Walk up the red carpet to the entrance entrance, into either a beautiful indoor restaurant, or on this evening, an equally beautiful garden restaurant. It's a little bit hard to find, but well worth the effort. About ten minutes walk from the main piazza. I certainly recommend a visit.

We came here as the #1 place on trip advisor was full with a 30 min wait. It's a little out of the way, but the little garden they accommodate you in to eat is lovely. The food was average, my pasta was really not cooked enough but I didn't send it back as it had taken long enough to... More

Since a long time I wanted to try this restaurant, hidden in the less visited part of the old Acireale town, intrigued because last year (but no longer this year) it was the first in the TA ranking of Acireale restaurants. After our dinner, I can say the food was excellent (although probably not exceptional), the value for money good,... More

Was intrigued by the rating and it's perfectly justified. Exquisite dining experience, very pleasant setting and a fantastic selection of Sicilian wines at reasonable prices. Must visit again...

Been to Vico Proiette as an alternative to an another restaurant which was closed on a Monday. Probably because it's rated #1 in Acireale but I was expected something better - for the place, the food and overall experience which were all Average. The antipasto was very good but the mains were definitely average. We stayed indoors not in gardens,... More

Agree with all the other excellent reviews. This place is a fantastic find, in a quiet backstreet. The courtyard is delightful and the food is excellent - and incredible at these prices. Would definitely recommend.

You might think the restaurant is closed if you arrive early. But do press the bell and they will open the door. Tables are set in an enclosed garden. We had an excellent dinner. The Classic Italian starter was delicious: you can try all the Italian goodies. I had the fish fritters. Also very good served with a nice bottle... More

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
