossi 's customers really don't understand what good Italian food is.

“Fabulous Italion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

If you live nearby or just find yourself in Sheffield for whatever reason and you fancy an Italion meal you need to visit Rossi's. We have dined there several times now and each time the staff and of course the excellent food have been just right. Set in an old bank on the corner of Sharrow Lane no expense has been spared to create the spirit of Italy complete with pillars, cheeky statues and a ceiling painted by Leonardo himself on his last visit to Sheffield. In all seriousness wonderful food in a lovely setting all make for a great dining experience.

“Rossis Italian Restaurant Sheffield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

I celebrated my birthday last Saturday evening at Rossi's Italian Restaurant in Sheffield, the whole experience from booking to the end of the evening was fantastic. The service, ambience, cleanliness was first class and the food excellent. My family (we have two children aged 9 and 12) had a great evening and we would highly recommend Rossi's to everyone.
