Urban in Salthill is actually a very modern take on an Italian restaurant. Contemporary furniture and clever use of light and colour make this look like a cocktail bar, but it serves truly authentic and delicious Italian fare. My three adult children and I went for an early dinner before New Year's eve and they picked 'the new place' in Salthill, beside the ever popular Da Roberta's, little knowing that they share their kitchen and bathrooms, but have a totally different and modern menu. Yes they still serve excellent pizza and pasta dishes, but they also do the most interesting 'Burger' in Galway. Well worth trying here, and including wine and a dessert or two, still worked out at less that €18 per person, and we were all full and happy.

This is one of the first restaurant in Galway that I feel very European atmosphere, from menu to the waiters! Very stylish place and good quality too!

I visited here with my partner recently. While Urban has the same kitchen as Da Roberta it now has a separate menu. When we arrived we got a glass of sparkling wine on the house. The food was simple and well presented. Bruschetta followed by an excellent penne pasta with tomato and garlic with chicken ..simple but perfect .. That was my choice. The house wine was excellent as was the tiramisu .. The service was superb .. There is somewhere here a good manager finding his/her style .. Keep at it guys ..its improving ..

Urban is a restaurant which delivers what it promises- excellently prepared and presented food and great value too. Urban decor is not traditional rural trattoria, but this is Salthill, not a leafy suburb and it works and has a great atmosphere. The portions are large and delicious, the wine list good and the staff, led by the ever enthusiastic Dario, are amongst the best I have encountered. On an extremely busy night they were patient, efficient and very professional. I cannot speak highly enough of them. If you are in Salthill Urban is highly recommended.
