My friend and I met for a catchup. I ordered from the lunch menu she from the main. We were each delighted with the quality of both meals and generous portions. No compromises here. Quite often a lunch special means less on the plate. Not at Rosso! Great atmosphere, very relaxed even though it was busy, lovely attentive staff. Great offer on wine when one person has the lunch special which was a bonus. Will be back soon.

Love the place! Was extremely busy and table not ready and had to the pay for a drink at the bar. No complementary drink like in other establishments. I then ordered no egg in my soup and it came with an egg which was disappointing but I didn’t raise it as could see how hard the staff were working. Food excellent as always. Will be back again!

Lamb shank was so hard we couldn’t cut it
Nobody’s food was hot just warmish like it had been sat there for a while
When we explained the lamb was hard the service was bad, no apology just a shoulder shrug
Meal was £140 and no one loved their food
Scenery is lovely and door staff pleasant but that’s it really. Wouldn’t go back

Loving the new decor. Food was lovely and service outstanding, is a little on the pricey side but you have to expect it in the centre of Manchester.

Visit regularly and always enjoy the food. The lunchtime menu is good value especially with the wine offer. The staff are friendly and approachable. It’s a lovely building to dine in.

Overall pretty good. Service was poor and slow our second round of drinks took about 15 mins to arrive after ordering which was only two drinks. To pay the bill it took 30 mins to wait to actually pay.
Great atmosphere good music.

I believe our table was no3 l. we were served by a young blond lady. Her service was perfect! I couldn’t fault her or any other part of our time in Rosso. If management read this please thank our waitress for making our night a special one. She’s an asset to your team!!!!

The food was absolutely amazing, quality of food at The Rosso Restaurant is 10/10 for me. I got the rib-eye steak and it was the best steak I’ve ever had however the only downside to this restaurant is that it is a little pricey but worth it.

The service was very good an attentive waiter ..the food was very nice but I found the black garlic pasta with crab quite stodgy and for the price a small amount of crab..my partners shoulder of lamb with pasta was much nicer and not stodgy at all..the wine was very palatable at £27 for a standard red it was drinkable but again overpriced..the Restaurant was beautiful an amazing building..would I go again..possibly not but it was passable..

Staff weren’t very warm or attentive. Extremely loud atmosphere could barely speak to the rest of the party. Food arrived lukewarm and forgot to bring water for the table.

Great food, lovely ambience and decor. Staff were polite, friendly, service was fairly quick.
Atmosphere was really good and it was lovely to have music in the background that wasn't too loud that you could have conversations with the rest of our table.

The overall vibe was lovely. Our steaks were a little on the tough side and also salty. But all in all the evening was overly. The service was amazing. I just feel for what we paid the food could have been nicer :)

Always had a great time at Rosso over all the years we’ve been going. However the service was shocking. One of our party was struggling to decide even though we had started to order. Rather than helping and making suggestions the server just walked off and started to serve other tables. The worst experience I’ve ever had in a place like Rosso. McDonald’s service is better
