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

Excellent food, very close to Rialto, and in a lovely ancient building. Visiting in November, we dined inside, but this would also be a lovely location to dine alfresco next to the canal in warmer weather. The seafood platter was especially good, and so was the duck breast. Thoroughly recommended!

Only once we had sat down did they tell us all the pasta dishes were un available!! Meat dishes took an age to come and were very poor in quality ... perhaps it is to close to the main drag to need to bother. Venice has much more to offer than this place.

One of the best little restaurants we found in Venice. The servive was great, the food extraordinary and the wine menu fantastic. It's definitely not the typical tourist place although situated at the Canal Grande close to Rialto bridge.

I came accross this place thru a magazine article (Travel & Leisure) . I am glad we made reservations. This place has prime location for people watching along the Grand Canal as promised. Nice atmosphere eating dinner alfresco under the monlight. The food is delicious as I expected. Get the sampler cichetti as appetizer. Your taste buds will be delighted.... More

One of my favorite quieter corners of venice. Sitting by the canal, eating with white linen and proper wine glasses, while young people sit on the dockside eating a sandwich and drinking wine from the local market. What could be more real!

Most of the restaurants on the Grand Canal are very touristy and the food typically average. Bancogiro which is across the Rialto Bridge and a bit off the beaten path was delightful. We ate outside and had a wonderful meal with a fantastic view.

Our overall experience was good. We had a reservation, we arrived really early and decided to have a drink out front before checking in. The bartender was the only downside to this restaurant. He was rude and not helpful. Lets move on, we were seated for dinner out back on the Grand Canal. Our server was pleasant compared to the... More
