While I really like a good pizza, I generally don't order one in a restaurant that offers a wide range of food. Al Circo is an exception. The pizza is so good that it seems a shame to bypass it. On my arrival this time in Gran Canaria, I felt too tired to cook for myself after my 4 1/2... More

If this restaurant wasn't closing for holiday the day after our visit, we would have come back again within the week we were there. The food was so fresh and tasty, the aubergine cheese and tomato layered starter was a big hit, seafood pizza and pasta was just Devine. For 6 people we all had starters, mains, desserts, couple of... More

I went here in 2013 and 2014 several times. The first sign of a good restaurant: you can see the cook preparing the fresh food. The meals are well prepared, tastefull and fresh. The menu offers good variety. I will be back!

Directed by the very friendly (but not pushy) lady tout outside. This restaurant is difficult to find as it is under a very large apartment block & you go in from inside the building. The décor is very dull & really the tables look unattractive when you walk in. The staff are friendly but scruffy. All the pasta & pizza... More

Have been to Al Circo twice on my stay, and both times the food and service were superb. Tucked away from the main centres, this place is a treasure.

If you want to have dinner around jumbo and want a notch higher experience than the buffet type of restaurants, this Italian operated restaurant is a good choice. Bit more expensive than the average buffet pricing of 10 euro but than it tastes good!

Went for the four cheese. Nuff said. 10/10. Situated beneath an apartment block on main road it's not great to lokm at, but nice little table area outside and perfect pizza for the pizza purist. Genuine Italian standard.

Back again to PDI and a return visit to Al Circo. This time with my partner - his first visit to the restaurant. We both had decided we wanted a simple meal - just a pizza and red wine, so Al Circo seemed the obvious place to go. The only problem we each have with pizza is that it can... More

This place is a family run business with friendly staff, it is off the beaten track under an apartment complex. Had garlic bread to start which was just ok and had pizza for main which was lovely. Rustic little restaurant with lots of circus photos which made it unique.
