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, the service a little slow (50 mns between the arrival of the first course and of the main dish).
The location is charming, in a green courtyard in a historic tenement (given the Acireale climate, this courtyard can be used for most of the year instead of taking refuge in closed rooms).
We have experienced the following main courses: seafood linguine, "cremolato" lemon rice, the tasty "Vico Proiette" linguine (among many ingredients, anchovies and whole shelled almonds). As main courses, mixed grill and baked sea bass. Finally, delicious almond frozen desserts and almond ice cream.
Final bill, all included, 105 € for four people, so just over 25 Euros per person. Certainly the dishes I mentioned are worth the bill.

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, and again the decor is nothing beyond the ordinary. Ultimately it was a good value meal - prices cheap - which I would recommend but not as the best night out.

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 of Sicilian white Etna wine.
