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.

The food is consistently wonderful here, and is vegan friendly. The bread is warm and fresh, and the wine selection is quite suitable for any palette. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, with just the right amount of presence. The perfect spot for dinner in LA.

Serivine was excellent. The food was not so. Everything was salty. Best part of our meal was the pizza which I think they outsource from Superfine Pizza next door.

Everyone is very welcoming and courteous. The added patio space is even nicer to dine than indoors IMO. Food came at right time intervals. Not too quickly nor too long of wait, enough time for a break and then wouldn’t leave you wondering when is the next dish coming. They change your dish for each dish that arrives. I love not mixing flavors on the dish this way.
Everything is different and special. Very flavorful dishes. My mom absolutely loves everything. My palette can use a little less seasoning but none the less great and tasty.
I wish I had space to try the gooey cake coz it sounds delish. I’ll be back for sure to try other things on menu

Second time my wife and I have visited, and both times were fantastic. Was greeted immediately and seated promptly (we had reservations) Our waiter was very helpful in describing the dishes. He not only had a mask but a face shield as well. All the tables were spaced at least six feet apart. Without going into a long winded explanation of everything we ate, everything was delicious. We had soup, salad two kinds of pasta and a incredible Brown butter gooey cake. Everything was excellent. With all the pasta being freshly made I don't think you could go wrong ordering any of the pasta dishes.
An excellent Mother's Day meal.

While the food was very good (down from excellent the last time we dined there) and the service was acceptable (not as good as last time), the ambiance of pre-covid was totally absent. Spacing of patrons not withstanding ( they have no control of that) one felt as of one was in a repurposed warehouse . Music was questionable for a high end restaurant ,would have expected something more inviting that heavy bass line.
Overall it felt that they had not found their ‘groove’ as if they had just opened up rather than re-opened. Yes we will return , in a while to see if there was any i improvement..

Food was excellent. Wait staff was pleasant and gracious. Our table was spotless and bussers made efforts to wipe down our spaces during quiet moments in the meal.
Also, after over a year without eating out, I just miss a damn good cocktail!

I mean everything was bland did not like the food at all and corn tequila was disgusting. Bread wish it was crunchy and not soft and they added too much sea salt on the top which made the bread taste nasty and needed water to swallow it down food needed salt portions were good though not too stiff at the end.

We come here as frequently as possible (at least monthly but usually 2 or 3 times a month), which is a lot less frequent since we entered the COVID world of WFH. That said we will make the 30-45 min drive to Rossoblu from the South Bay because this place never disappoints... takeout included. I could go through what we have but quite honestly it doesn’t matter what you order here, because it’s ALWAYS great. Service is wonderful and Hans, the manager, does such a great job making sure things run smoothly. We will continue coming back here as long as things continue to be great.

BTW, order a takeaway pizza kit from Rossoblu to make the following day, it’s from next door and will not disappoint.

Everything about our dining experience at Rossoblu Wednesday was superb. Elizabeth took great care of us, from decanting our Chianti (great price) to her recommendations. The tomahawk pork chop is simply incomparable. The best tasting, juiciest and tender chop I have ever eaten. The tagliatelle bolognese was delicious as was the tortellini soup my wife had. Finished it all with tiramisu, which was awesome and 5 kinds of gelato and sorbet. Eating outdoors under their beautiful tent with overhead heaters to keep us comfortable made this night unforgettable.

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

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!
