Pasta with clams was a disappointment and this is a common and easy dish to make. The Bronzino was good but, at $30, way overpriced. Glass of scotch on the rock, $16.75.

I requested a booth in the bar and it was ready when we arrived. We ordered the bottomless bloodies and never had to ask for a refill because our waiter knew when we were empty and just refilled them. Our salads were delicious and will definitely order them again.

My first time with my husband. Our friends recommended some entrees and we all split. Everything was so delicious. No complaints and the wine we had made for a great evening.

Kelly was a great server. My husband loved our mussel appetizer, me, not so much. My Bronzino was excellent, the Brussels sprout side was tasty but a little undercooked.
My husbands Carbonara was so salty he couldn’t eat it. They took it off our bill without our asking them to.
For a very full restaurant, the noise level was surprisingly good. We could hear ourselves talk!
We will go back.

Every time I book a table through OpenTable when I get there the table is ready or the table they give me is right by the front entrance. It makes me wonder why I’m making a reservation when people show up and they are seating people that walk in.

Best thing we ordered was the (housemade) short pasta with mushrooms (PACCHERI,
funghi misti, mascarpone). We plan on returning for this specific dish. We were slightly disappointed in the two red meat dishes we ordered, the NY Strip and Lamb Chops, but that's a small part of what was overall an excellent meal. Salads were terrific.

Usually a go to for great food was shocked with two disappointments. Pasta with white claim sauce had over cooked sandy claims and over use of pepper. Cookie sampler 1 of the 4 cookies edible, bendable biscotti just shameful. Rigatoni with meat sauce, ribeye, cheese cake and cappuccino all perfection. Struggled with this bill with only 50% of our meal a hit. Not our usual experience.

Varied menu, always fresh. I went for pasta as usual. Great carbonara. My wife and sister both opted for fish, salmon and swordfish. I tasted both. Salmon tender and mild, swordfish, probably the best I have ever had.

The sausage pizza was delicious and 1/2 price...Boom! The Nero da Vola on tap was terrific as well. What set the experience apart, however, was the genuine kindness of Juan, my bartender. Many thanks! Bob

Our first visit for brunch offered on New Year’s Day. The menu was extensive. The prices decent. Krystin was our server and she was attentive. The atmosphere is always invigorating. The brunch items were very good. My companion had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and it was a hit. I had the Italian sausage ring with eggs and it was very filling and tasty. We’ve dined here often, as well as Elisabetta’s in DelRay, but first brunch experience. We’ll be back as we go to brunch at least once every weekend.

I am Italian and Louie Bossi's is the closest to good Italian food we can get...
I only wish they invest more in vegan options.

We had a 7:45PM reservation for 4, and we were promptly seated at a booth. Our server brought good hot bread and olive oil for dipping. The food (pasta, pizza, salads) was all good, as was the wine recommended by our server. My only complaint was about the noise level. It was so loud that we had to shout at each other to be heard.

The look outside is like a plaza in italy, and the look prepares your taste buds for a delicious Italian experience. The service was excellent. I had a lentil bean soup, which I havent had in years, I truly enjoyed it. Fried Calamari was perfectly cooked. The Pasta with oil and chicken dish was large and I didn't want to stop enjoying it, so wear loose pants! We shared a Tiramisu, soft, sweet pillows of lady fingers with a light rum flavor and the smooth mascarpone texture..yum. "I will be back"

Less than mediocre service by a server who mastered the art of eye rolling. Ridiculously hot in the restaurant and a manager who claimed the rain outside made it hot inside.

I’ve eaten there five times (I don’t live local) and each meal exceeded my high expectations. There’s nothing better than fresh pasta and this place hits a home run. The Chicken Parm is the size of a manhole cover. Great place

In past rated well, however, this time made reservation and still had to wait 15-20 min. Ordered food, received drinks and bread and went to wash; came back and drink and table clean. What a joke! Horrible will never go back to this restaurant..

The server started us off with a warm welcome. The menu was amazing. So many choices. Wish I knew Italian more than what I do know.
The food was great, portions very large. Then came dessert! The cannolis were the best ever!
The only downside was the amount of noise in the restaurant. Very difficult to hear my dinner companion and we were only across the table from one another.
Other than the volume of the noise, I would say to anyone that likes Italian food to go and enjoy your meal there.
