Went a couple weeks ago for dinner. We arrived about 5 min prior to our reservation time, about 8:10pm and asked to sit at the bar. Bartender was not really helpful in picking a wine, but all the same we had a drink and waited. We saw people being called but no one came for us to bring us to... More

It's old school looking with good solid Italian flavors. You can get it all here. Piano playing whilst you drink in a lively bar. Food is great. I had a pasta appetizer (delicious) followed by fish. The flavors are great. Dishes look good. Plenty of choices all the way upto market priced lobsters. Desert for me was a tasty cheesecake.... More

For a setting like this and the prices, my expectations were high. But service was bad, forgetting orders or special requests. The place was also pretty loud even though there were not so many customers. The polpo napolitani as appetizer was very good. The mussels, which was special appetizer of the day, was pretty tasteless. The seafood salad was okay... More

We went with friends for lunch. The place had 2 other tables occupied. Service was terrible! We ordered drinks and I didn't get mine. There was no bartender. The food orders took a long time to get out. It was a terrible experience in what is usually a nice restaurant.

Very good food.. nice upstairs area for large parties or groups. Expendive. A little off the beaten track being tucked in on an old post road. No real competitive restaurants nearly.

Everyone complains about the noise level inside Polpo, and we all wish they would install some noise deafening tiles. But a meal at Polpo is still a wonderful experience. The menu is strong, the wine list is excellent w many price levels, the service is knowledgeable and they are equally adept at pasta, pesce and carne. The daily specials are... More

Pleasant patio, mediocre fare, calamari was like bar food, salmon special was a tiny portion, chicken paillard was dry, rose, cost $20/bottle too much, poor value.... but a very friendly, convivial atmosphere and owner, make up for the shortcomings.
