Where history and Italian taste meet

Welcome to the Circus

“…our cuisine has obvious Mediterranean roots. We use only the best ingredients from local producers (PDO, PGI, etc..) to create fresh and light dishes. We pay careful attention to seasonal ingredients and use the best herbs and spices for a cuisine that is healthy, yet at the same time extremely tasty…”.
