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 dining experience at Polpo Soho. Was a treat for my parents before heading out to the theatre afterwards. I had previously been to the Ape & Bird but this was closed so decided to try this one out & wasn't disappointed. Lovely ambience with low lit lighting (but not too dark)

    The food is lovely my parents had never really ordered tapas before so we tried numerous dishes from the menu. A must try is the the pork & fennel meatballs. We also enjoyed the salmon crostini, beef ragu & steak which was beautifully cooked. We also ordered polpo's own wine which was lovely & worth a try.

    Staff were very accommodating & friendly in this small busy environment & cant wait to go back again.

    Busy and bustling - cramped tables, waiting staff made an effort to give us a bit more space. Food was good, good value for money overall.

    The food is always good at Polpo. Sadly, the waitors forgot our food, forgot to maintain us as a customer during our stay, and they seemed more interested in talking to each other than serving us. The staff seemed quite young, which is necessarily not a disadvantage, but when they "forget" why they are there for, it truly is. Disappointed.

    Setting was lovely. Food not very tasty. Risotto was tasteless.
    Service was good but waiter too oversharing with his private life!

    Main courses were fine; however salads and stsrters were not nice. Restricted variety. Great atmosphere
