The last great old school dining experience in Kelowna. Do yourself a favour and have a slow dinner. Turn off your phone. In fact, leave your phone at coat check. Eat 3 or 4 courses. Order some incredible wines from their expansive list, full of lots of great back vintages and some off-beat European varietals.
Enjoy the ridiculously attentive yet unobtrusive service. Your water glass will always be full. You will never be interrupted mid-bite. The servers and Mike the somm know exactly what they are doing.
Oh yeah, Lauretta, she is awesome, het food is authentic and amazing. Get it already.
Great service and food as always
First time and will be back for sure. Michael and Cody have that old school charm and demeanor. Felt like kings and queens. Cocktail choices were plentiful and SUPER tasty. Celiac awareness for me was awesome and appreciated. Food was flavorful with a balance of savory and just good ol "mama's taking care of me" home cooking. Will be back 100%
La Bussila is in our opinion the best restaurant in Kelowna
We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate a birthday. The only complaint was that it was VERY cold in the restaurant. Our entire group couldn’t warm up for the entire meal. Everything else was wonderful!
Food was amazing! Service was slow.
Chairs were uncomfortable. No lumbar. Tiramisu had no hint of alcohol.
Steak was not very tasted. Had grissol.
No Christmas tree.
Menu was over priced.
Fantastic meal. The food was awesome. Server was very friendly and helpful
We spent a fabulous evening with friends celebrating the holiday season. As we don’t have any Christmas parties to attend this year, this was our Christmas party.
It was perfect in every way. Thank you to all the staff, you are the best.
Wonderful dining spot. Service was top of the line. Very professional.
Will definitely go back.
Unfortunately this was a disappointing evening celebrating our anniversary. The value of the cost of the meal was not there. I ordered the veal masala which was very good, but the serving size was very small and served with a few veggies and no pasta. There wasn’t the option of having pasta on the side either. My husband had the lasagna which was excellent but our server didn’t mention it to us and it’s only because we heard another server at the next table offer it so my husband had to go find our server to ask for it, not impressive! I can’t see us returning. I understand their menu was limited due to availability of supplies because of the recent weather storms but adding a little pasta on the side could have been included and would have gone a long way to keeping us as customers.
We eat at La Bussola on a regular basis. The food and service always impeccable!!
Wonderful food. Wonderful service. Thanks for a great date night. Will be back!
Always love the food my favorite place to go!
Thank you for never being disappointing.
Plus the best lattes in town
Birthday dinner just excellent value as usual
Fantastic homemade Italian food. Small menu which is sometimes a bit repetitive, but everything is so good, and there are always feature items. They have just a couple of vegetarian options. Prices are getting steep, but it seems to be everywhere these days. A lovely restaurant for a special meal.
We celebrated my Dad’s birthday here yesterday and enjoyed an awesome meal. Our waiter was so helpful and patient and the food was outstanding. I hope I can return again soon!!
La Bussola dining is such a wonderful experience. Not many places these days make the experience of dining an event. Beautiful ambiance, soft music, beautiful table setting, and warm friendly greeting to begin.
Good menu and excellent food.
Thank you La Bussola for being there
Few options were not available but understandable given the supply situation happening. Staff was friendly and food was very good. Price value was okay, not terribly expensive for the quality.
Excellent service, flavourful food including appetizer & good portioned entree’s. We left feeling well served and enjoyed the food & wine immensely! One of a kind dining experience!
Very pleasant restaurant. Food was very well prepared. Staff very helpful.
What a lovely evening. Always a pleasure and memorable.
The dinner was delicious and relaxing.
The service was fantastic and the salmon is one of the best I have ever had!
Best family we owned restaurant!
Great service and food the best in Kelowna,We will be back
This was our first time at this restaurant and we will return. A good place for a relaxing end of week meal or a outing with friends.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. Had fresh catch of the day salmon -- best ever melt in your mouth with perfectly crisp yet cooked vegetable side medley. The lasagna was perfect as well -- dense, melt in your mouth experience. Give this class act restaurant a try; you won't be disappointed. In fact, you'll be out of this world glad you did. We gave a 30% tip, which is saying something.
Great restaurant. Amazing food and great service.
Service was excellent and the food was fabulous. Somewhat pricey.
First time to this restaurant! Very nice ambiance. Food is very good, lots of choices with a few feature dishes presented. The service was a bit disjointed, good but we were waiting for our server lots. Nice wine list, would be nice to view both the wine list dinner menu online beforehand but not the end of the world.
Great food and fantastic wine selection.
Great food, people and wine - just an enjoyable evening
Amazing dinner and the service with Josh us always top notch. We love going there for dinner as the food is always consistently good.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS LIKE ALWAYS OUTSTANDING, IF THERE IS ONE SMALL COMPLAINT IT IS THAT WE HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME BEFORE OUR ORDERS WERE TAKEN AND AGAIN IT TOOK A WHILE BEFORE WE HAD OUR FOOD SERVED
Excellence in both service and food. we were seated immediately on our arrival.
Excellent food. Great service. Nice atmosphere. Will be back.
This was not our first visit to La Bussola. It is truly the best dining experience ever. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and invited friends to join. The service was excellent as was the food. Great advice helping us find the right wine. Have to comment on the music. It was just right, not overpowering and certainly appropriate for dinner conversation. We'll be visiting again soon
Lovely meal for a special evening. Our first evening using the new vaccine passport. Procedure followed provincial guidelines and we felt very safe in the restaurant. So nice to be able to go out safely again.
Best Italian in the valley. Always have the special
First experience with La Bussola. Had an absolutely amazing meal. Unfortunately they were out of the gnocchi but that means it's excellent. We are planning on returning!
