I first went to Al Circo on my previous visit to GC and was delighted with it. The interior is cosy, a bit kitsch and old-fashioned - which is a compliment, BTW. On the previous occasion the antipasti had been a clear winner so I ordered it again. Still just as good! Good pasta dish afterwards. Very friendly service. Nice homely atmosphere.

Even after reading the tripadvisor reviews, we still weren't sure exactly where to find this restaurant - it's along a walkway reached via the steps under the Apartmentos Tinache sign on Av. de Bonn.

Indoors, there were just 6 tables, a bar and a pizza preparation area (Pizzas bases were being 'spun' most of the evening). All the food was beautifully flavored and portions were generous - pizzas were thin and crisp and the Ravioli was meaty and rich. Service was attentive but not pushy. The pizzas and tomato soup seem be house specialties.

We have visited this fabulous little Italian since it opened 2 or 3 years ago and can say it does indeed do the best pizzas on the island. The menu is in no way limited and I would say is extensive. Much of the pasta is home made and i have never been disappointed. It is a pool side location ( not basement ). This is one not to be missed..

Just been to playa del ingles and visited al circo twice the food Is always good, the restaurant set up is rather strange , the lady appeared to recognise us as being there several times before. The pizzas are perhaps the nicest in playa, don't be put off with the first impression as sometime the welcome is frosty maybe a culture thing , the food is indeed very good

I enjoyed a nice meal in this unassuming little restaurant - which is located in the basement of a block of flats. It is in such an unlikely location that the restaurant needs to have a puller-in up on Av. Tirajana. Happily I accepted his suggestion. A nice family trattoria or bistro, it offers a reasonably varied - but limited menu.More important was the nicely cooked food and the friendly family atmosphere - which overcame the initial shock of heading into the basement for dinner. Prices were very moderate.
