Service/staff excellent. Don’t order chopped salad. Loud and overpriced.

Polpo is always excellent. The restaurant hosts and staff are amazing, the food is always prepared to perfection, and the valets couldn't be nicer or more efficient. The bar is festive and inviting. The dining room is comfortable and cozy. You cannot go wrong with an evening at Polpo.

Must be the worst meal I ever had in Greenwich. We took my mother to dinner etc and was embarrassed. The appetizers were subpar. The zucchini flowers were terrible, the meatballs were undercooked and the salad had way too much dressing. The calamari was the only ok appetizer. Was hoping that the main courses would be better, but unfortunately they were not. The angry 3lb lobster for $120 had no taste and did jot even seemed as though it.was sautéed in any way. The Sunday sauce was supposed to have braziole but they camouflaged it by splitting a metball.in half. The pasta pomodoro and pasta bolognese was tasteless. Truly a terrible experience. A $500 check for 4 people with no dessert and 1 person Being a 13 year old is way overpriced. Will not be back.

Service was slow. The selection of white wines by the glass was poor. For an Italian restaurant, there should have been a gavi available. There were 3 chardonnays. I wasn't informed that they were out of the apple pie until 15 minutes after I ordered it.

We went for our anniversary and ate outside. Everything was wonderful! Service is excellent, Kelly was our waitress, very professional and efficient.
Branzino and Veal were cooked to perfection and excellent.
The entire staff is warm and welcoming, that is why this is one of our favorite restaurants. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was our second experience at Polpo. The service was much better the first time. The food was good. I recommend the chopino and the braised rabbit. I would avoid the zucchini flower appetizer. There was way too much batter on the delicate flower.

Food was very good. We ate outside. However the men’s room was disgusting with drain fly infiltration everywhere. The ladies was filthiest most disgusting place no paper towels and a dirty dirty soap container that was almost empty. What the owners couldn’t clean the place during co-vid??? The regular ladies room was broken. Considering the filth of this place I would not return. It seems it’s very very popular tho. The bathroom had a weird old dirty stink too.

We apologize for the condition of our bathrooms as we are currently and continuously working with our plumbers and pest control on getting to the root of the issue that seems to have affected many of our bathrooms.

We visited this restaurant for the first time. Room was crowded, noise level too loud.
Food was good, not great but good. I ordered linguine al vongula. Clams were adequate, not plentiful. My husband started with the octopus and that was delicious.
Another person had a veal dish and liked it.

We have been to Polpo many times over the years and it never disappoints. Food, service, ambience all excellent. We were there a couple months ago and it was kind of quiet. But not last night! It is so good to see people going back out. If you are looking for an outstanding experience in lower Fairfield County - this is the place!

We were outside which was lovely. I asked for a green salad and my previous experience they would make something simple like that for you. Instead I was told to order from the salads on the menu. Both of the 2 pasta orders at our table (which were completely different were bizarrely overly salty. I love salt so if I am complaining... it was salty. The bread was delicious. Is it under new management? It was disappointing as we were so excited to be going there.
