Very good and cheap Sicilian street food. The place is small, hidden but clean and owners are friendly.

Tiny, spotlessly clean, 'street food' takeaway hidden up an opening near Politeana. We didn't have much but it was delicious and fresh. Usually only open 8.30 - lunch.

Very good street food to go. Unfortunately no one spoke English. We were depended on the help of two English speaking citizens. We had Arancini with mozzarella. Recommended.
