Ristorante Majore in Chiaramonte Gulfi

Ristorante Majore in Chiaramonte Gulfi

Ristorante MajoreLast week I was in Sicily and I had the chance to visit this lovely restaurant in Chiaramonte Gulfi, not far from Ragusa in the South of Sicily.

A friend leaded us to this precious “pork temple” where the entire menu is designed around the pig.

I tried the three most popular dishes (suggested by the owner) and their delicious Red Wine, a local Nero d’Avola.

The Antipasti was formed by a trio of Pork Salami accompanied with a local bread. I loved all of them and I couldn’t stop eating.

The second dish was a Primo, a delectable risotto, called Risotto alla Majore, with a pork ragù sauce. This dish made them popular in the area and it’s easy to understand why! I’m a big fan of Risottos and this one was one of the best I’ve ever had. Very rich in flavours and perfectly “mantecato“, which means it had a creamy texture exactly how a perfect italian risotto should have.

If you can “survive” after the first two courses (portions are abundant) you should try the stuffed pork chops. Just amazing! I had to share it with my wife as I couldn’t finish it.

The local wine that they serve, vino della casa, is an incredible Nero d’Avola, which is produced on the island.

I was surprised when I received the bill: only 30 euro in 2 (6 dishes + wine and water). Not bad at all!
