Decent and affordable

Small and cosy restaurant with for Venetian standards normal prices. As a starter we had the San Daniele ham which was of an excellent quality. The fillet of sea bass was good and very fresh. Excellent tiramisu with a crunch in it. Nice place, decent food at normal prices

It was difficult to tell if the patrons who cut in front of of me or the bar staff were more rude. Anyways--prepare for some discrimination. Don't order cappuccino if you don't want to burn your tongue. Mine was boiling hot. Cappuccino in Italy is made at prrf ct drinking temperature -- just as the milk is supposed to be... More

OK, it's getting dark in Venice. All tourist groups are going back to their hotels or the next cheap pizzeria. You are lucky to have a reservation (MUST) at the Osteria Bancogiro. It is just 50 meters away from the Rialto bridge, hidden in a small side street. Start outside and downstairs with a glass of wine and some finger... More

We had seen some good reviews about this restaurant and decided to try it for ourselves on our visit to Venice. Booking a table was easy and we returned the same evening at the specified time. They host led us upstairs to the vaulted second floor dining room. Very cozy layout and nice lightning. The tables are spread out in... More

The cicheti here are amazing! Black polenta topped with curried squid, perfectly smoked salmon, whipped cod, a combo of eggplant, ricotta and anchovy--all were so fresh and delicious. They also make a perfect spritz and feature a nice selection of local wines by the glass-- we tried a sauvignon blanc and a soave. The place has a nice, relaxed vibe,... More

So many Italian restaurants just churn out a long list of standard fare they have been making for generations. This place does a few dishes cooked with passion and imagination. An excellent experience at a very reasonable price. The Americans describing it as expensive must be thinking of McD's not real restaurants where they cook real food.

We had a luvly meal in the upstairs restaurant. The restaurant has an vaulted ceiling and a cosy atmosphere. It is just by the fish market and the Rialto bridge. The food was really good - good selection of fish dishes. Somewhere I would go back to.

Loved loved LOVED the cichetti here! Excellent staff, fresh and very innovative food (black polenta with curried seafood!), and good drinks as well. Definitely worth the very affordable price. All the market locals came in to join us; a wonderful scene!
