We arrived a bit late for dinner and thought we would be turned away since the place was empty and it was almost time for them to close. They were extremely nice and served used delicious italian food and wine.

Went here for a family event- the staff is very nice and welcoming. The salmon was really the best I have ever had- perfectly moist and remember thy were cooking or a large group. Also had the Tiramisu which was light and delicious.

Five of us dined for the first time at La Bussola a few nights ago. We all thought the food was great and the service friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is very old school and most of the patrons seemed to be locals and regulars. Though we were not, we were treated with warm and welcoming service. By 7:30 p.m.... More

Inconsistent is the word that comes to mind as I think of my experiences at LaBussola Restaurant. We eat out a lot and love sharing an evening of Italian food with family and friends. Lately, the food and service has varied from very good to very bad seemingly with no reason at all. We've been to LaBussola on busy nights... More

The food came out in a timely fashion and servers did a very good job. We ordered numerous appetizers to share around... More

La Bussola has consistent excellence, from the moment you're greeted by Carlo at the door, with numerous specials. Excellent Ceasar salad, fish such as Dover Sole made in a variety of ways. Their veal chop ala bussola is the best I've had anywhere; it's thick and garnished with mushrooms & onions is to die for. Their Napolian is extraorinary, but... More
