Small restaurant with Italian menu and also pizza. We ordered 2 pizzas, which were nice and the ingredients very fresh and well prepared. Do not expect a 5 stars service or a luxurious mise en place, it is small familiar restaurant, therefore It's better to book a table in adavance. Desserts are also home made, and very nice. Suggested!

Tonight we followed a friend's recommendation and tried Al Circo. She told us that the pasta was handmade and we tried two pasta dishes: one seafood (off the menu item) and one bolognese. Both were delicious and we would highly recommend anyone wanting great Italian pasta in Playa del Ingles to try Al Circo.

Although from the outside this restaurant may seem rather plain, you should definitely go there! After a warm welcome we discovered that it was mostly visited by locals, which always is a good sign. Starters arrived quickly and were really delicious, as was our main course of pizza (the real Italian one with a very thin crust). After finishing we... More

My son reviewed Italian restaurants, and came up with this gem. As is said on other reviews, walking past you would think it's a pool cafe. The staff we're very friendly, meal was brilliant.

We have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and it never fails to impress. Wonderful food and service. More often than not, the place is full of local and Italian holiday makers which to me says it all.

As I put my trust in TripAdvisor I went to this restaurant for takeaway pizzas. The location is as underwhelming as it could be and I was more then a little sceptical as I entered. It was quite busy but the reception was friendly. I ordered two pizzas and sat down to wait. A few minutes later I heard the... More

So glad we found this place - thank you Trip Advisor! Having encountered the Yumbo and the beach on our first two nights, we were so glad to find this place serving authentic Italian food. Can't praise it enough!

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
