"There are a number of great Italian restaurants in Glen Cove and La Bussola is certainly one of them. We have been dining at La Bussola for more than 20 years and considerate one of our all-time favorite restaurants, anywhere. We are so lucky to have it a five-minute drive from home."

"A dependable 30 year old + restaurant in Glen Cove ---with many competitors this remains our favorite. Portions are large and always hot and well prepared. Salads, pasta, veal and fish are all prepared from scratch and well seasoned !
Don't miss the desserts either especially the Napoleon !!

"I have heard about this restaurant for years. I was very disappointed. It was restaurant week and the restaurant was very crowded. The service was poor. The food was very rushed. Plates were thrown down quickly and the server was gone before you could even ask a question. It was difficult to get anyones attention for adding cheese to your dish or getting a glass of wine. My allergies were on my reservation,told to the server and yet I was served something dangerous to my health. I ate after the person I was with was done because it had to be remade. The manager was very nice when I told him how I felt. I don't think I would go back ."

"This place was amazing and the staff more than accommodating when it came to our reservation and the need for a romantic secluded dinner. Carlo was also very helpful with accepting the flowers I had delivered to the restaurant. The food was second to none and would recommend anyone who wants a romantic night with that special someone to come to this establishment!"

"This neighborhood gem has been around for longer than we've been in the neighborhood, which is going on 25 years! That says something. We were warmly welcomed by all even though this is not one of our frequent restaurants… Only when we have the craving for Italian. Our dinner was very pleasant. We split a Caesar salad, which is usually quite good & homemade but wasn't up to its usual "goodness" that evening. They were more than willing to re-prepare or credit us, which seemed very fair. On a more positive note we had the baked clams, which were very good. We then split the veal chop Parmesan, 1 of the specials which was also very tasty although not quite as good as at La Ginestra, another Glen Cove Italian restaurant. Service was very on point. David, our waiter could not be any more professional or accommodating. While the restaurant could definitely use an update in decor, it is clean and still pleasant. Definitely a recommended restaurant!"

"For over 32 years this has been our "go to" restaurant for great food/service ! Eat there at least 2x month--great Putanesca, White clam sauce, grilled calamari and all selections on the voluminous menu. Their marinara is superb as well.
Don't miss the Tiramisu or the Napoleon for dessert.
