A Great Place to Sip Cocktails and Enjoy A Bit of Venice

Osteria Bancogiro was very close to our hotel (Locanda Poste Vecie) so we sat down and had some food and cocktails before heading back. The tables outside sit on a small square and have a water front view. It was quiet at mid day (around 5pm) and we had good service. You don't get a sweeping... read more

This was a really nice place to have a meal just a few steps from the Rialto bridge. We ate in the upstairs dining room which was a quiet respite from the crowds outside. The food was very good. The dishes were based on classic Venetian seafood dishes but with twists and modern updates. Overall, very enjoyable and good value... More

During a class trip in June 2015 to Venice, my colleague and I had lunch at the Osteria Bancogiro near the Rialto Bridge - and enjoyed it! We ordered two simple pasta dishes and got extremely tasteful compositions at affordable prices and have been served very well! For our short break in the - at the time very heated -... More

This is a great place to enjoy drinks, food and people watching while sitting along the Grand Canal. Though the menu is varied, seafood is the specialty here. I started with the baby octopus, an item on many menu's in Venice. It was perfectly tender and a nice light start to the meal. I had sea bass for my entrée... More

After a glowing article in Travel and Leisure magazine, that touted both food and view at this restaurant, I excitedly made a reservation. The restaurant is located just across the Rialto and has seating looking at the canal. Unfortunately, people buy drinks and sit on the docks abutting the restaurant so that you don't have a great view even when... More

We've eaten here at least half a dozen times on various trips to Venice. Great location overlooking the Grand Canal & Gondola/Vaporetto station. This time though the weather wasn't kind but hey! no problem - the staff quietly & quickly moved all the al fresco diners inside to the indoor restaurant (upstairs). I didn't know they had tables up there.... More

We dropped by the bar at the back of the restaurant on the square behind and enjoyed a few prosecco's standing under the arches. Nice atmosphere and affordable drinks.

Beware. This place had the worst customers service. We waited over 30 to 45 minutes for our seats due to we wanted to sit outside to see all the walking attractions. As we waited I guess it's turns into dinner only time. Which they never said we had to orders a dinner to orders drinks and appetizers. I told them... More

First of all you wait exactly the time we tell you when you ask for a table without any riservation. We start always with the restaurant service at seven o clock and all the tables are set for this at the same time so is very easy to understand it. We advise always before accept a reservation that we do... More

Get the assortment of fish appetizers. This is a lovely restaurant with very good food and excellent service. We had pasta and lamb chops. Everything was delicious!

For a great evening in the warm weather: Table #1 outside right on the canal. Few better sites/sights in Venice. Fresh fish of course; really tasty, imaginative appetizers. Good wine by the glass and bottle. Well-priced. Reserve a table and sit. A memorable evening for both the food and the view.

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.
