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.

    Efficient and friendly service; each of the five plates ordered was delicious but especially the pork & fennel meatballs; the montepulciano was okay but a bit rough.

    Good food, good variety and nice size dishes to enable you to share a few!
    Only downside - a lot of dishes involving cheese / dairy for someone who is lactose intolerant.

    Food was delicious. Service a little too laid back - we probably would have had desserts and coffees but ran out of time as ou waiter did not come to the table. Food and atmosphere were excellent. Staff very friendly.
