Marcello was our server. He seemed to be busy with other tables, and we felt ignored. Took so long just to get our appetizer, which was only cheese. Food was good. Not sure if I would go back....nice atmosphere, the polenta was very good. Service just very slow.

Brittany was our server and she was on point. Attentive. Professional. Available, even though we were sitting outside for a late lunch and no one else was around for her to serve ( thus, why I said attentive). When I questioned her about wine, she suggested that she could send the sommelier to the table as her knowledge was somewhat limited. I appreciated her honesty. In a few minutes appears a level 2 sommelier, Carlos, who was in his late 20’s. Don’t be misled by his inked arms and youth, he knows his wines. He recommended a reasonably priced Super Tuscan, vouched for it, and on Wednesday’s all bottled wines are 50% off. Our salads were prepared to perfection. It was a great late lunch... recommended.

Didn’t think that two prawns, chewy minute octopus and calamari amongst large chunky pasta (within a very salty base sauce) was either appetising or good value for money. Sorry!

Food was excellent.
We sat outside as the dining room was excessively loud.
The waiter wasn’t particularly knowledgeable, tried to push expensive menu items, and had a surly personality!

The dinner was nice we had a few issues with the service bring us the wrong appetizer at first which was forgiving and then we got the desert but no utensils to eat at work. We did feel that everything came out so fast that we were being somewhat rushed to get in and get out based on how fast the food came.

Salads were excellent. Large and well prepared. Waitress was missing in action. Never asked if we wanted bread and never brought it. She was busy with other tables and while she took the order someone else brought it to the table and then She passed by when we were just about finished to ask how they tasted. It was at the end of lunch, close to 2, only a few tables occupied. More action at the bar, so not sure why she wasn’t around.

We had all but given up on this restaurant after several bad experiences with service and hostess attitude, but we live nearby and decided to give it one more try......VERY glad we did!

The service was excellent, food was outstanding and management was highly visible and engaged.

If you haven’t been back in a while, give it another try.....you might be pleasantly surprised like we were!

Absolutely loved this restaurant!! Perfect dinner for last night of vacation. Food was delicious and service was great. The only negative was that the restaurant was very noisy and loud and I could barely hear my date talking and he was right across from me. Spaghetti was delicious. Next time I’m in Boca I’m definitely going back!

We have been to this place several times. It's been a good but not great experience. The service is above average as is the ambiance. The food and prices are not. On this most recent visit most of the food came to the table not hot. I didn't say cold but definitely not hot. There are appeared to be enough staff so not sure why it happened. Louie Bossi is a good not great dining choice.

The food was so salty. Everything. Three out of the four of us ate only half the meal. The water bottles with the little water glasses was a joke. We all drink a lot of water and kept asking constantly for more bottles. Scrap the bottles. Get bigger glasses. The noise level was very loud. I guess that says there were a lot of customers. Good for the management.

The food was very good. Service was ok, not great. It’s was a very busy Friday night and they put us at the worst possible table, right by the hostess stand, little square table that every person in the place had to walk past. They are very good about about allergies and special requests. Cocktails and food are delicious. Great menu. It is very loud in there, hard to hear your dinner companions. Waited too long for drinks and entrees.
