Myself and 4 friends went for lunch this week. The place was beautiful, made even better by all the amazing Christmas decorations. Food was very good and reasonably priced for a restaurant in the city centre. Would definitely go back again.

Exceptional venue, the decor was stunning with a beautiful Christmas tree at the main entrance.

The service was brilliant my only comment would be that the waiter was a little slow to take my order initially but other than that it wasn’t perfect. Best waiting service I have experienced in a long time.

Wine was very expensive however, £17 for a large glass of Malbec which I thought was rather excessive, it was a lovely wine but I don’t think it is reasonable to charge so much for a single glass.

All in all an amazing birthday meal, would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone

Smart venue and good quality food in the main. We had the set lunch for 3 and whilst not earth shattering it was a good 2 course lunch and not too steep from a pricing perspective.

First visit to Rosso and it won’t be my last. I was in Manchester for a girls day out. Rosso was recommended by a friend and it certain did not disappoint. We all had the 2 course lunch menu. Every thing about it was excellent, right from the initial greeting to the end of the meal. Excellent, friendly service, well cooked, tasty food that was nicely presented (all served on hot plates, something that a lot of restaurants fall down on and is a real bug bear with me). The lunch menu is limited in choice but, for me, that was not a problem, I think extensive menus quite often leads to inferior food. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the ambience was spot on. I can not recommend Rosso highly enough, thank you for a lovely lunch.

We had a reservation booked for 9pm however we had to wait 45 mins until we got a table. In my experience a table should have been reserved which is the whole logic to booking a reservation online. We also felt once we did recieve our table and food ,the staff where constantly watching over our table to see if we had finished. We felt we were being rushed to eat and leave to free up the table.
Our food was hardly down our throats and staff where over clearing the table and handing us desert menu.
This was quite irritating and we could not relax and enjoy our night.

The restaurant had beautiful decor and vibe and the food was nice so no complaints in these departments however our experience was overshadowed by what we explained above.

The food, the atmosphere where second to none, the waiter was flawless and deserves a lot of credit! The rest of the staff where very polite.. we had to give up our seat at the back end of our meal for a large party (Eddie Hearns entourage) but was so apologetic and offered a nice free drink as compensation! Would definitely recommend, beautiful food in a beautiful building!

Been many times and has always been very good. Food was great and a very good atmosphere in Manchester with the opening of the Christmas Markets, so this was a great venue to finish the evening.

The worst spaghetti bolognese I have ever had. Far too salty and full of large cubes of beef. I ordered the small portion and left two thirds of it. Nobody came to ask if our meal was OK, so when the plates were cleared away I complained. Got no satisfaction from the waiter or the manager. No offer to reduce the bill, instead we were offered a coffee.
Grossly overpriced and service was lacking.
I will not be visiting Rosso again.

A lovely Italian very close to the hotel (the townhouse) myself and a friend were staying at for a conference.

For a Tuesday night the restaurant had a steady flow of people, good atmosphere and attentive service.

Portions were excellent and the food delicious. We went for the classics .. carbonara and lasagne .. couldn’t fault it other than too much to finish.

Absolutely loooooved the chocolate sphere dessert.. :)

Very nice spot where food quality and price are in very good balance.
Waiters are very attentive and polite, good service provided by them.
However the doormen may be friendlier and more service minded, otherwise it would receive 5 out of 5...

We came for dinner with some friends from Brussels and their son whose birthday it was. The atmosphere was great even though it was a Monday night there was still plenty of diners and good atmosphere. The service was impeccable and food delicious. I mentioned the birthday on the booking and James was given a lovely dessert with his name on and a candle and wished happy birthday by the waiters. They were delighted with our choice of restaurant and will definitely return next time they are over. We already eat here quite regularly. We would like to thank all your staff for a perfect evening
