“Cocktails in the afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

We stopped for a coffee and the staff were good, however i ended up having a cocktail instead as the range looked so interesting, we were offered small sandwiches and when we explained we were vegetarian and couldn't eat them they brought us two bowls of assorted crisps instead. Very nice place

“Mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

We wandered into this restaurant one evening, and it was the only "poor" restaurant and meal we had in the whole of Florence. Service was practically non-existent. They took our order and about 15 mins later came back and said that one of the orders was not available!
The alternative was a terrible disappointment, it was not ribbon noodles that was expected but poorly cooked spaghetti, the ham was a bit of bacon fried and cut up and the sauce lay in a heap on the bottom of the plate a peculiar yellow colour and certainly did not contain any cream which would have been the usual. My partners meal looked terrible although he did say the beef was lovely and tender it was covered in a gloop of presumably onion sauce and to say unappetising is an under statement. It was expensive,we were wrongly charged and to compound it all my partner was violenty sick in the night!! With so many lovely restaurants abounding of which we tried many and were not disappointed, this was a dreadful mistake

“Last night in Firenze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

We came back to Circus after a great lunchtime drink and light meal earlier in the week. We were made welcome immediately and sat down to a splendid long meal in this quiet corner next to Palazzo Vecchio. Lasagne is truly excellent, either meat or vegetarian (we had one of each), wine from San Giminiagno helped and finally as darkness fell, an end of holiday cocktail.

Great atmosphere, fantastic service (thank you 'Princess'!) and a lovely last evening thanks to this restaurant! Definitely highly recommended!
