We Say

The Setting

Polpo is a mini-chain of award winning Venetian restaurants. Its Industrial-chic décor sets the perfect vibe for a lovely date or a good catch up with few friends.

The Atmosphere

Polpo is a small typical Italian kind of restaurant. The interior design is very cosy, with brick walls, high tables to share and industrial lighting. Their food menu reflects the vibe they are setting. No real main dishes, just loads of delicious tapas to choose between. We’ve had a fair few, but always wanted more! They’re THAT good. The staff is very friendly and will help you make up your mind and give you a guideline of what people usually get, how many dishes ect. We were sharing a table with another very small group of people and that’s also what make sit special. Sharing is caring is their way of life! Grazie mille!

The Drinks

Polpo puts extra care in their cocktails. They even have masterclasses, and that, is usually a good sign!There are only a few on the menu but it seems like its doing its job. And as everything here, it is compatible with the rest of the menu and the atmosphere!

“SHARING A TABLE, MEZZES AND PRECIOUS MOMENTS WITH YOUR LOVED ONES. WE’D ADVISE TO GO THERE FOR SOME DINNER, SO THE DRINKS CAN FLOW WITH NO LIMIT!”

They Say

“A fun and lively Venetian bacaro, with a stripped-down, faux-industrial look. The small plates, from arancini and prosciutto to fritto misto and Cotechino sausage, are so well priced that waiting for a table is worth it.”

The crab linguine was my absolute fave. Others including the tiger prawns and potato and parmesan croquettes were also very delicious.

Loved the octopus carpaccio and sliced steak with kale. Wine was reasonably priced too.
