Arancina or Arancino? We like the ArancinO Messina.

L 'Arancinoit is a specialty of Sicilian cuisine, and is a typical product of the Messina rotisserie.

In western Sicily it is called arancina and has a ball shape like an orange; while in eastern Sicily it is called arancino and has a cone shape as if to recall the Etna volcano.

The main feature of theMessina Arancinois his ragù, a sauce rich in tomato and very tasty and slowly cooked pork.

In the 70s and 80s theMessina Arancinoit was a real delicacy from Pippo Nunnari's famous rotisserie, no true Messina can have forgotten it. It is no coincidence that a typical phrase from Messina is“From quannu ghiudiu Nunnari nuddu sapi fari chiù arancini in Messina”.Translation: "since Nunnari closed, no one knows how to make arancini in Messina".
