Fun Italian, always buzzing, always friendly, and good food to boot. Maccioni Family delivers. If you can't get reservations at Le Cirque, come here. Same family, excellent food, and a lot more fun.

Surrounded by Modern Beauty While Eating Great Food

What more can you ask for? Amazing, colorful modern decor consisting of mechanized circus themed metal sculptures, rich colors and perfect lighting. The menu was wonderful. We enjoyed the carpaccio appetizer, tender lamb shank and vegetables and an amazing vanilla and raspberry pannacotta for dessert. Would definitely go back. Wonderful service, if somewhat pricey.
