Arancini, deep-fried Sicilian rice balls, underpin most meals at this chilled neighbourhood hangout. They’re served in wraps, with stew, with salad, or all on their own. The filling, meaty wraps are our usual go-to at lunchtime, but on Sunday mornings, the egg-based breakfast wraps are endorsed as a hangover cure by the Royal Society of Drunkards.
