My wife and I go there wanted a while. The food is very good Italian but it's quite pricey. We considered doing a christening there but they wanted almost of a price. As far as quality and food A+ but with the pricing for C.

We live in Sea Cliff and, like most, have our favorites among the MANY Italian restaurants in the area. As a result, It took us a while to try La Bussola. I am glad that we did - no surprises here, but the classics are prepared very well and the quality of the veal and fish was top notch. A... More

We frequent La Bussola for the tasty dishes and excellent, friendly service. The dining room is comfortable but we also eat dinner at the bar, David is the best! The over-sized Veal Chop Parm is my favorite, last time I had a taste of my husband's Soft Shell Crap Special....fantastic, Wines by the glass are hig quality and reasonably priced.... More

This is a wonderful restaurant that was such a nice surprise on a Saturday night. The reception we received was warm and so friendly. We opted to sit outside because of the great weather. A wonderful group of servers could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Wines were exceptionally good by the glass. Appetizers of roasted figs and another... More

You can not go wrong to bring a hearty appetite to this restaurant. Get the chopped salad and stuffed artichoke to start. The bread has been upgraded recently so try not to stuff you're face to early. The entree selection is superb. Not completely healthy but delicious. Linguine and clam sauce is our family all time favorite. The veal or... More

This was a great find and unexpected. We pretty much picked the restaurant out of the dark and we were very pleased we did pick it. Initially my wife wanted a lobster dinner. After spending a fair amount of time looking at restaurants, I concluded that fried seafood was about all we would get and in a tavern/bar/deli atmosphere. This... More
