Amazing selection of Cicchetti with a wide variety from seafood, crostini and charcuterie. In warmer weather, it would make a lovely outdoor dining /drink experience with the view of the Grand Canal.

What an amazing find in the middle of a touristy section of Venice near Rialto bridge. Our family of four dined here for Christmas dinner at the recommendation of our concierge. We were specifically looking for a place with local Venetian food, and not too touristy. Bancogiro is it! There were many locals enjoying drinks and conversation outside the bar... More

The restaurant upstairs could be described as cozy or cramped. One needs to mind one's head walking up and then down a very steep staircase. The ceiling in the upstairs dining room is very low and, while there are interesting architectural elements to the dining space, it is not for a claustrophobic. I had a starter of bacala montecato, which... More

Beautifully presented food, so tasty, and a wide range of dishes. No more expensive than other places in Venice. Comparatively good value wine (which was a very high standard). Beautiful surroundings overlooking the water; lovely décor and great service. One of our favourite moments of our stay in Venice.

Easy to find, great location and service, excellent food and wine! Our group had a tender tuna course, another the lightly breaded sea bass, and yet another the most tender serving of duck! The wait staff are friendly, attentive and quite helpful, they treat you as if they own the place. Definitely recommend!

I can't speak for the food, but we sat outside on Bancogiro's lovely patio, had drinks and watched the gondolas go by. I really liked the feel of this cozy little wine bar. It was a chilly evening in late October and they supplied us with blankets - bonus! The staff was really nice and attentive and the restaurant looked... More

Would highly recommend Osteria Bancogiro, as was suggested to us by the concierge at Bauer Hotel, Tripadvisor and friends from home. It offers a cosy atmospheric restaurant upstairs, seating outside facing the Grand Canal and a ground level bar. Due to the weather, my partner and I were sat upstairs for dinner. I ordered "baked (whole) sea bass tender breaded... More
