Maybe even in Sicily! They are HUGE! They have a variety of flavors but our favorite is the traditional with ragu! We got a little hungry after wondering around all day, just one of these hit the spot with two of us!!!

We use this bar often when in Palermo. The last time was pre theatre, and the place was buzzing with well dressed theatre goers. It's an elegant place, serving great Sicilian cakes. On this occasion we had a small marzipan flavoured biscuit cake, and a flat biscuit, with our espresso. Delicious.

Close to the very heart of the city, a place you can't go wrong for a good coffe and tipical sicilian sweets. The cannoli are extremely good.

Excellent arancina, i love the cheese and spinach. The cafe is beautifully decorated, mostly in white, with antique glass on the walls. I was walking down the street and was lured in by the ornate gelato case, and the beautiful pastries. Great coffee drinks as well.

The recommendation for Bar Touring came from our Sicilian host and it was spot on. We did not find another Arancini to compare. The desserts were equally delicious. Tried an arancini in Erice and we were so disappointed. Bar touring also has some casual outdoor tables that are convenient for an outdoor dessert stop.

After my flight from Rome, I checked in to my hotel and asked for some place nearby to grab a quick bite. They sent me to Bar Touring, which was centrally located so it was easy to find. I ordered an arancina and a panino. Similar to the other reviews, the arancina was not warmed all the way through but... More

Whenever we visit Family in Palermo, my first breakfast is always Cornetto con Ricotta from this branch of Bar Touring! It is all I can talk about on the Flight and on arriving in this great City!

You do feel in the minority sitting in the (very few) seats, as so many locals pop in here for a quick bite and a shot of espresso. We were surprised that, come mid-afternoon, they had sold out of so many of the famous arancini. Especially as they are open late at night. But we were happy to try one... More
