Circo offers upscale Italian fare built upon a foundation of
signature Tuscan recipes from the kitchen of Maccioni matriarch Egidiana and prepared by Executive Chef Alfio Longo. The menu is served in a
lively, sophisticated setting reminiscent of the old-style European circus tents which inspired the
"When we opened Circo in 1996, our business plan was simple, Dad's Hospitality, Mom's Food, run by the sons."
Bright blue circus rings suspended with gold stars, sculptures of monkeys swinging near overhead,
playful clowns dancing above the open kitchen and a ceiling hung with tapestries & trapezes all
reinforce the circus theme.
Circo NYC has recently received the Ospitalità Italiana certification in
recognition of the authentic techniques, ingredients, presentation and training which
define the restaurant’s high quality approach to Italian cuisine.
