It's a shame when they try to reinvent a classic cuisine like Italian. It has taken thousands of years to get right, so why change a winning formula. Small portions with multiple ingredients in well loved dishes makes them different, rarely better. Service was good if a little intrusive, prices were high for what we had. I would not go... More

We opted for the four course taste menu. Portions were sufficiently large so that we didn't feel overly full. The courses were well prepared and presented. Flavours were complex, yet delicious. The service was friendly, swift and efficient. Highly recommended.

The restaurant was a great experience. We managed to get a booking last minute as the retaurant we chose for my birthday dinner notified me it was closed on the day of the booking. Bussia definitely came to the rescue. We had a 6 course chefs menu and a recommended bottle of wine, which was also excellent. The table was... More

excellent modern take on traditional Italian fare. beautifully presented & served by our waitress who managed to combine the right balance of professionalism and courtesy with knowledge and friendly banter. the restaurant itself is sparsely decorated and scrupulously clean. well worth a visit.

The restaurant has a very nice interior. The food is not what you would expect from an Italian restaurant (and they claim "fine Italian dining"). In general the food is good and I would rather describe it as French cuisine, rather than Italian. However, the servant we had provided really poor service; she has no knowledge of the wines they...

I took my Italian boyfriend here and although the venison was excellent and the service was good, the cuisine was just mediocre. It was welll presented but nothing special in terms of taste and it was definitely not really to be considered Italian cuisine according to my boyfriend. The wine was decent (very expensive wine list). We felt like they... More

It may be expensive that it worths every peny.. The food was brilient, the service was highly professional with accurate recommendations, the setting minimal. Overall it was a great experience and if we had more time we would have gone there again!

We (eight of us) dined at the bussia on new years eve. They offered a special tasting menu for this occasion. The location of the restaurant is very good and the interior of the restaurant was very nice. As there was eight of us we were situated in their seperated dining room which was really nice. The service was amazing... More

We were staying around the corner from this restaurant last month while we were in Amsterdam. One rainy afternoon we decided to stop in for lunch and I can safely say that this was one of the best meals of our vacation. The atmosphere is chic minimalist, the service is professional, the food is outstanding and the wine list is... More

Wonderful meal, great presentation. Service was ok, but our waitress was a bit too familiar for my taste. And you don't pat customers on the shoulder imho. But all in all the food was great!
