A Real Special Place !!!! Gotta try it!!!

Been on the island for 4 weeks and just had my best meal of my holidays only now @ AL CIRCO. I found it on TA, looking for real Italian Food, which shows you need a bit of expertise to work with TA. Being in the top 10 might just not mean you are in the top 10, neither does... read more

There are two things we do each year when we arrive on Gran Canaria. 1. The Beach, 2. Al Circo. We have been holidaying on Gran Canaria for about 15 years now and this restaurant is one of the main reasons we go back year after year. The food is exceptional, the wine delicious and the staff really friendly and... More

Excellent food. The best Italian food i've had out of Italy. Congratulations! Cockroaches should be better controlled.

I'm really sorry about the cockroach, we make pest control every month,but we are near a garden of the swimmingpool and in this island it's really difficult control that totally.They come from outside and they fly as well.I'm happy about your review for food.Thank you very much More

After 3 years of trying we managed to get a table at this restaurant last week (not once but twice) - we only go to Gran Canaria once a year for a week and the restaurant has always been full - WOW what fantastic food and served piping hot - bruschetta and pasta served at its best! We said goodnight... More

this place is certainly different, it's tatty, and the waiters scruffy, but the food is very good, if you can ignore the surroundings give it a try,

Proper Italian food in an area not exactly known for its authentic cuisine! Great antipasti platter, generous pizzas and well cooked pasta dishes are all highlights, as was some great Siciliane white white at just €9. Unlike some others here we found the service to be charming - both friendly and attentive. Only minor quibble has to do with location... More

Holiday resorts are full of pizza/pasta places...this is NOT one of those places, it's a real Italian restaurant, run by real Italians, who have a passion for food. The best pizza you'll eat, but save room for some desert because that's great too. It's a bit out of the way - but worth finding, and is also not on a... More

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 parmesan for a pasta dish, she almost didnt give... 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.
