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.

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.

We were visiting from the west coast. We wanted great southern Italian food. We were so happy we found this restaurant. Excellent food and excellent service. We will be back our next east coast trip.

We had a large group but the dining room is spacious and well suited for large groups (we were across from a group of about 20, and next to another group of about 10. The food was delicious... the stuffed mushrooms were outrageously good! Everyone was happy with their meals - good solid Italian food!

Food was very good. Portions are huge!. Small means a normal, good size portion. FS means family size (not full size). The FS portions can feed 2 - 3. We had Veal Marsala, Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Bruschetta and Seafood Risotto. All in the small (individual) size. We took home at least another meal of two of the entrees. We started with Calamari which was well fried, not greasy, but needed salt. We were too full for dessert.

Valet parking made it easy as the restaurant is on a busy street.
