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.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Playa del ingles and it was good to be back again: I got a very pleasant welcome from the owners and good advice on their specials of the day. I settled on a mango & Gorgonzola risotto as a main course and then ordered a baked aubergine as a starter, thinking that... More

a parte il fatto dell'effetto toscano.... but the pizza and beer was what we needed...!!! nice and friendly. So...the pizza is a hit. Enjoy and if you are a skeptical pizza eater then you will find peace at this restaurant.

I don't like writing this review, as it will find fault with one of my favourite restaurants. All reviews are subjective, and this one is no exception. I visited Al Circo again in July. As usual, I received a friendly welcome. It was good to be back in their atmospheric little room. The decor is reminiscent of a local trattoria... More

We are really sorry about it,but maybe the antipasto wait a little bit in the kitchen because the restaurant was busy and in july the temperature in the kitchen is around 30ºC.We keep out the mortadella because usually when we served the antipasto people ate everything but the mortadella.We use the same italian products from the opening and we always...
