Louie's Italian Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: Ron Rosa, the restaurateur who brought Ecco and Campagnola to NYC, has delivered the neighborhood Italian trattoria prevalent in an earlier-era Brooklyn to Cos Cob. Named after Rosa’s uncle, Louie's embodies Mediterranean charm and emphasizes family dining with authentic recipes and traditional dishes. The hunter-green paneled walls of the dining room, and the dark wood and stone fireplace, create a warm, inviting atmosphere. The menu features a number of hot antipasti such as a grilled octopus, served over pinto beans seasoned with rosemary. Entrées like a hearty and home-style rigatoni with meatballs, sausage and pork rib in a marinara sauce and a classic veal Parmigiana served over capellini are consistently satisfying. The wine list highlights a number of regional Italian reds and whites that pair well with the menu.
