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.

    We really enjoyed our experience at Polpo we had a seat on the end of the row of seats which was good because some of the tables looked a little penned in. The welcome was warm and we had a belini to start. The antipasti was delicious particularly the tempura style califlower and the salmon crisp breads were fabulous. All the dishes were lovely and we liked the nice touch of having the chocolate salami to take away. Service was good and seamless apart from paying when none of the card machines seemed to work we got there in the end with the third machine.

    Love this place. Good beers and wine, great food, perfect for people who like sharing a few dishes rather than one big one.
    Never had a bad meal and always reasonably priced.

    The food was delicious as ever. Sadly we were placed on a table near the kitchen. This meant we we constantly jostled by other diners and particularly the two waitresses. The waitresses were not particularly attentive and considering it was the first hour of service they seemed more intent on disappearing to drink their tea and coffee! A disappointing visit to one of our favourite restaurants.
