The food was amazing, just as described in previous posts. Arancini and focaccia were really good with high quality ingredients. We tried the pistachio arancini which is quite unique and we're glad we did. It seems to be a family run business. The service was nice and friendly and the food is prepared with passion. Definitely worth a visit.

Great little place for takeaway pizza and Arancini balls which make for a very cheap lunch or evening meal. This was our first time to try Arancini and the selection is fantastic.

Awesome slices of pizza and arancini: great quality, low prices! Don't be fooled by the massive queues: service is swift and friendly.

What a fantastic place, pizza and arancini too die for. After looking at other reviews on here we had to try it out and we weren't disappointed. Definitely five stars!

What a find! Tiny and out of the way but the food is outstanding. The most fantastic Arancini ever. They also do pizzas by the score. Loads coming out of the ovens and handed over to eager customers who are sometimes queuing down the street to get their fill of this amazing food. Not only is it great but it's... More

For five Euros I had two giant arancini, each one as big as two fists. A very filling meal, nice tasting, customers appeared to be about equally tourists and locals. Very limited seating, but there are places nearby to sit and watch the ocean, or the tourists.

This place deserves its trip advisor ranking. We went in at lunchtime and the place was full of locals. There are a couple of tables to sit down at or you can take away. Make sure you try both the pizza and the arancini. Your trip won't be complete without it.

Located in a small street in the end of duomo piazza, this place serves the best arancini I've ever tried. They have a big oven that always prepairs fresh and really hot pizzas, sfoglies and arancini. The arancini with ragu is the best. You have to go after this place!!

Can only repeat what has been said previously...for a quick, cheap bite it's not to be missed. The arancini (deep fried, breadcrumbed rice filled balls) are very good and filling (don't over order), our favourite was the aubergine and cheese also the pizza is fine for the price. Sometimes queues of locals which says it all, impossible to eat so... More
