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.

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

    Booked online easily and confirmed when Polpo called on the day. Shown straight to table on arrival right at the back near the bar where dishes were handed to waiting staff so a bit busy and distracting and not always pleasant smells wafting out of the kitchen. Waiting staff very friendly and nice but maybe could have done more to ask if we understood the menu and what sort of things to order - amounts, combinations, etc. Nice touch to immediately bring tap water to table. Food was nice - especially the classic meatballs and chicken mushroom tagliatelle (although temperature was a little tepid). Cod cheeks and lentils could have done with more fish to balance the large amount of lentils. Good value for money. Lunch for two cost less than £60 inc a beer and coffees. I'd visited before and enjoyed it while not feeling like I was desperate to rush back and probably feel the same again now.

    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.
