We had just come from a really really bad meal that was microwave and was very expensive and very small. So we were still hungry so we were walking back to are b&b and came across it and we had been in the day before...More

Food is very tasty, especially the rice balls. You can also find stuff like roasted chicken and potatoes which is always a safe bet. The price is relatively low especially compared to the average prices in Rome and customer service is good too.

Off the beaten path, inexpensive, delicious rice balls and pizza! If you are hungry after the Vatican you must eat here. You won't regret it.

Went to sample the arancini and they were really tasty. We tried a few types, I recommend the ragu and ham and cheese. It's in a lovely little area too so go and check it out.

Tried this place after reading another trip advisor review - not quite as close to the Vatican as they said, but well worth the trek! Just had a Ragu Aranchini with my boyfriend and it was incredible. On to the gelato next!

Very helpful staff - as a non Italian speaker we needed help to understand what flavours were in the food. The arancini are the best we've ever had. Had a massive dinner from them on our last night in Rome for less than 15 Euros....More

If you can't go to Sicily to get your Arancini fix, then get them here in Rome. This was my favorite place to eat in Rome, went several times on my trip. And when you finish your delicious rice balls, go next door for some...More

The ultimate place for arancini - so many different varieties - almost impossible to decide - everything was delicious

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every
shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and
gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
