Having tried arancini on a previous trip I was eager to try again. We were recommended to this place by another restaurant who did not have it on their own menu. It is small - only a few tables to sit at. -Most people buy...More

The locals go here & it's a busy place. The chocolate croissants are very good, although I think the filling was Nutella, which seems to be pervasive. The best though was the little pies with the most delicate pastry & stuffed with a variety of...More

Great pizza very close to main street. Fast paced place, very friendly owners. There is a couple of bar stools inside but mostly people take food out. 2 euro/slice and all of the above make this place an excellent option for a quick on the...More

We picked up a focaccia pizza on our way to the beach for a quick lunch snack. You can see them making the food freshly in front of you. Absolutely delicious. So much flavor and so cheap, you'd be a fool to miss out on...More

Not the best pizza in Italy or anything exciting like that, but more than adequate, tasty slices of pizza at just €2/slice with friendly service and you can sit on the steps of the fountain to eat it.

We looked at this pizzeria because it was so highly rated here but it's a takeaway really! A couple of high bar type tables and a few high stools don't make a restaurant. They may do great pizzas.....

If you're looking for some authentic food for take away or a quick bite, go to Da Cristina. Try the arancini (a typical Sicilian ball of rice, meat, and cheese). They're some of the best I've had, and I've tried them in Palermo, Catania, Venice,...More

I knew that I had chosen the right place for my arancini when I saw local construction workers going in to order their lunch too. The Arancini were hot and fresh and absolutely delicious. We had the traditional and the pistachio.
