Accept bookings, the summer kitchen is open till midnight Description: in the heart of the historic town of Acireale, a short distance from the stunning baroque Acireale pearls, Old Aci originates. One of the most ancient Inns Throughout, our cuisine cleverly revisits the tastes of true Sicilian tradition, focusing on quality with typical products of first choice. "You will be greeted with great care and kindness of the highest order." We are young Sicilian entrepreneurs who believe blindly in the sense of hospitality within the restaurant, pointing to the great oneness of flavors of Sicilian enogastronomy.La"Vecchia Aci" has a dining room with a capacity of 70 seats and only in summer..The old Aci in the months of July and August closes for lunch but does weekly closing
