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.

    I had never eaten at Rossoblu, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was amazing. We had a beautiful table on the outdoor mezzanine patio. We started with a delicious little gem salad with a green goddess dressing. It was so fresh and light. It was a huge portion. We were two people but it could have been shared with three. We also started with the roasted yukon gold potatoes. They were yummy and unique with a balsamic glaze. Then we shared two pastas. One with mushrooms that was devine and one with a duck ragu that was amazing. Both with fresh housemade pasta which was wonderful. The dessert menu looked fantastic, but we didn’t have any room. Great attentive and professional service. Lovely outdoor atmosphere. Valet parking 🅿️ only. I highly recommend.

    We were pleasantly surprised when we drove up to a sketchy area and there was this incredible restaurant. It’s in a warehouse so it’s quite noisy…the waitress couldn’t even hear us but that didn’t stop us. From the very first bite of the gem salad to the delectable beet risotto to the ragu pasta to the incredible pork meatballs to the pork roast with sausage and grilled onions along with orange olive oil Cake with rosemary infused whipped cream. Every bite was an exciting taste of flavors. We highly recommend Rossoblu and was delighted with our concierge from the Conrad Hotel’s suggestion.

    The restaurant tries to please, but it fails in a painful way. It was recommended to me by friends as "an up and comer." Unfortunately, I won't be returning -- not worthy of any Michelin acclaim. The food is good, but the overall experience is very "ordinary." Service is raw and lacking in passion. If you like a loud and chaotic scene, this is your place.

    The Kitchen experienced a vapor lock on performance. The Duck was okay not sensational. For a Saturday evening the Wait Staff did the best they could Hard to explain the issues with the Kitchen. Patronage appeared to be off from previous years. Wishing the Best in the future moving forward. Questionable if I’ll return.

    Another memorable dining experience at Rossoblu! Everything was delicious, showing the culinary skill of the talented kitchen staff. The blistered green beans with a rich soffrito were perfectly crisp tender. The housemade pastas were al dente served with beautiful sauces. The wine list, focused on Italian varietals paired well with each dish. Service, as always, was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. It is always a pleasure to dine at Rossoblu and I look forward to returning as soon as possible.

It was great, exactly what we needed our group of seven unanimously stated that this was the best meal they’ve had all year, even though some of them have been there before they said, this was the best they’ve ever had Chloe our server was also super helpful and really accommodating . We hope we can come back soon although it wasn’t cheap it was worth every dollar, nothing but quality.
