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 was fantastic, Covid-19 guidelines were followed fully, and we were pleasantly surprised to catch the end of some jazz being performed. Felt looked after by the staff.

Fab meal as usual. Had to ask for some spuds with my venison, if I'd known when ordering that veg would be minimal I wouldve ordered a side. Having said that,venison was gorgeous, cooked perfectly and enjoyed a extremely tasty red with it. Was busy so kitchen had a bit of a backlog but luckily our mains came fairly swiftly. I always love coming to il vicolo, great atmosphere, relaxed vibe and attentive and knowledgeable staff. Always a pleasure and cant wait for them to be open again in 2021

Service was extremely good. The waitress was exceptional- especially regarding taking care with one of our party who had an allergy. Menu was limited for non meat eaters. The room was very cold but perhaps that was related to extra ventilation. Music with a classical Italian theme or a Christmas theme would have hugely helped the atmosphere which was quite dull. Food overall was excellent and delicious.

Wonderful ambience and food.Points taken off for very lax covid procedures. Front of house, bar staff and a chef all maskless. Disappointing.

From start to finish, my dining experience at Il Vicolo was second to none. They have succeeded in creating a relaxed and romantic ambiance. The service was impeccable and without fault. The food was exceptional - especially the mushroom polenta starter. Not to forget the refreshing and aromatic cocktails! I would highly recommend a meal here to anyone I know. I will without doubt be returning in the near future. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We felt very safe and enjoyed the welcome we received from your staff. One tiny note. I felt the gnocchi had too much oil and were soggy. We will be back as we really enjoyed the night.
