Steak was over cooked, went for my girlfriend 25th birthday and let them know it was her birthday and nothing was done. Been pervious to this and was great but this time wasn’t good at all

We were placed in a corner table with poor lights and noisy neighbors. When I required to change a table, the waiter told me that it was fully booked last night. However I checked it’s website found there are various available tables left to book. My friends and I was really disappointed.

Food Was very nice.. and the waitress who served us was lovely. We both had garlic bread with tomato and then fillet steak. Steak was really really good. No complaints about anything from us. Meal was a little bit expensive for me (£130) for 2 with 1 drink each. However, I really enjoyed it and have positive feelings towards the night.

Really enjoyed our first visit to Rosso. Beautiful setting. Lunch menu and wine fantastic value. Food itself was really lovely but not quite 5 stars e.g with my gnocchi, while it was nice I couldn’t tell any difference between that and shop bought - would expect restaurant quality to be far superior in Rosso. Still, enjoyed it. Service was nice.

The service was attentive and the correct balance of speed, not rushed but nor left waiting too long between courses. The menu was extensive with a great variety with something for everyone. Having gone to the toilet on arrival so apron 9PM the toilets had run our of loo role in some cubicles and the wash basins were extremely untidy with no hand towels left and all spilled over the floor. Aside from that the food was excellent. There was a service charge added automatically which I understand is common practice for large groups although I am not sure I agree for x2 diners. This wasn't too much of an issue as the service was good and I would have left a tip anyway. I would have been somewhat grumpy with this had the service not been good. Overall a great menu with a lots of choice, the food and the service also great it was just the toilets that prevented a full 5 star review.

Unfortunately my friend smashed a glass and there was mess everywhere (including other diners :(). All sorted out with good humour. Will go back... actually we are going back... 9/07/19!

We travelled here from reading for my husbands 30th. We had a lovely meal. The food was delicious and my husband said it was the best steak he had ever had.
The service was exceptional and I haven’t got a bad word to say. Overall an amazing place with fantastic staff.

Had an amazing lunch. Food and service were amazing. Booked this lunch for my partner's 60th birthday celebration. He loved every mouthful of food.... The desserts were had were scrumptious. Wine offer of £10 per bottle is an unbeatable offer. My steak was cooked to perfection... On leaving the restaurant we were offered free Rosso branded umbrellas to use and keep. These were a lifesaver as the Manchester weather was very wet yesterday. The umbrellas are of a strong high quality. Thank you Rosso for a wonderful lunch and the tirramassu you gave my partner as an extra birthday treat. The set lunch was amazing value.

What a Restaurant. Have visited many times, this time for my partners Birthday. Restaurant is beautiful, food outstanding and the service and staff just fabulous. Staff even took time to present my partner with a complimentary Birthday "dessert" and a song. We live 45 miles away and will always dine here rather than locally. Looking forward to the next visit.

The inside decor was very nice and the service was pretty spot on including the speed of the food coming out!

Just think the seating plan could be better as they bunched us all up to one corner and the other tables we sat on were pretty close so we were sat in the middle and could hear both conversations, one table in particular were just being annoying and kept taking out loud and taking pictures with the flash constantly.

Overall I don’t think it was all that in there, the food is pretty average for the restaurant reputation and all the reviews that go along with it. I ordered the sirloin steak and it was rather bland for what you order.

Literally took us to sit down, eat and pay within 1 hour, couldn’t wait to get out the restaurant as the experience and atmosphere was a bit dead inside.

Just superb ! This is a restaurant at its best, from the moment we walked in the door the staff were friendly, our waitress was just superb, we had the two course lunch menu with wine, and a couple of antipasto bits, which was incredible value (total meal £56). The restaurant it’s self is stunning, I imagine when full it could be a little bit noisy, it was busy when we were there and the atmosphere was great. The food is in another league it’s up there with the best, our lunch options were from the main menu and were heavily discounted, but you’d pay full price for them they were that good. The chefs are obviously on there “a” game the produce quality was great which meant the flavours out of simple ingredients were out of this world, the presentation was good to. I don’t know why I go to other restaurants and get disappointed, I should just book Rosso and be happy ! Thank you to everyone there for a truly incredible lunch !

Would have given a full 5 stars had there been toilet roll in the toilets. There wasn’t any in toilet I used, or the one my Mum used.
Apart from that minor issue I do love to dine at Rosso and will continue to do so!
Staff are always so pleasant and attentive.

We came as a group of girls and it is a lovely place and amazing food. Only criticism, was that the two girls on the next table received a complimentary cocktail with a candy floss in it with their bill. When we got our bill and asked if we could have one too as they looked lovely, The waiter said it was up to the managers discretion, which seemed unfair to pick and choose.
