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 Venetian small plates and spritz. Hand-rolled meatballs, freshly-stretched pizzettes and fresh colourful salads head up the menu. The main menu varies with the seasons and favourite creations include cuttlefish & squid ink risotto with gremolata, roast stuffed pork, lentils & radicchio and crab & chilli linguine. For dessert, choose from a variety of classics, such as tiramisu or Venetian ricotta doughnuts with cinnamon sugar.

In addition to the main menu, POLPO Soho offers a great value all-day set menu, and daily changing specials to look out for on the blackboard. Aperitivo Time takes place every day from 4-6pm. Sip on a refreshing Spritz and enjoy some delicious bar snacks like black truffle crisps & Bella di Cerignola olives, for just £5.

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

    Delicious across the board! Loved the marinaded baby octopus - surely a signature dish!

    Good service, good food, good atmosphere. Roast pork with lentils was delicious.

    Excellent and unusual food. Lovely meatballs and Parmesan croquettes, plus fresh seafood frito misto. Reasonable priced light lunchtime house white. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.

    Having lurched here before I was disappointed on this occasion. Food was poor. I had the crab linguine and it was not fresh, not quite bad enough to send back, but not far off it! Service was chaotic and random. It was a very busy Saturday but they should be able to do better; there was no sense of anyone being in control.

    Nice food, although small portions. Slow service. Waiters not very attentive. A bit cramped inside but still on a quiet day it would be nice.

  • (((** 27 March 2017 by G from London

    The food was lovely but the service was terrible - although this was down to one member of staff in particular, who was rude and unprofessional - the rest of the staff were lovely and our waitress was great. I'd think twice about returning to the Soho restaurant but might try another Polpo elsewhere as the food was very good.

    First class food, first class service.
