    I made this reservation for my daughter and her father explicitly asking for outdoor seating and letting them know it was my daughter’s birthday. They get there on time for their 7pm reservation (btw if you are more than 5 minutes late they won’t hold your table unless you notify them). The hostess told them a table was leaving and they’d have their table within 5-10 minutes. 45 minutes later thaley still hadn’t been seated and left. At 8.15pm they get a text saying the table is ready!!!! I called to complain and finally, after 10 minutes waiting on line, I get to speak to a manager who had the nerve to tell me my daughter had refused a table on the front patio and wanted the back one only. I then confirmed with my daughter that that was NOT the case and hadn’t been offered ANY table. I tried phoning the manager back only to be told she was busy and would phone me back. I’m still waiting. Not only did they ruin my daughter’s birthday but they labeled her a liar. Unfortunately this is a popular restaurant (I’ve never been but had heard good things about it) so this review is probably worthless but I’m sure this isn’t the first time. They obviously gave the table to regulars.

    There were 6 of us and our experience was great. Our server was one of originals there and he was knowledgeable and had a story for everything. His recommendations were good. We sat out back on the patio which was nice. We started off with meatballs, calamari and a meat & cheese board all very good. Our meals were great with the freshly made pasta. Their bolognese sauce, the far dial sauce both great. Highly recommend this place for a nice dinner

    Excellent food.....great vibe. Terrible service. Never once got our water refilled… Basic. And overall, the server was not friendly either. Unfortunately, that affected our night, but the food was indeed quite good. Hopefully management addresses this and make sure that servers who work there actually enjoy serving their customers!

    I have always enjoyed dining at Louie Bossie. The food is well prepared and very tasty. The Sunday Brunch is great but the best thing about the restaurant is the great service. I have never had a negative experience when eating there. Great attitude from everyone that you meet. They all seem to be having a good time and that spreads to the customer having a great time. Highly recommended

    I've been here before and really like their pizzas and starters - always a hit. Last time around, though, the pastas weren't quite hitting the mark for me or my friends. They felt a bit overcooked, and we tried quite a few (six different kinds, to be exact). Even with a reservation, the place was packed, and we ended up waiting for almost an hour to get seated. Once we did, it felt super cramped and a bit like we were all squeezed in together. With the restaurant being so busy, the service ended up being a bit slow and seemed rushed. It wasn't the best time I've had there, but also not the worst. I think a few tweaks here and there, especially with the pasta and handling busy times, could really make a difference. Looking forward to seeing how it goes next time!

    We had the best experience at Louie Bossi! We went to brunch for my bachelorette trip and the service was absolutely amazing. Our server was super attentive and surprised us with a dessert to say congratulations. He even wrote us a list of things to do to visit in Fort Lauderdale! He made the experience amazing. The food was also amazing and great portion sizes. The outdoor patio was such a cool ambiance and just an overall really great experience. Would definitely recommend!

    We’ve dined many times at Louis Bossi. This experience was our worst - server was very inattentive - only showed up to take the order and provide the check. We asked for items that she didn’t provide, we had to flag down other servers who ended up fulfilling our requests. The food was sub-par for all four of us - 2 of them were the Carbonara which had always been excellent in the past.

    Had a 7:30 reservation for 4. When I checked in the host offered me a very small table with couches which I refused. We are a group of 4 older adults and could not dine at a table like this comfortably. The host then tells me I will have to wait on a table since I refused this table. Once we did get seated, it took forever to see our waiter. It took forever for our food. We told the waiter we were celebrating a birthday and the waiter asked what flavor ice cream. I told him vanilla. He never brought out the birthday dessert. Very disappointed with the service from the time we walked into the restaurant.

    Very dissapointed in our lunch here. While the chaucuterie board was delicious, the pasta dishes we all ordered were tasteless and bland. The waiter brought me the wrong drink. I then had to ask 3 times for a side of cranberry juice to fix the drink. My glass of rose was forgotten as well. Had to ask a second time.
