Visited this place twice which we never do on a holiday but who can resist deep fried risotto balls crammed packed with oozing delicious fillings served with ice cold beer and so cheap you'd be mad not to visit,

Never tried this type of Italian food, but was not disappointed. Me and my wife asked for "Uno di tutti" (one from everything) and paid like 15€ with beer. Nearly could not finish it, we literally rolled home cause were so full... Everything is so...More

At "al Vicolo dei capricci" you can taste fantastic arancini. The best ones are those filled with pistachio and "alla norma". The staff is really friendly. I would really recommend it in case you are in Giardini Naxos.

The Arancini el Ragu is a game changer. Not to be missed - you'll find this gem hidden away in an alleyway.
