About The Restaurant

I don’t know anybody who doesn’t love Italian food, not to mention the lighthearted fun atmosphere to be found in Italian restaurants.   We have very fond memories of a little Italian restaurant in Soho that we used visit many years ago, and Sirocco’s in Tullamore is a restaurant too that evokes happy memories for many.  It is one of those places where you are remembered and recognized “where everybody knows your name” to quote the TV show ‘Cheers’.  That is very important in a dining experience be it just going out for a casual bite on a Friday night, or to celebrate those special occasions.

The menu is extensive covering appetisers, pizza, pasta,  steaks and grills, and seafood dishes.   All of your favourite Italian dishes are here – and then some – combining the best of Italian and Irish produce with alacrity and ability.  Starters include a traditional Minestrone soup, delicious with garlic bread with mozzarella.  Antipasto Misto sports a selection of Italian cured meats, roast peppers, artichoke, sun dried tomatoes, olives and dressing, whilst Insalata di Casa has mixed leaves with Feta cheese, olives, red onion, tomato, roast peppers, artichokes and Balsamic dressing.  They have smoked Irish salmon with capers, or Parma ham with Parmesan shavings and rocket salads, as well as Caesar Salads with or without crispy bacon or chargrilled chicken fillet strips – these can be had as starters or mains.  The ever popular chicken wings are Siciliana style, chargrilled and served with a spicy salsa dip, whilst ravioli verdi are oven baked parcels filled with spinach and Ricotta cheese with a creamy tomato sauce – love them!    Another great favourite of mine is Melanzane, oven baked aubergine, tomato, courgette and roast peppers topped with pesto and cheese, and indeed Gamberi Alla Limone – Tiger prawns, in the shell, sautéed with lemon and garlic – roll your sleeves up and get down to them – there is nothing like it. 

There are some dozen and a half pasta dishes from which to choose – and you can also have a half portion as a starter – Italian style.  Linguine can be had Frutti di Mare – fruits of the sea – or with pesto, pine nuts and Parmesan.  Tagliatelle Verdi Gratini is oven baked with Parma ham and creamy cheese sauce, whilst Risotto Marinara has oven baked Arborio rice with mussels, clams, prawns, crab and squid.    Their pizzas are hand thrown and stone baked with a thin crust and very amusingly they all bear top designer names!  So, you can have your Prada Classic, which is the basic combination of Mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce, or move up a notch to Armani, which is “elegantly draped with ham and mushroom”.  Versace has a “flashy twist of prawns, tuna, mussels and garlic, whilst Valentino is “smartly dressed with olives, anchovies, chilli, garlic and capers” – my favourite combo!

Steaks and Grills offer a selection of sirloin and fillet steaks cooked simply or with your choice of sauce, creamy peppercorn, garlic butter or Marsala wine cream and mushroom.  Barbary duck breast with blackcurrant liqueur sauce and a hint of mint or Brandy and dried fruit sauce, whilst veal can be had as Veal Marsala, or Veal Testarossa – with garlic, chilli, and sundried tomato.   There is a trio of chicken dishes as well as a selection of seafood dishes including fillet of salmon with a Provençale sauce served on baby spinach, or cracking jumbo prawns chargrilled in lemon and herb marinade, served with a julienne of mixed peppers and onion, garlic aioli and ‘Scullery’ sweet chilli dips.    Gluten free pasta is available to order and coeliac and other specific diets and allergies are catered for.   They also have a good value Kids Size Me children’s menu.

Make room, if you can, for luscious puds – Tiramisu with Mascarpone and Amaretto Liqueur, double chocolate fudge gateau served with vanilla ice-cream, cheesecake,  and more.  They also do the wonderful Boulaban Farmhouse ice-creams from Tipperary.

Buon Appetito.
