the hostess was incredibly rude and unfriendly. We requested a table outside and were sat at a very loud table in the kitchen where we couldn't even have a conversation because it was so loud. When we asked to be moved outside, the hostess rolled her eyes and ordered me to go sit back down and she would come get me when she had something available.
I suggest you advise your hostess to learn some manners. They are the face that customers see when they walk in the restaurant and can set the tone for the dinner. Luckily our server was fantastic and made up for her rude and unprofessional attitude.

Ever since meeting Bill Watson in West Palm , and hearing about the then brand new Louis Bossi restaurant, from the first visit where Toni Bossi treated us like gold, we’ve been going back ever since. Always our go -to when we have out of town guests - never disappoints

Food was great and service was great. We got there at about 11PM, not easy to find sit down dinner food at that time of night. Was not aware of the night time DJ. Noise level for me was not my thing but I’m sure their usual patrons at that time of night enjoyed it.

Very crowded evening because of events in town - Open Table got us right to our table. The waiter was very attentive on such a busy night and the food was amazing. Will definitely consider this a "go to" in the neighborhood.

Overrated and expensive. Food is good but not worth the high prices. So incredibly loud every where in the restaurant. I had a sore throat for the rest of the evening. It's just the popular place where locals decided to meet. If you want good food and you're not into the loud, bar scene, go elsewhere.

Birthday. Was great felt a little rushed. Would not get the steak again was not cooked properly and had a lot of fat and Grisel. But what should I expect it’s an Italian rest. Should of stuck to what I usually get. Still one of my favorite restaurants in lauderdale

Maybe it was an off day or maybe it was because they were so busy, but sunday’s experience was just so-so. In the past it’s been better. The server was pleasant but inattentive. The food was mediocre at best. The bottomless mimosa was undrinkably bad.

There are a lot of good Italian restaurants in the area and I’ll have to think about it twice before I return to Louie Bossi’s.
