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.

Outdoor patio was very nice. Staff was attentive. We ordered *almost* everything on the menu and were disappointed at most, meh at some, impressed by few. The bread with the spreads, seafood misto, and maltagliati pasta were all Overwhelmingly salty (and I tend to like salty). The snapper was fishy but the potatoes it came with were delicious. The New York steak was ordered medium but came very rare. The chicken had good flavor but was a bit rubbery. The stuffed squashini and the grilled house sausage were a complete waste of money. The highlights were the tuna tartare and the tortellini. Also the apple tart and the panda cotta were delish. Would not return here except maybe for drinks.

Our waiter was the best! I forgot her name but she recommended a really good cocktail with tequila and watermelon to my friend. She was energetic and my table had good conversation with her. There was also this other waiter who brought us this delicious eggplant dish because we were served the wrong salad. He didn’t have to do that but it was a very nice gesture! Thanks for the great service and great food. Highly recommend.

The place had a nice charm or vibe to it and overall had a good time. The food itself wasn’t anything amazing and was good. The reason for 3 stars is the price for the food. I could’ve gone to eataly and paid about the same amount for better tasting food. Also note that this restaurant charges a 4% fee so the employer can pay healthcare for his back of house employees.. correction, you are paying for their benefits.

Rossoblu is a little oasis in the heart of Downtown LA, just a magical night under the patio lights, beautiful warm weather and just the perfect dinner to end a long work week. We could not asked for a better evening.

When it comes to a meal that I am spending $200+ dollars for, I expect great service. We ended up having to move our appetizer plates to another table to make room for the entrees they simply placed on the corner of our table and walked away.

Our entrees were lack luster as well. The lamb chops were grilled but lacked much flavor at all. The Tortellini and sacchetto in brodo was beyond al dente and raw. And we like our pasta al dente. We boxed up our own leftovers as well. Just not what I was expecting at all from a restaurant with such incredible reviews and accolades.

Celebrated me and my friends birthday ( born on same day) and had a wonderful experience.
We felt comfortable , our server (skyler or Tyler ? ) was very knowledgeable and so enthusiastic, made us want to order everything!
And everything was beautiful to look at and definitely delivered on the flavor!
If I had to say I had a least it was the tomato salad/side dish . The overall flavor was good, but they were a bit mealy. I guess I was really hoping the restaurant had a hold of some late summer tomato, but I guess I have to accept they’re done for the season.
Love that the pizza made an appearance ! Brought me back to Sotto

Bread was very tasty although pasta dishes were a bit heavy handed and the milk braised pork ribs were burnt and a little bit dry. Excellent service and a ton of space for proper social distancing.

I’ve dined at Rossoblu before, and it has retained its exceptional quality in the design, flavor and presentation of its cuisine, as well as its top flight service and style. Of course, inside dining is not available now, and we missed the trendy decor, but the outside patio was pleasant enough.

Before covid I loved this place, but during covid and having to dine al fresco, there are two or three places I eat where I know the food is amazing, service is second to none, and I feel safe...Rossoblu is one of those places. My love and appreciation for it has grown even more than before.

You need to disclose your surcharges. I didn't see them until I had paid my bill and my server certainly didn't mention it. That kind of stuff is annoying when you have a $930 bill as I did that evening. I could have adjusted my $150 tip had I known.
