Trattoria siciliana

Circolo Popolare

Scroll

Welcome to Circolo – our Sicilian sunny trattoria in the heart of London’s lively Fitzrovia district. In fact, we are a group of pals, 130 Italians completely crazy. And in this neighborhood already feels like home. Our Chef Salvatore has created a crazy menu of incredible products. It offers, among other things, the Sfoglia Norma 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 with friends and dinners under the starry ceiling. There are 60 seats in the Sicilian summer festivals all year round. Go through the door and enjoy the ride!

BOOKING POLICY

We do have a few booking availabilities, from breakfast to lunch and dinner. Groups from 2 till 12 are able to book online, though please be aware we have booking availabilities mostly on first service as most of the restaurant is kept for walk in after that. If you cannot select the service for which you are looking to book on our widget, it means we are already fully booked and you should come as walk-in !

WALK-IN

Walk-ins are accepted all day long up to 7 people. If the restaurant is full when you arrive, you can put your name on the waitlist and we will text you when your table is ready. We recommend coming as early as possible to avoid long waits and to get a table as our wait list fills up quickly.

BIG GROUPS AND PRIVATIZATIONS

Circolo's squadra is happy to welcome you for your large dinner parties, your cheerful birthdays, your happy family soiree or your cool business events. For big group bookings for 13+ people please contact us on bookings@bigmamma.com. Under 13 people all bookings availabilities are done through our online widget.

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.
