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.
We had a fabulous evening, great atmosphere, great food & wine!
Loved it. The food, wine, staff were all wonderful. Could not fault it.
Both the waitresses who attended to us were very pleasant and made our dining experience! the food was excellent!
A lovely evening with friends with amazing food, wine and fantastic service!
My girlfriend and I had an amazing meal and enjoyed the atmosphere with live jazz. Food and wine were excellent and full of flavor. I hope to make it back again soon!
Lovely restaurant with great character and delicious food.
Good food at reasonable prices with good service and cosy atmosphere. Well worth a visit
Very limited menu for kids. Food was too salty. I did my booking on line and requested candle on the dessert for my husbands birthday, but special request box is pointless as it was not delivered. As well food was overpriced. However wine and atmosphere were great.
Fantastic food, good service, great atmosphere. Will definitely come again
Very disappointed with our table despite having our in a request for a nice table for my husbands birthday. We were literally on top of the table beside us. Also were shocked to have been presented with our bill even though we hadn’t requested it. Overall a very disappointing night.
I can't recommend IL Vicolo highly enough. Mandy is amazing to deal with. So customer focused. The food was plentiful and delicious. The service was fast and friendly and the wine, i have never tasted anything like it. It was light and fruity and i would go back just for the wine! Absolutely brilliant atmosphere. If anyone is looking to entertain for business or pleasure this is the place to go.
Stunning table at the large window overlooking the water on Saturday night. The dinner, cocktails & wine were delicious and there were plenty of options.
Service and food were excellent. Some things on the menu are expensive but overall good value.
Thanks for looking after us the food was delicious our server was great she recommended two very nice bottles of wine. We will be back.
As s regular client it never fails to meet expectations- last night was no exception - wonderful- la serata eta non e una esceptione
Romantic restaurant by the river, food was great and friendly staff
Delicious meal in relaxing atmosphere- very attentive staff. Prawn risotto particularly fabulous! Most enjoyable evening, thank you.
I couldn't rate Il Vicolo highly enough. The food, the ambience and the staff all top class. Beautiful little restaurant with amazing food and scenic location in the heart of Galway. And of course like any good restaurant it's staff to match the high standard of it's food. I super enjoyable meal and evening in Il Vicolo and we will definately be visiting again! :-) -)
Great food, wine and atmosphere.
Great Italian food served with italian flair and quality, relaxing ambience, highly recommended
Ambience and service top notch. Food not so great as per my taste buds.. probably an Irish version of Italian than authentic italian. A bit over priced would say.
Very friendly, professional and experienced wait staff. Timing of the food was just right. Wine selection was excellent and no better location to be found in Galway!
Dîner romantique dans un cadre magnifique et gustativement parfait pour un prix plus que raisonnable. Merci 💓
Lovely atmosphere, and very good value dishes, many thanks for a lovely evening!
