Description: In the historic center of Ostia Antica, a few steps from the archaeological excavations, is La Bussola. The warm and cozy rooms offer a quiet and elegant atmosphere. Some claim the innovative cuisine, those who remain rigidly faithful to the tradition, but we propose a cuisine based on recipes and typical products of our country, who wants to reinterpret them and let you taste the Italian delicacies without ever being trivial. So we try to exploit the flavors and aromas typical of all our regions. Difficult to leave our room without having discovered or tried something new. And as the seasons our plates conform to the traditions of the territory.

La Bussola is a gem of a restaurant--extremely friendly, knowledgable, and accomodating service, very reasonable prices and, of course, the freshest and most delicious seafood any of us remember eating. The owner was so attentive to our table, customizing a menu according to our tastes. The mixed seafood platter antipasto was incredible, especially the octopus and squid, and the two pasta dishes he served, one with tuna and the other with shrimp, were outstanding. The meal was complemented with an excellent wine recommendation and a delicious white truffle gelato for dessert. And best of all, 4 people ate/drank very hearty, gourmet meals for only 110 Euros! Nothing but great things to say about La Bussola!!! DEFINITELY worth a try! It was the highlight of our trip.

You would not believe how delicious and tasty is the raw fish as well as pasta and all the rest. Good regional wines served at accurate temperature.
Surprising reasonable price. Daniele

This restaurant was a great find. We went twice and were impressed by the quality of food and service. The seafood specialties were delicious and made with fresh ingredients. The dessserts were especially made for us as we asked for "a surprise". It was a platter of baked tarts and sweets, very delicious. The hosts were friendly and the waitress always smiling. Our few words in Italian helped. One evening there was a party going on and we were included in the festivities. We would highly recommend this restaurant for the food, ambience and great prices. Go there!
