We dropped into this restaurant for lunch... couldn't decide what to have so requested a variety of dishes to share, mainly consisting of pasta dishes... I don't know what happened after that... I basically went on this journey of popping taste buds and happiness! AMAZING is all I can say! This is food prepared by the Sicilian Gods.

After having so much about this restaurant, our visit on December 18th was a great let-down. I tried the Falsomagro alla siciliana, which was totally lacking inflavour. Also the staff attitude was less-than-friendly, from initial welcome, through meal service and check-out. We won't be returning.

I had been wanting to eat at this restaurant with its interesting history. However. I was so disappointed. The staff are stiff and unwelcoming with not a smile among them. We ordered and patata fritte were not available. I ordered veal but was served a tough and over cooked beef steak. Over rated by far.

We loved this place. We arrived in time for lunch and sat in the small room off the kitchen. The waiters were efficient friendly and very helpful. We chose a range of dishes and everything was delicious and incredibly good value. There were many local people eating there and the atmosphere was great. If you like meat do not miss... More

Because of the good reviews we waited specifically for this restaurant to open on the night we were here, and all 4 of us were really disappointed. It's a pork butchers with no inside facilities, wine better at supermarket for €2.19 & hardly any choice on the menu, however the locals all seemed to choose the house risotto. Be warned,... More

I had read reviews on this restaurant so when we visited Chiaramonte Di Gulfi I knew we would definitely visit this restaurant. It is very small only 20 covers. You walk through a serving area to get to the seating area. The service was great our waiter was friendly and really helpful. The food was amazing to start we had... More

My husband and I had lunch here during a visit to Chiaramonte Gulfi on a trip to Southeast Sicily. The town is worth a trip. Great value and probably the best meal we had on our trip to this part of the island that is not particularly accustomed to tourism and is lacking is restaurants as a result, especially compared...

We took a detour to Chiaramonte Gulfi on a whim, on our drive from Catania airport to our little B&B near Ragusa. Stopped close to the center of town and asked about a couple restaurants listed in our guide book; Majore turned out to be closest. This was our first meal in Sicily, and over the course of the following... More

This is a very small restaurant but with excellent food and service. The dining room is simple but airy and tastefully decorated. We could not manage the full 4 courses for lunch so left with a bill of less than 38EUR for 3 courses including wine. We loved it.
