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 really enjoyed my dinner and experience here. They have good sized sharable options at fair prices. I came to celebrate mine and my friend's birthdays. We had their fingerling potatoes, vegan pizza, and a mixed baby lettuce salad. I can't eat dairy, so they accommodated putting cheese on the side for the items that came with it. It was all delicious. We also had their vodka cocktail which was good and refreshing. The drinks were average prices. I really appreciated their great service. The staff was very attentive and incredibly courteous. I'm in crutches, and they were very helpful in finding comfortable seating for me. They even had a birthday card ready for us at the start of our dinner, and a birthday dessert for each of us at the end of our meal. They really made sure we enjoyed our birthday celebratory dinner.

    Rossoblu has been a favorite of ours for many years, but last night was a standout experience. We had an online reservation for 8:45, but when we called, the host was really helpful, and found us an outdoor table for 7:15 instead - on a Saturday, no less! The service was equally excellent, our dinner was delicious - handmade pastas and seasonal risottos are always great, as is the fritto misto, and the wonderful tiramisu. Outstanding value for the money, and a wonderful place to celebrate!

    Let’s just say briefly that it’s a “Italian restaurant” without Italian taste to it or any flavors for that matter. I’m honestly shocked by the amount of good reviews about the food, since it’s just flavorless. We ordered quite a few things and the only thing that was good there was olives😅 The pizza was really bad. Not worth going there. Would never go back.

    Loved our energetic (but not too peppy) server. She made some great recommendations and one not so much. Also, we ordered the Holstein NY steak. It was a bad cut and cooked to medium when we asked for medium rare. It also had quite a bit of gristle; def do NOT order. Otherwise, it’s a $78 mistake (after tax, sec charge cannot go wrong there. Great for groups. Fun vibe.

    The question is “help diners decide what to eat”. Our experience - anything, everything and explore the menu. More specifically, and this does not include everything we ordered, the pork chop for two was perfectly cooked. The Maltagliati was delicious. The Salami Honey pizza tasted great. Fortunately, there were 4 of us so could share and there was plenty to take home. My only regret - first time at Rossoblu but certainly not the last.

    I was disappointed to see the host and hostess, who were disengaged and barely acknowledged us (guests). I noticed this with not only with our group but the groups that checked in after us. Their demeanor made it feel like we were not welcomed at the restaurant. The server was better in displaying good energy and checking in with us regularly to make sure everything was okay. The food felt overpriced and the past slightly over-seasoned (salty). The ambiance is young, hip and energetic.

    RossobluResponded 4 days ago

    Richard, I"m really disappointed that this was your experience. I'm incredibly proud of the young folks who are joining the hospitality industry at our company. They are passionate, earnest and learning a demanding skill set under a lot of pressure. So much talent has left this industry. I'm grateful for the new energy. I'm sorry we missed the mark with you and we deeply appreciate the feedback. We'll take this as a teachable moment for our young team. Kindest regards, Hans

We had a lovely server (I do not remember her name because I am getting old not because she was not memorable) and she could not have been more attentive, helpful and friendly. We ordered Funghi Pizza, Tuna Tartare, Green Salad, eggplant and Tagliatelle with ragu. It was fantastic! No misses. The support staff was also great and very friendly. Fantastic Sunday dinner.

    The waitress was superb. She is from Minnesota, blond, blue eyes - forgot her name. She is at the top of her game. Articulate, friendly, water glasses filled, there when you were running low on a negroni, helpful choice recommendations, not pushy, and unobtrusive. This wasn’t the snooty, “I’m doing you a favor” attitude of an aspiring LA actress waiting tables. Very impressed and can understand why you went all the way to Minnesota to recruit her. Superb tagliatelle can be ruined by the wrong help. Keep her engaged and with you.
