Rossoblu celebrates chef Steve Samson’s two home cities, Los Angeles and Bologna, Italy. The menu features house made salumi, soulful pastas, market produce, and wood grilled fish and meats.

Located in downtown’s City Market South, the site of Los Angeles’s original produce market, Rossoblu’s vaulted dining room and open kitchen create a festive dining environment. The restaurant’s private outdoor piazza allows al fresco diners to feel far removed from the nearby city bustle. An intimate basement wine cellar can be reserved for private parties.

Everything and everyone was great, my only complaint was that some of the dishes were a little salty for me, but still edible, other than that, I strongly recommend it.

Some of the food was bland. Namely, the Pork Milanese special that night. It was dry and completely underseasoned.

Sous-chef Ede Ravich is an absolute genius! I took my wife to Rossoblu for her birthday and we loved every single dish that came out of the kitchen.

My recommendation - I would run, not walk to this restaurant.

The food, ambience and wine are above all delish expectations. Dina and Steve have designed an amazing dining experience. The menu and style of Italian dishes is reminiscent of his grandmother’s food from Bologna. Also Hans the general manager, has added a level of grace and compassion to your dining experience. His memory is impeccable on an individual’s special needs. This is literally one of my favorite places to dine in Los Angeles. I have a few more and when I get there you will hear about them .. until then 🙏🏽 enjoy and be safe

I wanted to love this place.. the location is questionable and the valet is even worse. They almost crashed a car into mine right after we tipped them. The food was nothing to go out of your way for, especially with so many better options in LA. $30 for a little bowl of pasta that's half good... won't be back.

Excellent food. Service very good except on occasion it took too long to get someone's attention or to get more iced tea. Corkage $30 which IMHO is too much but not really out of line with other restaurants of this quality. And again, while not out of line with other restaurants, it was too noisy, mostly because they were playing background music at too high a volume.

An all around excellent and authentic first rate dining experience. Every part of the meal was enjoyable. The internal space in nicely designed and very functional/user-friendly especially during Covid. If you are, however, hard of hearing, there may be an issue if crowded due to elevated background noise.

First time, it was a recommendation from a friend. We went for our anniversary. We sat inside, the service was good, food was just ok. $20 for sparkling water when the bill is already $200+ seems a little annoying when they seat you asking "still or sparkling"

Rossoblu has it dialed in. The outdoor seating under a huge tent, gas heaters if needed and attentive servers and staff made it so relaxing and enjoyable. The dishes, as usual, were prepared to perfection and delicious. Love their specialty cocktails, too! Cameron’s Kick is genius.

The food was excellent but the service was incredible. Our waiter was perfect and went above and beyond. He overheard us ask the hostess about a dessert and asked about it in the back first. That alone was an incredible gesture and luckily they had one more! He really finished the dinner strong for us

They ran out of their tagliatelle. How did they get a mention from Michelin? Somethings can pit be explained. Provable, hopefully, recovering from the closures.

Service was very slow, felt like we were being ignored for a while. One in our party was not serve their meal until 15 minutes after the others. It definitely felt like they were doing us a favor. We have had other excellent experience is here and we’re very disappointed
