A word from La Bussola Ristorante
Genuine Italian charm & classic Italian cuisine is what you can expect at this popular restaurant, a landmark for 25 years. A beautiful wood bar leads you into the main dining room that is divided into two sections. Candlelight & fresh flowers on every table, complete the romantic, sophisticated atmosphere.

When you arrive, a combination of warm brick oven, semolina & raisin fennel breads are at your table. Each dish is prepared to order using the finest ingredients. Signature dishes are Osso Bucco, Veal Chop a la Bussola, Red Snapper Livornese, Chicken Campagnola, & Lobster alla Fra Diavolo. Homemade desserts are luscious Italian cheesecake, Napoleon, & their incredible tiramisu. An exceptional wine list features selections from Italy, California & Chile.

You'll receive a warm welcome from the owners & staff of this well established landmark serving authentic Italian cuisine. The professional wait staff, who has been with the family for many years, know the customers.

Diner Reviews
  • "We were charged $3 for a 1/2 glass of club soda. you had better ask the price of the specials before ordering. specials are pricey. food is noting exceptional. the corking charge is rather steep at 25; should be $20. wine by the glass was not very good. Probably would not go back. not a good value at all for the price. owner did not seem to care when we commented to him. My nephew also had a terrible meal there and the owner did nothing to try and correct it."

  • "We happened to be going to a wedding in Glen Cove and decided to give this place a try. The panzanella was good, but the risotto with scallops was delicious. They have a very small bar that we sat at and enjoyed talking to the bartender."

  • "this is a favorite from many, many years ago and having visited recently, the friendship holds true! Carlo is as wonderful as ever as is everything the kitchen produces. Veal, steak, fish, and especially pasta, all hit the spot. Desserts are a MUST. Service is top notch and everything from coats off to after dinner drinks is a delight!!"
