Il Folletto, the much loved Italian restaurant on Quay Street, has undergone a revamp of both interiors and menus. A contemporary rebrand and relaxed but modern approach to the interiors has given a renewed energy to the popular restaurant.
In many tourist towns both home and away, you will notice that there always seems to be a street full of tacky souvenir shops, a smattering of dull cafes, and some terrible tourist-trap restaurants. Not so in Galway. We are lucky enough to have Quay Street, the buzzing heart of Galway’s Latin Quarter. It has medieval architecture, a pedestrian street for browsing the many quirky little shops full of wooden toys, vintage clothes, and pottery alongside the quality woollens and Celtic jewellery. The atmosphere in the pubs is fun and friendly, with the sound of music from trad to rock spilling onto the street. There are almost always some buskers and performers, a festival or parade, and this is the best place in Galway city on a sunny evening, when the outdoor seating is packed with tourists and locals engaged in 'people watching' and enjoying all the sights and sounds of the streets of Galway.
New Italian restaurant Il Folletto on Quay Street really is little Italy in the heart of Galway. As you walk in the door straight away you are transported to a warm summer’s evening in southern Italy. The traditional rustic appearance and precise attention to detail really is something to behold. Nothing has been left to chance in creating a warm inviting homely Italian welcome. From freshly imported Italian cured meats, cheese, and pastas to full bodied or lightly fruity Italian wines from the extensive wine menu, everything is the real deal. Even the staff are Italian!
