About this restaurant
After the runaway success of older sibling Polpo, pint sized Italian restaurant Polpetto brings tapas style Italian cuisine to London’s Dean Street. Situated in a small room above the famous French Kitchen in Soho, Polpetto is a deliciously authentic Venetian wine bar serving the most amazing osteria tapas like dishes to a mixed crowd. Bare zinc tables and exposed brick walls set the scene at this cosy restaurant where the food really is the main attraction. You really can try a bit of everything here, with all dishes served as small portions and prices more than reasonable. Indulge in duck and porcini meatballs osso bucco with creamy saffron risotto shoulder and pickled pepper pizzetta rabbit with pancetta and sardines with caper mayonnaise – just some of the delectable dishes on offer. The wine list is superb with most coming from Northern Italy’s smaller producers. Polpetto is a hugely popular Soho restaurant and is packed most days due to its size. If you want a true taste of Northern Italian food, Polpetto should be you London restaurant of choice.
