From acclaimed restaurateur Russell Norman, POLPO Covent Garden serves up signature Venetian small plates, alongside prosecco, spritz and wine from the bar. Rustic stone walls and barside seating make for a laidback but elegant setting for Italian-style drinking and dining.
Reminiscent of Venice’s charming backstreet restaurants, POLPO London 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 Covent Garden 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.
Find POLPO tucked away behind the Strand, a short walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

Customer reviews for POLPO Covent Garden
((((( 5 January 2017 by Sarah Frost from London
Wonderful lunch with a friend pre-theatre. Great friendly service & amazing food. My second visit to Polpo, can't wait to go again. All dishes were lovely but I highly recommend the arancini cicchetti which were so tasty we ordered more! Great sharing plates, every one of ours went back empty. A sure sign of good food!

I would really recommend Polpo - we had the most lovely time and enjoyed all the little plates we chose and the wine was great too. It's a rustic, unfussy restaurant.

Delicious, freshly cooked tapas. Huge variety. We especially love the zucchini salad and fries. The crab linguine was also wonderful. Our favourite restaurant in Covent Garden.
