    Was staying in a local hotel and in-house menu didn't appeal so went to Rossi's. Food superb and cost no different from hotel menu. Great decision!

    Excellent food and service, very enjoyable. Will certainly pay another visit to try the very extensive menu at Rossi's.

    On arrival we were greeted and made to feel welcome. We were shown to our table and menus presented. Including the specials. Lots to choose from!
    The meal was well presented, fresh and flavoursome. (Hot food was hot and cold food was cold - just as it should be!)
    We ate different dishes and nothing was at fault. Even the cabbage tasted amazing (I don't like cabbage generally).
    Highly recommended, we will visit Rossi's again.
    Thanks to all staff, waiters and waitresses, chefs and doorman.

    Lovely meal, lovely service, great atmosphere at Rossi's. I will be returning again.

    Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed the meal at Rossi's and the service was good! ****

    First time in Rossi's, can't wait to go again. Lovely place, and fantastic food.

    Gorgeous everything as always but we went in a bigger party this time and sounds silly but we were on different raffia type bistro chairs which were extremely uncomfortable all night and table was too small for our party very cramped.

    Delicious food, great service relaxed and unrushed. Thank you. Can't wait for next time.

    Food, service and presentation was excellent at Rossi's, the only gripe was that it is very cold when someone opens the main door, may want to look at fitting an internal door to keep the heat in

    The food was excellent, everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were of a good size the chocolate pancakes were huge and had to be shared. All courses tasted homemade and prices were reasonable. Definitely return!

    Amazing meal at Rossi's, very authentic Italian feel to the decor which is quirky but nice. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you, even customizing our Lasagne to our individual preferences. The bread and oil is the best I have ever had...even in Italy!!! Thank you for a lovely, lovely evening Rossi's xx

    Fantastic meal, excellent service. Highly recommend Rossi's.

    Great Food & value for money as usual at Rossi's. Attentive staff without being too much in your face!

    Great service very helpful and friendly in a buzzing atmosphere. A delicious meal that is very good value for money.

    Found booking and getting the discount helpful and easy. The table was ready at 7 when we arrived and by 8pm the place was full with a great atmosphere. The service was really good with the menu explained. Four of us had steak and they were excellent. The only critique would be the cauliflower needed a few more minutes and the chocolate cheesecake needed more base, but these are just small things. Food, service and décor are excellent and with good value for money we will return and recommend.

    Made to feel very welcome, pre-booked table which is essential. Food wonderful and overall our daughters birthday was made to feel very special by the staff.

    7 years since our last visit and i was a little dubious but the food was excellent and service very good not very busy but it was only thursday evening, very good.

    Welcomed in by the doorman, and sat in the beautiful restaurant with a number of other diners. Had a fab time, thank you!

We say…

Situated just off London Road, Rossi’s Italian restaurant has been serving top-class Italian cuisine for over 28 years. Housed within a beautiful old bank, Rossi’s is one of Sheffield’s most breath-taking restaurants, complete with marble pillars and mosaic floor tiles. The building features plenty of pieces that allude to the Renaissance art theme: even the ceiling has been painstakingly decorated with a beautifully intricate collection of paintings that have been specially commissioned by Vito, the restaurant proprietor.

As an Italian national, Vito and his father brought their love of Italian cuisine and dining etiquette with them to Sheffield. Using generations of home-grown cooking knowledge, Rossi’s has established a huge fan base of local diners who flock to the restaurant week in, week out.

Diners are welcomed by a smartly-dressed doorman in the evenings, from Thursday to Saturday, who will look after your vehicle whilst you dine. This fantastic touch of hospitality really adds a special touch to your dining experience: you may find yourself feeling like a celebrity! When seated you'll probably find yourself slightly distracted from the menu; the magnificent ceiling and the replica of Michelangelo’s David are sure to momentarily hold your attention, but trust us when we say that the menu is equally as exciting as the décor.

The menu changes with the seasons and takes influence from the Basilicata and Campania regions of Italy. To start, try a rocket, red onion, cherry tomato, walnut and pear salad; deep fried baby squid served with a continental salad; or our favourite, gamberoni carindale, fresh king prawns cooked in tomatoes, garlic, white wine, lemon and parsley. A great range of reasonably priced pizzas and pastas are also available, but the best dishes are to be found within the pollo, carne and pesce sections. Our favourites include the filetto al pepe verde: fillet steak cooked in a red wine cream and brandy sauce with green peppercorns, plus the pollo diana: chicken breast in mushrooms, French mustard, white wine, cream and brandy .

Rossi’s Italian in Sheffield is a truly stunning restaurant that adds a touch of Hollywood glamour to any occasion. Surprise a loved one with a romantic meal or host a special occasion for friends and family: whatever you decide to do at Rossi’s, you can guarantee that your night will be the centrepiece of conversation for weeks to come.
