Really good!

Stop in this place if you get a chance. The unassuming little bar dishes out some of the best arancini and pastries in town. It has many locations throughout the city and is often packed. Food prepared with attention, care and Sicilian pride.

The perfect place to enjoy arancini and traditional Sicilian sweets. Most amiable staff, though can hardly speak English, but ready to assist in every possible way.

Inconspicuous bar away from main tourist area, this is THE place to go for arancini (meat/cheese/vegetable and rice croquettes). House speciality is 'bomba' version, i.e. twice as big as a normal one and enough for lunch on its own. Most of the trade is locals, many takeaways, with only a few tables, but turnaround is quick. Staff friendly and helpful,... More

On recomendation of my hostel I came here with friends and we tried each of the arancine - they were massive and cheap but best of all full of flavour. We ate standing up at the little tables out the front, facing the gardens on the other side of the street. Service wasn't as friendly as other places I went... More

The cashier was very arrogant and rude in this beautiful bar. Lovely snacks and good ice cream available.

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.
