Great arancini, pizza and friendly service. In the heart of Taormina this small take out is a favourite with tourists and locals. Grab a freshly prepared, authentic Sicilian snack at a realistic price. Which we had a L'Arco in Australia!

We stopped by here one afternoon to grab a quick bite to eat, and ended up going back the next two days for more! The pizza was great, and only 3 euro for a slice!! The staff here is also extremely friendly (more than most places we visited in Taormina)

Found this place for a late lunch on our first day in Taormina - it was amazing. We had a spinach arancini and 2 pieces of pizza to share and it was more than enough food for both of us - added a drink and only spent 10 euros. Definitely worth the walk there!

This place offers a large range of pizza. It was good, but the dough of the pizza slices was too thick.

Ate here 3 times during the 6 nights we stayed in taormina.. what a find! The arancini were huge, delicious and the best I've ever eaten. The ragu aranici was rich and moorish and the spinach arancini oozed with cheese and was delicious! A very busy place popular with locals and you can see why! Only €2.50 per Arancini which... More

We had a very tasty lunch for two in Taormina, for €6. Enough said! Be aware you need to get a ticket number just inside the door on the left and may have to walt in a queue for 10 minutes. Very popular.

Finding somewhere for good quality quick street food can be hit and miss. For us this was a real find. I had the Arancino which was superb. My wife who cannot eat cheese asked the very friendly staff who directed her to Schiacciata which was also delicious. All totaled up to €7 with a bottle of water. Sat across from... More

This is a fast food type restaurants with two hightops to sit at. But the best pizza and they make their own dough and they make the best arrancini (rice balls). It is worth a visit or two

We tried the food here several times during our stay in Taormina and it was delicious! We had veggie pizza and spaghetti arancini but our favourite was the eggplant arancini. The staff are extremely friendly and recommended which veggie food we could have. There were plenty of veggie choices. We will definitely eat here again when we next visit Taormini.
