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.

Food is always reliably very. I especially love the new vegetarian pizza.

They have a new outdoor enclosure which is nice but doesn’t compare to the beauty of the indoor space which I hope will open soon.

Rossobleu has always been one of our fav restaurants and remains so as pandemic nears its end. Protocols very safe, clean. Space (mostly outside, but weather-protected), is very pleasant. And the staff is friendly, professional, glad we were there. Food continues excellent! Pizza is fabulous; Spring risotto especially is divine— bright, light, mildly decadent

Food wasn't as good as I had anticipated. I got the meat ball, one of the pastas, and the bread basket. For the price and the restaurant being Michelin 1 star, I had a decent amount of expectations but it just wasn't quite that good.

The food. IS SO GOOD! We ordered 7+ items—not a weak link among them. Our favorite was the shrimp pasta and tagliatelle bolognese...omg. But everything was delicious: blistered sugar snap peas, grilled whole fish, the Jonathan Gold (RIP) approved broth w. ricotta dumplings, vegan pizza that we un-veganed by adding cheese. Killer desserts and great cocktails and wine. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and her pacing was on point, steering us perfectly through our meal. Restaurant’s Covid protocols were perfectly executed but not obtrusive. We’ll be back!

We were very underwhelmed by the food at Rossoblu, especially after The Infatuation gave it a glowing review. I pulled out about 4 tiny rabbit bones from my tagliatelle... almost every bite of it had a bone in it... and the white fish was bad. We were bummed!

Very good food. We liked the eggplant appetizer and loved the cauliflower appetizer. The tomato sauce for the tortelloni was absolutely superb. If I could buy a jar, I would have. The sage /brown butter pasta was perfectly done, but a little sweet. The only detractors, though significant, is that they seem to "nickel and dime" you. $30+ entrees but they charge $9 for a bread basket. I believe that should be gratis. They also add a 4% surcharge, to "provide benefits for employees." Isn't that part of their business expenses? Still great food. I would go again, or recommend it.

This has been a favorite restaurant of mine for a couple of years now so I’ve made it a point to go here whenever the stay at home orders have been lifted. I think they still knock it out of the park! The food quality and excellent service have stayed the same while they adhere to all safety protocols. The outdoor space is so pleasant though I do miss the inside of the restaurant. But one day we’ll be back there. Highly recommend Rossoblu any time.

One of the best patios in LA. Exceptional food, service and ambience. The aged prosciutto with fried bread was heavenly. The seafood pasta was perfect and our grilled tomahawk pork chop was smoky, crispy and juicy. It was the perfect way to return to LA dining. Looking forward to return visits as we continue into spring.

The food was absolutely fabulous and we look forward to going again.
The service was wonderful. Our waiter was very attentive, shared useful suggestions and was so pleasant.
We were seated outside in a very large and airy tent-like space. Our table was exceedingly quiet and far away from others so it was easy to talk. It couldn't have been a better space. In these days of COVID it was perfect.
The owner/manager checked in on us. We felt so welcomed.
We celebrated a Birthday - It couldn't have been a better evening!

This was our first dinner out since the pandemic hit. It is sad to see how few people can be accommodated with social distancing. Rossoblu has put up a giant tent over their outdoor seating area, and it is very comfortable with heaters to help with the nighttime chill. The folks at Rossoblu provided the same wonderful service we remembered, and the food continues to deliver the impeccable standards that have spoiled us since inception. We thank Rossoblu for continuing to delight us over the past year, and we hope they will be able to re-open fully soon so that more people will fill their beautiful space.

The outdoor dining experience at Rossoblu could not have been better. Susannah, our server, took great care of us. We ordered tortellini soup, a seasonal salad and a tomahawk pork chop with chocolate gelato for dessert. Also, we ordered a nicely priced Chianti Classico Reserva. Everything was superbly presented and the flavors and taste of the food ensures we will be returning soon. The ambiance created by the large tent, lights and heaters keeping us comfortable made it all very special.

Good experience. My dining partner couldn’t make it so I decided to go alone. Tagliolini was great, snap peas so so. My first drink. The vezsuvio was great but then I had a grapefruit cocktail that I didn’t like. Good service.
