It is an unattractive place where they sell pizza cut. It is very good and very cheap. With vegetables, ham, etc. they are all very tasty

We went to Taormina, we found a nice place to eat arancini. Pistacchio arancini are the best. Pistacchio focaccia is pretty good. The restroom is very small. It is in the heart of Taormina

This was the first time we had arancini and we became addicted. Absolutely loved it. It’s a lovely little place and excellent service. Oh and the pizza is great too.

Recommended for the best arancini which is absolutely correct. It’s always a great sign when lots of locals are there. 2 parts to the establishment one homemade yummy food restaurant and the other the arancini pizza slice bar. Fabulous staff and incredible food.

We had a great lunch at Da Cristina yesterday. The arancini are absolutely incredible. We had the ragu and prosciutto cheese arancinis and one was better than the other. You must try this out!

Just a humble bakery but very famous. The six arancini tasting menu with wine thrown in is a delight. Imaginative flavours without being too way out. The best rice balls around

This Sicilian style fast-food outlet just below the Piazza Duomo is the perfect place to try Arancini. Freshly prepared on the premises, there is a choice of five fillings and in spite of being deep fried they are not at all greasy. They are bought...More

Noisy and wonderful atmosphere with traditional Sicilian fast food and drinks. Our 10- and 12-year old loves the Rice balls.
