Good ambience. Ok food. High priced wine. Was recommended this place for Italian....not as Italian as I wanted
Amazing food and service. We will definitely be back!
Always a wonderful experience! enjoyed the food - ambience- service! I always recommend this restaurant. Valentines day had a special feel and a full house with everyone enjoying themselves!
A wonderful family business that has provided all of us so many special times.
Absolutely fabulous service even though it was Valentine’s Day and very busy. Food was outstanding! Will definitely come back!
Good atmosphere, extensive wine list, a good menu with something for everyone, great service and best of all, it's not loud. You can have a conversation without having to yell. This is one of our favourite restaurants.
Always a great meal and experience!
Awesome dinner on a cold and snowy night. I had the mushroom ravioli....incredible
Food was excellent. Wine is very expensive. A half litre of wine cost more than meals
Delightful evening with friends that included great food and wine. Our server was excellent and the food was amazing. Recommend this place for a nice meal in a comfortable, elegant atmosphere.
Loved the electronic spirits and wine list .... easy to use and impressive collection . The serving staff were excellent and just attentive enough
Service was decent but the food wasn't anything special. The basic dishes are affordable but the taste from both our meals were disappointing. It's past it's hay day as a fine dining establishment sadly.
Great ambience, authentic Italian cuisine, family owned and run. Best Italian restaurant in Kelowna, bar none.
Showed up a few minutes early for our reservation and given attitude from the hostess. Wasn’t drinking alcohol that night so seemed as though we were put on the back burner. Ordered the rack of lamb only to find shards of tinfoil in my meal, girlfriend ordered a rare rib eye and it came out well done, sent both meals back and when I got the lamb back the meal was nothing like the first one, potatoes were rock solid and it didn’t have the same presentation or taste. They didn’t charge for the steak as she changed it up for a different meal, and took a slight discount off the bill of $11. Wasn’t worth the wait, our NYE experience wasn’t what we had anticipated. Won’t be going back that’s for sure.
It was exceptional!! Amazing Food and awesome service!!
Went for my sister’s 65th Birthday. It was a wonderful choice!! Wine very good but pricey, food was very good and the salted caramel gelato was amazing!! Wonderful music, great dining experience. Would highly recommend this restaurant!!

This is a boring report. We go there because the food is excellent, the service is terrific, the menu has great choices, the place is spread out enough, so it is not noisy and we can talk easily. It is by far our favourite place to eat. Every time is the same report. Sorry if it is boring.
Absolutely fantastic place for a nice dinner . The food was incredible and the service was second to none. Highly recommended 👍
Excellent food and service paired with a tremendous wine list!
Took my wife for her birthday.
Service, food, atmosphere all very good.
Could have done without the Christmas music though.
Would definitely recommend to others.
We had a great time. Everything was marvelous. Ambiance is A+.
I only marked down to 4 stars because the portions are not huge - which some people like. That said, the quality is excellent. And delicious. So the question for potential guests is: would you like a huge portion of "ok" food, or a reasonable portion of excellent food. I know what my choice is.
After dining, we left (on our way to the ballet) well fed with delicious food, and pleased we chose La Bussola.
I will go there again.
Loved the food and service. Very nice restaurant - we have gone twice and certainly will come back
Birthday. Most restaurants offer a free desert not this place. Was disappointed.
Lovely atmosphere, great food, and prompt, friendly service. I found the antipasto a little sad; was expecting something more like the Meat Locker over at the Curious. But it was still tasty, and the pasta was excellent.
Truly excellent food and service. A lovely meal with friends and we could hear each talking. Couldn't have been better in any way. Highly recommended - casual or occasion.
Very welcoming atmosphere and warm.
The wine list was superb and the food was authentic and delicious.
Looking forward to visiting them again.
Food is fantastic! The special, mussels, is done very well. My main course, rack of lamb, is the best I ever had. I am just amazed how they cook it to perfection. They were busy that night but service could be improved as we waited a bit longer specially we have kids with us.

Went for a surprise birthday dinner for an out of town guest and we were all thrilled with the food ..what an amazing evening...highly recommended and cant wait to go again....thank you staff and chef.
1st time. Really enjoyed it and Eric made some nice recommendations!
Great location and incredible food and service. It’s our new favourite restaurant in Kelowna.
The meal was exceptional, the service was good, but not as good as the meal. We had one issue when we arrived, we had reservations for 8 and a confirmation for 8, but when we arrived the person at the front said they only had us for 6 and made a small issue out of it. They did accommodate us at a nice table, however, it was made out like it was our problem. On the service, not rated as high as we had to ask to have another bottle of wine and were topping up our wine ourselves, based on the price of the entrees, I would have expected the service to be of a higher quality.
Based on the exceptional meal, we will definitely be back, but recognize the service isn't as exceptional as the food is.
Very good service and I always love the food. Vegan options as well.
We were a large group (8) Our waiter was very polite and attentive.
Great ambiance. Everyone had a very good meal. No compaints whatsoever.
Looking forward to our next meal there.
Excellent Food! Great ambiance! Good service! No complaints! Will go again!
I ate here this week and the food was just like they said in the reviews -- outstanding.
The best restaurant in Kelowna. The foods is always great.
The veal could not be better.
Delicious meal with very attentive staff and unique menu choices.
