Arancini At It's Best.

We love Arancini. They are a speciality in Sicily. Known as 'Little Oranges' they are deep fried rice balls with various fillings. I had mine with Ragu, the 'Other Half' had Cheese, Ham and Bechemal. The service was excellent but not too intrusive. We loved it.

Arancini are good. The location is superb if you can be there at sunset as you can sit on the low wall along the road and take in the sunset while eating your arancino.

Wonderful service. Served tea properly on a teapot. Friendly staff and not expensive. Good spot in the square to capture the views of the little harbour and lighthouse

As mentioned below a small hole in the wall cafe with some plastic tables and chairs outside affording good views of the small harbour and catching the afternoon sun. It provides a varied choice of Arancini's and Pizza slices at very reasonable levels. So perfectly reasonable for some low-cost snacks and beer after visiting Montalbano's house

I tasted one and kept going back for more- lots of different flavours! I particularly liked a swordfish one and an aubergine one! Very good prices too. Lovely view and in the evening you can enjoy them with a glass of wine.

A very simple “hole in the wall” cafe offering delightful Arancinis of various flavours cooked on the premises, and salads, with a few gifts. To find it you have to go along the seafront west from the Piazza del Faro, or down the tiny passage beside the tower in the square by Montalbano’s TV house. We go here every time... More
