Trattoria siciliana

Circolo Popolare

Scroll

Welcome to Circolo – our sunny Sicilian trattoria in the heart of London’s lively Fitzrovia district. We are a group of pals, 130 completely crazy Italians. And this neighborhood already feels like home. Our Chef Salvatore has created a crazy menu from our incredible Italian products. It offers, among other things, the Lasagna Sfoglia with Cinta Senese pork, our first pizzas by the meter and scandalous desserts, size XXL.

Circolo is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner under the starry ceiling. And in summer, there are  60 incredible seats in our sunny Sicilian terrace. Go through 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.
