Thats how good it is. The first night, we called in for a nightcap on our way back from people-watching at Santa Croce. We only wanted a drink but when we saw one of their speciality pizzas, we decided to have a try. Pear, Walnut and Honey....ON A PIZZA. It was a taste sensation. So, we went back the following...

This place was really close to our hotel and we originally dismissed it. However, one night we were tired and decided to try it and wish we did sooner. They had the best Caprese salad of our trip, mozzarella was excellent. Their pizzas were also good. Overall the staff was very helpful and the service was excellent. We went here... More

After some heavy duty shopping and sight seeing, we needed a glass of wine, and this place looked lovely. We sat at the bar, and had 2 healthy pours of their house rose and prosecco. We weren't hungry, unfortunately, as everything we saw other diners eating looked delicious. We watched a pizza master make several pies, with ease and precision... More

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. It was a little late for dinner (10pm), but the place was lively and thriving. We got a great seat outside. After being recommended great wine, we enjoyed a fantastic pizza to share. One note - the restaurant is a little tucked away in a piazza, and the cars parked... More

We round this restoratie by accident walking through the city. Were attracted by the tripadvisor sign outside the window. It was worth it. Very friendly, effectieve staff - food is good - wine nice (even per glas).

We visited La Bussola on a Saturday evening. Sadly, the outside area was full, so we sat inside, but no problem. There was a very extensive menu and wine list. I had Mozzarella and Napolitana sauce with basil and olives for a starter, followed by duck breasts (two!) with fois gras. My wife had a starter of Mozzarella with sliced... More

After walking around Florence and visiting Michelangelo's David, I wanted to eat what the Italians eat, not what the tourists eat. I asked a few people who worked in shops around the area and they all agreed that La Bussola was a good place to eat. Little did I know that I would stumble upon the BEST Seafood soup I... More
