This is the first review I have written, but felt compelled to do so after such a perfect visit.

My boyfriend and I decided to eat in this wonderful restaurant after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor.. And we are so glad we did. We got a pizza each, his with sheep cheese, cherry tomatoes and buffalo salami, and mine a vegetarian grilled vegetable pizza and we both decided these were the best pizzas we had ever eaten. The most expensive pizza was ?15 but there were plenty for around ?10, which is very affordable in my opinion, considering the quality.

The house wine was ?5 a glass but also very nice. We also ordered a selection plate of deserts, which was big enough to share and phenomenal. Eyes bigger than my belly for sure but so worth it.

Finished off with some limoncello, and all the way through every need being attended to by laid back but proffessional waiters with a brilliant sense of humour and very good English. What a fantastic restaurant.

We stumbled across this restaurant this evening - What a find!
The pizza was to death for! We decided to share the pizza - it come out already cut in half - to eliminate the fighting we were told by the very friendly waiter!! When we had finished - my girlfriend told the waiter that the chef - gave me 4 olives to her two! For that error on his part - a Lemonchello was presented to us! Great value for money and the food was delicious! We will be back........

We had a few pizzas to share- they were all unbelievably good!! We are all seasoned pizza eaters and this ranks as the best we've had anywhere (Australia/Italy). All other meals looked fantastic as well- good portion sizes as well as a very large selection of foods to choose from.

Highly recommend for everyone! Very cheap for such good food and family friendly.

This restaurant was one of two good recommendations by the staff at Hotel Pendini in Florence. The food here is excellent: well-prepared and well-presented. I had the seared tuna salad which was just delicious (and enormous) and my husband had the T-bone steak which was equally delicious and even more enormous. The wine was great value and the staff were helpful and friendly. Having rubbed the snout of the Firenze boar to ensure we return to Florence in the future(!), we'll be sure to return to La Bussola.

The service was great. Waiter actually talked me out of ordering the wild boar ragu as the season for boar had past. Opted for the steak ragu over pappardelle. Great recommendation! Two in our party ordered the seared tuna which was a good size portion and came with a side salad and potatoes. Not many entrees in Italy come with sides. We also had the pasta with smoked salmon. Excellent! Unfortunately we didn't leave room for dessert.
