Arancina is family run Italian that has aspirations to be a big franchise, and they've already begun to expand with their concept of fresh Italian food on the move. They sell a host of snacks such as the Arancina that they're named after, a rice ball filled with ragu and an assortment of pizzas by the slice and confectionaries.
Having been overdosing on the Sopranos recently I felt an urge to pop into Arancine for some Cannoli. Their Cannoli are really rich, and really big. The photos don't do them justice, one is almost a meal on it's own. Cannoli should be bannned, they're dance with death, they hurt so good. You know once you have ingested that the ever looming heart-attack will be hard and fast. Recommended.
TRIVIA: They named a Sandwich here after my friend Dr. Simon Godley, the infamous Dentist-Comedian, ask for 'Doc Simon's Sandwich'.
