Just off the beaten track in Galway. Stumbled on this delightful Italian restaurant. A real Italian restaurant with full compliment of Italian chefs and waiters. Food was delicious. Service first class. Delightful staff and lovely internal design.

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!
