Circolo – CLOSED


Circolo is a new Noho restaurant owned by the chef from Posada Margherita in Tulum, Mexico.  If you haven’t seen our review, click through now.  This was a phenomenal little spot on the beach where Alessandro Carozzino, known as the ‘Pasta Nazi’ makes every pasta order from scratch.  He frowns on special requests, as he crafts his special menu daily.  It was the freshest, simplest and most delicious pasta we’ve had in the most stunning … Continue reading
