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.

We had delicious dining experience at Piccola Bussola Ristorante - Huntington, the other night, with friends. Unfortunately there were 2 tables of large groups so it was a noiser than we would have liked. We enjoyed the family style dining though the waiter made an error with the vegetable and we had to send it back and there was an error on the bill (we were charged more on an item than the waiter told us it would be).

My father's 85th birthday dinner celebration. It was a perfect dinner for all. Our waiter was Henry, young, real nice, and very good, he was on top of everything, made sure we were ok a few times and if we needed anything during our meal. Overall service was superb- no complaints - food came out timely and very delicious. Staff very good and professional. A great big birthday dinner was enjoyed by all.

I had been here a few years ago, and was very pleased coming back. We had several out of towners with us and they enjoyed the food and ambience. Would definitely go back, and certainly would recommend this restaurant.

Excellent Family Style Restaurant with authent\ic Italian food. Their pasta dishes taste like home made. Service is very attentive and friendly. I had the Lobster special served over pasta/. The lobster oregenata was cooked perfectly and the lobster was fresh. The fried zucchini was the best I ever had. I would recomend this restaurant to friends and familyt

The food was fantastic best baked ziti I've had in a while the eggplant balls were surprisingly delicious glad we ordered them. The waiter was nice but perhaps overwhelmed with the large group next to us. Definitely a good place for a special occasion not only would I return but would recommend it

While the food was outstanding and the staff friendly, we waited FOREVER for our food. We were seated at 6:45 pm and did not see our entrees until 8:25 or so. There were many large birthday celebrations that night and I don't know if they were overwhelmed or what. They did "comp" us to a round of drinks for our trouble which was nice.

We dined at this restaurant several times. Their pastas are very good, like grandma used to make. The pasta with clam sauce and their special with lobster and shrimp was incredible.
However the wait for the first and second course is very long. If only they could speed up the
time to be served. The waiters are all very good, but the kitchen needs to be faster. If this could be improved i would recommend this restaurant

The waitor gave us our wine glasses with wine all over, he didnt bother to clean it up and it made the table look ugly. It could have stained my white sweater. In addition, he was giving everyone else some complimentary chocolates for valentines day when they paid the bill but he didn't give any to us. I wondered if it was discriminatory.

The sound level in this restaurant is very low and I could hear all of the conversation at the table. We ordered our food family style and shared a good Ceasar Salad, Penne Pasquale, and Chicken Campagnola which is the best Scapariella dish we've ever had...tons of dark meat chicken (special ordered that way and graciously accomodated) and sausage with delicious veggies in a brown sauce...Highly recommend this restaurant!
