Been there following trip advisor reviews! Following a beautiful entrance with a sea aquarium and a beautiful fish display choice, we had an amazing dinner. Staff was excellent and we enjoyed it to the full. Will definitely come back again in summer.

If you like fish and sea food, friendly staff, and a place where also kids can have good time, go to La Bussola. Wide enough selection of wine by glass, very fresh fish, simply but precisely cooked. This is not high gastronomy but one does...More
