Just off the main square away from the hustle and bustle in a side street, lovely restaurant, clean, sharpe decor, good choice of wines and the food is very good, excellent at times we ate there a few times. Many italians eat there can sit inside or outside they even provide a spray for us English who get chewed on... More

Il Circo is slightly off the beaten track, yet only a couple of minutes away from the main square but it is so worth a visit because it is lovely. The weather had been poor and it was a little chilly so we dined inside but this wasn't disappointing because the decor is stylish and the lighting subtle - a... More

I went to Il Circo in July during my annual visit to Italy, and I was just as pleased as every other time I went. I was with my parents, my wife, our 2.5 years old daughter and a couple of family friends, and we were all welcomed warmly. The meal itself was very good. Since my last visit the... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Pietrasanta. Food was excellent with great selections & a bit adventurous. You won't find the typical pasta choices. Great wine selection too.

We visited Il Circo at the recommendation of friends. It is a couple of minutes walk from the main square in Pietrasanta, and we went a little earlier than most Italian diners, so were the first there, though it was full shortly afterward. We had foie gras in an orange sauce that was to die for and my husband's pork... More

The first time we ate here this restaurant wowed us with excellent food & super value for money. Our expectations were therefore high & although we had a pleasant evening the food was rather disappointing. Almost all the dishes on the tasting menu contained tomato, and although we do like tomato the balance was not good. The pasta was disappointing... More

Upon entering the restaurant you will be impressed by its appearance and its furnishing, elegant and discreet. The dining room is small, then fit for the restaurant, because the staff isn't large: in particular, I believe that there is only one chef on duty. This involves a certain slowness in the service. The food is prepared with care and is... More

This is an exquisite restaurant. The food and ambience are excellent. The wild pork dish melted in the mouth. My wife rated the 3 chocolate desert the best she has ever tasted. Highly recommended

We really loved our dinner here. The restaurant itself is small with just few tables so on weekends be sure to have a reservation. On summer you may seat on the outside. The food was great, tasted good and was not boring at all. This is moder tuscan cuisine at his best. The wine list was not very extended but... More

The location is off the beaten path. The decor is white table cloth and warm, the service is courteous and excellent. Having said this, the food is equal to that of all of Tuscany and perhaps Italy! We enjoyed the beef tartar, as well as the gnocchi and roasted pork and the deserts, which were very light and airy. The... More
