Came here with a group of 16. Service was great and so was the food. I had lobster soup (VERY good!), panko crusted fish and a great dessert that I think was in between a vainilla custard & pudding. Had their house pinot noir (french) and was quite tasty and excellent pair with dinner. I can't comment on the price... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. The cuisine is Northern Italian. There are many choices of fish, meat, pasta and veggie, with a good wine list. This is placed in an old bank, with beautiful woodwork, and elegant lighting. A wonderful dining experience.

Il banko is really special. Wall papers 100 hundred years old made from leather. Craftwork is really beautiful. Food is tasty. My wife and me took dinner menu. There was mozarella only for one starter and kitchen made other one tomate plate from warmed goat cheese. That was good invention. Main dish was tasty. Desert was too sweet for our... More

This restaurant is located in a nice Art Nouveau house that used to be a bank. The interior has been nicely restored. The Cesar salad I had was quite tasty among all the Cesar salads I have had. It was nicely accompanied with beer from a local brewery. The staff were friendly.

Went for dinner as a local recommended it. Nice location. Right in a corner nearby the city square. Classic burgundy wood interiors which gives it a very refined and professional look. Had a platter for appetizer that included prosciutto, olives, spread, etc. Quite good and enough for two to share. I had risotto with salmon (pictured) which was pretty tasty.... More

I had duck and I loved it. This was my favorite meal during my one week stay in Vaasa. They had good wine too and the service was excellent. The deco was a bit burgundian. The waiters spoke English fluently. I hope to come back again.

Il Banco rarely lets you down. The lunch buffé is just suberb. Great salades, usually with two meat options, fresh baguette and some for of carbs (rice, potatoes etc). Highly recommend having lunch here.

This was business dinner (and I'm glad I didn't have to pay for the bill) and the food was amazing! In a generously Italian style, the menu feature different types of risotto in a number of variants. The portions were stylish (and beautiful to look at) but also large and filling. Some background music in a volume that doesn't prevent... More

The place is built in a former bank from the early 20th century with preserved interior detail. The lunch is tasty with good salad and a couple of warm dishes.
