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.

    Trying Rossoblu for the first time, we cannot say enough about the wonderful service we received from Colin S. His recommendations regarding drinks and food were spot on and we couldn’t have asked for better service. Aside from the cocktails (Caesars Peach and Hugo Rosso) , we started with a Queen Margherita Pizza, Bread Basket (honestly skip this to save room for everything else), and Heirloom Tomato Salad. Main entrees of Tortelloni (very tasty and LARGE), Sweet Corn Risotto (super tasty and sweet - best to share), Short Rib Agnolotti (good but would have preferred it was less dry), and Olympia’s Taglatelli. Sharing between the four of us, we had more than eat. Topping off the meal with shared desserts, Panna Cotta and Pistachio Bombolinis we were stuffed and happy!

    The food was very disappointing, the corn risotto was very similar to baby porridge. The day before we were in a michelin restaurant and paid the same amount but the food was better!!! Very disappointed with Rossoblu

    Daughter warned us that it was a bad area and should have listened. Parked car out front on the street 100 ft from the valet and had a rear window smashed and shoes stolen. Valet said they didn't hear or see anything but did say that it happens EVERYDAY there, lol! Porsche down the street also got its window smashed. If you must go, use the valet or Uber, and I am not even sure where the valet parks the cars. Otherwise, food and vibe were good. Pricey for dinner and drinks. They also tacked on a 4% "surcharge", although our tab for 3 people was already over $250. 5 drinks alone were close to $100. Bartender was fun and cool. Waiter was a bit disinterested/jaded. If you must go, try the Agnolotti. Most everything was good, although the women thought the pastas were a bit undercooked/chewy. Won't be back due to lack of security, price and ambivalence of the waiter. Expensive night with tacking on a few extra hundred for replacement car window and shoes on top of the cost of the drinks and meal. Definitely either valet and hope or Uber if you must go.

    My first time...food, drinks and service were excellent but I felt it was very overpriced for the portion sizes! Server recommended wines but didn't tell us price/glass so I was a little shocked at the price when the bill came...$28/$30 for a glass of Chianti/Pinot. Then the extra charge for wages or whatever was surprising too. Won't go back soon as I felt ripped off.

We brought friends with us and as first time diners they vowed to return after such a wonderful meal!

    The food was good, but not spectacular. The eggplant appetizer, green bean salad and the corn risotto were the highlights. The service felt like they were rushing us. The first appetizer came quickly which was fine, but then the next two arrived a few minutes later. Perhaps if we were a larger party, we were just two, it would have been okay. Same thing with the pastas; one arrived then moments later the next one.

    The prosciutto appetizer was delicious served with sweet melon and these awesome little biscuits. The meatballs were very good and the Agnolotti was one of the best pastas I've had in a while. Pizza was nice, very good pizza dough but the pepperoni was nothing special. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Every recommendation he made was spot on.
