“Expensive.. Food was les then average..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

I had gnocchi and it wasn't done.. It felt like chewing on the warm dough.. The arugula salad was ok.. The server was playing on her phone while I was waiting for my grated cheese..

“BYOB with uptown food at neighborhood price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

We've eaten at Il Polpo at least a 2 dozen times. Every time has been a gastronomic experience. The service is friendly, courteous and prompt. The fish is fresh, expertly prepared, and presented artfully. All dishes are sized to satisfy healthy appetites.

“Delicious Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

My family ate at il polpo for the first time on a Saturday night. It is a small neighborhood restaurant with a pleasant, attractive interior. Although small, the tables are spaced so that diners are not seated too close to other tables. We were served fresh bread and bruschetta upon being seated; the bruschetta was excellent. Our food was delicious; servings were generous. The service was very good as well. We will definitely return!
