“Consistenly outstanding service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2011

La Bussola has consistent excellence, from the moment you're greeted by Carlo at the door, with numerous specials. Excellent Ceasar salad, fish such as Dover Sole made in a variety of ways. Their veal chop ala bussola is the best I've had anywhere; it's thick and garnished with mushrooms & onions is to die for. Their Napolian is extraorinary, but reserve it when you get there since they do run out.

“a safe bet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2010

The food was quite delightful. I had the Chicken Parm and enjoyed it very much. Not much else to say. This is definitely a safe bet on a dinner place.

“Your tastebuds will love you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2005

My husband and I first experienced the food at LaBussola when we received a gift certificate as a wedding present. I had the filet mignot and am still raving about it. We loved it so much, that we have made in our anniversary spot and go back each year. The service is good and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. Glen Cove is a city full of great restauants and this is one that should not be missed.
