Very nice meal, great ambiance, good wine list

We had a great meal here around sundown, when its great to take advantage of abundant outdoor seating and watch the canal. The restaurant is one of three in the same building, and the people in and around these restaurants help the ambiance. We liked the clear, regionally-sorted wine list. The... read more

This is my second report regarding Bancogiro and sadly, things did not go as well as the first. We sat at one of the wonderful outside tables, with its views of the historic palazzo’s across the Grand Canal. The sun shone and we looked forward to another delicious lunch. It started so very well, with a mixed cheese plate and... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and both the food and service were really very good. The location next to the Grand Canal is obviously a bonus. A good cheese selection and Tuna as a main course was cooked excellently. Recommended

This restaurant is far better than my Italian. To tell the truth, I am often disappointed with the food in Italian restaurants. We're a bit spoiled in Australia (especially Sydney and Melbourne) with utterly outstanding Italian restaurants so when you go to Italy you expect something pretty special - but time and again I think: Meh... There are a few... More

We celebrated my daughter's birthday with a group of 6. We reserved the table the day before to make sure we had a spot in their small, but charming 2nd floor dining area with view of the canal (only a couple tables by the windows). Wine selection is extensive, service was fine and the food was excellent. Prices are expensive,... More

Good atmosphere at the grand canal, in an old warehouse. Close to Rialtobridge. Need to book a table in advance. The beef tartar was served with endive and sundries tomato cream. Interesting rather than revolutionary. The meet were tender and seasoned with just right amount of mustard. Really good. For mains we had the salmon and tuna. Both cooked to... More

Location was very beautiful, the place is not very big, terrace overlooking the canal. We had a little hard time to find it. Good Italian food with a nice wine list . Price a bit high but it was worth it. We really enjoyed the experience. It is a must.

We had lunch here several times during our trip and enjoyed it each time. The sidewalk café sits along the Grand Canal and watching the activity adds to the lunchtime pleasure. The wait staff was always attentive and the food delicious. We cant wait to return.

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

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.
