Being retired, we meet up for lunch in Manchester at least once per week. We have visited Rosso quite regularly over the past few years and have never been disappointed - excellent value for lunch and the house white at a tenner a bottle - you can’t beat that!

This is a trendy classy venue with a great ambience and buzzing atmosphere. The service is very good but is stretched during busy periods. The staff are lovely and smile a lot. Groups of diners can get a bit loud which needs managing for those around them. Diners make an effort to dress up, although I suspect that some girls dress to catch the eye of the potential footballer dining in Rio's place... The menu is good, not too many dishes and the food is delicious and portion sizes generous. It's not fast food albeit you only have the table for 2hours so as a party of 4, we felt a bit rushed and pushed out, which was a big downside for us and reduced the overall value as it isn't cheap. The bar area is mainly stools round a block and a few side chairs, designed for quick drinks before and after eating more than an evening drinking.
The bill was £350 for 4.
4x starters
4x mains
4x Irish coffee
4x cocktails
1 x bottle Zinfandel
2x glasses preseco
2x soft drinks
Would go back as a treat but couldn't afford to go weekly.

Food was poor, I'm sure gravy was Aunt Bessie gravy granules. Wine terrible. Had to wait a long time also for food.

The food was lovely, but we were put on a table for 2 that was a foot away from another couple who were arguing when there other tables available and other parties of two were sat on tables for 4.
This totally ruined the feel of the night as I couldn't speak without raising my voice and I kept making eye contact with the gent as he was sat the same side as my husband. Very awkward atmosphere and I think poor planning to put two couples next to each other. I felt like I was on a double date

Brilliant restaurant. I dined there with my wife and child for lunch and the staff were very welcoming and looked after our dining needs. Most of all the food was awesome and cost was very reasonable for a high standard restaurant.

We attended Rosso for my mum's 60th birthday. We had the lunch menu which was very reasonable and a bottle of wine for £9.95.
The service was good, we were served by two different waitresses, the second was friendlier and more chatty than the first.
The food was good, there could have been slightly more but we didn't leave feeling hungry. As it was my mum's birthday they surprised her with a dessert of profiteroles with a candle and Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce which was a lovely touch.

Not eaten here for a few years as the food had become somewhat disappointing and didn't do justice to the magnificent surroundings. Gave it another try this week and was very impressed with the makeover - the room is bright, white and welcoming. The food was good, service could have been better, the Italian white wine offered as part of the lunch deal (which we mixed and matched with the a la carte menu) was described as good but, in my opinion, was not very good at all (we knew we were taking a risk at £10/bottle though). Overall, a good lunch and when we return we will choose a more expensive wine because, as ever, you do get what you pay for up to a point!

My partners 60th birthday. Started well and 3 of the 4 main dishes were excellent. Mine, though, was awful. At the end of the meal, when asked by the waiter if everything was OK he was told my fish soup, which was only part consumed, was the worst I'd ever been served. He did not know what to do or say! He asked if I'd like another plate, and when I said everyone had finished their meal he sort of shrugged and cleared the table.
Later, we asked another waiter if they would send over a profliterole with a lit candle to acknowledge my partner's birthday, as we had seen one delivered to a table of diners.
The profliterole and candle were duly presented to a very confused couple at the wrong table then whisked away before we had chance to claim them.
Not the best performance from a supposed top restaurant.

What can I say - another evening and another great night at Rosso's! The staff cannot do enough for you, from the doorman, to the concierge through to the waiting & bar staff.
Its clean, and the staff take pride in what they do. I haven't yet had a bad experience here at all. The food is great with a fantastic choice on the menu. The wine is good and drinks at the bar can be fun. Its a great place for a celebration, or even a proposal!
One thing I would recommend is to turn the volume down on the speakers directly over the tables as sometimes the resident DJ gets a bit carried away and conversation can be difficult but other than that - TOP JOB & thanks to all the staff who made our night very special indeed.
