The excellent ratings led us to this restaurant, and upon seeing the outside, felt it was going to be a great experience. That feeling never left. Very nice wine selection, wonderful pizzas and salads, and deserts. Try the Tiramisu sampler! Our server heard me say...More

Average visit. Had the crab spaghetti - pasta was very undercooked (defo not al dente) and had pieces of the shell in the pasta. Had to take care with every bite I took! The grilled aubergine with tomato and cheese starter was good! Overall wouldn't...More

I don't understand the good overall reviews for this restaurant. Food was overpriced, service adequate but very slow and our moist pizzas had very little to do with good Italian cuisine.

La Bussola was the first place we ate when we arrived in Florence and it set the bar high for the remainder of our dining. Excellent service, inventive dishes in an enchanting atmosphere.

Superb place, you can see the pizzaioli making the pizza and playing with the dough. I had ravioli with cheese (18 euro), it was delicious.

The eggplant parmigiana we ordered were excellent, the bolognese pasta my daughter had was very good and my bussola pizza was also very good. Only wished I had asked for (or had been offered) the spicy olive oil (just saw that on another review). Very...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
