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!
