"I love the relaxed feel of"I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The table was split on the monkfish- my girl friend from Italy first time in. Manchester thought it was great. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.10/06/2013 00:00:00Always lives up to expectationsI always try to dine here when in Manchester, a favoured place and deservedly so.06/06/2013 00:00:00The restaurant environmentThe restaurant environment is very good, no matter for the family or friends. It is also a good place for the business meal. The service is good as they charged the service charge on the bill directly.29/05/2013 00:00:00Great lunch experience.Venue and ambience excellent.Friendly,helpful staff with a sense of humour.Special lunch menu was very good value for money.29/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely food & bargain wine prices!had an anniversary meal here with my wife recently, they catered very well for our request to have an intimate table, though I was expecting a bit more in terms of a nicer position / view by the window in the restaurant as I had requested this ahead of eating.
the food was excellent though, standard, portion size & quality, i could not fault this. great deal that they have £5.95 for a bottle of house wine whilst you're dining from set menu though - exceptional value indeed!27/05/2013 00:00:00Great meal in lovely surroundingsMy husband and I visited for lunch on Sunday. The restaurant was busy with a great atmosphere and the food and service were great.
I would recommend Rosso to anyone26/05/2013 00:00:00Love this restaurantWent on a Sunday night May Bank holiday. Booked for 10pm. Our table was ready immediately. The service was as usual excellent, attentive and friendly. We ordered garlic bread (crispy flat pizza type not too much oil/butter) lobster claw with avocado (generous portion, tasted lovely, not covered in mayo or sauce) Then the fish platter for one! this could feed 3!! It was huge. Delicious but far too much and my partner loves fish! I ordered monkfish in tomatoes. We had garlic spinach and fries. The whole meal was tasty, well presented, generous portions. A pornstar martini (they make the best) from the bar and a chocolate and orange cocktail to finish. Can't fault this restaurant. It has a great vibe, lovely food and friendly efficient staff.26/05/2013 00:00:00FantasticRosso's a great place to dine with friends and at lunch time it is definitely value for money. It was recommended to me by two different lots of friends and have now visited twice.

Good food if a little expensive. Recommended.24/04/2013 00:00:00Good food and good service.Had a lovely evening. Food was lovely, service was very good. The only time we had to make an effort to get their attention was when we wanted the bill. The only down side for us was the 10% service charge which I could understand for large groups but not for 2 people, Ironically the 10% was slightly lower than what we were going to leave but didn't then because of it.24/04/2013 00:00:00Special and memorableEverything about Rosso was special ........ food, service and ambiance.

We were welcomed not rushed and felt important we then were seated and allowed time unrushed to decide on wines and food our order was mainly fish as there are very few good fish restaurants in Manchester and wasn't disappointed the sole and risotto der mere were excellent fresh and full of flavour this set off by the ambiance and unrushed service made such an enjoyable evening for my partner and I
Will recommend and definitely return.
Many thanks to all the staff for their friendliness and willingness to create a lasting impression.

If your looking for a place with great food and atmosphere in Manchester this place is it. Great selection of pastas and appetizers (excellent calamari). Excellent bar with a great selection of drinks for pre/post dinner drinks.
Service can be a little slow on busy nights, but not that big of an issue if you are not in a rush.05/03/2013 00:00:00Lunch set is goodGood service from the staff, they are polite and professonal. And also good quality of food. I would recommend it to my friend if they go Manchester.04/03/2013 00:00:00rosso1st visit here. Excellent food service and surroundings. Couldnt fault. Will be returning.20/02/2013 00:00:00When can I go again?!I was very impressed with Rosso. I visited with a friend and we ordered from the £12.99 lunch menu.
It was superb and good portion sizes for lunch. Also, we added a bottle of wine to our lunch for just £5!
I highly recommend the crab and chili spaghetti, although I have to say, we struggled to choose because
everything on the menu sounded delicious (usually I struggle to find something appetising on a lunch menu).
Will be going again for the Al la carte menu in a couple of weeks!17/02/2013 00:00:00Great ValueGo for the special lunch menu, which in fact is available until 6pm. A good selection of starters and mains, better than on some other restaurants a la carte menu and all for £12.95. And if thats not enough a bottle of wine with the offer for just £5.95.
Great value13/02/2013 00:00:00Simply amazingThe buzz of Italy in the centre of Manchester. Rosso delighted me and my partner the second we entered not only did everywhere look stunning but the mood was perfect. The dining area buzzed whilst still being intimate and the service from our waiter was outstanding!!! Then there's the food!!! My partner described it as the best meal she has ever eaten and I couldn't disagree. Pigs cheek and black pudding starters were magnificent and cooked to perfection! Minted lamb for our mains was simply the nicest meat I've ever eaten! Then a cheesecake tiramisu mash up to top it all off!!! I will definately be returning for our next special occasion!! Bit pricey for every day but well worth treating yourself!!!!!12/02/2013 00:00:00Gorgeous resterauntGreat place to eat . Went there on our anniversary and the resteraunt made the day even more special. Great staff , amazing food. Would highly rate it.11/02/2013 00:00:00A great meal!We enjoyed another fabulous meal in Rosso. This time the large seafood linguine hit the spot with the best variety of seafood I've ever had in a pasta dish. We barely managed to share a very tasty raspberry cheesecake to complete a delicious and filling dinner.
The service, as usual, was very good and Russell's choice of songs ensured a great ambience.26/11/2012 00:00:00
