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.

We were lucky enough to walk in with only a 15 minute wait for a table. Just enough time for a cocktail starter!
The menu is small plate designed, which are a good size, not tapas, but more generous. The food is really interesting and a challenge for some of us, for example the wet polenta is not a texture most of us are used to for dinner.

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
