Louie Bossi’s Ristorante & Pizzeria

With so many dining options in South Florida, sometimes it’s hard to choose a place for dinner.  Over the 4th of July weekend, we decided to spend the evening on Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.  We hadn’t been in a while and I wanted to see what new shops and eateries had opened up since our last visit, and then head over to the beach to watch the fireworks. I was surprised to still see some our favorite restaurants and delighted to discover some new ones.  Our daughter was craving her usual Italian food, so when we stumbled upon Louie Bossi’s, we decided to give it a try. I had not heard of it (they only opened up about a month ago), so I was a bit hesitant, after all, Italian places are always popping up everywhere, but many of them are mediocre at best.  Well this place is anything but mediocre.

We started off with a delicious appetizer called Coccoli Fritto, which were basically these delightfully soft baked flaky pita breads topped with fresh parmesan shavings and served with freshly made ricotta cheese, olive oil and prosciutto.  Heavenly!!  Hubby also ordered a small side of Marcona Almonds roasted with sea salt.

On to the main courses….I really wanted to try one of the pastas, but keeping faithful to my healthy eating habits of late, I decided on one of the daily specials..a grilled branzino prepared with olive oil, lemon and capers and I ordered a side of their grilled veggies.  This was one of the best fish dishes I have ever tasted.

Hubby decided on another one of the specials, lobster served with pasta.  Also delish!  And of course our daughter being her adventurous self (not), ordered a margherita pizza, but she says it’s also one of the best she’s had.  And trust me, she’s beyond picky.

Next, my daughter decided on a small dessert, Budino Cioccolata, a dense yet light tasting hazelnut pudding, topped with a light whipped cream and a bit of caramel and sea salt.  I couldn’t help myself and had a tiny taste….wouldn’t you:

Budino Cioccolata...heavenly!

And last but not least, hubby ordered his espresso and I had a creamy limoncello.  All I can say is that it tasted better than some of the limoncellos I’ve had in Italy!

So, if you’re in the Ft. Lauderdale area, head on over to beautiful Las Olas Boulevard and make sure you stop into Louise Bossi’s and experience an amazing Italian feast.  You will not regret it.

  1. Good Lord woman! you would have had to ROLL me out of there or they would need to have a bed in the back for me to take a nap! That ALL looked delish! When I find myself out there I will definitely be hitting Louie Bossi’s so thanks so much for sharing all that awesomeness. Now I totally want dinner early! 🙂

  2. I agree sometimes it is hard to decide a place when you have so many options. Louie Bossi looks like a great choice & the foods look so yummy & delicious. I just love that Marcona Almonds roasted with sea salt & that delicious Budino Cioccolata.
