Waited at least 20 minutes for a server, even after asking three times. Server was forgetful and barely adequate. Quite disappointing for the price tag.

Louie Bossi is a great place for love in the time of CoronaVirus. The service is spot on, the restaurant has added sanitizers at every entrance, and the staff is knowledgeable about the additional cleaning they have to do in between customers.

We arrived early for our reservation and the hostess had no problem with that and sat us down. The waiter was very clear on the specials and promoted the food with enthusiasm. We loved everything we tried but the duck prosciutto with the burrata was outstanding.

They give the appetizer and the main course at the same time. Don’t order it all at once.

Had a party of 5 and were seated quickly on a busy Thursday night. Food was awesome, great surroundings- but a little loud for conversation. Would definitely go again when we’re in town.

This is a place to be! Great and lively crowd, but beware - even with a reservation we had to wait close to 30 minutes. The upside is the excellent server at the hightops, Brian, was a delight and made the wait fun. Pizza and a special appetizer were delicious and prices for both food and drink were very reasonable.

Food was fabulous. Service was great. I’m very particular about Italian food and this was great. One of my favorite restaurants. We say in the garden and I felt like we were in Italy. Inside can be a bit loud but very fun. Make a reservation wait can be long

Went to celebrate our engagement. They did nothing special for us. Did not offer Parmesan with our pasta entre. Very busy place but overall very good. Sat in garden area thankfully. Inside had high noise level. Wouldn’t rush to go back but wouldn’t stay away.

One of the BEST Italian restaurants I’ve eaten in. Comparable to Italy! Our server Amanda couldn’t have been more gracious and helpful! Celebrated my birthday with a special treat of 3 scoops of gelato to top off a fantastic meal! Definitely returning and would recommend highly!

A reunion of friends from up North.

The brunch was delicious and our server, Frances, proved 💯% sensational!

The vibe, as always, was lively and restaurant looked beautiful.

...this was my first time at Louie Bossi. The food was very good and the waiter (JP) did a good job taking care of us. It took a bit of time to settle in as the restaurant was running at full tilt. I had the lamb chops, which were delicious and I'll come back again for the strip steak. The Bread, Meatballs, Seafood Fra Diavolo, and Pizza were also quite good.
It's a decent place for a date but the ambient noise is not condusive to deep conversations. I'll be back when I am back in town.

Went with my wife on a Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. Atmosphere was great -- it was packed, loud, and fun. Despite the number of guests inside, the service was quick and smooth. Our server, Chris, was excellent. He was funny, friendly, and attentive. He really made our night that much more special. Food was incredible. We can never go back without getting the mozzerella tasting. A must stop for anyone looking to be in a scene and get some great food.

Be sure to ask for Chris.

Louie Bossi has very much become a Fort Lauderdale staple and whenever I’m in the are I always make sure to stop by for some of the freshest pasta out there. But today I decided I wanted to try their pizza since on numerous occasions I’ve been told that their pizza is to die for. I decided to go traditional and order their margarita pizza but was recommended to have the DOP version of the margarita that is served with burrata mozzarella cheese, sure why not... more cheese. And I am so glad I went with the servers recommendation cause the pizza very perfect in every bite. I do suggest that you make a reservation here cause the weekends it does get pretty packed and it’s simple here on Open Table. Even great that I added we would have a stroller in our party in the comments section and the restaurant was easily able to accommodate us.

Good food for the most part. Wonderful service by Gigi. I wish I could say the same by the gentleman who was sharing the responsibility of our table with her. I hope she gets the recognition she deserves.

It is a very noisy crowded place.
Food was good, not great.
Service was great, although tables so crowded it was constant bumps due to waitress and waiters busyness.

The food was amazing, the service was fantastic! We had a margarita pizza and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. We also tried the Friday special (lobster fra díscolo), the rigatoni, and the tiramisu. All incredible!!

Food and drinks are outstanding!! Delicious Italian sauce made from San Marsano tomatoes. Book your reservations early as it gets really crowded in the evenings. Use open table if you can’t get a reservation by calling the restaurant.would definelty be back soon!

Restaurant was jammed and vibrant. We sat on the porch which was very nice. Food was excellent. Wines on tap were very reasonably priced and good. service was okay - perhaps because the place was so full.
