About Us

 

Here’s a little insight into the restaurant, our ethos and how it has become the resounding success that it has.

 

Our Story

Where It All Began

 “My fondest memories are of growing up in the rolling hills of Tuscany. I spent countless hours in the kitchen, cooking with my nonna and then sharing our efforts with the rest of the family. My nonna was a great woman and a true insipiration to me. She gave me the passion and drive to start my career as a chef. I spent many years working in some amazing kitchens back home but  there came a time when I needed to spread my wings and go it alone.

La Bussola opened its doors 15 years ago, with just a few tables and members of staff. Over the years it has grown and grown into the great restaurant it is now. The team are like no other I have worked with, we are a family and we all strive to get the best out of one another.

I hope you enjoy your experience at La Bussola as much as we have enjoyed creating it.

Nonna would be proud of each and every one of us.”
Giovanni Romano (owner of La Bussola)
