We drove out from Ragusa Ibla ( about 30 minutes) and were well rewarded for our effort. The restaurant specialises in meat ,specifically pork and really offer a wonderful and tasty range of choices. We tried the house speciality of Costata Ripiena, risotto with pork and pork fillet. All were excellent. A number of patrons appeared to be locals ie regulars along with tourists. Service was excellent and prices very reasonable. Parking was a minor challenge although it was only a relatively short walk from public carpark near town entrance on road from Ragusa.

This restaurant has a long tradition, since 1896, and we are not at the 4th generationof the family running the restaurant, with the same set of rustic, flavorful recipe. The small menu is a celebration of pork. Starting with their own production of cold cuts and pork terrine, moving onto primi such as ricotta ravioli with pork ragout, or pork risotto, or pasta alla norma. To then end with stuffed pork ribs, sausages, meatball, and more... We had a starter, 2 primi (ravioli and risotto), a sausage, the stuffed pork rib, a salad, and a bottle of Nero d'avola. The whole large meal for 2 was only 41 euros.
Besides this, the ambiance is very nicely designed, welcoming and clean, and the service is warm, flexible and friendly.
I could only advise meat lovers to visit this place, as it is like living and experiencing a piece of culinary history.

We drove from Scicli to Chiaramonte golfi one rainy day in March specifically to eat at Majore, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is on a alley-like street off of a main square, and is actually comprised of several buildings on either side of the street. Waiters rush back and forth across the street from the dining room to the butcher counter, and the washrooms are located around the corner and upstairs in yet another building! We ate in the tiny dining room, entry to which requires walking through the kitchen area. No secrets here!
We tried 2 starters (risotto alla majore and ravioli maile) and 3 mains ( pork entrecote, sausage, and falsomagro alla siciliana) - each was distinct and delicious. We were the only non-locals dining, and noticed that many of the others had the risotto or a soup as a starter, followed by the falsomagro or ravioli. We also bought some sausage to take home and prepare the next day, which was also delicious and inexpensive. Waiters are very attentive and formal by nature, but it is clearly a happy, well-run family business. I would return in a second.

We decided to have our easter sunday lunch at this great place, had a good time, wonderful food, the quality of everything was impressive, and the price we paid for this was very acceptable. We were treated very well, service even though a packed out restaraunt was excellent

Fancy a specialty restaurant offering food made with pork? Then you have found it. Portions are abundant and selection is wide.
