My friends and I ate at Vico Proiette upon recommendation of the hotel personnel we were staying at. There was a nice variety of both seafood and meat dishes. We had one of the best meals of our trip there. The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable for what we ate. We had a fabulous antipasti "Carrellata... More

We had dinner here twice during our one week stay in Acireale. Easy to see why it is ranked so high. The inner courtyard where we ate on both occasions is delightful. The dining room looks pretty smart as well, but in mid-October it was still very comfortable sitting outside. The staff were courteous and helpful, not always our experience... More

This was a nice place to go. Meals about 15 euro entree about 10 euro. Wine about 12 euro a bottle. The restaurant is in the internal courtyard of a building which was a lovely setting. We had a nice meal. Some more happy than others. Hence the less than great rating.

Very good, fresh and original italian food. Excellent and discrete service. Located in a backyard with lovely flower gardens. We loved the degustazione antipasti rustici, the pasta dishes and the dessert. A well assembled wine choice accompanies the nice menue. Definitely a place to enjoy an evening in this area.

Nice place and very tastefull dishes. Congratulations to the owners, I really hope to return one day there and eat their "primi piatti" and the meat dishes. The tipical Sicilian food taste.

We had an amazing dinner at Vico Proiette. The seafood antipasto was sublime. Primi pastas were generous and gourmet. This old monastery-turned-restaurant has an ethereal feeling that is magnified by the delicious vino locale. Service was discreet and attentive. Highly recommended.
