Lovely spot

We went to Bacogiro to celebrate our daughter's birthday when we were in Venice a few weeks ago. It had been recommended by the folks at Ca' Angeli.

Right on the canal with fair pricing. We split a huge seafood antipasta, added a bottle of wine and spent a couple hours watching the world go by. It was hot buy many tables are in the shade. Food is good, but given their pricing and the setting, it earns a 5 star rating from us.

This restaurant was recommended to us, and after arriving in Venice in the mid-afternoon, it was our first stop. The setting is great, with a view of the Grand Canal, near Rialto. The food was good, nothing special, and we liked the cicchetti better than the entrees. The service was very slow, however, and we had trouble getting our check... More

We were in a family trip and decided to go for lunch. We wanted a light lunch with salad, the traditional fish antipasti and a few other small plates. Although the food seemed good, they put up a fight and wouldn't let us sit down even though two people in our group where pregnant. We saw other groups ordering the... More

We decided to celebrate our wedding in Venice with a meal for 13 guests at Bancogiro. We are from the UK and had eaten here on a reconnaissance trip in February last year. We chose the menu, booked the table, and made all arrangements via email and it was so easy thanks to Gianluca!. We sat outside and though we... More

We phoned earlier in the day to make a booking, so we had a table waiting for us outside when we arrived (we made the booking in English). We had starters, mine a selection of fish cooked in different ways, and it's probably the best meal I've ever eaten. Absolutely delicious. Our other dishes were just as good. For dessert... More

We had a great meal here around sundown, when its great to take advantage of abundant outdoor seating and watch the canal. The restaurant is one of three in the same building, and the people in and around these restaurants help the ambiance. We liked the clear, regionally-sorted wine list. The menu, like many in the area, feature regional seafood... More

This is my second report regarding Bancogiro and sadly, things did not go as well as the first. We sat at one of the wonderful outside tables, with its views of the historic palazzo’s across the Grand Canal. The sun shone and we looked forward to another delicious lunch. It started so very well, with a mixed cheese plate and... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and both the food and service were really very good. The location next to the Grand Canal is obviously a bonus. A good cheese selection and Tuna as a main course was cooked excellently. Recommended

This restaurant is far better than my Italian. To tell the truth, I am often disappointed with the food in Italian restaurants. We're a bit spoiled in Australia (especially Sydney and Melbourne) with utterly outstanding Italian restaurants so when you go to Italy you expect something pretty special - but time and again I think: Meh... There are a few... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
