We happened upon this place based on our location and goggle reviews and the Tuscan Pizza #2 was superb - pear, pecorino, walnuts, and honey - Yum! Our waiter Antonio provided great service!

During my stay I went to La Bussola twice. I had the same pizza both times but tried my friend's food as well. Everything was delicious and I definitely recommend paying this place a visit.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
