We had diner in this Restaurant. It's a decent place with good italian food and good service. Kind of average, but nothing outstanding.

Thank you for choosing our restaurant, our goal is not to impress the customer but to offer typical and genuine dishes of the Sicilian tradition. There for a next holiday in Sicily and in the city of Acireale

Description
In the heart of the historic city of Acireale, just a stone's throw from the extraordinary pearls of the Baroque Aegean, originates "Vecchia Aci". One of the oldest Acesi inns, our kitchen wisely revisits the tastes of true Sicilian tradition, focusing on quality with top quality products. "You will be welcomed with primordial solicitude and kindness." We are young Sicilian entrepreneurs who blindly believe in the hospitality of their own restaurant, focusing on the great uniqueness of the flavors of Sicilian gastronomy. "Vecchia Aci" has an indoor hall with a capacity of 70 seats and only in the summer, an outdoor with 100 seats
