Arancini is the best we have had in Sicily so far! Super fresh and fast service. Pizza is also amazing and fresh. They are really busy so there are continuously hot fresh pizzas coming out of the oven. Super cheap as well. Arancinis are 2.50...More

We stopped by here for lunch after finding Da Cristina TripAdvisor. We had the 6 arancini tasters with white wine. The arancini were fantastic - it was an ideal spot for lunch!

Great and affordable quick meal in the heart of Taormina. The arancini were as good as any you will find in any nearby restaurants for a fraction of the price. Fast paced and hectic, take your number and be ready to order when called!
