Overpriced and tasteless

Usare sale e spezie e abbassare i prezzi.

Good vegan arancine

8 euros for one arancina is honestly quite a lot, but they are actually really big, so that mitigates the impact.

It's so nice to have so many vegan options, and the ones we tried were really good. Perhaps there could have been more filling, most of the time we were just biting on rice.

I really liked the cazzilli, they were very delicate and tasty.

Pros: Cazzilli are really delicate , Owner was very kind

Cons: Arancine could have more filling, Pricy (both food and drinks)

Arancini veg a Siracusa

Ottima la consistenza dell’arancino senza glutine. La farina di mais ha fatto sì che non fosse assolutamente unto. Ho provato quello al pistacchio - molto buono anche se avrei preferito un po’ più ripieno. Porzioni molto abbondanti (400gr per arancino!). Prezzo: 8€. Ci sono 6 opzioni vegane.

Pros: 6 opzioni vegane , Panatura leggera grazie alla farina di mais , Porzioni molto abbondanti

Cons: Prezzo alto (8€), Poca farcitura

This was way to overpriced. Do not pay 8 € for an arancino...!

Arancine Veg a gogo’!

Ben 5 opzioni di arancini vegan ! Fritti al momento dimensione maxi il che forse giustifica il prezzo - 8€ - ed in effetti con uno ci si sazia. Provato quella al pistacchio e l’ortolana, più gustoso quest’ultimo

Only ok, bit over priced

Unfortunately i didnt love these, and for the price it was i was a bit dissapointed. Perhaps it was the flavour we got but these Arancini were huge menaing it lacked a lot of crunch, it lacked a fair bit of flavour and for 8 euro i was expecting the best Arancini I've ever tasted! I much prefered the articoke Arancini from sale e olio however there are a lot more options here. Just couldn't justify buying another one to try for that price.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Gluten free

Cons: Expensive , Bland

Great taste!

We‘ve tried several arancini and the croquettes, all of them were very delicious! It‘s a bit overpriced but they are very filling and worth a try.

It was nice but needed a sauce or something to dip it in

I enjoyed this and liked that there were a fair few vegan options. However, it would have been better to break up the flavour with a vegan aioli or a tomato-based dipping sauce. They are very filling.

Pros: Very big and filling, A fair few vegan options

Cons: Needs a sauce or something to go with it.

Tasty but I think overpriced

Fresh and filling. But I don't understand why the vegan version is more expensive since it doesn't contain any special ingredients.

Huge arancini

Several vegan arancini, we had pistacchio and grilled veggies. They are freshly made what is a huge plus but it takes a little longer. They are a bit more expensive than arancini usually are but they are also huge and very filling. Has a little outdoor seating area.

Great Arancini

I had the pistachio one which was freshly made and delicious. Even though it was huge and one of the best Arrancinis I had it is not worth 7 Euros.

Sadly not as good as expected

I had a vegan Arancini with spinach and olives which was quite delicious. My friend had one with spicy potato cream and chili which tasted mostly like pepper. They were freshly prepared, but quite expensive.

Pros: Freshly prepared, Lots of vegan options

Cons: Expensive

Great arancini!

I had an arancino with funghi porcini and it was soooo delicious! They would have had 6 vegan choices, all for 6 Euros as far as I can remember. This may seem pricy, but the arancini are very big (300g), so one arancino is a filling meal! They aren't pre-prepared like the ones you can buy at some bars, but made upon request, hot and tasty!

Vegan Arancino, Yes please!

I visited Siracusa with a friend for a weekend recently and liked it so much I returned for a vacation with my husband. I couldn’t wait to introduce Steve to the vegan arancino restaurant also. With a half a dozen vegan choices, there is something for everyone here. I like the idea of carrying my street food around the city but since Steve has Parkinson’s disease, it was really helpful to have outdoor tables. Being in beautiful Ortigia, it is also good for people watching. I’m a huge fan of pistachio so the pistachio & creamy potato arancino is my favorite. 7€ is quite steep for a fried rice ball but it is consistent with the tourist pricing charged for virtually everything on the island! Not every place here offers vegan options so I’m always happy to support those that make an effort.

Pros: Vegan pistachio! , Many vegan-friendly options including beer, Authentic Sicilian street food

Cons: Tourist pricing!

Not the best arancino

I understand that having gluten free products is expensive but in this case the price is free/four time what it should be. An arancino in other places costs around 2-3€ and is twice as good than this one. I’ll give them 3 stars out of 5 because they do have many vegetarian offers and they very kind with customers.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian options , Kind owners

Cons: Too expensive

Lots of vegan and GF options

Traditional sicilian food. It’s similar to any other street-style spot in italy. Easy to take and go or eat on at the tables. Seemingly no indoor seating. Each one is 7€ (in 2021). They are quite large. They also have other stuff like spaghetti and coffee. Easy walk to places to swim and sights to see also.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Not all vegan

So good!

Chanced across this place today when we were all flagging and in need of a snack lunch. We had assumed we wouldn't be able to sample Sicilian arancina as it was all cheese or meat so were excited to find this place. They had about 8 or 10 vegan options. We tried 3 different ones and they were all DELICIOUS!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Fresh and tasty, Reasonably priced for quick and easy food

Discriminative and unfair prices

I am so sad to make this review, as I am Italian, but the experience I had today really deserve to be told. The discrimination of selling a gluten free/vegan Arancin* for the price of 6€ is unbelievable considering that in the rest of Sicily for a non-vegan/gluten-free one, the price is around 1,50€ (so 4 times less). In the shop the guy was justifying the price as “quality products”, “not trash food”, but as far as I can say, the money are not worth it. And of course if you are vegan/ceoliac you don’t have so many choices and I pretty sure they are making money because of this. It’s really sad, I am really disappointed, this is discriminating. Do not go there.

Propriétaire très agréable et nourriture délicieuse ! C'est génial de trouver ce genre de cuisine italienne vegan et sans gluten ! Les Arancini sont très copieux (300 à 400gr)

Pros: Plusieurs options vegan et sans gluten
