Dinner with Wine Pairings at Rossoblu

You'll start with a light bite, then enjoy an alluring appetizer, a small sampling of the chef's handmade pastas, a hearty protein from the wood-fire grill and finish with a traditional dessert. Sample some of the best flavors of Northern Italy with wine pairings. You’ll also take a behind the scenes tour of the pasta workshop and butcher room.

About Chef Steve Samson
Samson grew up spending summers in Bologna, Italy, his mother’s hometown, where life centered around the dining room table.  After graduating from New York’s Institute of Culinary Education, he worked at various Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Italy before returning to Southern California in 2009, where he opened the award-winning Pizzeria Ortica in Orange County. In 2011, Samson opened Sotto in Los Angeles, which earned immediate acclaim as Los Angeles Magazine’s #1 Best New Restaurant and one of Esquire Magazine’s Best New Restaurants in America.
