If you’re a fan of tasty, vibrant Italian cooking, using high-quality seasonal ingredients, served in a casual and friendly environment, then you need to be heading to Polpo Smithfield sooner rather than later. Specialising in Venetian cuisine specifically, you’ll find an enticing menu that’s brimming with classics from Venice and the neighbouring region.* Located on Cowcross Street in London, this branch of Polpo is right in the heart of Smithfield and is within walking distance of Farringdon and Barbican tube stations. Perfect for dining with friends or that special someone, you’ll love relaxing over mouth-watering pizzette topped with prosciutto and gorgonzola, sautéed tiger prawns with chilli and garlic, broad bean, mint & ricotta bruschetta or pan-roasted roasted sea bass served with tomatoes, anchovies, olives, capers and basil – all washed down with a chilled glass of prosecco or a Venetian spritz, of course.

Get a table before they're gone
Food was great and attentive service. The restaurant was just a bit loud so it was hard to communicate with the other people at the table.
Great food, great service. Looking forward to new menu in 2 weeks!
Lovely staff with swift and attentive service, consistently delicious food
Popular among London locals and in-the-know foodies, Polpo Smithfield takes reservations exclusively via Quandoo as well as always keeping tables back for walk-ins.
