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.

Always outstanding. The patio dining has been planned well...room between tables, good heating. Service, wine, menu and food are great. The only thing I don't love are the desserts right now (good not great) ...I remember them to be better pre-COVID...but if that's the only thing, it's a huge winner!

Rossoblu is ALWAYS great; but during COVID, they are just wonderful. Careful, safe, and of course, delicious!!! I was there recently outdoors during COVID with out the canopy, now there is an open canopy with heaters. And I am bringing a tight safe, small group here on December 6!

Everything about our dinner together and as superb! First, the welcome greeting. Second, the giant high-ceilinged tent - we were able to talk together in a normal tone of voice! Third, our very attentive and friendly service. Four, the warm acceptance of our well-behaved dog. Finally, the EXCEPTIONAL FOOD! One of us is vegan and ALL of us were thrilled😋!

Hans, Steve, and the team behind Rossoblu continue to make my wife and I feel so special. Johnny, our server did a beautiful job of coordinating the dishes so that they arrived within enough time to allow us to enjoy our meal. Alan made a delicious cocktail called the Golden Hour. And on a chili night like it was, the tortellini in brodo was the perfect warm-me-up. Oh, and the TENT! You really feel like you are dining in a five star, world class space. And with the pandemic going on, you couldn't feel safer and better taken care of. I hope Rossoblu stays around for years and years to come :)

Rossoblu is the best restaurant in LA, IMHO. The regular manager (so sorry I don't have his name at hand,) along with all of the staff, are superlative. The food is of the highest quality and almost entirely made in-house, the wine selections are thoughtful and creative and the space itself is, perhaps serendipitously, perfectly adapted to the requirements of Life in Pandemia. I (and my extended family of East-Coasters who spend lots of time in and/or are LA transplants) either dine at or order takeout from Rossoblu as often as possible.

These guys have created an amazing outdoor space. Dining here feels safe. Menu's are on your phone, servers wears masks and face shields, and yet the service is still warm and thoughtful. The food and service here are great as always. We love the tortellini and tortelloni and the seasonal salad is always creative and delicious.

We almost felt like this was a normal date night! The wait staff all have face masks and shields at all times. The tables are set up socially distanced outside with heat lamps. The courtyard now turned outdoor restaurant is beautiful. The food was delicious! We ordered the seasonal salad with roasted squash, pomegranate and greens; drunken octopus ragu chittara pasta; classic tagliatelle al ragu Bolognese, milk-braised pork short ribs; and frozen chocolate tart. Loved the food, the service and the al fresco dining!

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.
