Called this place after failed attempts with Pizza Hut & PizzaMore whom didn't speak a word of English on the phone! And I have to say I'm glad I did, the staff were very helpful, and delivered our delicious pepperoni pizzas & garlic bread to our hotel! Great service.

Another favourite place of ours which we visit every time we are on the island. It has a small rustic family feel, its not glamorous in any way however its very authentic and you cannot beat the food - its really delicious. Its quite difficult to find if you haven't been before but please take the time to find it!... More

Went a few times and it was OK. The pizzas, salads and starters were lovely but the pasta that we had on numerous occasions we didn't like that much. The stuff is lovely in this little restaurant I just also wish they had a better wine. Montepulciano would be great!

Really good food if you like Italian you will love the food here. On a three week holiday we ate here 5 times. Every meal we had was freshly cooked and delicious. The Pasta and Pizza's are superb. We also had some great starters (if they have seafood soup not on the menu but on a special it's fantastic) and... More

We browsed tripadvisor today to find a good Italian restaurant and got advised with this restaurant. It was our night out and we were well dressed. Arriving at the restaurant, at first we were dissapointed. BUT do not let the location (you think you are visiting a snack bar of a hotel) distract you... The folks are very friendly and... More

An absolutely gorgeous little restaurant that doesn't seem aware of how lovely it is. Wouldn't be surprised to find it in a backstreet of Rome. Pizzas huge and beautifully made, cocktails really good value. We finished with a dessert sharer which was delightful - pana cotta, tiramisu and chocolate biscuit served with liqueur. We will be back!

We already visited the restaurant a couple of times during vacation in Gran Canaria in the past and were very pleased to see that nothing has changed since then. The restaurant setting is very simple but the pizza's are to die for. Must try them! Great Italian cuisine and very good / friendly service at very reasonable prices.

I went to this restaurant after reading other Tripadvisor reviews and I wholeheartedly agree with the positive reviews. The food was ample and reasonably priced, there is a huge selection of pizzas and pasta, there is a good wine list and the location is ideal. But the best thing was the friendly service: the waiters were chatty yet efficient, and... More

You can find Pizza left and right in Maspalomas but finding a good Pizza is difficult. Finding good Pasta is even harder. Al Circo provides both and other good Italian food as well. If you are craving simple, affordable and honest Italian dishes this is where to go! The place is a little hard to find, stuffy on the inside... More
