Rosso says ?

The promise of a football-based celebrity sighting is a strong lure for customers at Rio Ferdinand’s Italian restaurant. Rosso has brought life to one of the city’s most imposing restaurant spaces: a former bank boasting marble columns and ornate domed ceilings. It’s unclear what the bankers of old would have made of the mirrored bar, but the menu isn’t difficult to fathom. The list kicks off with a range of bruschette, before antipasti such as calamari fritti or truffled polenta with artichoke and wild mushrooms, then salads, pastas, pizzas and mains. No wild claims towards authenticity are made, but the kitchen puts effort into dishes like hand-rolled strozzapreti with sardines, sultanas and toasted pine nuts or wild boar with spiced red cabbage and game ragu. Fun is the objective, helped by a fully-loaded bar – though an all-Italian wine list, including a 10-strong Prosecco selection, offers something for more serious drinkers.
