ROSSO is an elegantly casual Italian Trattoria , owner Richard Couture, brings over 30 years of restaurant experience, opening the award winning American Club in Kohler, WI., to some of the finest Italian restaurants in New York City, Beverly Hills, and Naples. The warm, open kitchen features a wood-fired oven, in preparing your thin crust pizza. Using local, seasonal products whenever possible, the menu boasts a wood-fired grill. The C.A.B. center cut Filet Mignon and Ribeyes, are among the best steaks in town and the Chicken Parmesan--an American-Italian classic--sets the standard. The wine list is decidedly Italian and American. ROSSO also features a variety of Italian spirits and craft beers.The dining room is rustic, yet modern with rich woods and sleek leather chairs. There are two large communal tables for small groups to get together or for strangers to become friends.

Ribeye requested rare came out medium well. The most expensive thing on the menu should be prepared with the most care and precision.

Casual dinner - warm enough to eat outside which was a nice change. We ordered entree salads with salmon which were very good - salmon was done perfectly. Steak frites order by other in the party was also very good.

I've been there many times with Family and Colleagues. Great menu (margherita pizza is unique!), and well balanced menu (different choices). Wines are good, with reasonable prices. Service is excellent.

We had an outstanding dinner in a great atmosphere. Food, presentation, and service were excellent. We went out for our Valentine's dinner on a weekend night. It was a great choice.

Service could have been better. Food was good. I never expect great service on Valentine's Day since it is always so busy.

My girlfriend and I met here for Valentine’s day because it is half way between Charlotte and Charleston our respective cities. The service was excellent. The food was quick and evening was enjoyable. Would definitely meet there again.
