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.

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.

My server was the only one on at the time. He had more tables than he could handle. The server assistant saved the day. Some customer was talking on his cell for about 5 min. So rude. Dick

Overall, our experience was bleh mainly because service was inattentive - on Valentine's Day. Ordered a chopped salad and calamari for appetizer. The chopped salad was great (note that because it's a family style restaurant the single portions are very large) but the calamari was too dried out and tasted far from fresh. For the main course, I split a penne alla vodka and filet of sole (oreganata) with my girlfriend. This course was done well.

Always a positive experience at Steve's Piccola Bussola. Very friendly, positive, attentive staff. Not too fancy, but pleasant ambience. Had a drink at the bar before dinner and the drinks (martinis) were perfect and the right size. Dinner was delicious. All good!!
