Steve's Piccola Bussola of Syosset

Italian
The Vaccaro Family opened the Syosset location in February of 2008. This time they partnered with a good friend and fellow restauranteur Rocco Gojcaj. Everyone agreed they wanted to replicate the originality of the Westbury store but add a little more of the new world. They have succeeded with beautiful stone and granite to compliment the enormous wine wall they built in the main dining area. The Syosset location has three separate areas for parties in the main dining room including a separate room for private parties as well. Nowadays the dining experience has changed, and we love to serve diners at our beautiful and inviting bar. Whether just to hang out and eat, or have a cocktail and watch the game. The most important thing for this restaurant is the consistency of the food. Old world Italy meets contemporary and modern surroundings.

My family came from the city, and left it to me to pick a restaurant.
We couldn’t be happier

From the baked clams and penne alla vodka to the veal piccata, everything was on point as it usually is. We always know we'll get a consistent meal here!

My companion and I were the only people in the restaurant. The menu included a fish my friend wanted but was not available. The special fish of the day was only available in a family sized serving. The food was good. The service was good too

Nice place, very clean and appealing. Long Island has so many good Italian restaurants that we take it for granted. Steve’s is a very good value, maybe more quantity than quality, but goo

Went there for Easter with 10 family members. We have been going to the restaurant in Westbury for over 25 years and wanted to try the one in Syossett. The food, service and atmosphere was superb!

Since the Mineola location was unfortunately destroyed in a fire, we decided to try this outpost. Same menu and formula, and that's fine with us. Good food and priced right.

Excellent service and good food. It is a family restaurant consisting of single servings and family size. The single servings are extraordinary too large for one person. Be ready to take home doggie bags.

Overall the food was fine. The calamari was over cooked, but the marinara sauce was yummy! The place is dated and could use a better wine list.
