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.

The food was good, but we went early so we could see a show afterwards, and it was clear after we had our appetizer that the kitchen forgot about our main courses, and then had to scramble.

Italian food in a modern setting. The restaurant feels new and spacious. The food was absolutely amazing. I had pork chop and my husband had the short rib. Very well presented and good portions. They also have a great wine selection. Prices are on the higher side but worth it for a special night out. Would definitely recommend this place!

We sat on the tent covered patio. Very comfortable. Lots of heating devices if necessary. Our server suzannah was lovely and helpful. We ordered a number of dishes and ate family style. All were tasty. Wine list is not huge but sufficient and reasonable for la standards.

Location is dtla. We found street parking but there is also valet available. We ended with tiramisu which was phenomenal.

We will definitely go back.

Oh so good. Was pleasantly surprised by the more family style concept — it allowed us to try more dishes. Share a pizza with friends as an appetizer you won’t regret it. But the handmade pastas and short rib main were killer.

Third time back but service was just fair, main courses for the three of us came out one at a time and the last of the three was quite delayed. We had to ask for the final dish and it eventually got delivered with a light apology from the manager. The waiter seemed oblivious. No one offered us anything to compensate for the meals coming out, one by one and delayed for each! It was ridiculous and annoying to have a dinner delivered like that!

The food is delicious. We had 3 dishes, 2 glasses of wine, dessert and coffee which totaled $200. It was a great experience. Service a little slow but not too bad. Will definitely go back.

Everything was excellent, even the random earthquake that happened. Sat at the bar for the first time in ages. Bartender knew the menu inside and out. We got the meatballs, eggplant, and prosciutto w/melon. Steak and chicken as entrees, and blackberry sorbet and olive oil cake. Everything was terrific, happy to see things getting back to normal for these restaurants and their workers.

I just spent much of June in Italy primarily in Tuscany and Lombardy and the food was definitely missing that Michelin Bib quality. The Superfine pizza in the past has always been enjoyable but not last night. The eggplant appetizer was delicious. We also requested to be seated inside and initially got resistance from the female host even though there were plenty of available tables. Fortunately the very nice host gentleman was most gracious and seated us inside. He also came to check in on us during our meal which was very much appreciated.

Wish I could remember the waiters name! But from the in and out of this restaurant everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. It was my boyfriend and I first time coming to this restaurant and the waiter was always helpful, he made sure we were taken care of. The food was tasteful and delicious 🤤.

I'm not one to eat out much, but it was a special occasion. Hand-made pasta from an authentic Italian chef sounded like it was worth splurging for.

House-made focaccia, flavorful spreads, olive oil-soaked eggplant, and the pasta.. oh, the pasta.. they really packed the flavor in there. Also got a rum cocktail that was very fun & unique.

The inside of the building is beautiful: artwork, open kitchen, tall ceilings, brick fire oven.

The service was standard: they quickly became busy and the servers were not able to be as attentive, but our food came rather quickly.

Thanks to the whole team for your work!

We had an absolutely wonderful evening, beginning with a delicious small plate of the chef's mother's special eggplant dish, offered to us on the house. The starters included some of the most delicious bread I've had in ages, along with anchovy butter (equal billing here), and the maltagliati pasta and the striped bass main we shared were stellar. Foremost, perhaps, was the service, which was friendly, generous, timely -- in short, just lovely. I will be back many times, I hope.

The patio at Rossoblu is spacious and makes one feel completely safe and comfortable. The food is, as always, innovative and delicious. We especially enjoyed the tagliolini with rock shrimp, zucchini and chili, the hangar steak and pork chop Milanese. Imaginative wine list and great service. One of our fav's

This restaurant used to be one of our favorites in all of LA, but it has really declined from where it was two years ago. This is now a turn and burn high occupancy restaurant that is totally impersonal. I felt like we were in an airport restaurant, food was like a P.F. Chang’s or Cheesecake Factory.

This was my second time dining here. I love a restaurant that is consistently great, and this restaurant left an incredible first and second impression. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Even though it is an upscale restaurant, there is a modesty and warmth that invites guests to feel comfortable and at home. The food is comforting and delicious. The sweet corn risotto was my personal favorite dish.

Came here on a busy Friday evening for dinner. Highly recommend making a reservation in advance, especially during the weekend. The place fills up rather quickly. We ordered the salami and honey pizza, the seafood fritto misto, and a delicious pasta dish. Between the food and the cocktails, everything tasted fabulous. Service was prompt and professional, food was fresh, and the ambience was very warm. Our table had a great view of the downtown skyscrapers, which was a nice little surprise. The restaurant has convenient valet parking right in front of the property, but I have been able to find street parking close to the restaurant each time I have been. Overall, the food and experience was great. Highly recommend.
