Best arancini in Palermo. We will be stopping again before we leave. Made fresh in front of you and cheap as chips. Don’t buy from any of the stalls elsewhere.

Don't miss this place! It's cheap, it's fresh and packed full of flavour. So many flavours to choose from, I wish I could go back and try more. We tried Arancini all over Sicily and these guys definitely topped it. The guys are super friendly...More
