The first Polpo opened on Beak Street in September 2009. It is a lovely and remarkable coincidence that the building was once home to the Venetian painter Canaletto. There is a blue plaque on the wall to commemorate this.
Polpo is a bàcaro. This is a Venetian word to describe a humble restaurant serving simple food and good, young local wines.
POLPO has ten restaurants across London, Brighton & Bristol.
