Immersed in the well-heeled bustle of Duke of York Square, POLPO Chelsea serves rustic Venetian cuisine. Offsetting the cosy dining room with its bare brickwork and naked lightbulbs, there is an expansive parasol-covered al fresco area.

Reminiscent of Venice’s charming backstreet restaurants, POLPO specialises in Italian small plates and signature spritzers. Hand-rolled meatballs, freshly-stretched pizzettes and colourful salads head up the POLPO menu, and favourite creations include cuttlefish & squid ink risotto with gremolata, or pork jelly with apricot and sage. For dessert, culinary innovations include Campari panna cotta, or ricotta doughnuts with cinnamon sugar.

POLPO in Chelsea also serves an artisan brunch menu, with breakfast cocktails, pastries and fresh juices served alongside dishes like nutritious scafata with poached eggs, and sourdough with wild garlic, mushrooms and ricotta. Accompanying a selective wine list is a list of classic POLPO cocktails.

Bringing the charm of Venice to London, POLPO restaurant is a 3-minute walk from Sloane Square Tube Station.

    The food was lovely and having eaten in the beak st restaurant was one of the reasons we booked. However the service was extremely slow improving only when we mentioned we had been waiting 45 minutes for our drinks and the waiters switched. Shame as would be unlikely to return

    We requested a table where we could have placed the pram however when we got there we were told that could leave the pram in a special space and the baby had to stay with us (2 months old). It was not very accommodating especially there were tables with more space than the one we had. The food was ok even though pasta on the side of overcopked and meatballs rubbery...

    Very good food but we felt the staff were overstretched as service was slow and we had to ask three times for some drinks. It was very busy so I think they were just under staffed. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.
