    really liked the food - very unusual and tasty dishes and possible to order as few or as many as we wanted. No fuss but easy ambience.

    I eat at Polpo regularly and the Maiden Lane one is my favourite in terms of ambience. Food is consistently and reliably excellent although I always order the same! Food quality and taste is amazing - small plates of Italian tapas with good diversity of options. Service is polite and quick. Only downside is the queue for an evening table if your group is

    Our first time there and loved everything we had. The crab linguine was our favourite and I especially liked the chick pea meatballs. The sevice couldn't have been better. Will be back!

    Its like eating at a family members house. There's no rush, there's no persistent pestering for more drinks, or feedback, it's just at ease. The staff at this location know their menu well and this gives a far better experience to those who are unsure of the cuisine and the drinks on offer. The menu is extensive but not over whelming, everything is well prepared and well presented. To consider is essentially right in Covent Garden, it feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city, honestly, you need to eat here.

    Nice atmosphere, varied dishes and after a bit of a mix up with our booking the service was good
