    Disappointed to see other guests dress sense when paying an average £100 per head with a couple of drinks Jeans /t-shirts & trainer shoes is more like McDonald's restaurant I arranged for the birthday desert that I didn't get & to be honest all seemed to be a little pushed to finish the dinning time Also placed us on the smallest table when other tables were available Unfortunately I won't be dining at Rosso restaurant again

    Lovely evening with nice food, must say the starters are far too big of a portion. Buy that is just my opinion Garlic bread was very garlicky too much garlic paste, just a tad over kill. But Lovely meal my husband had the lamb chops he said they were lovely. And I had the pasta with truffle sausage amaxing. At the end of our meal we felt very rushed, when we asked for the bill, and was given this by the waitress. As she put it down my husband begins to read it the manager is right there behind the waitress and then demands we give him bill back to take care payment. I said can you hang on a minute, you see we've only just been given it, he's trying to check it. Then the manager says do you need a calculator!!!! This I let slip. It wasn't until we got to our hotel room across the road, that we realised they had added on an extra drink at £13.00. After calling to let them know they did rectify and refund us. I don't know if they were in a rush to get us out and the next people in but I felt it was a little rude. Over all the interior service was plesent.

    The interior of the restaurant was really nice and one would assume the price range and the quality of food/service matches that standard. Unfortunely that wasn't the case. I ordered a "BISTECCA DI MANZO" Medium-Rare and received a Well-Done steak. Any waiter with little amount of experience should be able to tell the difference between a Medium-Rare and a Well-Done just by looking at it. My wife ordered a "RISOTTO CON POLLO AFFUMICATO" and the rice was undercooked, the waiter stated "It's the way it's supposed to be". But I have personally eaten risotto in many parts of the world (Including Italy) and the rice is always firm and never crunchy. On top of that my wife had to ask for a pineapple juice 3 consecutive times. We did end up get replacement dishes and the gentleman assisting us was incredibly helpful and understanding. He even added a slight discount. But the overall quality and presentation of the food was underwhelming and does not match the price range.

    Food was good, desserts a bit disappointing - my tiramisu was definitely not the way real tiramisu should be. There was a DJ but music was way too loud upon arrival, although it was eventually lowered down. A bit overpriced for what you get.

    Went for my 50th. Food was fantastic. Service was pretty poor. Food came way too quick between starter and main. Didn’t have time to breath or chat. After main, we were just ignored. Not asked for dessert or drinks. Server was blunt and not a smile to be seen. Had to chase the bill. Wanted it to be so special but sadly was let down. Won’t be going back.

    Our party had a fab time, company of course but basically the decor is fantastic, the food is very good and obviously what you would expect from an Italian restaurant. However, the music is a bit loud so it was a bit difficult to hear each other speak over the music. Our french waitress was dead nice and friendly and made our evening special especially for one of our friends.

    Have been coming to Rosso’s for quite a few years and always have enjoyed the experience. Staff excellent beautiful building. Food has always been excellent. Not so keen this time choice wasn’t as good as it has been in the past. I would still recommend it and would always go back as I know the menu does change. Hopefully next time it will be as good as it always is.

    My wife and I booked this restaurant for our first wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. The internal surroundings were spectacular, the service was great and attentive, I was a little disappointed that a service charge is added in automatically to the bill, I would have been happy to tip, it’s just nice to be asked rather than an expectation. I was extremely pleased with the food, I had the calamari to start which is the best I’ve ever tasted and the fillet steak. For main which was bursting with flavour, even the mushrooms and grilled tomato was exquisite, my wife had the lamb which was equally as good, definitely compliment the chef.

    After our first visit to Rosso was such an enjoyable experience we decided to book a 2nd visit for part of our 16th anniversary celebrations in Manchester. Every part of the night was exceptional, the front of house was efficient and welcoming, the table staff were on point, the food was superb (even the surprise, un-requested free celebratory eclair that cost us £5 we are from Yorkshire and this was slightly annoying, but not sufficiently annoying to spoil the feedback). We then retired to the bar where the gentleman behind the jump offered a fantastic service with humour and invention. We will return in the near future (as long as choux eclairs are off the menu)😂 Yours thankfully the Hynes family.

    We unfortunately had a poor experience at Rosso. The food was average and everyone felt a bit underwhelmed. We had the bill slammed on the table without any notice or warning which killed the vibe a bit, since we were there for a wedding celebration. We appreciated the dessert to say congrats but then realised they added it to our bill. We sent the bill back a few times as it was £50 more expensive than it should have been. The atmosphere was a bit crap and with it being a wedding celebration we expected a little more. Won’t be retuning.

    Upon arrival we were very pleased with the venue and setting. Service was top notch. The only thing we could fault was we were put right next to a very loud and disruptive table. It was a birthday treat for my girlfriend but it was unfortunately ruined by the next table. The staff never once asked the group to keep the noise down. Apart from that it was a nice place. I don’t think we would visit again.

    Excellent service can’t fault the staff at all. They were all very efficient, attentive and polite. We were dining as a table of four which included two young children (6 & 2). We ordered them a garlic bread starter and it was honestly huge. So would definitely recommend getting one between two small eaters. Their mains were the meatballs and a cheese and tomato pizza. Again would definitely recommend the pizza for sharing as this again was the same size as the starter. All their food was really good but just too much of it for them being small and not having big appetites. We ordered a bruschetta and the bread with olives. Definitely recommend sharing the bread and olive starter. Massive portion again. For mains we had the CAVATELLI CON SALSICCIA AL TARTUFO NERO and the RISOTTO CON POLLO AFFUMICATO. Both meals were excellent, again very large portions. It looked like we hadn’t enjoyed our meals as a lot of food was wasted but we just couldn’t manage it all. Excellent value for money as we had wine and soft drinks too. Would definitely visit again.

    Nice place well set out. Staff attentive and professional Our whole party found the food very salty and this did not allow the flavours to be enjoyed. The food was at best average and I have had better at high street Italian restaurants at a far better price.

    Myself and my daughter went for a meal at Rosso which is a lovely restaurant. I have to be honest though the food main course was just ok. I have had far better carbonara and far cheaper. It was very oily and didn’t finish it to be honest. Hopefully this was a one off.
