Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have had many takeaways over lockdown (all amazing - chicken Milanese is my favourite hands down! ) and we were so excited to see they had opened up their outside seating area we had to get our table booked! We arrived early evening & had both pizza & pasta with a few sides and of-course a wine or two, Perfect! They have some lovely tree’s outside for decoration & help with social distancing which makes you feel like you are on holiday (or was i just wishfully thinking of a beach somewhere) Great system & service to tackle social distancing & food was amazing. Can’t wait to come back & dine in the restaurant too. Thanks guys, keep up the good work 👍

I’d like to thank all the staff involved I delivering a very tasty and enjoyable to us this evening. We were celebrating a birthday event and due to lockdown we were unable to meet up with our the family. I ordered meals to be delivered to two different addresses at the same time so we could all eat and get together via a FaceTime call. The staff at Banco were most helpful from booking through to the delivery of an excellent and tasty meal. I’m looking forward to time when we can actual go to the restaurant but until then Banco@Home offers a great service.

This place has been such a god send during lockdown. Have had a few meals delivered but most recently I had Chicken Milanese and my husband had the Sunday Roast. It was really delicious and great value for money. The staff are so friendly and welcoming (even whilst social distancing) Highly recommend for a high quality takeaway. I have and usually do dine in at Banco which is equally as amazing and look forward to coming back again soon!

An awful experience at Banco. Mistake made with reservation, not very accommodating or apologetic. Table booked for 8.30 pm and we eventually ate sub-standard food at 10pm. Toilets out of service with only 1 toilet available for every customer in the restaurant. Queue quickly formed, no social distancing and it wasn’t cleaned once during our visit. No track or trace details taken and no extra measures in place. Strongly advise supporting another local business if you fancy a night out.

We visited as a family at the end of August with the Eat out to help out scheme but were really impressed by the food and service. They actually ran out of some puddings and chocolate sauce but more than compensated by taking all 5 deserts off our bill! Quality of pizza, veal and ragu was excellent. Will be back.

At last Banco has opened its doors for take away and not long before we can go back and dine inside. We had a fantastic pizza from here; spicy, thin base and tasty. We can wait for it to re-open for real, even with appropriate social distancing this will be a restaurant we return not long after they get the go-ahead.

Dined here again on Saturday night and oh my... What an experience! The atmosphere was lovely, the waiters were unbelievably attentive and the star of the show has to be the food! We all ate different items off the menu and couldn't believe the quality and special details that went into each dish, I extremely enjoyed my "special" - the fish dish! Well worth it and I can't wait to try more of your one off dishes.. Infact probably the rest of the menu! Well done Banco.. It was a night we won't forget, this restaurant has definitely gone from "good to great" in my opinion

I’d heard the food here was good but it certainly surpassed my high expectations. Six of us dined as a family and each of us had superb food. My own Ragu (a house speciality) was excellent, with a generous portion of the most succulent beef. We had a wide variety of dishes from the menu, all of which could be described in the same glowing terms. We were looked after by lovely people who were very attentive without being in any way intrusive.

Food was great absolutely no issue with that . Poor service started when when myself and 3 family members were finished our mains and wanted to order dessert and a last round of drinks we were told we had 2 hrs before we had to vacate the table which was absolutely no issue but to be told we won't be served dessert as place was busy and they wanted to table back after 1 h 15 min was disgusting. We informed staff of this to be told the manager wants the table back . We requested to speak to the manager who appeared to deliberately avoid speaking to us until we were leaving and had tracked them down with the owner too to tell them of our disgust at there poor service to be met with a very rude and disrespectful couldent care less attitude . My family walked away feeling like we had done something wrong . Absolutely shocking service owner definitely needs a rethink of his manager . Absolutely no need for the disgusting cant care less attitude. Poor Poor Poor won't be back

First time trying this place and was left very disappointed. Was welcomed by a un-interested waiter, who failed to give us the correct menu. Had to ask what their specials were however watched other diners being given menus and informed of specials. Food was okay, neatly presented and warm. Although when it came to dessert, the panacotta was order but not eaten as there was several hairs all over the top. When informing the waiter at first he did not believe us and he took it away checked came back and said that we were right. Experience has put us off and will not be going again.

We really enjoy the food from Banco, we have eaten take away food from them many times throughout lockdown. We visited to eat in and the food was still fantastic, however the service was very slow. The staff were working very hard, but management had obviously not staffed up to provide a takeaway offering beside the restaurant offering. After 1 hour 20 mins we had had one drink and some bread. I think they need to rethink!

I was delighted to be gifted a voucher for Banco as I knew they did takeaways. The voucher front fails to say that it's only for dining in and could not be used for takeaway food. When I phoned to place a takeaway order I was told that the voucher could only be used for sit-in dining. They also said that they verbally tell the person buying the gift voucher that this is the case. (Seriously ... how can a verbally letting the giver of a gift for someone else constitutes as the terms and conditions for the receiver of the gift?) Do they really think that a voucher without the T&C saying that it's only for dining in use can be a positive experience? If you think a voucher will be a great gift - regardless of the food - The answer for Banco will be no as it could be money wasted.

Amazing food and friendly staff. Wanted to support a local business by staying local for first meal out after lockdown. Unfortunately the waiter serving us, and what looked like half the area of the restaurant, was not wearing a mask so made the experience uncomfortable and let the restaurant down. He had a mask on, but sitting on his chin completely under his mouth and nose. What’s the point?? As the waiting staff are the only people coming near you, they should absolutely have a mask of some type on. Won’t be back while current guidance in place.

We were all enjoying our night in here again, food great and waiters and waitresses all nice as ever. Stunned By Disgusting comments from the loud cooks about The Queen, can’t believe when the news came out they were loudly laughing and joking, we could all here the young cook, obviously very very uneducated people, if your not in favour of the royals that’s your choice but the comments we could all hear were revolting, the older manager and other cooks were horrible,maybe they thought they couldn’t be heard, they should be embarrassed if they can mentally understand that emotion, when the younger ones grow up they will be embarrassed and the older guy should have known better maybe he can’t, was always moaning aswell, very loud and clearly a prat! people are diverse and different but in such a moment the staff should have known better, we got our phone out to record it was so bad - disgusting comments from idiots who clearly don’t know better. We have cancelled our birthday meal in November will encourage others to do same. We didnt stay for deserts and won’t be back. Idiots Grow up or shut up!

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. After discussions with the kitchen team we can confirm that absolutely nothing untoward was said regarding the sad passing of the queen. We are proud to say that we are a multicultural employer who have different team members from many different walks of life & nationalities. Unfortunately due to the large fans in the kitchen, our chefs do have to speak a little louder in order to communicate with each other and possibly within the comradery of the our team things were taken out of context. We would encourage you to let us know your recording so we can deal with the matter & staff members accordingly. If you could contact us at the restaurant on 0141 620 0033 or via email on eat@bancoglasgow.com

This was the fourth visit this year for our party and we were very disappointed. We know prices increase when the word "Christmas" is put before the words "Market Menu" but we had hoped that for the extra £12 we would have a special meal. Our starters were okay (parfait for two and baked camembert for one) but the main courses were a big let down. Two of us had the chicken stroganoff which left an unpleasant after taste. It was very salty and tasted charred. The catch of the day came with a prawn sauce and this too was very salty. We mentioned our disappointment to the staff who said they would pass our comments on to the chef but we did not get very much in the way of feedback. Sadly I think it is time for us to find a new venue for our lunches.
