“Out of this world”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Rosso has really changed my perception on Hotel food. For a minute i was so into my food i forgot i was in Zambia, the ambiance, the service, the FOOD!! Good Lord, Chef Pierre and his crew really put love in the food. I would and will recommend Rosso to anyone looking for excellent food and service for their buck!! Clemantine and I are for ever thankful and grateful for the amazing food and service.

“Just like Mama used to cook...”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

If you feel Luke getting close to Italy in Lusaka this is the restaurant for you. The place is spotless the ambiance warm for a Hotel restaurant and the service if Emma is in splendid. The food is the rich Italian food made the way just like Mama used to cook.

“Why go somewhere else?”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The food is good - the staff friendly - they accept feedback - the atmosphere is perfect. So if you stay at Intercon in Lusaka and can switch between 2 good restaurant in the same hotel - I think you should be happy.

“Great New Restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel - Lusaka”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Rosso Trattoria - Pizzeria in the Intercontinental Hotel is outstanding. I happened to be in town the night of the Grand Opening and was blown away to find a true Italian restaurant in the city. The room has the feel of a small restaurant in Venice, well appointed with a staff that upholds the excellent quality of the service the hotel is known for. They have hired an Italian chief who has put together an outstanding menu. The food - WOW what else can I say. I found out that they make their own pasta and they have imported a Pizza oven. On my own rating I think it is one of the top 3 Italian restaurants (outside of a couple of trips to Italy) in the last 10 years. There was a group in the restaurant including the Italian Ambassador who seemed to enjoy the food and service as much as I did. This is a find, and if they can maintain what they have created it will be a destination stop while in Lusaka. Make reservations because as the word gets out this will become the "in" place to dine in Lusaka.
