Il Tiranno is a true gourmet restaurant, one of the best points of reference in Syracuse, a continuous cooking workshop for those who appreciate but also for those who want to discover and taste that kind of cuisine that combines tradition and innovation with passion and creative genius.
The Tiranno is a real gift for the Gourmet men that with the come in succession of the seasons offers recipes of haute creative cuisine in both in the à la carte menu but also through interesting “tasting menu“.
Every detail is taken care of by the rigorous selection of raw materials, by the passionate search for rare and genuine flavours often the result of small craft traditions. The recognized talent of the chef Valentina Galli and the present modern equipment make their experimentation, a great certainty. The contrasts play, textures and chromaticity transform a simple dinner into an extraordinary sensorial experience.
I love Sicily and its perfumes. Its people, its colours, its products and the atmosphere that only here you can find
A student at the hospitality training institute, at only 17 years old she comes in contact with Syracuse where she attends an internship and is literally “bewitched” by the city, by history, by the island cuisine.
After completing her studies in the North, she decided to return into Sicily and set his roots in Syracuse, starting his career and then earning the appointment in Italian and international guides and the place in the famous Sicilian guide “Le soste di Ulisse”.
Con la famiglia ho soggiornato al Boutique Hotel Caportigia ( piccolo hotel di 14 stanze molto bello e curato e con ottima colazione) ed essendo comodo il ristorante "Il tiranno" che si trova proprio all'interno dell'hotel abbiamo cenato la prima sera.
Questo ristorante propone una cucina eccezionale, delicata ma gustosa, da non perdere la cruditè di pesce, la tagliata di tonno, la ricottina in crosta di pistacchi di bronte. Veramente tutto squisito, per non parlare del personale disponibile e professionale al massimo.
