This is a good place to try "street food" with a place to sit inside if you want. The staff speak English and are helpful. Two of us are our fill for 12 euros.

Just had an espresso and cannoli here. Great vibe, live music in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. Nice time.

Great Sicilian street food in an historic, bustling environment. Nothing fancy, but dependably good, honest Sicilian specialties, in a setting where you feel like you are going back in time to Sicily long ago.
