My first time at Louie bossis and won’t be my last! Had the penne alla vodka and being from the northeast and Italian I am not easily impressed but I was blown away by the quality of their cured meats and dishes. Five stars all around

I hadn’t been in a long time and sad to say I won’t be going back anytime soon. The service was very slow. Our server seemed very taxed and overwhelmed, though pleasant. As for the food - the calamari was greasy and lacked flavor. The mushroom pasta dish was good but arrived lukewarm warm. 16oz ribeye was not impressive. Brussel sprouts were tasty. Charcuterie board was good, but VERY expensive. A nice splurge but not sure I would do it again. The restaurant was very loud so if you are looking for a place to have meaningful conversation while you eat, I would not recommend it. Would go back on a Monday (1/2 off martinis) or Wednesday (1/2 off bottles of wine) but not for dinner. :-(

I love this restaurant but it was crazy busy and everything was not good. Too busy and extra loud and slow service. We go all the time. This was weird how busy it was and how slow service was. Not sure why

La comida estuvo divina solo que conseguí un cabello blanco en mi pasta obviamente se disculparon. El lugar es súper acogedor pienso que los mesoneros tardan mucho en servir un servicio de vino, íbamos a mitad de nuestra cómoda cuando nos dieron el vino. Realmente son cosas corregibles

We love Louie Bossi and have been coming for years. This last time though was far from what has kept us coming back. Service was awful. It took over 20 min to get our drinks, and we only got them because the manager saw us waving to our server. Our server was so busy with the rest of this tables he was servicing that he only popped by when he was doing something for them. He came by with parmesan for my pasta when I was practically done, we had to ask three other servers and bus boys for bread and vinegar, and when the time came for dessert he said: “It will take at least 20 minutes so I don’t recommend you order any dessert.” So yeah, pretty disappointing. The food as always, though, perfect.

I’ve always loved this restaurant food & ambiance, but this time it was below my expectations. It was overcrowded - the majority of customers were walking around without a mask on - , the service was very poor - our server kept chatting with friends of him that were sitting next to us every now and then as if he was off - and the noise was too much. I felt like I was in a pre-pandemic club.

Everything is great over here. They make everything from scratch. Their pizza dough is the lightest I've ever tasted. You can eat pizza all night and not be full. All of their cured meats are great especially the picante. Delicious!

We were in town for a getaway and we stopped in here on our first night in town. There was a 2 hr wait but found a quick seat at the bar (we prefer sitting at the bar) we had fantastic service and all the food was so fresh and delicious! We just had an all around great experience both times! Me made it a point to go back a second time before we headed home. We prefers the west side of the state but any time we’re in Florida we will be making a special trip to Louie Bossi! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We are regulars of this place. This time we had family visiting and we wanted them to have the experience, we love the food and the patio area. Again, the host at the front, rude as always. We had a reservation for 5 pm, she said she was going to give us the table, but we had to give it back at 7, because she had a large party to accommodate. Pretty much we were kicked out before sitting down. The place was crowded, no social distancing at all. Our waiter was a sweetheart but couldn't keep up with all those tables. My husband had to go look for him at least 3 times, and again, we could tell he was working hard, we could tell they had a short staff. I felt bad they put their employees in that position. We finished our dinners before 7 and didn't stay to find out of they were actually going to ask us to leave. It is a shame, I hope next time we go, they make it right. We love the food and the place itself, we always get great service from our servers. However, management needs to put it together.
