About us

Welcome to Circolo Neapolitan Pizzeria

Circolo Is An Authentic Neapolitan Restaurant Serving Pizza Al Forno In A Wood-burning Oven Imported From Naples, Italy. Circolo Means “a Circle Of People Coming Together In A Friendly Environment.”
Thea Kalivas, Circolo’s Managing Partner And Co-owner (With Husband, George), Designed The Space To Make Patrons Feel As If They Are In Italy Tasting Foods From The Kitchens Of Naples And The Amalfi Coast – And She Succeeded. The Restaurant Features An Open Kitchen And A Magnificent 7,000-pound Wood-burning Oven Tiled By Italian Master Steve Delmaestro. And Pizza Al Forno Is Only Part Of Circolo’s Cuisine; Other Offerings Include

Octopus, Calamari, Salads, Pasta, Veal Chicken, Bronzino, Salmon, Special Wild Fish.

From The High End (Il Villino) To A Bistro In Montclair (Bistro 18) To American Cuisine (The Plum And The Pear) To Casual (Circolo), Giorgio Has Learned To Understand The Synergy Of Flavors. Fusing, If You Will, Giorgio Is Not Defined By Limits. We Believe That That Pizza Is An Art Form. For Us, There’s Something Deeply Personal About Pizza. Although The Mother Dough Formula Is Perhaps The Most Constant: Creating Toppings Is The Focal Force. Circolo’s Pizza Is Not Run Of The Mill. You Know Where To Go For That. I Am Constantly Striving To Get Better With New Ingredients, Techniques And Of Course Service. I Constantly Feel That I Can Do Better.

Quoting From Famous Pizzaioli, John Arena, “pizza Keeps Evolving And Getting Better. As A Shared Food, It Brings Friends And Family Together.”

We Draw Inspiration From Never Being Completely Satisfied

Having Grown Up In A Family Of Restaurant Owners, Food Has Always Been A Huge Part Of My Life.

About Our Pizza:
One May Not Think That Something As Simple As Pizza Can Be So Beautiful And Intriguingly Complex. But Then Again, All Pizza Is Not Created Equally! I Like To Do Our Pizzas Somewhat Imperfect Making Them Not Perfectly Round And Uniform. From My Culinary Perspective, This Makes Them “perfectly Imperfect”.

We Are Located Between Allendale, Hohokus, Saddle River And Upper Saddle River. Minutes From Wyckoff, Mahwah, And Ramsey.

You Can Order Online For Pickup & Delivery. We Provide Catering For Private Parties.
