Welcome to Circolo – a sunny Sicily style trattoria in the heart of bustling Fitzrovia. We’re a bunch of friends, actually, a big bunch of 130 thirsty for life Italians. And this area is available for our new home. Chef Salvatore’s menu is full of showstoppers, homemade from the incredible products. It features jaw drops like the Sfoglia Norma with Cinta Senese pork meat, our first ever Pizzas al metro and outrageous XXL desserts.

Circolo is open 7/7 for jolly catch-up breakfasts, boozy crew lunches festive gold late night dinners under the thousand festoon lights. 280 seats and 60 seats Sicilian summer feasts all year long. Pass the door and enjoy the ride!

Why don’t you take reservations ?



We use amazing products that come directly from amazing producers located in Italy. We only serve fresh, 100% made-in-house food. And in order to stay in the spirit of the authentic Italian trattorias we love so much, we offer a menu that’s as affordable as possible. The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. In order to be able to offer quality products at affordable prices, we have to ensure that all our seats are filled. Either we accommodate a lot of people, or we make a lot of profit.

Plus, there’s advantages to not having to reserve 2 months in advance just to eat a pizza ! To put it simply : we understand that not taking reservations can be inconvenient for our diners, but we have to weigh this consideration against the fact that we’re trying to offer high value-for-money by squeezing our margins. To make things just a little bit easier, we’ve put in place a wait-list system whereby our hostess take your name and telephone number and call you when your table is ready.
