This place had the best arancini and pizza! I wish I had known about this place when I first arrived! They were organized and the restaurant was clean! The arancini was to die for as it melted in your mouth- fresh! The pizza was delicious...More

Freshly made arancini which tastes amazing. One arancini is large enough to fill you up for lunch. I recommend the arancini with ragu.

This place has a homey feeling, and offers the local favorites. It's cheap for Taormina, and will let you have a quick fast bite without breaking your wallet, like the rest of the town. It's nothing special though. Go if you need to have an...More
