One of our all-time favorite restaurants. Everything including the menu, the specials, the wine list, the service and the ambience are all first rate.
Great menu, excellent selection. Food is always good and the serviceis friendly, attentive & above par.
We were a group of five, getting to know each other. They gave us plenty of time - did not rush us. The manager stopped at the table and answered our questions about the dishes and ingredients. Food was great - fresh and well prepared
Service was spotty. It took a long time to take our drink order. Then the wrong appetizer came out . Food was good. It was very crowded then when crowd subsided service got better
Old school Italian that never fails to Please. Real classic Italian restaurants are a dying breed. There is a reason why this wonderful restaurant has survived for 42 years! Highly recommend.
We took a chance to get a quick early dinner without reservations and they couldn’t have been nicer. They gave us a beautiful table and treated us like family, the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The service was amazing and they just couldn’t have been nicer to us. We just loved every bit of our experience there! Thanks again.
Ate outdoors on a concert nite - nice meal, great experience
Love la bussola. Very consistent. Carlo is the best.
Nice menu, a good selection on the specials. Not many substitutions offered. We shared a buratta and tomato appetizer and it was delicious. we both ordered Branzino, whole fish that was out of this world. For dessert, coffee and a shared tartufo. The tartufo was also wonderful. It had strawberry and pistachio ice cream covered in dark chocolate.
I am looking forward to dining there again.
AMAZING! halibut over zucchini noodles. I loved it !! So fresh , perfectly cooked and very large portion
Excellent food & over the top attentive service. The menu is great, so many great choices & all of them delicious. Best eggplant meatballs. Whole Bronzino was amazing!
It was a fun night, thanks for having us!! 😁
Great time, great food.
Carlo is a gentleman and we’ll definitely be back

Lovely Experience!! The owner and his son were very polite, sweet and helpful. I am a wheelchair bound individual and they went above and beyond to make everything was comfortable and accessible for me during my experience. I am very appreciate and will definitely go back for more!!
One of our favorite places to dine
Food Service & Staff are wonderful & a pleasure
One of our favorite places to dine. The food is always delicious. Went recently with our cousins and they really enjoyed their dinner.
Outstanding as always since 1979 or whenever they opened!
Great food, good service a definite must go. Always a pleasure.
Made reservations for Mother’s Day brunch. Food and service are always great! Will definitely be going back.
We hadn’t been to this restaurant for quite a while and we were welcomed
by the staff and were given excellent service! We will be back!
The food was very good!
Wonderful restaurant with a terrific staff.
First problem: when I arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday evening, they had no record of the reservation I made on Open Table. Fortunately, the owner was able to find us a table.
The food was excellent.
The service was very slow. Our party of three were in the restaurant for over 2 hours. We had to search for the waiter to get a round of drinks. At one point, I asked the busboy who refilled our water glasses to ask our waiter to come over.
But the food really was excellent.
Best service. Best food in glen cove.
Service was handled very well. Food was outstanding with our party of 4. We order 4 different meals and everything was completely satisfied. We were seated on time and enjoyed the timing or our meal from drinks to coffee. The wine list was great and realistic.
Excellent food and service. Made to feel welcome
It was a great night!!!
The food had absolutely no flavor. It was a huge disappointment
Had Easter dinner there with family. Great service, great food. Looking forward to returning.
It was a great night. We both had so much fun. Thanks for having us!! ☺️
Lovely restaurant, excellent classic Italian food & service
Food was outstanding ,service however was lacking appeared to be disorganized.
One of our all-time favorite Italian restaurants. Been dining here for more than 25 years.
Excellent meal, everything was delicious. Very attentive wait staff.
The food was spectacular. However the particular server that we had was extremely slow. We were there for over three hours because the timing in between food courses was so long.
I would still highly recommend this restaurant even though we had slow service because I have been to this restaurant many many times over the years I never had any issues and the food was always on point!
The food is always amazing! Fresh and delicious everytime. My favorite place to eat. Service is excellent.
Still the best restaurant in town!!
