As always we had great experience as Louie Bossi. Good food and service. The seating at the front has low tables that aren’t ideal for eating off of but fine for tapas style eating.

We went there for dinner and our waiter, Alessandro, was able to give us some excellent wine and food recommendations. He was attentive, knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We had the charcuterie plate, octopus salad (to die for), and the rigatoni bolognese. The outdoor back patio was fun, and it was a great atmosphere. Go. You’ll love it.

One of our favorites on Las Olas. Our only issue was I am gluten free. My dish was served to someone else. Good thing I know the difference in pasta. Mgr was very attentive and addressed us right away. We will go back.

Our meal was great!!! We live in West Pembroke Pines, my husband was giving me a hard time about driving 45 minutes when there are plenty of restaurants in our area. After the dinner he said, “that was a great dinner”.

Love not only the food but the atmosphere as well. Can’t wait to come back a visit when it’s not as hot so we can enjoy dinner in the courtyard.

We ate in the garden out back, and it was lovely. They have music playing, but it is quieter than inside, which was perfect because my 81-year-old mom was with us and she can't hear in noisy restaurants. They also have tables on the street, but the back garden ambiance is nicer. Food and service great as usual! I love this place.

The service at this restaurant never disappoints and today was no exception. We dined at an off hour, 3 PM so it was much quieter than usual. The timing, taste and temperature of the food was good. Our server Brian, was attentive and friendly. Another good dining experience at Loius Bossi.

Too loud, way too loud.
Poor management is waiting list. Disorganization at hosted area.
Server was not friendly. Service was below average,
Requested help with wine - didn’t really get it.
Food is good
Tables to close to each other,
We couldn’t even finish our meal - we left quickly and took it to go

I’m not sure what I like best about this restaurant- the food or the ambience. The outdoor seating area is phenomenal. If you want to bring your kids - go early. It’s more kid friendly before dark.

We chose this restaurant based on reviews and it definitely lived up to expectations. The ambiance almost brought you to a restaurant in Italy down to the server. We are visiting from NJ and there are plenty of restaurants in the metro area and this would compete with most! We will definitely come back!

We visited Fort Lauderdale 2 summers in a row and your restaurant is our favorite spot. Food is the top reason but we love the atmosphere (back yard especially) and the service too! We always feel special every time we come there. Even during our short visits, we plan our day around your restaurant. Wish you had one in Chicago!! We would be there every weekend! :)

This is a beautiful restaurant with a lot of ambience. We were there during lunch, so could not judge the bar scene. The creamy mushroom pasta dish was delicious and the portion was huge. I thought, however, that $4.50 for each meatball was a bit stiff, but they were very tasty. I had the eggplant panini which was hot and crisp. Very large, so had to take half home. Loved the cucumber salad accompaniment. Have been here before, also during the day, and the food was very good as well. During the evening, the place is packed. We were just passing by, and the crowd is very young and lively. Looks like all were having a great time.

I had the avocado toast and it was delicious! The bread was fresh, the avocado was smooth, and the scrambled eggs were not overdone or too dry, just right. We also shared the pastry special which was an olive oil pound cake. It had a refreshing lemon-y flavor along with a richness from the olive oil that was delightful.
