arancino 4.jpeg


Arancino (or arancina) is a specialty of Sicilian cuisine. It is a small ball of fried rice, 8-10 cm in diameter, stuffed with meat sauce; other times with tomato sauce, mozzarella, peas or other compounds. The name derives from the typical shape and color, reminiscent of an orange.
In the eastern part of the island the arancini can also have a conical shape.
