Arancini in Boston

Hi, I will be in Boston in a few weeks and would like to try some arancini. Would love some recommendations. Thanks.

  1. the ones at umbertos on hanover are huge and yummy

    1. Galleria Umberto (big huge yummy monsters) and Teatro (much more delicate) make my favorites.

      1. Third on Umberto. The one problem is that this place (on Hanover Street in the North End) is only open for lunch, and they shut down when they run out of food, so be prepared to be hungry for arancini between, say, 11:30 and 1:30 Monday through Saturday. They may be open a bit later than that, but chances are good they'll be out of arancini.

        1. I like the ones at Umberto, too. I also like the ones at Pescatore in the Ball Square section of Somerville, and their hours--and parking situation--are much less of a hassle than Umberto.

          1. even better than umberto's arancini is vinny's at night's arancini. it's divine. vinny's is in east somerville, just a few blocks from the orange line (sullivan square).
