Polpo Ratings and Reviews
What a wonderful restaurant! I give Polpo Five Stars * Ron Rosa, the owner, has done a great job in creating an old world feeling at Polpo with equally great food! Being a restauranteur in Philadelphia, I know how challenging it can be to be consistent and Ron exceeded my expectations not only with his food but also with his staff's service and attention to detail. I wouldn't think twice about going back and plan to do just that again soon. Thanks for a wonderful meal and interesting conversation.

The food is very good, although expensive, at Polpo. I have written positive reviews in the past about Polpo but this review is about something else.
Upstairs there is a flat screen tv which this night, was flashing black and white scenes of vintage movies. I don't get it. I find the flashing screen VERY annoying. This is not a bar- whose looking at a tv screen when you're socializing with friends? One time we sat at the table immediately under the tv and we asked them to turn it off, which they did. At that time a sporting event was on. No one in the room was watching and if you sat under the tv, the screen was flashing directly in your eyes.
I understand that perhaps the tv is there for private parties to show personal videos or pictures. But if I have to sit upstairs for dinner, I would prefer that the tv be turned off.
My wife and I were VERY disappointed. This was intended to be a special birthday dinner for my wife. The disappointing experience began when the hostess showed us to the table. Rather than sitting us downstairs in the main dining room they sat us upstairs. It was so noisy that even if you yelled you could not hear the other person. The table was in the middle of a walkway. We requested a different table and the hostess told us that this was the table they had for us and it would be an hour's wait for another table. Incredibly bad attitude. I told them that it was my wife's birthday when the reservation was made. When they called me to confirm the dinner I reminded them it was my wife's birthday. I even called an hour before we got there to remind them that it was my wife's birthday and I wanted them to give her a little piece of cake with a candle when the meal was over. They did not do anything for my wife. I saw a couple of other tables get birthday cakes with candles, but not my wife. I have eaten at Polpo before and I thought it was very good. I had not been there on a Saturday night before. I will never go there on a Saturday night again. Bottom line, I am very disappointed. When I told the host on the way out that they had forgotten they asked me if we wanted a drink. It was nearly 10pm and we were on our way out so I told them no ... too little too late. I am sorry to write such a negative review but the experience was terrible and disappointing.
The food is fantastic, the attention and the service too. The restaurant is on the expensive side (i.e. > $70 per guest, with one glass of wine each). The pasta is great as well as the menu of the day.
The valet parking is nice, $4-$5 suggested tip. It gets really crowded despite how expensive is.
We started out at the bar and were welcomed by the friendly bartenders. The drinks were made perfectly. We sat in the upstairs dinning area at a nice table and the service was very attentive.
The food was very tasty and satisfying. I started with the grilled octopus since i figured since it’s named after it. For me it was just ok. It was not as grilled with the char marks, however It was tender. The flavor was nice though. The pasta was fresh.
I love this place. There are about 7 tables in the bar area where there is a piano player. It was so much fun that everyone was up from their tables and just dancing wherever you could. The menu is great. The food and service was excellent. The people that work there are great. I was there for over 4 hours! I can't wait to go back.
We just loved our quiet Sunday dinner at Polpo. Loved the live piano music, the table in the bar and the delicious food. Our pastas were perfect. wish you were not showing NFL football though as they are so disrespectful to our country, our flag and our troops.
First it was my 46th Anniversary and there is no place better to hook up with friends. Piano player is sensational and knew all our favorites. Food was outstandi g. Anyplace where the owner comes to the table to welcome you has a touch of old world class. Judge Judy was dining with her husband.
I love this place. Yes, it's pricey, but the food is always delicious and exceeds expectations. 4 of us dined and sampled each other's meals; one meal was just as good as the next with high praise for the salmon and chicken. The desserts were delicious, but quite small for the price.
The restaurant has gone downhill. The service was initially quite poor - the waiter spilled my wife's drink all over us, did not change the table cloth or even bring a new drink! Until we asked. The waiter forgot the dessert, and took up our plate before we had finished. He was completely distracted. Eventually, a younger waiter took over - who was much better and much more attentive.
The food was decent, the wine was warm, and the desserts limited. I would not recommend
My wife and I are now Polpo regulars. You are greeted by a charming lady (Donna I believe) who always honors Open Table reservations immediately. The cuisine is punctuated by the proprietor's family's north of Rome cuisine. The baked clams are marvelous as is the veal picatta and chicken Martini...Watch out for the tapenade, a fiery amuse bouche that requires plenty of water to cool the unsuspecting palate. We drive to this wonderful restaurant off Rout 1 in Greenwich, CT about once per season. We recommend it. A. Morse
2nd time there and the last. 1st time we got seated in the bar which my wife did not appreciate She felt there was ample, better seating available. Service was very poor this recent meal. Expressed my dietary concerns to the waiter and he was inattentive and thoughtless. My grilled fish came slathered in butter. We dropped $270 and it did not feel special. Like a diner with table clothes but much smaller portions. The waiter offered to split the salad my wife and I shared into two plates for an extra $4, meanwhile the salad was bland and terrible! We barely saw the waiter the whole night let alone the Captain.
