Food was good, service a little slow but that was fine as we wanted to have time to talk.
We went to celebrate my dad’s and my birthday. Heard good things about this place. While the food wasn’t bad. The service was horrible!!!!! First it took the waiter forever to come over and get our drink order. It wasn’t even busy yet. Then we he comes over he doesn’t even introduce himself, had a bit of an attitude. Then we get the dinner which took forever again. The waiter dissapears , maybe 20 mins. Never came over to ask if everything is ok? Do you need anything else? More Drinks? Then my dad didn’t get his pasta, when I asked the waiter about it, he says “it’s not my fault! It’s busy”!! So that’s when I called over the manager and told him what happened, he offer drinks or desserts on the house. We did take the desserts, but at this point it was too late. My husband also noticed the waiter stayed at others tables longer , maybe regulars .There were 9 of us and obviously he didn’t care about getting a good tip, so he didn’t get one. Being in the culinary business myself, I know how customer service works. While we were leaving the manager didn’t even apologize for the service. We won’t be going back.
Wonderful delicious food and great service
Very lovely neighborhood gem with great food and lovely attentive service. Don’t miss the Stuffed Mushrooms. Just delicioous
Valet attendants were very nice and friendly. That is the best thing I can say. Salad was brown and wilted, octopus was burnt or gooey. Main dishes were void of taste. Scallops weren't cooked properly and chicken dish was bad.
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
Very good food. Very good service. Very friendly wait staff and employees. Would recommend to anyone.
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.
Food was excellent but service was abysmal. Felt like we were abandoned.
Girls night was a great time
well done for an impossibly busy night all the food was done with care and taste and service was well balanced Gary.
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
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE AS ALWAYS SAT DOWN RIGHT AWAY AND FOOD WAS BROUGHT OUT PROMPTLY
Excellennt tasty food and large portions! Authentic Italian food. The grilled octopus was outstanding!
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.
I love this restaurant and have been coming here for years. Everyone I bring has loved it.
We have enjoyed this restaurant over the years. It is a great place to invite friends as the food is excellent and consistently good. The service is excellent, waiters are very attentive. Actually, it is our favorite restaurant!
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.
The best Italian restaurant in Nassau County! Food and service are superb!
I had a great time!
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.
From the moment we walked disappointment filled the air. This is NOT affiliated with La Bussola In Glen cove.
The food here is great. The service is a little slow but, the staff is excellent.
Excellent!!! Will be going back!
Food was beyond excellent. Service OK too- Monday night we were the only people there. Apps, Salad, Dinner, Wine - 13 people - could not even finish what we ordered. No room for desert either. Not one dish was less than amazing. We ordered everything. Bill came and I could not believe it $670 with a nice tip for 13 people - $50 PP total - cant beat it especially for a business dinner.
Nice place. Old fashioned Southern Italian food
We enjoyed the lunch very much...very attentive staff and quick too! You have a sense that everyone is well trained no on top of things.....the pasta sampler was the best!
We had a veal chop and a pork chop and both were great. The ravioli was not good. The Caesar salad was delicious. One dish did not go through with the rest of the order so the owner sent desert. The fish was a delicious oreganoto halibut.
Always a pleasure and never disappointing. Staff is very attentive and caring.
Have been going to this restaurant for so many years. Always good!
I have always loved the food, and that is why I return. This time it was very obvious, it needs a face lift. Room is old looking and has an odor. The bathroom was a mess. Not gonna visit again. Order to go. So you don't have to go. Sorry, love the food. Fix the place up
Our neighbor go to place, we love the food at Piccolo. Wait staff is friendly.
The food was excellent, service very good. The only thing I would suggest at this time is to update the decor & the bathroom.... looks very outdated & dingy.
Food is great, staff is friendly , our go to place
always a terrific meal. Baked clams and Shrimp parmigiana over linguine with some Chianti.
NY red sauce Italian comfort food at its best,
Great red sauce Italian food. Informal but with white table cloths. Portions come in individual or large sizes for sharing. I have never had a bad meal here.
I would highly recommend Piccola Bussola in Mineola. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive.
After trying I am having my daughters baby shower there
