Safely re-homed after moving from its tiny former Dean Street location in 2012, Polpetto’s new Soho venue is much bigger and even houses its own ‘aperetivo’ bar. This character-filled Venetian-style bàcaro (traditional tavern) serves shareable small plates conjured up by chef Florence Knight.

Very disappointing. Ordered soft shell crab which just tasted of very oily batter, the celeriac and wild mushroom was bland and not very warm and the Special aubergine and pepper Pizzetta turned out to be 8 TINY cubes each of raw aubergine and pepper stranded on a mass of bland melted cheese.

The burnt butter bread that seems to be a bit of...more

Polpetto has a great vibe. My friend and I were seated in a little 'booth', these little alcoves they had created in the main dining room. So great for an intimate meal! And I love the way their bar stools fold away. Not really necessary but a nice design touch nonetheless.

Ok, so foodwise: everything was tasty. The highlight by far was the white sprouting broccoli with anchovies and shaved...more
