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.

    Poor. Whole point of POLPO is the octopus- but it’s not even on the menu anymore.

    Bits of meals missing but no information at ordering. Only when we asked where bits were did we get a terse reply of “we’ve run out”. No sorry, no offer of replacement.

    Loved the food but there were issues with the service. It was my birthday and I'd booked a table for 4 people several weeks in advance. When we arrived, on time, the man seating people said we had to wait till the group still at our table had finished their wine. Since we had a booking I assumed he would say something to them eventually. He never did, despite us asking several times. In the end we waited 35 mins for our table. The wait was only 45 mins for people walking in with no reservation. Would have been nice to get an apology, maybe a free drink, or just any acknowledgement that we'd been messed around.

    Dinner was great value and we had an excellent time. Service was nice, would have preferred more time in between dishes but difficult with tapas style so I understand.
