In this time of virus Louie’s was very safe in there spacing, cleaning and having staff wear face masks. As always the food, service and wine was a step above.

Our waiter Drew wasn’t only the best, but the best we’ve ever had anywhere. More than accommodating, nearly customized everything to our liking and was nice enough to recommend some honeymoon spots. The food was excellent but he was exceptional. It was all Worth the price.

Food was amazing. My wife had the short rib raviolis and I have the chicken pizziola. We started with the Italian salad. Generous portions and fantastic food quality.

With that outside on the patio due to the pandemic and it was a very nice experience overall.

5 star review..... even with a table in the grass to conform to CT guidelines. You will need a mask if you need to go to the restroom as well as to check in- FYI

Was able to eat outside now that CT is allowing outside dining! The staff was practicing all of the CDC guidelines. Dining there was relaxed and a much welcomed back to “normal” experience!

5 star experience all around, my favorite restaurant!Outdoor dining on a beautiful patio with umbrellas for the sun and space heaters at night. The cocktails are amazing, best margarita ever! Everything from the Lavender Collins to the espresso martinis taste delicious. amazing house wines. Great appetizers, try the filet mignon carpaccio and the burrata. Gorgeous entrees, Chicken Louie’s is a must try - chicken breast with white wine, butter and lemon finished in the oven with asparagus and Parmesan cheese! Short rib ravioli, rigatoni nonna, jumbo shrimp fra diavolo , I’m getting hungry thinking about it!! Top it off with house made tiramisu or Italian cheesecake

Great service, set up adorably for this time. Heaters outside. Waiter was a great bartender, recommend spicy strawberry margaritas. Food was great but definitely a bit over priced. Other than that wonderful experience.

The lobster raviolis were out of this world...and with all the extra lobster, shrimp and scallops on top! And after dinner I highly recommend the Espresso Martini with just a "tad" of Bailey's...best I've ever had!!!!

First visit here, but it won’t be my last! Exceptional food and service. Excellent Italian food that was enjoyed by everyone in my party. Nona’s rigatoni was delicious, as was the veal. Great daily special selections, too. Definitely check this restaurant out; you won’t be disappointed!

Have been going to Louie’s, Cos Cob location forever. Just learned about Darien location within the last six weeks. And, the restaurant has been open for about two years? Someone should be shot for very poor advertising.

If you are looking for an easy kick back place where the food is very inviting, service truly outstanding, and you don't have to give away your first born as far as price Louie’s is the answer. We started with the Caesar Salad followed by the Chicken Romana and my wife had the Linguine & Clams in a white sauce ---- we finished off with the desert special, a crème Brule cheesecake. Bottom line I would not have changed a thing and frankly I liked my entree so much that I will order the same when I go back. On the flip side, you should understand that there is a large bar crowd so if you sit in the bar area (as we did) it will definitely be noisy---so request a seat in the dining room. I would encourage all that I know and those that I don't to give Louie's a try ---- you will not be disappointed.

The service was outstanding. It was New Years Eve so it was very busy. We have been there before. As always the food was great. We always get the hot antipasto, one of our favorites dishes at Louie’s. We were the last to leave but weren’t rushed at all.
