Oozing industrial chic, POLPO Soho serves up signature Venetian small plates. Exposed brick walls and rustic wooden seating are joined by a charming wooden bar, well stocked with Italian wines and spirits.

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 Soho 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 Italian charm to London, POLPO on Beak Street is a 5-minute walk from both Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus Tube stations.

    Good, but not as good as previous experiences.

  • (((** by from London

    nothing to complain, just a few menu items not available and the coffee was not good at all.

  • (((** by from London

    Empty when we arrived yet service was still slow. Took 25 minutes for them to come over. Didn't have mushrooms which were on 2 of the 4 items.
    Was okay but service wasn't great. Waitress didn't know what Scafata was which again, considering it was one of 4 main items is pretty poor.

    as good as the book, even more real, simple but essential dishes

  • ((((* by from London

    Excellent food and a really tempting menu throughout. Service a little patchy but didn't spoil the experience and a great atmosphere for a Wednesday lunchtime.
