We went here a few times during our 7 day stay. The arancini are excellent. We usually had the original, which was minced meat and peas but then we tried the "norma" it has eggplant in it. It was to die for. Also the butter and prosciutto ones are fantastic. You can't go wrong with whatever you try, they're all... More

The Arancini from here are brilliant, but this is not a sit down restaurant - most definitely a take away. Good for a quick snack and lots of choice. Worth a visit if you want to grab something other than pizza or pasta.

This is a perfect spot to have a (budget) break in Taormina. There's more to offer then Arancini... but, being so delicious and made in the moment, the hard part will be to choose only one fom the menu!... And the price is fair: €2,50/piece or about €4 for menus including drink and chips. Soon in http://www.ourtravelingwithoutmoving.wordpress.com

This place is kinda hidden and you bave to climb a stair, but once you get there is totally worth it! Make sure you try a classic and a "norma"! You'll thank me later! ;)

it's on the main road in Taormina. It seems to be a very small place from outside, in the end it is ok. The arancini are prepared with fresh ingredients and in according with the sicilian tastes. They costs €2.5 per each for all the different types (around 7 arancini types)

These arancini are simply amazing! I had (several) portions of the eggplant ones, and attempted a spinach (I'm not a spinach fan, so I didn't eat this one). Crispy on the outside, and densely-packed with rice on the inside. The eggplant was in the very center with cheese. I wish they had more vegetarian varieties, though! I would love a... More
