I always have a great time and excellent service. I look forward to coming back and getting the carbonara and pizza. It’s certainly heavy food but worth a cheat meal!

I would definitely recommend this to others, hosted a business dinner here and it was fantastic. Everyone loved the food, great assortment of appetizers for everyone to get started. Good drinks. Got a great booth which was perfect for socializing for a smaller group as opposed to a regular table where the people at the ends won't be able to connect as much.

Food was above average. They seemed to be very very short staffed which i understand is not easily fixed but a little heads up before we sat down would have been nice. Took 1+ hr for 3 plates of food. Drinks took at least 20 minutes in between each round. Again, i totally get it that staffing is an issue across the industry right now but speak up to your guests in advance. Don’t let people find out the hard way when it’s too late to eat elsewhere. No business wants to turn away clients and miss out on revenue but that’s the better option than alienating the clients you do have. Probably won’t be going back.

We waited for a table out in the courtyard and it was totally worth it. BUT when we finally got seated we waited 30 minutes at the table before a waiter even came over to acknowledge us and bring us water. Then once we took our drink orders he left again for another 20 minutes even though we told him we were ready to order.. when he finally came back the meal my fiancé wanted all day they conveniently “just ran out of it”. If he didn’t disappear for 30 minutes at a time my fiancé would’ve got the meal he wanted.

When we got our food it was delicious. I can’t say I won’t be back because the food made up for the terrible service.

I will shout-out the hostess because she was super sweet and did everything she could to accommodate us.

Wonderful casual, intimate setting with multiple seating areas (1 outdoor garden in the back, 1 outdoor covered area in the front and the main dining area which is broken up into several sections). Absolutely delicious Italian fare - so many options to choose from. We had the arancini for an appetizer, paccheri pasta with mushrooms and mascarpone and rigatoni with braised beef and veal in wine. Each dish was amazing and we can't wait to return!

Went with friends for my husbands birthday. Hostess was rude. Food was good. Liked the atmosphere. The waitress asked us to leave because they had a reservation after us. We gave her a 25% tip and where still drinking our bottle of wine. Very rude. Have never experienced this before. Being asked to leave and we had only been there for 1 hour 40 minutes. Really? There are too many great choices in the area. They have lost our business. Super disappointed.

Do you think going to Louie Bossi‘s for a while now. The food is excellent. It is some of the best Italian food that you can find down here. The ambience is lovely as well, though I can be quite noisy. Overall it’s a very enjoyable experience. If you’re into real Italian food, this is the place to go down here!

My pasta was excellent. My two friends brunch items (eggs plus) were good but not excellent, they said. Our server, Alexa, was off the charts excellent, efficient, thoughtful, knowledgeable and pleasant to chat with. She deserves a bonus, or a promotion: don't let her go! She even got some water for our dog.

This was our fourth time there but the hostess was absolutely Rudd and it was the African American person and with us she now for the third time would not let us even talk. I had made my reservations always with anticipation and always requested our table but in her opinion the reservations is only for people NOT to wait? That according to her is her way or the highway!! Sad because everyone else was super nice.
When people out of town plan a visit there to either have a great time or impress someone with the great service we had the first time is very disappointed to be treated like garbage and I mean that!!! I have to mention that our server was great his name was Mauricio.
