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.
Amazing food and service have zero complaints will definitely be back!!
I brought my mom here during her visit because one of my friends had been here and told me how lovely of an experience it was. All of my expectations were fulfilled and we had a great time thanks to the amazing staff both front and back of the house. Thank you for making one of the memories of my moms visit so wonderful.
Food and service were really good. There was a live band the evening we went, they were so good and it really added to the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and plan on returning next time we are in Galway.

Really lovely food and atmosphere
Lovely venue, had a great time!
Everyone was seriously amazing. The food was incredible and the wine that our server suggested was great. From start to finish everything was perfect. Couldn’t ask for a better night or better atmosphere. I’m sorry I forget names easily but the girl with the killer bangs and the girl with great curls and glasses literally went above and beyond. They were incredible and I’ve been recommending I’ll Vicolo to everyone we meet because of them. 13/10 would recommend.
Staff are so friendly and food is delicious. Second time here and never fails to impress. Will be back every time I visit Galway
I would say this is a lovely place for drinks, beautiful setting. However the food left us disappointed. I ordered the Risotto and my partner ordered the spaghetti. Neither of us enjoyed it. The spaghetti was too hard and not enough meat. Sauce didn't have much flavour. The risotto was also bland and the mushrooms were very hard. I have loved risotto in many other places. But the staff were lovely and the setting was beautiful. I would come back here again for drinks not food.
Delicious food and great suggestions for accompanying wine. Will definitely return again soon.
Lovely food and experience
We had the most amazing experience at Il Vicolo! Great service (our waitress was phenomenal!), food, wine, and ambiance. First place we'll go for food next time we are in Galway.
Food was incredible
Excellent service great atmosphere,unfortunately let down by rather bland starters and mains. Dessert was delicious though.
We had the most wonderful evening! The service was fantastic and the food was superb! The best part of the whole experience was the atmosphere of the restaurant itself. It exceeded our expectations for a romantic birthday dinner. Thank you!
Lovely meal, friendly staff.
I reccomend this place to everyone who comes to Galway
