Food was good and the service was excellent. However, the noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation. I may go again for a drink or lunch but not dinner.

Avoid this trap. Possibly the worst pizza ever.

This is one of our favorite places in Las Olas. The atmosphere is vibrant, and the food and service are great. Weekends are very busy, so definitively recommend to make reservations.

Amazing service. Food was outstanding. A very pleasant surprise. We had drinks at the bar and were seated within minutes of our reservation. The meatballs were the best I have ever had. We had the filet special and pizza. Both were perfect. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious! You could tell the pasta and bread were fresh! We loved the short rib pasta and the Sunday gravy plate. We also ordered the burrata which was on the small side. They had brought our entrees out before the appetizer and the servers seemed very scattered and rushed. I wasn's super impressed with either of the cocktails we ordered. They were way too sweet. The place is busy and loud which might be fine for a group but it's not a romantic date night kind of place. The courtyard looked cute and I might request it next time. I will definitely return for the food alone but with some effort they could make this place into quite an experience.

Despite a large crowd on a busy Saturday night, the food and service continue to excel. Roving managers keep their eye on everything and pitch in when needed. LB doesn't rest on their laurels. Smart management makes sure they have adequate staffing at all times. Bravo

My meal was wonderful
I had the salmon
My husband ordered another fish dish and asked for it with no butter
He assumed that’s how it came but it didn’t
And it made him sick
Apparently the waiter did not take down the order correctly or the kitchen messed up!!

Patricia, our server, enhanced the experience. Great food, especially the chicken parmigiana which was the special for the night. White Sangria was awesome and the ricotta cheesecake was the best I’ve had in years. All in all, a wonderful experience, despite the noise level, which isn’t something I appreciate but appears to reflect how popular the restaurant is.

Louie Bossi never disappoints. Service is on point and the food is excellent. Make sure to book through Open Table, we went 7pm on a Saturday night and were seated immediately. Without the reservation the wait was 60-90 minutes.

During Las Olas Art Show, this place was a perfect stop for lunch. The food was delicious, and although the pasta fagioli was not vegetarian, it was also very good. Highly recommend having a reservation. The place gets busy.

La comida es muy buena y rica lastima del personal, dese que llegas a pedir la mesa la hostes es una grosera que te grita porque le preguntas si ya esta tu mesa, después los meseros al ver que no pides ninguna bebida alcohólica se molestan y te atienden muy mal y ya no les importas, la solución que te dan es descintsrte cosas de la cuenta pero esa es su solución. Muy buena comida pero muy mal servicio

Visiting from out of town. Looking for a good pizza and pasta option. Chose the restaurant based on on line reviews. The pizza was good. The waiter sold us on the made from scratch pasta. The pasta and seafood dish was a mistake. The pasta was uber al dente, and the shellfish was hard to find. Two shrimp and very tiny clams and muscles. Go for the pizza, avoid the pasta

Consistently good food and lively atmosphere that reflects a good time for all. The lunch time was moderately busy for a week day afternoon but attention by my server was spotty. My business associate checked us in, because I was a few minutes late but the restaurant reported me as a no show.

Loved the location! Food was great but very over priced for pasta. Great ambiance and incredibly crowded. Glad we were able to sit outside so it was a bit more quiet. Service was average but our server did have a lot of tables and all were full. Would recommend if visiting Ft. Lauderdale. Definitely a happening spot and would go back!
