The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere. Our waiter left a lot to be desired. Can’t remember his name because he never said it, his introduction to us was “ Can’t give you bottomless mimosas because there’s only 15 minutes left in the special” (we never asked for bottomless mimosas). After placing our drink order he snatched the menu from my daughters hand, I pretty much knew it wasn’t going to get any better from there.

My daughters ordered pizza while I ordered a pasta dish. When the food arrived I immediately noticed something didn’t look right to me. I am not one to complain, let alone write a review. The pasta sauce didn’t taste like others I’ve had in the past and it appeared to be ground beef and not prosciutto in the pasta. When I asked the waiter he erupted with “It’s prosciutto, 100%” to which I said taste it if you are so sure. He then proceeded to pull my plate and take it back to the kitchen. He returned a few minutes later with the same exact plate (never had that happen before), except now it had slices of prosciutto on top of the pasta.

I didn’t want to ruin my daughters birthday lunch so I just took one for the team and ate what I could. The flavor was not bad it’s just not what I was expecting least of all what I thought I ordered.

I assume the other servers had to have noticed the quality of “service” we were receiving because of few of them stopped and tried to intervene and returned after the plate was brought back to check on us. Thoughtful but pointless.

Sad to say first and last visit for me.

I go all the time and usually have a great time. This time was different. Waiter we got was unfortunately very rude at the end of our stay. We had a great time and he was very nice but had a problem with our tip and had the audacity to embarrass us and ask why we didn’t tip more. I’ve never felt so uncomfortable to be at a restaurant. Won’t be going back for a while, usually have a good time there but he put a bad taste in all of our mouths.

Came here for My girlfriends and I one year anniversary and we loved it. Great service, great food, and a pretty scenery. Our waiter, Mike, was so nice, he offered to take a picture of us and checked up on us very often. Will most definitely be coming back.

I’ve been to Louie Bossi about 5 times in the last year and every single time I’ve had the most awful service. It’s sad because the food is so great. I probably won’t be returning in the near future just because the food isn’t worth this terrible of service. Tonight at dinner, we did not see our server once after he took our orders for food. Our appetizer was served before we even got our drinks from the bar. My pasta came out cold and it took me 10 minutes to grab someone to heat it back up. By the time my pasta came back out, my friend was done with his food. We also were sitting right next to the kitchen, which was unbearably loud. Expect good food from this restaurant (although slightly overpriced), but never expect good service.

Nice vibe....disappointing, undercooked pizza appetizer....limited menu for the non meat eater amongst us. Table for 4 (a booth) was too small for glasses and plates. Outstanding bread! A mixed bag.

Food was amazing and so was my server! Only thing was it was suuuppeerrrrr packed! Def don’t think the restaurant was at 50% capacity. Unless the guidelines have changed and I’m just unaware. But every table was full. It was super loud, so it would hard to hold a convo with a large group. I wouldn’t suggest to go for a first date if you’re trying to have an intimate conversation. Nonetheless, food is always great here and I’ll be going back, probably for outdoor seating because indoor felt a little crammed for my liking during these times.

We had dinner last night at loui bossi. We normally go to the one in boca but we decided to check out the one in Fort Lauderdale. The hostess were very nice and sat us in the beautiful gazebo with lights everywhere. Our server Brad greeted us right away and was super nice! Good experience overall we put our food order in by 10 because the restaurant closes at 11 due to covid. We were going to order another bottle of wine but another server came over to our table at 1037 and we asked if we could get another bottle he said no. He continued with that the bar is actually closed and we cannot order any more drinks that they already did last call. We sat and looked around saw EVERYONE getting drinks brought to their table. We asked a bartender what time they stopped serving drinks and she said “What time is it?” We said 1040 she said yeah we stop serving it at 1040. Our amazing server then came over to our table and we asked about alcohol he was like of course you can order a bottle of Veuve. He gave us espresso and a dessert with the candle! I could not believe other servers were trying to take money from his pocket!! We left by 11 o clock which we respected. Thanks again BRAD!

2nd time this month we went to this restaurant. Food is always good but service is horrible. Waited 25 min for the check and This time the waiter couldn’t do the math on the check and I got a call on the way home I owed more money.

I won’t be back anytime soon just because of the service.

Overall it was nice. Food was good but nothing out of the norm. Service was just okay.. lots of people standing around, when asked one of them a question he said he couldn’t help but would get our sever who never came. I would definitely recommend, but not out of this world like other reviews state.

There is nothing bad to say about this place. The service is wonderful and the food is even better! You cannot go wrong no matter what you order! Start off with a cheese/meet board and order some homemade pasta or a fresh wood fired pizza!! I have been to this location about 10 times now and each time is better than the last. Cant wait for it to cool down in Florida so I can sit in the back and sip on some wine where you really feel like you are in Italia!

Honestly the food just wasn't good. I know its a pandemic but the Ceasar salad was pretty pathetic and the pasta dishes were pretty disappointing as well. The peach appetizer special was pretty good though.
