Through a tip of Patricia (the owner of our hotel) we went to this trattoria because they had the beste Arancini. And they surely did. WOW! Just go here and try it. Especially the pistachio one. ;)

We njoy a lot local cuisine in that family run restaurant. All freshly cooked and baked. Behind the corner take away bar with plenty of people sitting outside. You want save money take it away but if you want more choice and served at the table go inside by stairs to restaurant. Caponata and canollo best ever eaten...

Place looks nice. Tables are only out side. Arancini was not bad. Pizza was not very good. Menu is informative. You can easy understand what you order.

We stopped for a quick bite for lunch and had some pizza al taglio and arancini. Both were excellent and prices are modest.

Our local tour guide told us that if his own Nona could not cook for him then this was his next best thing to eat! He wasn't wrong.
