Tried this place after reading another trip advisor review - not quite as close to the Vatican as they said, but well worth the trek! Just had a Ragu Aranchini with my boyfriend and it was incredible. On to the gelato next!

Very helpful staff - as a non Italian speaker we needed help to understand what flavours were in the food. The arancini are the best we've ever had. Had a massive dinner from them on our last night in Rome for less than 15 Euros....More

Discovered this place (Sicilian specialties) some years ago and every time I am in the area, I stop by for a quick bite consisting of an arancina (clear preference for the one with eggplant) and an order of panelle (chick-pea fritters). The food here is...More

These arancini are stuffed rice balls, delicious and interesting. We tried arancini with several kinds of stuffing and we liked them all. I personally love to try local things when I'm in a new country, it is part of the whole travel experience and pleasure....More

My husband and I weren't expecting a ton from the little joint, but we were pleasantly surprised. They have a ton of different items that encompass all kinds of dietary needs. Their caponata and zucchini and rice salads are the BOMB. Super cheap, too. Better...More

Arancini are traditional sicilian fried rice balls stuffed with whatever you can imagine. Ragù arancini are stuffed with minced meat, tomato sauce and peas. It became my main food source for a week. At 2.5€ a piece, I got a fantastic deal for a quick...More

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
