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.

    Nice experience - nice decor with high ceilings, friendly and attentive staff, good food - my favorite was the prosciutto and melon, which can be a boring dish but theirs was great, although the other dishes didn’t wow me. Pasta wait time was a bit long. Overall I would go back / recommend.

    What a wonderful experience. 5 stars in every category! Starting from the ambience. Then meticulous staff. Everyone so nice and knew there stuff. Then the food. I'm not an eggplant person..but I loved it. The octopus pasta was delicious and the hanger steak was better than any filet mignon from other restaurants...Then they had a nice selection of Italian wines and made one delicious cocktail for my hubby. We will most definitely return when in downtown LA.

    The reason for the low marks in the ambiance and "energetic level" for music is b/c the restaurant next door was playing very loud music and it was disruptive for what I consider to be a fine-dining experience. We love this place and this was our 4th visit. The food is always great and the service is spectacular. But the music level was not well received and made the experience not so great unfort. I was told that the rest next door has been asked many times to turn their music down but that they refuse. Seems un-neighborly and not very business-like. Shame.

    The service was horrible. The waiter got our wine orders wrong several times. Actually 4 times. We had to find our waiter to get the wine after it was ordered. Food was served at different times - 4 guest gif their entries while 2 guests had to wait. The worst experience I have had in a long time. It seemed that the auteurs really just did not care when you provided any feedback or had a request. I felt embarrassed because I brought my work colleagues to the restaurant.

    Rossoblu is everything you want from a night out-great service, wonderful food, relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed every moment. Starting with a couple of pizzas, then on to a selection of starters to share, the pastas and hanger steak entrees we would recommend. If you still have room the desserts are delicious. It was fun to go with a group and try my several bites of everything. I could also see stopping in on a weeknight for pizza and some wine. Looking forward to next time.

    We ALWAYS enjoy our meals at Rossoblu from their innovative cocktails (especially last evening) to the amazing first course and salads, risotto, ribeye, calamari, fries (to die for) and wine list. Exceptional in every way, we had Music Center tickets and our wait staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Can’t wait until next time! Thank you Beth and Craig❤️

We were greeted by incredible food and staff. We’ll be back some day on another vacation. We highly recommend others to enjoy the wonderful dining experience. Thank you Rossoblu for making the last night of our honeymoon something so special!

    We had a very pleasant evening with friends. The service was excellent, the ambiance very nice. The pasta dish was quite good, the skirt steaks were good but not on the same level as the rest of the meal. The eggplant appetizer was stellar. We'll be back, it's a nice evening.

    I wanted to love the restaurant. The fristo dish was bland. The broth for the dumplings was not flavorful. The bread, however, was amazing, as we our drinks. The pasta with octopus was bland. The dishes were just missing something.

    the grilled pork chop with home made sausage is fantastic. However, this time they served it with peaches and a corn polenta which made it even better. This is one of the best dishes that I've had. We enjoyed the green bean salad with figs and the crudo. Stella, our sever, was friendly. helpful and attentive.

    Food was good but you can find good, fresh pasta anywhere. Had the dry aged tuna tar tar and seafood frito misto. Both were good but again, nothing that blew my socks off. For the price of these dishes I would rather go to Bestia or Mozza for better Italian.

    The service was great! Our waiter was attentive and the dishes were cleaned off as soon as the food was done. Water was quickly filled and drinks were timely. All the food tasted great. The meatballs were moist, the green bean salad was fresh, the pasta was seasoned well , the fries were perfectly crisp, and the olive oil cake was the best I’ve had in awhile. The only dish that I wouldn’t order again was the pizza because I felt like it wasn’t crispy enough but that is a personal preference. I will definitely be going back.

    Went for a pre-theater dinner. The outdoor dining is lovely and feels COVID safe (although most wait staff were not wearing masks). The staff was friendly and attentive (we were there early so there were more staff than customers at the time). The food was really hit or miss. We had a salad that was so overdressed with a heavy dressing that it was hard to eat, the bread basket had an anchovy butter that was the highlight of the entire meal but the other two dips were meh and we ended up asking for plain butter instead of finishing them. The pasta course was lovely (if a bit heavy) and the fritto misto was fine. I’d go back but I’d be very selective in my ordering as I don’t think everything holds up to the fine dining experience.
