This is a very authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Galway. Although it's a tiny restaurant it packs a lot if atmosphere and great food. The menu is small, three starters and three mains with a vegetarian option. The food is very authentic and nearly as good as being in a restaurant in Tuscany. Good wine list but it's a little pricey. Very friendly staff who always go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Highly recommended.

Good location and nice food. But a bit pricey for what we got. And not particularly Italian either. It's small but then that's part of the charm.

I went to Il Vicolo on a Saturday night with my husband and lucky for us we had booked the day before, as it is really tiny and packed with customers.
We loved everything about it, the food (authentic Italian), the wine, the atmosphere and the service from the very friendly staff.
We were very impressed that they served Spritz and that everything on the food and wine list was "real" Italian.
We would definitely go back and we recommend it to anybody.

'Mmm...' that the sound you'll make when you taste the delights that il Vicolo offers up to you on a plate. This is my new favorite restaurant in Galway. You can always tell the mark of good Italian restaurant by their choice of beer and when I see Mr. Moretti tipping his hat at me from the label, I'm excited, because I know this is going to be good. Another equally delicious aperitif is the refreshment that is a Campari and Grapefruit cocktail and for afters their proper Italian Espresso is awesome. The Polenta with little flecks of delicious Fennel Seeds and the Seafood Linguini is always right on the money with a lovely selection of perfectly cooked fish and homemade pasta. I totally appreciate the technical skill, creativity and most importantly love that the Chefs clearly put into their food and applaud the free reign approach they take to bringing modern, Italian food to the West Coast of Ireland. Thank you.

There was a group of 6 of us in for dinner. Our food came out efficiently, the staff were helpful and attentive, but not overwhelming, and the food was delicious. I really enjoyed the quaintness of the place. It is quite small, which makes it a perfect place for intimate dinner out for a group, couple, or individual. The wine selection is amazing, and the menu changes daily with vegetarian options. Fresh food. Great wine. Good service.
