The Arancini from here are brilliant, but this is not a sit down restaurant - most definitely a take away. Good for a quick snack and lots of choice. Worth a visit if you want to grab something other than pizza or pasta.

These arancini are simply amazing! I had (several) portions of the eggplant ones, and attempted a spinach (I'm not a spinach fan, so I didn't eat this one). Crispy on the outside, and densely-packed with rice on the inside. The eggplant was in the very...More
