Bar is great along with the atmosphere. However the food was average, the dish i had was very bland and nothing special at all.

Rosso’s Restaurant is my favourite restaurant in Manchester. If only I could transport it with me wherever I go! The food and the building itself is outstanding but for me, the best part of all is the service, which is 100% down to all of the staff. Not sure what the training involves when anybody new joins but they work so hard, they are so alert and they are extremely professional. Top notch!

Had the lunch menu which had a good choice and value for money especially with wine offer. Had the mushroom pate which was tasty. Main meal had the chicken which was delicious and the portions generous. The red wine was great too. The service was relaxed, friendly and not rushed. Booked again for November and looking forward to it.

Rosso restaurant is definitely well worth visiting. As soon as we walked in , we were greeting and the door was opened for us straight away. First thoughts visiting Rosso that it was a very high class restaurant, and this exceeded our expectations massively.

Food was good but service wasn’t on point also I did mention when booking online that it was my friends birthday so if you could do something a little special for her bday for example sing happy birthday or a dessert with a happy birthday message would have been great would have even payed that little extra to be honest however nothing was done, wasn’t pleased with that overall it was okay

Had a very special evening. Treated well by staff and enjoyed food. Wanted to visit and see the restaurant as I used to work there when it was a bank (40 years ago).

Rosso never fails to disappoint. This time, I booked a table at 5pm for my daughter’s 14th birthday and she had an amazing time. The waiters were attentive, the food arrived quickly - hot and cooked to perfection, the ambiance was bubbly, and to top it all off Rosso surprised us with a beautiful Happy Birthday plated dessert for my daughter. A fantastic time had! Thank you Rosso! X

Ross Restaurant, along with the lunch deal, was recommended to me by my colleague at work. My boyfriend and I visited for the first time on Saturday not knowing what to expect and let's just say, we were more than impressed. From the moment we walked in, we felt the elegance oozing from every corner of this well lit and lively restaurant.

The meal was very different yet very delicious; the staff were approachable and attentive; and the atmosphere was relaxing. The lunch time offer was perfect for us and we'd like to say thank you to the Rosso Restaurant Team for the lovely experience.

We'll most certainly be coming back for more.

Best wishes,
M&L

The cocktails are really good. We tried two appetizers and 3 pasta dishes . The pig trotter was the best but dry. All the rest of the dishes were bland and lacked seasoning. The pasta was over cooked as we prefer ours slightly less done. Service was pretty good. Unfortunately, we like going out to eat for the food experience and it was lacking tonight.

I came here on a friends recommendation. However, we had to wait 30 mins to be seated when I already had a reservation and then when we did it took nearly an hour for our main meals to be served, which at this point we had already consumed all of our drinks so our appetite for the food had disappeared. The service let the overall experience down as it was extremely slow for somewhere that didn’t seem that busy.

Food was genuinely amazing!... portion for my main was a little small but I have had other dishes in the past which were fine so I imagine it must just be that dish. We usually have an amazing time at Rosso, however we didn't feel very 'looked after' this visit. It felt like the staff were simply doing the bare minimum with us and after purchasing a bottle of champagne fora toast, we were slapped with the bill and said the table was needed straight away, when the restaurant didn't look at all. The food really was stunning and we didn't have to wait long, they put us in a booth which was greatly appreciated and their was a great atmosphere as well, i did think the bill was too expensive for what we had but I understand it is a high class restaurant so I didn't mind that. To be honest, I don't mind spending a lot of money on a nice meal especially Rosso because it's always outstanding, however, on this occasion it just wasn't. I'd say that after this experience I really hope on my next visit things are back to normal, and that this was just an 'off day'. Thanks for reading.

Rosso used to be one of my favourite restaurants but now, not so.

Not keen on the menu; overly fussy. Food was ok, service was good, ambiance was a bit clinical. Don’t understand why dance music was playing in all honesty and I just don’t think Rosso knows what it is.

WE have been in Rosso on several occasions but this was our first time dining.
The food was delicious - I had the king prawns followed by the lamb chops which were exceptional.
Can't wait to come back .
