About IL Vicolo
Il Vicolo first opened its doors up a cafe & wine bar on buttermilk walk mid October 2011. Serving minestrone, bruschetta by day & Italian cheese, charcutterie and a nightly changing menu offering seasonal pastas, risotto & rustic delights. Also stocking Prosecco, Aperol & Campari and 50 Italian wines!
With only 24 seats and 20 by the glass, it defied logic. Passion, heart and soul all mixed together offering rustic Italian fare, with a strong southern influence. It worked and we spent two and a half happy years on the edge of St Augustine Street before moving to our current location on the banks of the river Corrib, in the basement of the Bridgemills building.
Our menu today has evolved into a contemporary Italian kitchen with a mix of seasonal Cicchetti, pastas, risotto, fish and meat. Our wine list is 100% Italian and now boasts over 75 wines spanning from the north tip of Alto Adige to the boot of Puglia and the island of Sicily.
We are passionate about everything Italian and use the best of Irish produce, local producers and the best exports the Italian peninsula has to offer. With live jazz every Sunday and the trickle of the river Corrib while you eat in the wonderful surroundings of the old flour mill, il Vicolo offers you a unique experience to enjoy the best Italy has to offer on the Wild Atlantic way.
Great service and excellent wine
Fabulous Restraursnt. The food and service was excellent. Lovely wine. Busy with a great atmosphere . I would highly recommend.
Lovely atmosphere and staff are excellent
The aubergine lasagne is amazing!
Warm cosy welcoming atmosphere. Great central location. Good food. Excellent service.
My team from Europe said it was amazing, everything was perfect.
Service and atmosphere were excellent. The food was disappointing. Rack of lamb as small with 4/5 baby carrots. For the price it was not good enough. I would estimate less than 3 euros of ingredients
We had dinner at Il Vicolo on our last night in Galway prior to returning to the US. We had a fabulous meal - excellent food and drinks, friendly and attentive staff, great ambiance, and we were lucky enough to be in town for the Galway Jazz Festival. We enjoyed great music to accompany our meal. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. We will recommend Il Vicolo to anyone we know who is traveling to Galway! Thank you!!!!
Fantastic meal and the atmosphere was wonderful. Grilled calamari and linguine with prawns and mussels was excellent!
Went for the early bird option, great value for great food!

Best restaurant in Galway
Such beautiful decor. Romantic space. The terrace above the river is fab. Food was out of this world! Gorgeous wine too. And staff lovely while very professional. Wish I could go weekly! Blue cheese salad was unreal. As were polenta fries and gnocchi. Delish!
Incredible food in a wonderful setting!
Excellent food. The only small problem was that the waitress didn’t split the bill properly for 2 of us but it wasn't a big deal. Food, drink, service all excellent. The Linguine with prawns and mussels was really excellent ! We were on our way to a concert and the quality of the early meal and atmosphere put us in good form for a lovely night !
