Went here for lunch after reading about it. The perfect choice for fast and cheap eats which are actually delicious. About 6 different arancini are made, many pizza and other baked goods. Arancini are larger than we thought, and 2 people can sufficiently share 3 arancini. 4 would be too much. Perfectly cooked rice balls, made with various additional veggies, and fired to crisp perfection. Not too heavy, not too sticky. Sublime!

You just cannot beat this place for taste, quality and exceptional value. Both the fast food counter and the little self-service restaurant will quickly satisfy the hungriest tummy. The arancini and cannoli are to die for. Breakfast at Bam-Bam Bar and a late lunch here is an unrivalled combo. Must do.

This is a place filled with locals catching up and white collar workers having lunch away from work. Go to the counter at the end of the street not the sit down part. Sicilian street food at its best. Lunch is possible here for under €5 (drink inc beer and a slice of pizza or arancini). Fab, very unpretentious, delicious and fully of the vibrancy of Sicily.
