Great atmosphere. Really friendly staff, especially our waiter. The food was really good. I was impressed with the choice. Loved that the prosecco came in an ordinary small tumbler. Arancini were my stand-out dish.

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.

    Lovely restaurant with delicious sharing plates and a relaxed atmosphere.

    Expensive for what it was. Staff friendly. Food ok.
    But Nothing to rave about.

    Lovely ambience and service. The veg fritto misto were quite disappointing and poorly executed but the starters and desserts thankfully made up for it.

    Great fan of Polpo in its various guises but this visit was disappointing - service was patchy, one item didn't arrive until we reminded them (though they graciously removed it from the final bill) and the food was under par. Still good but not great. Which was a shame.

    The ambient was very nice and the customer service pretty good too but the food was disappointing. The cichetti for 2 was very small - not for 2 as not every cichetto came in pair, instead it was one of each... very odd. But they were good.
    The spaghetti with meatball was really frustrating. The meatballs were nice but the spaghetti was: coldish, overcooked and the sauce was - sorry to say - for English tastebuds. Very bland, no taste of tomatoes, it felt like it came out of a tin. I've got the book and cook lots of dishes from it so it was very below expectations.

    Excellent lunch. Relaxed atmosphere, great service and the food and wine were spot on. Meatballs, seafood fritto misto and the pea & ricotta bruschetta were divine. We will return!
