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.
Food, service and atmosphere is excellent!
Lovely evening with friends. Great, friendly and knowledgeable service and the food was amazing. Highly recommend.
Went here for Brunch/Lunch last Sunday week. Food was really excellent. They only had 1 egg option which is what everyone at the table went for and it was delicious. I will be back for dinner at some point.
The food was simply divine, Lovely atmosphere, a hidden gem in Galway. thank you!
Lovely meal celebrating our engagement Thank you!!
Delicious food and tasty wine in a lovely relaxing candlelit restaurant with great friendly staff, we will defiantly be back! Keep up the amazing work :)
Il Vicolo is absolutely beautiful inside & out - with amazing views of the river, the gorgeous watermill inside & the beautiful decor. The food is out of this world & the menu really reasonably priced for the quality. The wine selection is also amazing. Our guests were a huge huge group but food was served quickly & smoothly. Everyone loved it. We cannot wait to come back next time we're in Galway. Strongly recommend.
Friendly staff. Gorgeous setting in the mill. Pity not more on menu.
Nice meal , slightly slow service but waitress apologiesed so fine , have to say thought 9-50 for a dessert is too much ! , why are desserts so dear , it was only a pear tart with ice cream
Great service and excellent wine

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!
