A word from Piccola Bussola Ristorante - Huntington
A trip to Piccola Bussola will remind you of mama's home cooking both in quality & quantity. With oak paneling, stained glass wall sconces, tones of beige, & forest green & cinnamon carpeting that creates a comfortable ambiance. Our handsome bar is a great place to enjoy a drink before you are seated at this popular restaurant.
Chef Felix Girasaki, from Peru, started at La Bussola (our sister restaurant) in 1982. He was trained by owner Pasquale Lubrano, & is now the chef at Piccola Bussola. The wait staff is totally professional, & many of them have been with the restaurant since it opened.
All the selections on the menu are served family style on a platter rather than a plate. Desserts are as large as the entree selections! Our tiramisu is believed by many to be the best on Long Island. Wines are reasonably priced with an excellent house Chianti available.
A steady clientele of devoted regulars, & families that enjoy casual dining, make Piccola Bussola a favorite.

  • "This was our second visit to this restaurant as we do not live in the area. If we did live nearby we would be regulars. Everything about this restaurant is excellent. Our only complaint about this visit was the service was not as attentive as it should have been considering it was a weeknight and they were not that busy. Food was excellent. The roast beet salad was great and the Osso Bucco very flavorful and tender. Be sure to order half portions for two people to share as there is more than enough. Had desserts on our first visit and they were excellent but I do not remember what we ordered."

  • "We have been to this restaurant a couple of times before and have always enjoyed ourselves. Unfortunately, we were disappointed this time. The food was not as good, kind of bland tasting and the service was fair. We waited along time in between courses without being checked on and when our entrees did come it seems as if it was an effort to serve them. "

  • "First time to this restaurant. Looked nice upon walking in, but Friday night at dinner time and the place was empty. That was the first clue. Service was excellent because there was more wait staff then customers. The food was terrible. The pene ala vodka tasted like Mac and cheese, and the rigatoni bolognese tasted like jar sauce with chopped meat added. Will not be trying this place again."

  • "Would recommend to a group of 4 or more since the portion sizes are huge. Food was great. The veal was tender and not stringy. The Fra Diavolo sauce had a nice kick to it. The seafood was fresh. The baked clams were tasty and I was able to dunk my bread into the baked clams juice."

  • "We were here a year ago and loved the food. This time food was bland. Last time, the place was packed. This time it was empty. Not sure if they changed chefs or if it was just a bad night but judging by the lack of crowd, seems like things not as good as they used to be. Staff was very pleasant and helpful."

  • "Have been eating at this restaurant for 20 years and it is always consistent. Great food and wonderful service. They wouldn't still be in business in Huntington unless they had great food."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "We had lunches and dinners in this restaurant before and the food is always good. Since we had a small party of six for our son birthday dinner, we decided to have family dinner in Piccola Bussola. When we arrived, we were asked to sit at the table in the inner corner or wait for another half hour. The restaurant is not busy at all and should put small tables together to accommodate. Our children do not want to wait and so we sat in that small table at that inner corner. It was so uncomfortable and cramp for six people. ! The food is good for Italian family food. The service is not attentive as it should be. The restaurant management is usually good in details and Hope this is an isolate incident."

  • "Food was great. You get more food than you would expect based on the prices. Pricing outstanding especially since your getting so much food. ( I know it was a redundant comment but its worth noting it twice). I would recommend at minimum their location in Huntington. I'm looking forward to trying out the other two locations as well"

  • "Our department wanted to take our manager, along with spouses, for a nice quiet dinner on the occasion of his retirement. This was a personal effort - not to be reimbursed by our employer. The dinner was great in a nice quiet setting that facilitated having conversation. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. the overall experience was fantastic and the cost was lower than expected."

  • "We frequent the request regularly, but for the month of November they are promoting "rollback Tuesdays" to commemorate their 20th anniversary. A special menu rolls back pricing to 1993. Quantity, quality and excellent service each time we visit. This month, lower pricing has been added. No matter what we order on the menu, the food is delicious."

  • "My husband and I shared the Pasta Pasquale. We loved it and even had some to bring home. We had the stuffed mushroom appetizer and that was also delicious. The coffee was excellent and we shared a delicious cannoli. We enjoyed the meal from start to finish. I would definitely go back."
