Fantastic food and outstanding service. Pasta and cheese is fresh made onsite and you can taste the difference. They cooked the pasta to a perfect al dente which very few restaurants achieve especially when its fresh pasta. Try everything. There is nothing that’s bad here!

I live nearby and it’s my favorite eatery. After ordering the same delicious dish every time I tried a new one and of course it was delicious too. But I stuck to always having their Sorbet as my dessert. You won’t regret it, yum!!!!

Everything was fantastic aside from the fact that I had made the reservations about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks ahead a time specifically asking to sit outside on the back patio. When the hostess called to confirm the reservation the day before I again expressed my request that we be on the patio in the back and I was assured that we would be accommodated. However, when we arrived on Sunday the back was not available as they were having a party for 20 people and said they couldn’t accommodate us and they were unable to give us a clear wait time if we had chosen to wait. Aside from that & our waiter that appeared to be in the weeds, all was well.

Nice restaurant, great food, good service, very loud. I marked the reservation as a birthday celebration however the server did not aknowledge it and did not offer to bring dessert with a candle. Overall nice place to meet with friends.

We are regulars at Louie Bossi’s, but will no longer be dining here. Our most recent dinner here resulted in the worst service and rudest staff we’ve ever encountered. We waited for two hours for our food and received no apology from the waitress or manager who came by. When our food did arrive, it was nothing special and many of the meals at the table were cold. Not worth the wait or $.

My wife and I love this place, however we were a little disappointed. I made the reservation through open table and I said this was for my wife's birthday. When the hostess called to confirm, I told her this was for my wife's birthday. When we arrived for dinner I told the waitress this was for my wife's birthday. Not one thing was done, not a small desert with a candle in it, not even a "Happy Birthday" from anyone. We may or may not come back here not sure. I am not happy.

Got off a cruise ship and had some time to kill so looked for a spot for lunch. The place looked packed so we checked it out and read great things. Used OpenTable to get a reservation for mid afternoon and the place was still packed. Despite the crowd, we were seated close to our reservation time. Service was quick and food came out reasonably fast. Table for 4 and everyone loved their food. Appetizers were great and each entrée was outstanding. I had the Mafaldine and it was fantastic. If you are anywhere near Fort Lauderdale, you have to give this place a try.

The food and ambiance here is amazing. I️ would definitely go back. The service was not acceptable to me. My food took like an hour to come after I️ ate my appetizer and completed my drinks. Although it was Saturday night and busy, I️ had a reservation and people that came in after me received their food. My waiter was the worse and he made my experience the worst.
Despite that definitely somewhere to go!

I have come here multiple times, my experiance has always been great but the last time I went, the experiance was less then great. I brought my girlfriend and her family here for my girlfriends birthday. The server that we had brought out a completely different dish than what my girlfriend ordered. It was another 30 minutes before he brought out the correct dish and everyone had already eaten. I didn't want to say anything at the table because we were with a party but I was noticeably bothered by this. The waiter did not even comp the plate that he messed up on. I come from a background of food and beverage management and that was unbelievable, as specially at an establishment such as Louie Bossi. I love the place but I may put other options before Louie Bossi next time I am celebrating at dinner.

Nice bar and attentive bartender. Waitstaff was informative regarding the menu. Red wine selection was pretty broad and sommelier did well by us. Food was very good. The kitchen kept it simple and good. A cool restaurant with cool people. Well dressed millennials; Not the grungy Bernie sanders kind. Everyone seemed tasteful. Definitely can't go wrong if you are looking for Italian food with funky atmosphere.
