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.

The food was very tasty; decor leaves much to be desired; we waited an exceptionally long time for our order to be taken and our food to arrive; specials were overpriced

My entire party was disappointed with this restaurant. It may be that it was restaurant week so they didn’t care to impress or provide good food and service but everything we tried was from mediocre to bad. I went here thinking it was similar to the Piccolo restaurant on old country road in Westbury but I was wrong. I would not recommend this to anyone. We were placed in a dingy back room that left a lot to desire for. Overall bad experience.

Went there for restaurant week looking to plan an event price was right for the affair I was looking for. decided to taste the food had veal parmigiana which was at best very soggy the breading came off wasn’t crispy the bread basket tasted stale the salad over dressed was thinking my guest would probably opt for this meal. Was very disappointed. I’ve eaten at the other piccolo not sure if affiliated but food was far better. The restaurant wasn’t crowded yet so I can’t say it was busy

The best about this experience was Thomas he was delightful knowledgeable provided us with the information I needed. Unfortunately this will not be my venue

Late lunch for a large family group. Wait staff was helpful and friendly and although we did not mention a birthday directly to them, they picked up on the fact that that was what we were celebrating and treated our birthday girl to all the special trimmings. We stayed well after our meal was finished, but no one tried to hurry us out or push the check on us. We appreciated being able to relax and take our time.
