Rosso can be found in the centre of Manchester, just at the top of Kings Street, its location is enviable and is the perfect place to stop by for dinner after a tough day of shopping. Having visited on numerous occasions in the past, we were excited to return and see if it had retained its charm.

Being a Grade II listed building and being 116 years old; this restaurant’s setting is quite stunning. Features include stained glass windows and high vaulted ceilings, along with the old, it was refreshing to note the new, in that the interiors had been recently refurbished, and the restaurant is now freshly renovated in a wash of white.

Despite its reputation for celebrity guests, Rosso retains a calm and relaxing ambience which makes diners feel instantly at ease. When we arrived we were greeted warmly before being shown to our table.

“We remain adoring of this wonderful restaurant.”

We decided to have an aperitif to start the evening off properly. I decided upon the La Vera Limonata which is a mix of lemongrass, ginger, lemon, thyme and lemonade – the flavour combination was simply superb; refreshing and punchy. My partner chose the Colazione Perfetta which consisted of aloe vera, matcha green tea and cucumber, which again was delightfully refreshing.

To begin our dining experience, I chose the Tagliatelle con Pollo – wonderfully fresh tagliatelle served with garlic chicken, cream, curly kale and pistachio. Delicate, yet full of flavour; this dish certainly hit the spot. My partner went for the Aragosta – fresh lobster roasted with chilli and garlic and garnished with fried kale. This was a spectacular dish that was fresh and rich, and perfectly balanced.

For my partner’s main course, she opted for the Grigliata di Pesce Misto, which came as a selection of salmon, cod, monkfish, tuna and sea bass, all grilled and served with fried potatoes, salsa rosso and fresh lemon. The fish was cooked to perfection and was so fresh; this was certainly a highlight of the evening.

I chose to sample the margherita pizza, which was a traditional choice, tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil - this was ultimately very rewarding.

R32;We decided we must indulge in dessert, so I chose the crème brûlée with textures of white chocolate, and my partner went for Rosso’s tiramisu, which is made fresh each day. The quality of ingredients was evident in these desserts and, in fact, throughout the entire meal.

We were, once again, very impressed by Rosso, and certainly recommend that you pay a visit when you’re next in the area. We remain adoring of this wonderful restaurant.R32;
