Delicious pizzas, but many things to improve

Im gonna keep it short and sweet. Best pizzas in Playa del inglés, no doubt. Fresh dough and generous but not heavy ingredients. Lovely selection. Pasta and gnocci are beautiful as well. The cons, the waitress, she is always looking miserable and angry, she can even be rude. When asked for... read more

Best pizza of Playa del Ingles, excellent staff and educated waiters. Real italian restaurant. The only bad thing is the location of the restaurant, that is not so convenient.

Really worth coming here! Pizza is amazing and staff is great. Location is a bit hidden but very cosy. They have great Spanish wine.

a friend of me advised this place, after a few of difficulties we have found it, nothing to say about the location..however the name reported meant something..., nothing to say about the pizza, one of the best in playa de l'ingles, open till late, all the staff is Italian and friendly. advised

I admit I was dubious about this place in the beginning, but what amazing food!! The risotto was perfection, the cheeses and meats fresh and tasty, and the wine not too expensive Also had a pizza based bread as part of the starter and wow, light, crispy and full of flavour Will be visiting again before I go home

Playa del Ingles may be one of theses places full of non interesting restaurants, where they serve unpersonal and average quality food. Finding something authentic is a real gem, and a pleasure to taste their italian specialities. We discovered Al Circo in our holidays in March, and we have repeated twice in our November's break with friends. First night we... More

It did us at first but give it a whirl, great food, service and prices. Its located underneath the Tinache Apartments on the corner of Avenue... More

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
