Roman-style pizzeria serving Sicilian deli items alongside rectangular ‘alla pala’ pizzas

A family-run, Roman-style pizzeria serving Sicilian deli items alongside rectangular ‘alla pala’ pizzas. It's fiercely authentic, so expect handmade pizza dough, Arborio rice for the arancini and an emphasis on provenance when it comes to the produce. Many of the recipes and techniques have been passed down by Nonna, too. 

The pizzas range from marinaras and margheritas to calzones and capricciosas, with the opportunity to create your own, too. The rest of the menu is short, with lasagnes and caprese salads alongside arancina-style garlic bread and melanzane alla Parmigiana - oven-baked layers of aubergine with tomato sauce and mozzarella. 

An all-Italian wine list complements Bira Moretti, cans of San Pellegrino, Santal juices and traditional Italian coffee.

Arancina says
When Edo and Michele Mortari, two brothers from Rome, set off from home in an orange Fiat 500 for the bright lights of London, they never could have dreamed of the success that Arancina could bring them. They opened their first branch in Notting Hill Gate in 2005 and a second swiftly followed.

It's a local stalwart and great fun, relaxing place to do for a coffee, snack, drink or meal. The staff are always nice and the food is great

Cheap and cheerful but with incredible authenticity. Good honest pizza!
Espresso is the best this side of town. And the Canoli are something else...
