    Good service but food was just OK. Lovely surroundings but type and volume of music made it difficult to talk to each other

    We were asked to leave our table 3 times and move to the bar whilst still eating dessert because they had someone waiting for our table. The staff then took wine glasses out of our hands when we said we’d pay and leave rather than moving to the bar. Absolutely horrendous service. Will not return.

    Amazing venue, we have eaten here lots of times it's become a favourite. Lunch menu was a great choice, having not been able to visit for sometime was disappointing to see that the wine offers with Lunch is no longer available.

    Booked in advance and noted we were celebrating a birthday, not particularly busy on a Monday night. Met on arrival and directed to our table …. 👎🏻 Top of the stairs where everyone was walking past. Asked if we could sit in a booth next to us and told abruptly NO they’re for parties of 6 people. Fair enough, but restaurant was only half full. Food was nice, service was nice but slighted annoyed as NO parties of 6 arrived and the booth remained empty the whole time we were there. Shame really as we’d have had a much better evening if we’d have sat in a quieter spot. Definitely felt we were on the platforms at Piccadilly. Will we go again, with so much choice in Manchester, probably not.

    Lack of atmosphere as restaurant was very quiet; customer transport problems due to rail strike did not help. The Sunday lunch menu whilst good lacked at bit of flair. Could not fault the staff who were friendly and attentative and worked hard. Overall a good experience.

    Food outstanding but that's all I can say about the place. We arrived on time and table was not ready so had to wait in the bar area and get a drink for about 10 mins when we got in. This would not have been a problem, but then we were actually "kicked out" at the end. The bill had been paid but we had not finished our drinks and being told "we need the table". Absolutely disgusted with their service and the way we were treated and would never go back to the place. We had a pretentious waiter who made a patronising comment about the shape of their knives are "odd" and have to be held a certain way; charged for a "celebration birthday cake" that was not ordered, and then taken off the bill when they realised their error. The restaurant was not particularly busy with guests eating, so why they needed our table and had to kick us out is beyond me. The stairs going down to the toilets were constantly crowded with people taking selfies in the mirrors and blocking people getting past! It was a nightmare. When this was raised with restaurant staff, they said there was nothing they could do about it and people always do it. It was like a tourist attraction and people just walking in off the street to have a drink in the bar and they go and get a selfie in the mirrors!! Surely staff should be telling people to move along and stop blocking the stairs!! This was my second time visiting Rosso. The first time was a lot busier but fantastic in every way, no issues with anything at all, and certainly no-one blocking the stairs, or pretentious waiting staff! I will not ever go back to Rosso. This second visit has ruined my view of the place.

    The food was okay, it could use more flavour. For the price you would expect it to be perfect, but it wasn’t memorable. Drinks were lovely. And it was great that you could have off the menu drinks. Lovely setting but not anything out the park for the price overall.

    Fantastic restaurant, the pasta dishes we had were some of the best we have ever tasted. I also informed the staff it was my partners birthday and after the meal they gave us a free personalised desert wishing her happy birthday. This was super appreciated. 10/10 restaurant.

    It was lovly but I think it's a little on the expensive side. £16 for starters and £20 for chicken and chips. And the table charge of £20. We would go again but not any time soon.

    The food was pretty standard fair not worth the premium price. The best thing we had off the menu was the garlic bread with mozzarella. Additionally, it gets suddenly loud from about 8:30/9pm making it difficult to have a conversation. The staff were very positive and attentive and actually turned the music down when we requested it. Finally, I wasn't massively pleased that I needed to request my boyfriend's birthday dessert, after the bill had been paid because I had requested it upon booking. Overall, it was nice but wouldn't go back.
