We love Louie Bossi’s and make a point to try to come every time we are in town. The service was phenomenal and our waiter Jim was amazing. I have a gluten allergy and they were great to make sure that I knew about all the choices and could tell me what was and wasn’t safe for me. The food was delicious as it always has been and the ambiance is so nice. We sat in the back garden area and loved it.

Great food with a killer atmosphere. Highly recommend sitting on the front patio for a nice breeze and a view of Las Olas while you eat. Will definitely be back many times.

Changed our favorite dish, Scottadito (the lamb chops), for the worse. For the Coccoli Fritto appetizer, the bread was undercooked and prosciutto looked bad. One of our favorite "go to" places but was disappointing this time.

They have menu specials every night. My favorite is Monday night- eggplant parmigiana....however all food is excellent. Check out happy hour specials as well! A bit loud on the inside but there is an outside garden and front sidewalk seating on las Olas. You will not be disappointed!

So many screaming children in the back garden and no one said anything. Not really cool to do an unlimited brunch when kids are running circles around you and grabbing your chairs and screaming next to you. We came here to get away from screaming children, please have your staff be trained to handle these situations

Louie Bossi is the best in South Florida any day of the week! Tonight we went because it was our anniversary but we really don’t need a reason to come here... it’s just perfect for any day. Everything that comes out of their kitchen is going to be perfect and will always be fresh. The bread is awesomely baked on premises and all pasta is made fresh as well. The specials are all great. On Sundays they always offer chicken parmigiana as one of the specials and it really is the only place I’ll eat chicken parm. The service is outstanding! I’ve never had a problem here and that’s why we love coming here and bringing guests as well... Louie Bossi has never disappointed! Thank you!

My name is Svetlana, Michael is my husband. It was worst service ever. Beautiful place, that’s why we decided to celebrate birthday of my husband. With reservation we were waiting for the table outside 45 minutes instead of 10 like they said when we came. And after nobody never congratulated my husband, I was so disappointed!(( I was asking 2 times if they put in system about our occasion and 2 different people said they did, don’t worry. As a result nobody ever congratulated... I absolutely don’t recommend celebrate birthdays there, they don’t care, they ruined my husbands birthday ... not gonna come back.

Everything about this night was wrong, once we got to the restaurant with a reservation we had to wait an additional 30 minutes, we understood we asked for a larger table. Once we did get to our table our server did get my friend’s drink order wrong. Appetizers which were prosciuttos and mozzarellas were excellent. Then came the main course which was ribeye medium rare with sides of polenta and potatoes. We waited 30 minutes and the sides were brought out, then an additional 20 minutes and the steak came out which at this point we were beyond frustrated. We were not given any reasonable explanation as to why it took long; the place was not even close to capacity. The manager then came over and offered to send us home with different food which we declined, they did then break conversation with my friend to clear the table with the server.

The food was delicious. We ordered the appetizer special which was a prosciutto and burrata with marcona almonds and truffle honey which was outstanding! I ordered spaghetti carbonara which was delicious although a little different from what I’m used to. My husband ordered a spaghetti sorrentino and my friend ordered the pasta bolognese and both were excellent. But best of all was the service. It was outstanding!!! Unfortunately I didn’t get her name but she was attentive, made great recommendations and was funny.
Great experience and we’ll definitely go back.

Very beautiful setting- romantic!! Make sure you get a seat in the back courtyard it is stunning! The server was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. It is pricey but totally worth it!!

Wow. The food is out of this world. So amazing. We had pizza, pasta and cannolis. Service was impeccable and the place is stunning indoors and outdoors. Probably won’t go back on a Sunday afternoon though. It was way too loud!

Wrong appetizer was delivered. New appetizer had to be ordered. In the meantime, main course was delivered and sent back because we didn't get our appetizer yet. New appetizer was delivered along with main course again. Main course sent back again and we tried to enjoy the appetizer. Main course came out for the 3rd time. Felt very rushed and extremely noisy. The wine was very good but very overpriced. Wine that I get elsewhere for $30.00 was $60.00 here.
