There are two ways to experience Bussola, and depending on your mood you can enjoy either. Settle in the sophisticated upscale restaurant down on beach level or take the winding staircase to the fashionable pizzeria above. We’ve got nothing against the fantastic pizzas with traditional Italian crusts and global topping favourites (try the Tartufata – mozzarella, cream cheese and black and white truffles – for one of the city’s more sophisticated slices), but we recommend the fine-dining selection. Ignore the poolside revellers and beachgoers strolling past the tables and concentrate your attention on the quality of the food. The crunchiness of the vegetables with the basil pesto risotto gives what can sometimes be a sloppy dish a distinctive bite, and the numerous meat dishes – we recommend the lamb – are top class. Most dishes come with a twist of creativity, such as caremelised pearl onions with the salmon carbonara, to make this beachside favourite a decadent treat.
