We were here on a night when a lawyer was giving a presentation behind a screen to s group of 20+ people. We could hear her the entire time - so much for ambiance. The service was very slow. The Caesar salad was average although the salad with pears was very good. I had the orecchiette with broccolini and sausage... More

Service was great. Didn't have to wait long for a table, but I recommend reservations for parties of 4 or more and if you want a seat outside (in warm weather!). Food was delicious and presentation was terrific as well.

My wife and I go there wanted a while. The food is very good Italian but it's quite pricey. We considered doing a christening there but they wanted almost of a price. As far as quality and food A+ but with the pricing for C.

We live in Sea Cliff and, like most, have our favorites among the MANY Italian restaurants in the area. As a result, It took us a while to try La Bussola. I am glad that we did - no surprises here, but the classics are prepared very well and the quality of the veal and fish was top notch. A... More

We frequent La Bussola for the tasty dishes and excellent, friendly service. The dining room is comfortable but we also eat dinner at the bar, David is the best! The over-sized Veal Chop Parm is my favorite, last time I had a taste of my husband's Soft Shell Crap Special....fantastic, Wines by the glass are hig quality and reasonably priced.... More

This is a wonderful restaurant that was such a nice surprise on a Saturday night. The reception we received was warm and so friendly. We opted to sit outside because of the great weather. A wonderful group of servers could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Wines were exceptionally good by the glass. Appetizers of roasted figs and another... More

You can not go wrong to bring a hearty appetite to this restaurant. Get the chopped salad and stuffed artichoke to start. The bread has been upgraded recently so try not to stuff you're face to early. The entree selection is superb. Not completely healthy but delicious.
