Good food and good living

A seducing frame of ineffable beauty.

Quality and Welcome

In order to give to a restaurant the explicit name "La Terrazza sul Mare" (The Terrace on the Sea), nothing else needs to be made up: in fact, a quick look to the pictures is enough to understand the atmosphere of the place. Furthermore, there is the welcome, that in Sicily is almost a religion: the chef Maurizio Urso and his staff will take care of everything, making you live enjoyable moments strengthened by a cuisine of other times, in a seducing frame of ineffable beauty. We find ourselves in Ortigia, a small little island linked to Syracuse and directly reachable by car; Here we can admire intense sunsets characterised by the Mediterranean colours and bright lights that flood the diversities of the sea, all of that observing the Penisola della Maddalena in the distance.

The Chef Maurizio Urso

The cuisine of Maurizio Urso is a traditional and revisited one, because it puts together the past and the present of a magnificent land. We could define it as a proper "dynamic food archaeology": the ancient recipes meet the modern way of preparing things to bring the rediscovered taste back to life. It is one of the reasons why the cooking of the restaurant "La Terrazza sul Mare" is appreciated by a large public that goes from the passionate gourmet to the family, from the occasional costumer to the well prepared tourist, from the businessman to the couple in search of a romantic restaurant. It is one of the best restaurants in Syracuse not only for the huge agreement, but also and especially for the ingredients used in the kitchen: the fresh fish du jour, the meat coming from farms of local breeds, the vegetables and the fruit bought from local farmers, the pasta almost entirely homemade from local grains?all products of excellent quality that are turned into "resources".
