Arrived approx 10 mins early for our 6pm booking and told table just being laid so ordered drinks at the bar. At 6.10 enquired about table to be met with confusion. At 6.20 we enquired about table again and told it was just being laid on the upper level. Sat down 5 minutes later at a cramped table (not on the upper level) - half an hour after our original booking time. Waiter apologised for the wait as though it we'd only been waiting a couple of minutes. Waited between 10-15 minutes for someone to bring my daughter a menu and to order drinks. We left at this point, with hungry children . Won't be returning. Which is a shame because the restaurant itself looked beautiful. Shame the service left a huge amount to be desired.

Can't review the food cos we didn't actually get to eat anything.

Always a nice occasion to dine at Rosso - especially with it so beautifully decorated for Christmas. Bit of a wait for the table but once we sat down the staff were good, food was nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our 10 year old daughter felt very grown up!

First visit to Rosso for my friends 40th. The restaurant is amazing and the food was fantastic. My only complaint was that when I rang to advise that we were running 5 minutes late for the table. We rushed to get to Rosso to be told when we arrived our table was even ready and was left waiting for 30 minutes to be seated. But overall we had a lovely evening and the restaurant staff were very helpful.

Rosso has been one of my favourite restaurants for years and always delivers on impeccable service and great value cuisine in a beautiful setting. Fab for ladies who lunch, meeting friends, Sunday lunch and intimate dinners. The cocktails may be a little pricey ...but it’s THE best pornstar in town!!! Xxx

I was looking forward to meeting with my friends for a relaxing evening of good food and conversation.
On arrival at 6:30 for a 7:00pm booking, we were invited by the front of house staff to avail of the opportunity to purchase a drink from the bar as it would be closing at 7:00pm for a private function.
On attendance at the bar we were told that the bar had closed and unfortunately we couldn't be served. Returning to the front of house, without apologising for the confusion, we were then taken to our table. Unfortunately, although the food was good and the staff who attended the table were enthusiastic and mannerly, our evening, which hadn't got off to a good start,was ruined by ongoing interruptions, and an overwhelming feeling of being rushed to both order and finish our meal.
Repeated enquires about being ready to order, had we finished, would we like more drinks, were our meals satisfactory and removal of plates, cutlery and glasses before, on one occasion, the drink had been finished, all made for an unsatisfactory experience.

This was my second visit and I absolutely love this venue. Very friendly and relaxed. My only criticism would be that this time our table was very close to the next one. So much so me and my friend felt that we were being overheard. Everything else fantastic.

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

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!

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.. :)
