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.

We ordered our food once seated. Two small plates arrived soon after. It then took literally 80 minutes to have our entrees brought out. At one point the waiter approached our table and asked us if we wanted dessert and was not even aware the entrees were not brought out. Over the next 40 minutes he came to our table repeatedly to tell us the there was a kitchen error and that our food would come out in 10 minutes. He was at least apologetic. We sat near the outside patio. Our table had been up some steps above the group of tables situated on the patio. It was next to an old warehouse and was dimly lit by a single light.

It was a great return to business dining at Rossoblu. The food is always been exceptional tonight was no exception. The meatballs, the zucchini, tortellini, chicken was all fantastic. The specialty cocktails were refreshing. The wait staff was truly exceptional. They kept on top of the umbrella to keep the sun out of our eyes. Pleasant, attentive, Accommodating. It was nice spending time leisurely having dinner over business. Love this place

Meatballs and eggplant dishes were the highlights, the bread is always worth the price of admission.

One of our top restaurants in DTLA and it still is despite the protocols and safety guidelines being utilized for obvious reasons. We felt very comfortable with how the seating and service was being handled. I read on a previous review that someone complained about no piped in music. This is irrelevant given that DAMA next door was playing music loud enough that it would have been redundant and unnecessary for Rossoblu to do the same. The menu, while limited, was still amazing and the cocktails are still divine. We will try the 7-course take out dinner next time because ... why not and it is such a deal.

We went there to celebrate a belated birthday. They have a large outdoor seating area that provides plenty of space between tables. Everything we ordered was great, but my go to item is the Apennine Fries - get them extra crispy! You won’t be disappointed!

Staff was friendly, professional, and practiced all the necessary precautions to keep us safe.

Food was delicious! We loved the outside seating! The Sommelier was knowledgeable and had great recommendations for bottles since we ordered 3. Our only complaint is the server/kitchen did NOT bring out the soups before the main dishes. The Sommelier was at the table and started taking care of it right away. This threw off the meal since the main dishes had to go back...and then fresh ones had to come out again after the soup. A dinner at this level, that should not happen. Overall a nice evening dining outside!

This place has been my favorite restaurant in LA ever since it showed up on the Jonathan Gold list (RIP). The food is simple but extremely delicious and flavorful. It's obviously comprised of very high-quality ingredients. The staff is extremely honest and friendly, and the chef has offered to share the recipes for the food, which I think speaks to the overall vibe that they're trying to create.

I understand that its difficult with the covid situation, but service was non existent and other than the pizza the rest of the meal wasn't very great.

It was a different experience than last time obviously because of the precautions that needs to take place with COVID19. But we felt safe and well taken care of. The service was excellent and the quality of the food was never compromised.

We were a party of four celebrating a bday. The food was delicious with the exception of the sausage and cheesecake. The ambiance was a bit lacking. Adding music in the background and candles or decorative lighting would have made it more pleasing while eating outside.

As always my husband and I enjoyed going to Rossoblu. During this time of Covid-19 , following the guidelines is a challenge for all restaurants..Rossoblu pulled it together and we had a wonderful time dining on the patio. The food, drinks and service were outstanding!

Food was fine. I think they're kinda cheap on portion sizes and extremely light on wine pours (for a $15 glass).
Better value at other restaurants but overall fine.
