We stopped here for a few drinks and Crostinis. They were lovely but the service was positively awful, the waitress was so moody, slamming down glasses and plates and was very short with us. I would maybe recommend trying somewhere else along the little strip, as it is a lovely setting.

This was a recommendation from the tourist office! Nice location very close to the Rialto bridge. However from the start the service was lousy. The waiter made us feel like idiot tourists with no sense of hospitality. Some of the food was ok and the veggies were bad. Very small portions but clearly overpriced due to the location. The drinking... More

My husband thoroughly enjoyed a few of the antipasti items on the menu but by and large the menu was small, the portions were small and while the appearance was "pretty", I found the tastes to be lacking. Might be a better choice for a date night but for a family with four kids, this was not the right restaurant... More

We had a shared lunch of five or six pieces of Cichetti while standing outside at the small counter. Everything was really tasty, but the salted cod was heavenly. I still think about it sometimes! The bartender was friendly and although he spoke as little English as I spoke Italian we managed to figure out what everything was, how much... More

Visited this restaurant 29.6.14 as the location and outer appearance looked nice. Moved inside after a drink outside. The menu looked promising but the food we ordered was totally tasteless. My shrimp risotto had 3 small tails in it, and looked like porridge. Nothing to decorate or no try in getting it to look good.Asked for garlic trying to spice... More

Said to be the most romantic place at sunset, still a nice stopover any other time of the day. It occupies the historic building of Banco Giro, a former public bank of the Republic of Venice, with an open terrace at the foot of Rialto Bridge. Order your spritz and soak up the atmosphere enjoying the view of the Grand... More

We ate here in early June and perhaps the menu has changed but here's our review. I had reservations in advance so we had a lovely outside patio table with a nice view. Our waiter was efficient and we loved our wine choice and had two bottles. I didn't love the barley risotto with vegetables but that was the only... More

We were there the first night of a new menu and had a wonderful discussion with the Chief of the restaurant. He elicited our opinion and we gave it. The raw fish carpaccio was terrific with a cup of passion fruit mouse, which worked. The fish main courses were all excellent with a twist. The oddest dish was a pasta... More

We visited Bancogiro in the evening and even though we did not have a reservation, the friendly maitre d' offered us a prime outside table with clear views of the canal, boats and gondolas. My seafood entree (Bancogiro style) was exquisite; my wife ordered scallops in filo with a licorice sauce that was unusual but not unenjoyable. The main of... More
