Very good for tasty lunch food including arancini. The only downside was the lack of sitting place, only four tables.

We went there for a quick in-and-out after having heard about their traditional Sicilian arancini. What can i say about their arancini? Very good, yummy, mouth watering, spectacular!

We found this place via Tripadvisor and were very happy we decided to go for it. Very friendly staff, great variety of pizzas, arancini and schiacciata. The best part is the affordable price vs que good quality!

I love pizza but this was the worst pizza I have ever eaten. The first pizza in my life I threw away. Zero sauce and the worst quality cheese that was burnt.

Lovely little cafe. We had breakfast/lunch here on three occasions. They have a range of huge arancinis - we tried the pistachio, aubergine, ragu, anchovies which were all tasty and filling (and very good value). Nice spot for people watching in the morning. Would recommend...for breakfast or lunch (other options include pizzas, pastries and other sicilian plates).More

If you are looking for a quick lunch with a home-made touch this is the place. They offer a good selection of arancini as well as other traditional and simple Sicilian/Italian street food. Prices are reasonable and quality is there. They also have a few...tables where you can sit and eat what you buy.More

Best cheap bite in Taormina Well known as an expensive town in Da Cristina ARANCINI balls are the best. I do not recommend the pizza as it is average but the price is good 2,5 for ARANCINI and 2,5 for pizza too. I recommend the...spinaci and melanzane ARANCINIMore

It’s probably the best place to try arancini in Taormina, but they serve also pizza and panzerotti. Even locals go there, which is always a good sign. It’s a sort of takeaway place with few small tables and it gets crazy at meal times. We...had to queue for 40 minutes. However, I must say it was worth it because the food was good and the price reasonable. I had arancini (a kind of rice balls) filled with aubergines and spinach and they were very tasty. Good choice, go there!More
