“We liked this place”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This place was recommended by a friend who had spent time in Florence. We enjoyed our meals, but honestly, i can't recall what i had. Service was just ok, but we all thought it was an enjoyable place

“Spoilt”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had been here for lunch and were taken with the friendly service and excellent food. We decided to return for dinner and were pleasantly suprised that we were not only remembered but made to feel very special. Can't fault the service from Alessandro who was a real sweetie. Thank you

“Great Food & experience”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

The food was amazing. The staff was great, very outgoing to make sure you have a great experience. If you want a break from wine and like beer, they have a selection of local microbreweries, which were very good. I will definitely come back on my next trip to Florence.

“Nice location - good food - good service”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had dinner here twice while we were in Rome. The first time was after a long day of touring Chianti and La Bussola hit the spot - we shared antipasto and the nicest pizza we ate in all our time in Italy. We went a second time and had just as nice an experience - we shared antipasto and had pasta.
The restaurant is very busy - the staff felt a little stretched the second time but they were still attentive.
We ate in over 30 different restaurants in our 3 weeks in Italy we started to rate them based on overall value, quality of food and service and atmosphere - rating this many restaurants you want to be able differentiate the excellent and really good from the rest. This was a good restaurant we would go again but it was not one of the few 'stars' from our trip.

“Best pizza in Florence”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The place is really nice, if the weather stills nice and you're lucky you might get a table outside.
You can choose different things from the menu, my favorite were the pizzas.
