Tips

  • Terrible waiting staff. Food is mediocre. First time I've ever requested a service charge be removed.
  • Hmm. Think two years of glittering reviews have given way to complacency. Meatballs dry, duck ragu no flavour, plus everything tastes of uncooked canned tomatoes.
  • Owner Russell Norman has branched out on his own & the result, quite frankly, is remarkable: a hole-in-the-wall that has cool, understated interiors & some of the best food in the city.
  • Affogato, gods answer to dessert!
  • The Fritto misto is amazing...
  • Great food, lovely vibe, just get them to turn the music down.
  • Food was average, at best.
  • Spritz it up, then dive into their fantastic menu. House wine is their own = dangerously quaffable. Finish with an affogato. King of desserts!
  • There's a probably-not-so-secret Campari bar downstairs for negroni fun
  • Drink many Negronis
  • mackeral tartare... anything. just yum!
  • Amazing amazing restaurant. great soundtrack. Try the sardines. DO IT!
  • A Venetian bacaro meets Lower East Side Manhattan bar, Polpo has a lovely buzzy atmosphere & relaxed but professional service in the middle of Londons Soho. The food is simple but generally very good
  • The liver is very good.
  • Hidden gem in Soho - well worth a visit. Try the mackerel tartare...
  • The best new(ish) place in soho.
  • Really surprised how good the food is here. Think this might become a regular spot.
  • Italian tapas. Fantastic place.
  • Compared to their sister site Spuntinos service is far too stiff and the food is on the bland side.
  • Hmmmmmn. Been twice now and I don't quite get it. I just find the flavours a bit muddy.
