Louies is a remarkably
successful recreation of the ambiance of New Yorks Little
Italy section tiled floors, marble-topped tables, and cafe
chairs. The only hint you’re at Universal Studios is the cafeteria style serving area and the odd ceiling with its jagged edges and movie lights that remind you that the restaurant can do double duty as a film set.
The fare is standard Italian and just the basics. Cheese, pepperoni, and vegetable pizza is served by the slice or whole pie. Entrees include spaghetti and meatballs and fettuccine alfredo. Caesar salad and meatball subs round out the menu. There is imported Italian beer and wine as well as Bud and Bud Lite. In one corner of the restaurant, there is a counter selling gelato and Italian ice.
The quality is above average, as well, making Louie’s our favorite USF cafeteria. Louie’s is quite large and makes a good place to duck in out of the sun or rain for a rest.
Across from Louie’s, under the “Games and Amusements” marque, is a Starbucks serving coffee, cappuccino, and pastries, as well as a Ben & Jerry’s serving ice cream sundaes and smoothies.
