Excellent arancini - especially the ones with prawns. A good place for a quick bite, nothing fancy but good - always busy.

Whatever we choose, the food tastes excellent with reasonable price. But it always packed and (almost) no queueing system so we have to be aggressive, otherwise someone will happily cut our line. There is always an employee who is ready to clean the table once it is not used. Nice

Visited twice and loved the pizza slices and amazing arancini. Great for a quick bite and open all day unlike many restaurants which close in the afternoon.

It's open from around 10:00 in the morning and open all day through. This is actually helpful as many of restaurants and shops will close during afternoon (around 13:00-16:00 or 17:00) so if you want to grab a bite this place is one of the choices. I ate many alancini at different places and personally this place's alancini was one... More

Last year I went to Sicily for two weeks, but I think the best arancini I ate them here at Gastronomia Martorana in Lampedusa. The ones with ragu are my favorite and they oly cost 1,5 euro. I also tried the pizza, very good as well.

After reading the reviews I decided I needed to eat at this place. It wasn't bad at all, but to eat a cold parmigiana, when you are expecting something warm and delicious, was pretty disappointing. My husband's pasta was also OK, but the quantity of salt borderlined dangerous, a little bit more and it would had been uneatable. I would... More

All the food you'll find here is DEEEEP FRIED. Don't search for a choice of light meal, delicious arancini or crocchette will stay in your company and go up and down your stomach for alllll your afternoon.

Its hard to find the right words to express the quality and the taste of Martoranas's product. I am Italian and coming from a chef's family but I can tell that i've never taste a pasta like this, and also the "arancini" and all the other delicious food served here. Everyone should taste the "Pasta con melanzane e spada" Prices... More
