Very active on a Sunday night, perhaps even more than normal since it was St Patrick’s Day. We were seated immediately because we had a reservation. Excellent service from a team of waiters who knew the menu well and made some good recommendations. Loved the thin-crust pizza, tomato basil bruschetta, and chicken parm. Salads nothing special. Good selection of wines and cocktails. Bocce courts closed on weekends to make room for more tables.

As always great food, I ordered my favorite Rigatoni w/ veal,delish. My boyfriend ordered the lamb chops ,they tasted a bit too charred for my taste,eventough they were medium cooked
Wish they had happy hour offered on the tables at 5:30,or the bottomless bellinis all day Sunday.
Definitely got my pasta fix till next visit.

Went for brunch on our first day of vacation and had an absolutely amazing time. The bottomless drinks were delicious and truly bottomless, food was wonderful, and our server Michael was absolutely fantastic. We were blown away by the outdoor seating and the ambiance was perfect. I’m vegetarian and while there wasn’t an overwhelming amount of options there was a decent amount to pick from.

Great food and great service. Portions were generous, we ended up splitting a meal and we still left full. We did get the cheese, meat appetizer. I can’t tell you the specifics of that because we let the waiter pick, but it was awesome

We had an amazing meal and dining experience last Friday. Jonathan, our waiter was first rate— he explained the menu beautifully and gave us some great suggestions.
The food is always outstanding and consistent each tine we come — from the delicious bread they bring at the start all the way to the yummy desserts. We enjoyed the mushroom pizza with truffle oil to start and then we loved the branzino with salsa verde. ( perfectly crispy on the outside and moist in the inside) The side cacio e Pepe was superb! On Tuesday’s I love to come for their daily special gnocchi.
The homemade carmelized banana gelato affogato for dessert was amazing.
The staff always do their best to make you comfortable. We were sitting on the back patio and all the fans were on as it had been a hot day. As the sun was setting it became a bit breezy and they kindly shut off some of the fans close to us. That was much appreciated.

On vacation with my two kids and we wanted to eat out at a nice place with great atmosphere. I’ve been to Louie Bossi before and it was excellent. This time however, it wasn’t great from the start. The hostesses were arguing with each other in front of the customers. We got our table about a half hour after our reservation which wasn’t too bad. Our waitress was polite and professional and was apologetic when things didn’t go right. My son got the wrong pizza and by the time they made the new one we were already done with our dinner. Our pasta tasted a little funky but we did not return it. The manager did give us complimentary dessert which was nice.
Overall I’d say I’d go back. They must of been having a rough night.

Again it was a very nice evening. Food was delicious and very good service.

While I had asked for a table in the garden more than a week in advance, I was very disappointed to find out that it was not possible. Finally, after waiting for 15-20 min, they were able to assign us a table.

Food & service were excellent. The only complaint was the table it was really small & wobbly. My husband is 6’5” & they sat us at a smalll table! Didn’t the hostess recognize this???We complained to our server so he gave us a free dessert. I would have preferred to be moved as 2 young girls & other parties of 2 had bigger table than us!!! Otherwise I would have given this a 5 rating!

I went to dinner to meet a friend I have not seen in a year. I can’t say enough about our waiter Kevin. He gave us the best suggestions and was super patient and let us take our time and catch up with each other. Ive been to many other places and they try and rush you out. We had one of the most relaxing dinners ever. Thank you guys for everything. We will definitely be back soon:)

The service was terrible and we waited 2 hours for our food. The waitress forgot our table. Our meals cake at different times and the food made us sick into the night. Louie bossi was a staple when we visit Florida. Will not be coming back after the terrible service we received and the terrible food we were served. Unacceptable service for a reputable restaurant and definitely over priced.

Great Restaurant, unfortunately like all great restaurants it was PACKED and loud. Still worth it as far as we were all concerned. Food? great, atmosphere? fun, service? a bit slow (but all the servers were swamped). We would still recommend giving them a try.

the food is delightful, once you finally gain the attention of the wait staff. Do not be shy, but rather assert yourself and do not fail to remind your waitstaff that you are there to eat and drink.
The food is really superb and if they figure out the attention deficit issues with wait and management staff this restaurant will be unstoppable.
