“Genuine family restaurant”

Circosta's Italian Ristorante
Ranked #21 of 152 Restaurants in Oviedo
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Circosta's is sort of hard to see from the highway tucked into the corner of a small strip plaza.
This is a family run business that concentrates on quality and service.
The lasagne was a heaping dish of hot and tasty cheese and meat sauce with just the right amount of spice .
The bread and dip was quite tasty.
Parking can be a problem so get there early on weekends.
The dining area is a little on the small size so be prepared to sit close to strangers at nearby table and prepare for a little noise.
Due to the constant crowds you may have to wait so take a book to read
This is the real deal homemade Italian so please remember that if it of takes a few minutes for your delicious meal to arrive it will be well worth the wait.
Trust me, after one visit you will be back again and again :)

Good food, prepared fresh. We have been going to this restaurant for several years, and also the previous restaurant run by the chef. The pasta dishes are delicious, really love the gnocchi. Servers are either family or have been there long enough to be considered family. The only downside is that the place is small, so on weekends it's crowded, and the parking lot is not a great place to hang out and wait for a table.

We ate at this wonderful little family restaurant. It's in a small strip mall and doesn't look especially inviting from outside. But once you step inside you know you are in for a treat.
The salads your typical house salad with lettuce, cukes, tomatoes , etc it good but a little acidic.
Our favorite dish is the penne alla vodka with broccoli. It's somehow creamy and light at the same time. The broccoli is perfect with just a slight texture and the pasta is a perfect al dente. Delicious!!
Desserts are heavenly. The neopolian is creamy with wonderful pastry layers.
I loved this place!

Try the pasta fagioli it is absolutely amazing. My favorite main course is the Penne a la vodka with chicken. The portions are very generous and a good value. The pizzas have that homemade taste and are nothing at all like the chains.

The sevice in this family restaurant is always good, and they make you feel at home. The food is italian comfort food, and it is consistently average. It is a safe restaurant to go to if you are trying to meet someplace after a school function on Friday night, or after practice on a weekday night. The protions are good and the prices are reasonable. The desserts are very good, and are great to take out if you are not dining in. I would not go there for a special meal or a romantic evening. The place is on the small side, and so if there is a big party there, you may have to wait. A nice average family italian restaurant.
