Polpo Covent Garden

Polpo Covent Garden

With everything Norman (and partner Richard Beatty) opens turning to gold, da Polpo is one of the hottest tickets in town. It's a little bigger than Spuntino or Polpetto with room for 70 diners and there's a meatball section on the menu.

"(Da) Polpo's kitchen here is as on form as ever. The meatball section has been beefed up (ha!) to six options, and our pork and fennel version was moist and well spiced, served in a rich and flavour-packed tomato sauce." READ REVIEW

"Classic cooking going on here, this is not a place for cutting edge ideas; rather there are comforting recipes and fresh salads, to accomodate the all day dining mood..." READ REVIEW

"da Polpo was always going to be a surefire hit but it’s good to see that they’re not relying on the group’s reputation alone and are instead trying to build something new for Covent Garden." READ REVIEW
