We went to Rosso for my partbers birthday, just the 2 of us. It was our first visit but chatted to a couple who were on there 8th visit and we can understand why, the venue and the food is just beautiful. This restaurant has one major flaw though... the service from the staff. On first glance the restaurant looks well staffed but the longer you are there the more you realise they aren't actually doing very much. We had 5 different waiters at our table and not one knew what the others had done before. Sometimes we had a few waiters come over in quick succession and other times, when we needed drinks, nobody was around to the point that front of house had to take our order. Our table was booked for a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't even half full. If the staff had some organisation and knew what they were doing this restaurant has the potential to be outstanding.

Service dreadful food average thank goodness the building is breathtaking as it’s Rosso’s only redeeming feature. We ordered a green tea but were given a normal tea the waiter realised his mistake after 5 minutes took the tea from us and promptly took it to the correct table!!!!!

We were 4 given a table for 6 but the extra settings were not removed until we did then ourselves.

Very disappointed

I was really looking forward to my first visit to the restaurant for my partners birthday
But it was average there wasn’t really a good atmosphere in there and felt like all the tables were all very close together so you knew what the people next to you where saying!

My food was very dry so I didn’t eat it alll

When placing the reservation online you are asked is this for an occasion, this was for my part ter birthday. Why ask the question if not recognising when we are there?

I will go back to the restaurant for a drink but not to eat again

The food was very poor - I ordered a medium veal cutlet at £30 - it was undercooked , unbelievably fatty and I had garlic spinach which was overdone and sautéed potatoes which were underdone- I can honestly say I’ve had many a better meal for a 1/3 of the cost . on The plus side it has a nice feel and the service was good

Hi, although we all enjoyed our meal I have 1 complaint. I told you it was my mum Stellas 74th birthday celebration. It was her birthday on 2.8.18. Unfortunately we buried dad on the 1.8.18 and this was the first date we could all make it. I saw lots of small cakes with candles in coming through. I really thought one would have come for her but it didn't. I did tell the receptionist on my way out and all she said was " yes we did have it down but it went to another table" they must have just accepted it!!! There was no apology. I was charged £12.50 as a tip and I really wish I hadn't paid it. I would like it refunded. And when I think about it , I did think we could of had wine at £10 per bottle and not £26 x 2. We actually poured most of it ourselves so not really sure what we paid 12.50 for. I will really think about whether to visit again!!! Susan

Food was great. However, the waiters interaction was none existent. The management had to keep telling them to do the basics. We waited 15 minutes for someone to clear our finished plates and then another 15 for the bill to arrive.

Great lunch once again. Value for money and great service. The only criticism was that it was very warm inside so it got as little uncomfortable towards the end of the meal.

Arranged a night away in Manchester and staying close by, so chose Rossi for late evening meal. Loved it. The decor, vibe and lay out were great. Music was quite loud for a restaurant but it fitted the vibe of the place. Would definatly return

Very disappointed with the food this time. I had specifically asked for a booth as it was my birthday and we were right by the kitchen. So disappointed with the food. I visit rosso every visit in Manchester as I always thoroughly enjoy it there so bitterly disappointed. Food was cold and didn’t taste great. With have to seriously consider whether I will go back

Overall, the experience given was good. The food was extremely tasty but came with a very hefty price tag for what it was. The service given on the night was pretty poor, me and my girlfriend were sat at our table for at least 30 minutes after our plates were cleared and we still wasn't offered a desert menu so we decided to cut the meal short. We were given two free cocktails once notifying the manager which was definitely a plus but it would of been nice to have a 3 course meal. Was a nice experience for a one off but won't be returning.

Been before and food was excellent, feel it’s a different chef. Service at the table was excellent. Wine good value but the lunchtime special menu wasn’t great. My risotto was the worst I’ve tasted very dry and stodgy. The mackerel pate had obviously come straight from the fridge but it was uninspiring. The only meal that was eaten completely was the chicken. I’d still go back as it’s a lovely lunch time venue, but I’d be reluctant to return for the dinner menu.
