Let Rossoblu Take You To Italy, Now
cj.211.100The best food you can eat is at the place where the food originates from. Most of the time, that means you must travel to this location.

The next best possibility is to eat authentic food nearby.
Rossoblu takes you to Italy within one bite of their dishes. The décor is modern and hip but the food and the people make you feel like you are in Italy. As soon as I was seated, the waiter explained the menu thoroughly and with an Italian accent. The waiters knew the answers to every question and never were slow on service.
We first tried the braised pork meatballs. The meatballs were served with tomato sauce and toasted polenta bread. The tomato sauce was smooth and simple yet flavorful. The meat was juicy and not dense which is perfect for an appetizer.cj.211.a
I then tried the pappardelle with sausage ragu, ricotta crema, and broccoli. I took a chance on this dish because I wasn’t sure if there was going to be big chunks of broccoli or not. I was pleasantly surprised to find that when they brought the dish out, the broccoli was pureed into the ragu sauce. I loved this dish and how there were hints of broccoli but you could still taste the peppery sausage.cj.211.b
The ricotta crema was creamy and salty and made the dish so decadent. My favorite dish was the milk braised pork shoulder with caramelized cabbage. This dish must be their best seller because who doesn’t like tender, fatty pork? Seriously, how could you not order this dish?
The pork fell apart and the caramelized cabbage was so sweet. It was a match made in heaven. The meat was very fatty but the dish was served with arugula tossed in lemon juice which helped to cut down on the fat. Although I was very full, I had to try some dessert because with this successful of a dinner so far, the dessert must be amazing.
I tried the cinnamon meringue cookie with lemon curd and blueberries. The cookie was so light and crunchy and had a small note of almond. The lemon curd and blueberries added great texture and made the dessert very refreshing.
If you love Italian food, you need to try Rossoblu because you will not be disappointed by any dish. The restaurant serves small plates so I tried many dishes and not one component of any dish disappointed me.
