Rustic, hearty dishes for Italian winter dining

Published on October 27th 2014.

Gorgeous New Lunch Menu At Rosso


HERE'S a new lunch menu that's worth making time in your day to try. Rosso Restaurant's seasonal selection of rustic, hearty dishes is packed with succulent meats, fresh seafood, warm roasted nut salads and handmade pasta. And you can enjoy it at just £14.95 for two courses, with a bottle of wine for just £7.95.

It's excellent value considering the quality of the cooking and the pleasure of eating in this beautiful, grade II listed building

The menu features big, robust flavours that explore the best of Italian cuisine (and it's a tribute to Rosso's imagination that there's not a pizza in sight).


We've printed it in full below. Highlights in the starters include a trio of smoked fish pâtés with cucumber pickle, and a garlic bruschetta topped with pan-seared chicken liver.

The mains include a poached salmon fillet with glazed carrot and cucumber and hollandaise sauce, and a dish of thick pork sausage with spiced onions and tomato served over a white polenta.


Those with a lighter appetite can opt for the seasonal salad of roasted chestnut, marinated mushrooms, cold-water prawns and mixed leaves.

The £14.95 price is excellent value considering the quality of the cooking here and the pleasure of eating in this beautiful, grade II listed building. Next time you're looking for an extra special lunch without an extra special price tag, why not head to Rosso?

To make a reservation, call Rosso Restaurant on 0161 832 1400. Lunch is served Monday-Thursday, 12 noon-6pm and Friday-Sunday, 12 noon-4pm. Rosso is at 43 Spring Gardens, Manchester city centre. www.rossorestaurants.com
