After a bit of research found IL Vicolo and what a treat. Slightly of the main drag but a hidden gem. Lovely atmosphere and staff excellent. Food was lovely and not overly expensive. If you like Italian food a must on your trip to Galway.

We came upon this pleasant restaurant 'by accident' and were very pleased to have done so. Good food and wine at sensible prices and friendly service. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the river. Recommended!

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!
