“Excellent fine dining, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I am not sure why there are some bad reviews as my dish was one of the best I ever had, (Spaghetti Bolognese), and I was super full when done. The staff catered to us very nicely and the ambiance was excellent. A bit pricey, yes, and without specials and we had to ask for some music to be put on in background but this makes for a great choice for a romantic night out. Maybe not a place for kids as we did not see a kids menu but a very good choice for couples.

Heard great things about la bussola from various people I know and I decided to try it out... It was just a disappointment. The service was terrible its like they forgot we were even there. The portions were small that we pretty much left hungry. I was really looking forward to it and now I wish I had gone else where.
