A word from Piccola Bussola Ristorante - Mineola
After years of pleasing diners with huge portions of delicious home style food, Piccola Bussola opened its second location. At the entrance is a large inviting bar which leads into the main dining room. To the right is a more intimate dining room and for all your celebrations, we have a large party room. The Lubrano family, who have been in the restaurant business on Long Island for more than 25 years, greet customers with warmth and gracious hospitality.

Dishes at this "family style" restaurant are made of fine, high quality ingredients. The menu is made up of a wide variety of pasta, meat, chicken and seafood dishes. Wines are reasonably priced with many selections available by the glass. Homemade desserts include an outstanding pear tart and superb tiramisu. Service is friendly and efficient.

The Lubrano family - Pasquale and Raffaela and their sons Tony, John, Carlo and Marco welcome you to enjoy their wholesome cooking at all of their fine restaurants.

  • "We ate at Piccolo Bussola this past Saturday evening. We haven't eaten there in about a year. It often poses a problem with a large group because of noise. The restaurant was not overly noisy- good spacing between tables. The service was very good and our waiter, attentive. The dishes are served family style and there was plenty to go around. The house salad excellent- not the usual iceberg lettuce and tomato deal. Grilled octopus was one of my all time favorites anywhere, including Greece. We also shared shrimp marinara . There was chicken scaparella, sautéed broccoli. Everyone was satisfied. We tried desserts of course- tartuffo, biscotti and fresh fruit platter. Cappuccino 's first rate as well. Can't wait to return. "

  • "After reading the reviews I decided to make reservations here for my fiances birthday. We went during the week so the restaurant was nice and quiet. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We had the fried zucchini, it was very good and the marinara sauce had a nice hint of garlic, the buffalo mozzarella with red onion, roasted red pepper and tomato and baked clams-delish For the entrees we had the Penne Ala Vodka with chicken and broccoli, the steak Orregannati with melted mozzarella-Amazing When the owner came over and found out it was my fiances 50th birthday he had the waiter prepare a dessert tray with an assortment of cakes, assorted fruit, cannoli's and fresh whipped cream...Yum I give it five cannoli's :)"

  • "I always thought the best Italian food came from my kitchen at home but....a few years ago I happened upon Piccola and have been so impressed with the food, the atmosphere, the service...did I mention the food? I usually go to the one in Huntington but last visit was to Mineola...and it was great. The best Italian food on the Island."

  • "We chose this restaurant for my mother's birthday dinner based solely on online reviews. I couldn't have been more pleased. Our party of 13 was readily accommodated in a great location and our servers were knowledgeable and friendly. It really seemed like they pulled out all the stops. The food was delicious and there were plenty of options for all different dietary needs. The special ravioli with scallops was absolutely phenomenal. They brought us a complimentary champagne and strawberry toast for our special occasion and aside from being nice, it was the first champagne I've ever enjoyed. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate an occasion or have a nice dinner date with a loved one or friends!"

  • "I had passed this place many time and finally decided to give it a try. It is larger inside than my wife and I expected, and on Saturday night it was almost filled with happy people. We were immeditaly struck by how many large groups there were, indicating that locals know this to be a place for good food in a fun atmoshere. At first, each dish on the menu seemed overpriced by a few dollars.Ha! It turns out that this is a family styly resto, and you don't get a plate of food, you get a platter. We took home a ton of food! We shared the argula salad, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed artichokes, and Penne Pasquale. All were quite good. We plan on returning -- but this time, we'll bring others!"

  • "We're never disappointed when dining at the Piccola Bussalo group. We usually frequent the Huntington restaurant, due to proximity. That being said, Mineola's was just as good as the latter. The shrimp arreganata and veal sorrentino were very good. I did not partake, but my fellow diners enjoyed the seafood salad."
