Experience the fun and friendly vibe of the circus! The décor alone is enough to elevate your mood with a palette of primary colours. Taking inspiration from the European big-top of old, this is where you should leave your attitude at the door and unwind in it’s chilled out atmosphere.
The menu is a delicious collection of traditional Tuscan recipes that have been handed down for generations. Founded from the kitchen of Maccioni matriarch Egidiana who created the restaurant, the food is feel-good and rustic. One such dish id the ravioli Mamma Egi which is a combination handmade ricotta and spinach, sage, butter and parmesan cheese.
Expect delicious twists on the norm. The restaurant doesn’t rest on its laurels and uses flair and imagination to turn classic flavours into something completely different. Try the pizza with saffron béchamel, lobster, prawns and calamari with halloumi cheese and zaatar, that’s a flavourful fusion nod to the region.
An Italian meal wouldn’t be complete without tiramisu. The way it’s served here is a playful take on the popular dessert, served in a chocolate ball filled with coffee and mascarpone cream.
