We went to Il Vicolo on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant is in a lovely setting and is decorated well. There is a great wine list and the cheese & meat board was good (quantity and quality). The issue was that our mains...More

Last night of our visit to Galway for the races for five of us. We had booked the meal here sceptical about whether an Italian was a good idea but it proved a great choice for our celebration. It is in a really old warehouse-type...More

Overall it was only a 'fair" experience. We were greeted rudely and accused of being an hour late - we weren't - they mixed up our booking - no apology, only a mumbled "oh, my mistake" It was not a great first impression! Other staff...More

Nice place with the terrasse along the river. Very efficient staff, great food . The carbonara pasta were delicious. One regret : the music way too loud , we prefer the sound of the river !!!

Located in the historic Bridge Mills building, Il Vicolo is Galway's premiere destination for modern Italian dining. Come in and see the centuries old mill as you nibble on Beef Carpaccio or one of our homemade pastas. Or perhaps sit on Galway's only riverside terrace and watch the Corrib flow into the sea, all while sipping on a bottle from the city's largest selection of Italian Wines. See you soon!
