You could be forgiven for thinking this Victoria Arcade spot, run by a pair of brothers, is all about the coffee. It does, of course, serve a decent cup of Joe but the main focus here? Sicilian street food.
That means a hefty list of arancino, filled with things like veal ragu, or ricotta, spinach and cheese, or butter, bacon, pistachio and basil pesto. Or Nutella, if you want. Lasagne features too, as well as parmesan and pesto ravioli, calzone and pizzetta.
Eight different granita are also available, alongside desserts such as cannolo, traditional Sicilian cassatina and fedora cake, made with ricotta and toasted almond flakes.

Taste it. Love it!

Hidden gem in Landon, this place proposes real Sicilian delicatessens and street food. The coffee is also amazing. Probably the best coffee shop and patisserie in UK
Best italian/sicilian food place this side of the river. Come here for proper Italian food (not only pizza and pasta). When the cannoli are filled with fresh homemade ricotta right before your eyes, you know you've come to the right place.
I am Sicilian and can guarantee thus is the best Sicilian food you can find in London! Fresh,tasty and the customer service is excellent!
Being half Sicilian living in Manchester, it was lovely eating there. I felt at home. Hope he manages to find a way to open up North!!! All the best!!! Xxxx
A little Sicily spot just two minutes walk from Victoria station. Proper Sicilian street food and sweets and great coffee too. My personal Shangri-La.
Arancini, cannoli, cassatelle di agira, tavola calda, granita con brioche hmmmmm ... etc etc that's love!!!!
Have been there once , tried different sorts or arancini and they were simply delicious .
The owner was also very friendly and nice , he put a children's channel on tv so my 2 years old could enjoy her meal better .
Will definitely come again soon!
So delicious and authentic - the only place I have found truly satisfying Arancini and Granita since falling in love with them in Sicily. Oh and of course the charming staff!
The food is just amazing: always fresh, made with top quality ingredients following traditional recipes. The staff is very friendly, smiling and providing a quick and effective service. Etna coffee brings the taste of Sicily right in the heart of London. Would give 6 stars if possible.
The best Sicilian street food shop in London and probably outside of Italy... thanks guys for helping us surviving!
Excellent food quality and excellent customer management. Arancini made with traditional recipe good and crispy , delicious cannoli served with a good quality coffee . Granita hundred percent Sicilian !!! And so much more.
I am Sicilian, my native city is the vibrant Catania on the slopes of Etna volcano. For years, the first thing I did once landed home was to eat a typical arancino, a refreshing granita or a sweet cannolo. You know, childhood memories, expat's nostalgia. Since Etnacoffee opened in London, I don't need to do it anymore because now I can find my local food in my new city :D
They are part of Sicily Culture: Catania has a long standing tradition of excellence in street food and they make Londoners discover it. My favorite arancino is stuffed full of aubergines and tomato sauce: it is named "Norma" as an homage to Catania's composer Vincenzo Bellini. I also like season typical sweets such as mulberry granita during Summer and chocolate "rame di Napoli" in October-November.
I would suggest them a bigger venue with a panorama, because Victoria Arcade is a bit small: a terrace in front of the Thames, or in a park would suit them better. I have been told that once a Japanese customer asked them where to sit in order to enjoy better their Sicilian food; they replied: "yes, sir, please have a seat on the left hand side of the Arcade, in front of the sea" and he just sat there :D It was ironic, sweet and poetic of both of them.
Well done guys
