Menu is extensive, great selection of drinks, lively ambience, service was a little difficult and my husband was cold and draughty underneath the air conditioning, but we plan to return soon. The lobster crostini was fabulous!

The service was very poor no drinks available which we wanted, the waitress was basically mute and rude. Wouldn’t go back. Garlic bread didn’t have one tiny bit of seasoning.

Me and my boyfriend went to Rosso with high expectations. Although the menu was pricey we were happy to pay for high quality food. However, the value for money was atrocious. The starter we ordered was a very small portion and we had to send a pizza back as it was well below average and quite frankly unpleasant to eat. We won’t be returning sadly. On a positive note however the ambience was nice.

The food was lovely and we really enjoyed the meal. The restaurant was very cold (had to keep my coat on) I think the air-con was maybe too high.

Service wasn't overly friendly. I also asked someone where the disabled toilet was and they directed me to the stairs... :(

The waiter who took our payment was lovely though, and also noticed the conversation about the bathroom and ran over to point me in the right direction. I'm not sure of his name but he came on our section around 4pm and was lovely! He made the experience in the space of 5 minutes I think.

This was our first time at Rosso and we were celebrating a family birthday. We loved the incredible atmosphere created at Rosso. The decor is absolutely beautiful and the restaurant was busy and lively, but not too loud. There was a large and varied menu and we were spoilt for choice, especially by the fish and seafood. The food arrived promptly and it was well portioned, beautifully presented and tasted absolutely amazing. We had a great evening at Rosso and will definitely be returning.

Lovely food, atmosphere and staff. However one big disappointment was asking if it was a special occasion on booking - I put that it was my mums 50th and we got a lovely dessert sent to her. The issue was she had not only already ordered a dessert, but she was then charged for the birthday dessert!! Not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things but it is the principal. I have never been anywhere where they have asked if it’s an occasion then charged you for a dessert/drink etc. Very cheeky and I won’t be making the same mistake again.

Service is terrible really spoilt the night. Waiting half an hour for drinks. Waitress didn’t understand our request for our steaks. Staff look unkempt. Didn’t sit at the table we requested. We ate our food and left after a drink or two after we planned to stay the night.

This was my second visit to Rossos the first time I went it was amazing this time I found the food wasn’t as good as the first time I was quite disappointed I ordered the exact same as the first time and it was nothing like the first time, I ordered the carbonara and I was luke warm and was quite tasteless, when I got it the first time it was amazing really creamy and tasty.

Went there with my Partner for our Anniversary meal, lovely food and really friendly staff, slightly loud however that is to be expected as it was quite busy with birthday meals and family's, as well as the high ceiling making the noise echo slightly, over all a very joyous time and will definitely go again!
