A slice of Italy has come to Grange Road with Syculy opening its doors.

The pizza restaurant and Sicilian pastry lab was born from the passion of a Sicilian couple, Mimmo Messina and Carmen Anarasco.

They have opened the new store to share their wealth of knowledge from 20 years of work experience in Italy. The couple came to Adelaide 8 years ago and have worked for a range of restaurants in the city before deciding to open their own.

Syculy brings the best of both sweet and savoury Italian cuisine to the western suburbs.

Traditional dishes with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options are available so there’s something for everyone.

Guests can choose from a variety of traditional wood oven Italian pizza with simple toppings so that each ingredient’s flavour is celebrated. There’s salami, parmigiana, and margherita, as well as patate, mushroom, 4 formaggi with loads more to choose.

Mimmo said the dough has a controlled temperature maturation of at least 72 hours or more, which makes the pizza easy to digest.

There’s a range of antipasti dishes and mains on offer too. Visitors can try a variety of arancina from pistachio to mushroom, while there’s also homemade gnocchi with ricotta and beetroot, as well as meat and other pasta options.

For a sweet treat to end the delicious Italian feast, there’s traditional Italian pastries to choose from.

The cannolis are all completely homemade with an original recipe, from the shell right to the filling. There’s original Sicilian, pistachio, gianduja and even ice-cream Torone filling to try with vegan options too.

Mimmo said all the dishes are authentic and delicious.

“We are from Sicily and we are confident people will love the dishes, especially arancini and pasta,” Mimmo said.

“Everything is traditional with a focus from our homeland.”

With dine-in and takeaway options, Syculy is located at 247 Grange Rd, Findon.

Syculy is open from Monday to Saturday, from 5 pm until late.
