Good location, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, normal prices. This little wine bar is a pleasant place to spend an hour next to the main canal.

Visited the Grand Canal and popped in here for lunch. Service was polite, friendly and reasonably quick. We had coffee and sandwiches which cost 33 euros for the 4 of us. Nice to sit near the canal and people watch whilst we ate the tasty food

Popped in for a few drinks before working out our dinner plans in this fun area of town. Very friendly service (even with our terrible Italian!) and the cocktails were fantastic. I'm pregnant so was choosing from their non alcoholic selection, but each one really unique, well balanced and fun. Husband was very happy with his choices too! Lovely little... More

Nice place by the channel in the Navigli area. Food (mainly sandwiches) and beer ok. Nothing special though! Just ordinary... The service instead was pretty good, thanks to the waitress that served our table. Saúde!

Arrived early for our 19:00 dinner reservation and had an hour to kill. Began to look for a place to have a nice spritz and noticed this place had a lot of people out front drinking beer and wine. Decided to join and was lucky to grab two tables. The place filled up quickly and I could see why--soon after... More

We had the best aperitif experience at Banco. The staff were amazing, the cocktails made to perfection, and bar snacks perfect and generous. Highly recommend this bar along the canals.

I've never seen cocktails made with so much genuine love and attention. Happy hour 6 -9pm, great apero and fantastic atmosphere. We're back for the second night in a row. I couldn't decide what to drink i wanted last night and after discussing what I'd normally order, I've now discovered my favourite cocktail. Perfect evening!

We've come across this bar on our search for a laid back place near the canal. It's quite small, but friendly, with helpful staff. We've only had a few glasses of wine (at reasonable price) and they came with four different snacks. Next time in Milan, I will sure be returning to this bar.

The cocktails are really good and different from the usuals. we only paid 12€ for tow drinks. It is served with a plate of food (olives, chorizo, bread with tomato and cheese, potatoes chips...).

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
