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.
