My husband and I were staying nearby and after a week of travelling in Sicily, we were exhausted and too full to eat much more so we went to Café Touring for what we thought would be a quick bite. It turned into a meal of multiple arancini and pastries and a bottle of wine despite our efforts to “eat... More

We ate there two times. Once a coffee after relax in near garden and before leaving Palermo we went there specialy for Arancini. They have the biggest Arancini in Sicily and call it Arancini Bomba. It's the biggest and nice taste for only 1,8e.

If you need a bite to eat, coffee cake or gelato they are available all day at the Bar Touring. It is good for a lunch stop, afternoon snack or late night drink. Fast turnover on fresh items, brilliant service and the kind of bustle which tells you that you are in the right spot.

My boyfriend and I came to Bar Touring to try the famous arancini and they didn't disappoint. My boyf is Sicilian and even he admitted it was one of the best arancini he'd ever tried. We went for the classic and the ham and cheese and we loved them both. They're so big as well - definitely good value for... More

This place is famous for its huge arancini, which are really quite good. We also tried some of their mignon (mini) gelato sweets, which were excellent. Yum!

Not sure how to spell it but we came to try this very large hand held stuffed rice ball. We tried two types: ham-cheese and the meat. Not as crispy as a croquette but very filling and very good. Would have loved to try some of the other great looking sweets but we left very full. Servers did not speak... More

Have visited this place three times now, the first after a visit to the incredible Botancial Gardens. I was advised to have Sausage the first time and on my second visit was going for 'Funghi' only to be recommended Spinach. Always listen to the staff. They were delicuous and a lovely authentic shape. My third visit I had Sausage again... More

I had Cappuccino and pastries, both were very good and the service was very good, too. A good place for a break.

Although it seems like one of these touristic shops you have to avoid, Touring is a really nice bar. Local people told us we could find one of the best arancine there and it is true! The sweets where also very good! There is also space you can sit and watch Piazza San Domenico and Via Roma. I recommend it
