Taste of meal was good but to pricing for what we got. Meal came warm instead of hot and the small fish portion I ever received being scallops. Love the ambience!

Good Italian food in great surroundings.
Love the outdoor patio garden, creates such atmosphere. Food was good, we were a party of 5 and 4 of us had pizza which was pretty good.
5th person in our party had the branzino, which was scrumptious, only bad part is that it was a la cart.
Service was okay.
Definitely will be back.

The setting is great, the right lighting and ambiance. Servers will go out of there way to please and the food simply delicious!

My wife has food allergies and they made sure to make the necessary adjustments on their preparations, enough to say the experience was AAA.

Food and service were outstanding. Its very claustrophobic if youre sitting at a table near main entrance. Everyone waiting to be seated congregates and surrounds your table

The food was good and so were the bellinis. We also got seated quickly since we had a reservation. The only issue was that our server took forever to come to us initially and he wouldn't check in with us often. That made the experience subpar. I would still recommend to a friend and possibly visit again, I just hope I have a different experience the next time.

My birthday celebration was amazing. The food delicious starting with the coccoli Frito made with ricotta and prosciutto, then risotto with seafood, bronzini and homemade pasta. Our waiter brought the most delicious tiramasu with a flaming sparkler. Our waiter was fabulous !

Had a mixed experience. The hostess who greeted us was incredibly rude and left us with a horrible first impression. I made a request on OpenTable for a table in the “Garden” and this was not captured by the restaurant. The table in the garden not being available was less of an issue. The way the hostess treated me was unacceptable. Borderline punitive. Rudely turned her screen around to prove to me my “note was not on their end” checked the garden almost in a defeated way to see if any tables were available and then said “you’re welcome to go check yourself sir”
“Would you like the table we do have available or would you prefer to wait for the garden??? If you wait for the garden it will be like an hour”. She said these last words as if punishing I the patron who expected more! Other than that we had a great time. Our server Mike was cool and the GM Mike who came to check in on me after his horrible hostess greeted us, was a very nice guy. Hostess needs to go!

Very expensive mediocre food. The service was excellent! Michelle was fantastic! The courtyard is beautiful but VERY loud! A few drunk people, which means they are over served and disrupts the other guests trying to have a romantic evening.

The food was delicious, but the service was not as exceptional. We ordered a glass of wine to have with our meal, but by the time the waitress brought our wine we had already finished our meal. We were left sitting with two pricey glasses of wine along with the check. It was very busy, and our waitress was having a difficult time keeping up with the pace of the restaurant.

Took way too long to get our order in after we ordered cocktails. Waited 45 mins, then complained to manager who took our order and comp'd our apps, which helped ease the pain. Dinner was otherwise excellently prepared. Would try again. But I would screen the menu and give your entire order from apps and drinks to main dishes from the get-go as soon as server makes their presence at your table.

I have been to this restaurants Evers last times but tonight was a disaster. The service was horrible, appetizers arrived before our drinks, red wine was spilt down my back, took four requests to get grated cheese for our dinner, coffee arrived but no spoons, dessert never showed up. When the bill arrived they never even comped the drink they spilt all over me. In fairness when I mentioned it to the manager after we paid he offered to do something but at that point it was too late. I definitely wouldn’t go here on a Sunday night during the busy season in Ft Lauderdale!

I thought an early Sunday dinner reservation to celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary would be good, but it turned out to be a nightmare. We were placed in a bad area of the restaurant. The traffic of people and waiters and the noise made it for a bad experience. My husband and I could not even have a conversation because of the noise factor. The amount of people walking around our booth was insane. We could not even finish eating our meal, so we packed it up and left. Our waiter, though very nice, looked overwhelmed. We have been here several times, but this by far was the worst experience we have had. All other times they would have scored 4-5 stars. Food is really good.

Most of the meal including the Bologese was terrific.

The chicken parm was only one small piece and too thick. It seems they don’t even want to serve it because of the price point and god forbid if you ask for pink Sauce. That’s evidently frowned upon. Geez, it’s not like dinner for two is less than a $100 here, just do it.

Food was excellent! Host staff passed between tables which are situated close together multiple times with iPad/lap top watching diners for timing of tables opening up. Instead of a texted dining experience I felt we were being “watched.”

We drove all the way from Naples to eat here and it was a disappointment. I ordered the Pasta in the vodka sauce. There was no mention of hot peppers in the dish. When we questioned it, the waiter said sorry and moved on. Did nothing to improve the situation. Took my boyfriend ordering 3 different types of beer to have one available. Outdoor courtyard was extremely loud with drunk people yelling following the bottomless brunch. Waiter was slow and inattentive.

Love Louie Bossi, service and food is fantastic; however, my preference is the Boca location. Las Olas location is super noise to the point you can't have a pleasant conversation and that is not good.
