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.

A completely perfect visit to Rossoblu. Our server was on top of things, the food came out on time and the quality was impeccable.

ambiance at first sight is nice. Wine was good. The food lacked in flavor and had no wow factor that impressed our palate. After our plates were taken we had to ask for someone to wipe down the table of food that was clearly left in plain sight. We were sitting in the enclosed outdoor patio and observed many rats scurrying to the tables and then back away in hidden. There's also a 4% service charge added to the bill so the company can provide health benefits for the kitchen staff. Discharge is part of running a business and should not have to be an additional service charge for every meal so the company that has such high-end margins and pay their employees properly. Overall we probably would never go back when analyzing the cost versus the product

Food, service and ambiance are always outstanding at Rossoblu, as are the choices of wine. We brought friends from Orange County who were particularly impressed with the whole baked orata and olive oil cake. Standouts for me were the seafood fritto misto and the fazzoletti stuffed with duck, as well as the extremely delicious tiramisu. We look forward to dining with you again!

Area is run down but restaurant has valet. Lively and good crowd! Service was great and food was delicious but not exceptional. Ribeye was good but I have had better. Cauliflower was delicious! Eggplant was very good and felt like I was eating pasta how it was presented! Ricotta pasta dish was very good. Nothing over the top but worthy of a visit!

Food was okay. Wine was bad. Service was good. Ambiance was good.
I think, the restaurant should hire multiple security guards with the amount of homeless people that has surrounded the restaurant.

Great food, great service (friendly and fast), and they were able to accommodate us when we wanted to eat half an hour earlier. Plus they brought out a candle since I made a note on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday!

Not for those who are not into city life realities of LA 2021 as it is surrounded by homeless camps via fashion district area , but .... the food is top shelf, the service is what you would expect from a first class establishment. Do not make the mistake of going to the restaurant on the left side facing from the street upon entrance. Look right.

The food is family style and meant to be shared.

Reservation system is the best user experience so far you can pick indoor or outdoor dining, # of people, and time. It is a little weird when you are trying to modify a reservation, but not a big issue...

4 of us went to dinner. We got different items consisting of 2 pizzas, 2 antipastas, 2 mains (whole fish and mixed grilled meats), 1 noodle dish and few drinks. Cocktails seem to be a miss. Get wine or neat spirit as the recommendations based on your taste was on point .

The item we all loved was pizza- salami with honey (salty, sweet, spicy, crunch). Also, there was another order of this pizza be taken home.

Noodle plate is medium size. Noodles are al dente, in case you like it cooked more. If sharing among 4 people, it is about a bite and half for each person.

We skipped dessert here as nothing really screamed out to us to get it.

Delicious food, with good pacing and solid service. My main complaint is that it's really dark inside. Even the thirtysomethings had to turn on their phone lights! We didn't see how beautiful the multi-colored cauliflower was until we had it for leftovers the next day.

Incredible place! Highly recommend for events/larger dinners. They made accommodations for our large party and it was well-loved by everyone. Huge, well-heated, covered and aesthetically pleasing patio and inside looked very nice as well. The appetizers, pasta, mains, drinks, and desserts were all incredible. Can't recommend highly enough!

Bolognese and steak were very good. Cauliflower mash needed a bit more seasoning. And I’d skip the prosciutto antipasti next time. Ambiance was nice. A bit cold with the open air concept. Drinks were ok.

We met friends for dinner at Rossoblu on a Saturday night at 6pm. We were seated promptly without our friends having arrived which my husband and I appreciated very much. We hate having to wait until the entire party is present to be seated as sometimes people are late. We were greeted immediately by the head waiter and our waiter where we ordered wine and a bread plate. Everything came quickly and was served courteously. once our friends arrived, they too were greeted quickly and our fun filled and delicious evening went into full swing. Our waiter, Johnny, was fantastic and we allowed him to make all of our dining decisions for us. Once given the okay, the dishes quickly arrived and were ALL delicious. The pacing was perfect and we all left Rossoblu with full tummies and smiles for the perfect dining experience. Thank you for a great time!

Food is subpar, over priced for quality. Definitely not a fancy restaurant. Second time coming here, wanted to give it a second chance. Server had no personality, when asked questions he was so dry and nonchalant. Not high end dining for sure ! Perhaps taking a lesson or two d from DAMA would help them.

Outdoor seating on the patio is lovely. Heat lamps made it extra cozy during chilly covid. And the meal and service was fine. Ordered pizza and appetizer and contorni but felt that we didn't experience the full Rossoblu especially since the pizza came from the kitchen at Superfine. Butr it was tasty.
