Best things about his place are the location and the pizzas. Italian fare well worth the visit. Main meal a bit overpriced but the pizzas and pasta good value.

We walked to La Bussola one evening for a fantastic dinner! Service and staff were great and food was wonderful. Pasta and pizza were both great and received complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal. Highly recommend!

I'm giving this an average review because nothing was terrible, but it wasn't great either. The staff was very kind and we had decent service but the food we ordered just wasn't worth the price. The pastas were okay, but the fish entree left a lot to be desired. The pizzas looked good so maybe give those a try! They... More

We visited the restaurant whilst over in Antigua on my wifes birthday and they made us feel very welcome and even got the steel band to play happy birthday. Great food and even better wine.

The restaurant is... More

Love this restaurant. Go there every time I'm in Antigua. Food is excellent and all freshly prepared. Service is outstanding. Hats off to the two brothers who own it. Wonderful Lemon Cello at the end of the meal. Risotto is wonderful. Highly recommend it.

The setting and food was very nice. The kids had the pizzas, which I must admit very good. Their tiramisu and Creme brulee was also very good. Very friendly staff. it would have made a great lunch place if they were open ( probably would have put coconut grove out of business). Get the pizza if you go.
