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.

    Service was great. Our server was lovely, personable and understood the menu. The pizza and the focaccia were quite yummy, but the remainder of the food was pretty meh. The steak was served cold, the pasta was merely ok and the Brussel sprouts were seriously disappointing. We spent a lot of money, and, unfortunately, the food was definitely not up to par. They did seem to be having an event on the patio and perhaps that was the cause.

    Fantastic restaurant in DTLA. The staff could not be more accommodating and delightful. The owner of the restaurant is absolutely charming and very personable. The open kitchen concept is very nice and love that it gives this very authentic feeling of being part of the action. Great ambience and cuisine. Overall a solid 5* rating. Can't wait to return.

    I wanted to love this place again because I loved it the first time three years ago. Especially because I brought a friend who I really wanted for her to love it, too. The atmosphere was good but the music was wrong. The service started out great but went downhill from there. Having 20 minute intervals in between our appetizers, dinner, and waited another 20 minutes for them to pick up our plates after dinner so we passed on dessert. The meatballs were great and the chicken Al Mattone was good but they ruined the butternut squash risotto. It wasn't even cooked al dente, it was undercooked and still grainy. Super disappointed.

    Rossoblu never disappoints. It was New Year’s Eve, the place was packed but the food, service and ambiance were excellent. We shared the meatballs and prawn to start. Delicious! The entrees we ordered included succulent lamb shank and grilled trout. Wonderful!! A fine Prosecco with the meal topped it off. Eva’s cake was delicious, too!!

    One of my favorite places to go! Just a couple of things worth mentioning. The risotto was overcooked (is risotto, supposed to have crunchy grains in it? No) so we sent it back and ordered the Pappardelle. It was very flavorful but it was chewy like squid. The other dishes we had were perfect! Next time hopefully the pasta is cooked correctly.

    Patio dining is beautiful and even in chilly weather the space heaters keep you nice and warm. My mother is hard of hearing and outside seating is always preferable since it’s so much quieter. The food was well prepared with a few exceptions. The salad leaves were enormous and difficult to eat with a fork and the menu was very limited for vegetarians. However the service was fantastic!

    Of the 5 dishes we ordered, the server got 2 of them wrong. One of them was fixed, one was not as it took at least 20 minutes for the 2nd course to follow the first and we did not have time to wait for a new entree. The server simply dropped the wrong dish on our table and never returned for the rest of the meal. The manager came over to discuss the matter but only offered to not charge us for the menu items we did not order. For a relatively expensive restaurant this level of service was atrocious.

    RossobluResponded on December 24, 2022Hi there, we are so sorry about the negative experience you had while you were with us. I personally do remember your table and find it very regretful that we accidentally got the Sausage dish and the Sausage Rabe pizza confused. And the fact that you had to go to the theatre did not allow us to make it up in the way wee wished we could have. Thanks so much for coming in and we hope you have better luck elsewhere!

    I booked the outside table, but only inside or mezzanine were available as we arrived. We were the last guest to be seated. So, it seemed the food was rushing to our table as prepared with anybody but not our waiter. Too bad, it could be a great dinner without those negatives.

    Restaurant is gorgeous. Came on a Wednesday during the holidays right when they opened, only one other table was seated. Server seemed like she was rushed in taking our first course plates away, wanting to take them even before finished our appetizers. Pasta came out cold. Very disappointed. Over $145 for 2 people for cold food. Will not be returning.

    The food was fabulous from the starter dishes of tuna tartare to the huge ribeye. I shared the chicken dish with my friend and it was so moist and flavorful. Everything was cooked to perfection!

    The food is simply terrific. My first visit there I was treated to a very knowledgeable waiter who guided us as we shared some of the best offerings. On this second visit it seemed the service was a bit more hesitant and uncertain, perhaps she was new. Either way, it’s a terrific restaurant and well worth a visit.
