A very good choice in the center of heraklion, near all the hot spots of the town if you want to eat 'italian style' pizza. In this place you can eat a thin crusty pizza like it should be. We ordered also the 'bussola' salad...More

My family and I had lunch at La Bussola on a Sunday afternoon. We enjoyed watching people walking by while having the restaurant’s very good pizzas. We also had a Greek salad, which was also very good. I wouldn’t describe the restaurant as fancy, but...More
