Very slow service and confusion over starters and mains. Ravioli was undercooked though delicious at second time of asking. Waiters seemed quite confused and given the issues we faced, it was disappointing the manager didn’t come over to apologise. We’ve been regulars at Circo for a number of years and this was severely below the standard we have generally experienced. Hopefully better next time.

We didn't like Circo at all. The portions' size was waaay too small. Also the taste was not really outstanding. One of us offered Ravioli and got literally only 6 small raviolis. Moreover, there is too small variety of pizzas, and just two with ham. When we were ready to offer, ham was suddenly finished making us really frustrated. At another hotel pizzas were as pricy as at Circo, which was way overpriced. If we have known that, we definitely would have saved at least taxi costs.

I like the welcoming from the staff as they know it was my husband's birthday and the food was yummy but the service was a bit slow they should be faster .. everything was perfect .. the music, the lights ( the reduced the lights above our table which made it very cozy and romantic)

Came to this restaurant because of trip advisor reviews. It was ok. We were graciously greated and led to our table. Being off season there were very few patrons in the restaurant and yet it took a long time to take our order. We had the margarita pizza which was lukewarm on its arrival. It was just ok. We did then have the tagliatelle bolognese pasta that was very good. Moving on to desert we had the ricotta pie which was also good. All in all it was our least favorite restaurant restaurant on our trip
