The food is amazing at Louie Bossi and never disappoints. We loved the amazing garlic bread and the arugula pizza best. The radiatore alla vodka was amazing as well.

The place is always packed and the noise can be super loud especially with music in the background.

Also, they need support staff for their servers. Our server had a hard time keeping up with his tables and all of them were running. We waited for a very long time to receive dessert and coffee and he was a good server.

I want to preface this by saying I frequent Louie Bossi and Have always enjoyed the food, service, and have gladly waited 1-2 hours for a table as a walk in... BUT My last experience with their hostesses really just turned me off so much that I probably won’t be returning.

I had a reservation for three at 4:30 and I walked into the restaurant at 4:15. I tell the hostesses The reservation name and wait to be seated (the restaurant is fairly empty except the bar which is full due to happy hour) The hostesses proceeded to tell me that they will not seat me because I’m an incomplete party even though the table is ready and available and I am 1/3 of the party. The rest of my party is stuck in Las Olas traffic and I make a second attempt to please ask to sit at our table while I wait Fully intending on ordering a drink or two and an appetizer but I’m denied with an attitude. I end up waiting to be sat at the unoccupied table that was reserved for my party for 35-40 minutes while multiple walk-in parties get seated while receiving no service at the bar top.

My whole experience just getting in the door was poor business and poor hospitality. After I was finally able to sit and dine there were no complaints- our server was attentive and food was good but it didn’t make up for the bad first 40 minutes. I’m going to remove Bossi from my dining rotation

This was our second time at this place, and we truly love it! We have been in the beautiful terrace as well as inside now, and the experience is just marvelous. The service is outstanding, the food is delicious, and the vibe is just perfect. We can't wait to return! We have done lunch and dinner, so we might do brunch next :)

It must have been an off night. The whole experience was terrible. Appetizer never arrived, food was an 1 hour after ordering, just checking the check was a long wait. I don't think we will be returning. Not worth the premium prices.

We dine here a lot however they were so packed and overwhelmed tonight. Didn’t get my apps until 1hr and 15 min. It was so noisy kitchen was yelling over each other. I am sure they are having a hard time getting good labor these days. Place is also way too warm. We didn’t even know who our waiter was. Another waiter assisted thank goodness for him or we would have never gotten any service. We will go hack but only during the week. Weekends are way too hectic there. After over 2 hrs I couldn’t wait to get my check and leave. It’s a shame it should be a 5 star Resturant. Hats off to the chef his food is excellent !

First time at Louie Bossi and it was amazing. Our server was Bianca and she guided us through everything on the menu and even made suggestions.
Our absolute favorite was the charcuterie board that Bianca prepared specifically for us and the Brooklyn Caesar, both were out of this world. We also had the meatballs, rigatoni bolognese and a seafood pasta: everything was excellent. We finished the meal off with the fried donuts with Nutella and a tiramisu.
We can’t wait to go back!!!

I went to celebrate my birthday on a Friday night. We made a reservation and were seated within minutes. Our waiter was full of wine knowledge and had great food recommendations. I took this opportunity to try a new wine that I haven’t had before. It was a really great Italian red. They offer higher end wines by the glass that you usually only see offered bottle only. Make sure you get dessert. The tiramisu was so light and amazing ! I wish that I didn’t share it. This restaurant is a must visit while visiting the area. You can tell they work together as a team to give excellent service and food.

Visiting from Wisconsin. Loved the back garden area for ambience. Came on a Tuesday night and needed reservations. Had a great server but spent a lot more than expected. I am pretty sure there were happy hour specials that we had missed out on or that were not recommended. Good food and would return

We frequent Louie’s often, one of my favorite places. However, last night they seemed to have too few waiters for the active tables. After we were seated, we had to flag down another waiter after waiting 20min. Also, our actual waiter wasn’t every attentive. Still a great place, hoping last night isn’t a trend.
