Food drenched in historical Art



Food drenched in historical Art

Canaletto is sure to have been a fan of the food

Location: 41 Beak Street, W1F 9SB

Description: 'POLPO' is a Venetian bacaro serving Italian small plates and simple northern Italian wines in relaxed and humble surroundings.

And...the building housing the restaurant, wine bar and private room dates from the early eighteenth century and was once home to the Venetian painter Canaletto.

With a menu inspired by the bacari of Venice offering traditional cicheti as well as modern takes on Italian classics...and a twitter page - twitter.com/PolpoSoho - this is once to keep an eye on!
