Alle Testiere @ Polpetto - Bringing Venice to London

For longer than we can remember we've wanted to bring one of our favourite restaurants in Venice, Alle Testiere, to collaborate with us in London. With the Evening Standard's London Food Month approaching in June, we were presented with the perfect occasion to finally make it happen.

On 12th and 13th June, we will welcome Alle Testiere owners Luca and Bruno to Soho, as they spend a two night residency recreating their Venetian bacaro at Polpetto.

The menu at Polpetto, in keeping with the philosophy of Alle Testiere, will be crafted around fresh produce available on the day and may be subject to change...only for the better, of course! We've planned a starter of spider crab served in the shell with a herb salad, followed by a classic pasta course;spaghetti vongole. John Dory will be served with fine herbs, citrus juices & pink peppercorns, ending with a traditional Venetian dessert of baked cream pudding with pistachio biscuits.

There's a carefully selected wine list and we’re delighted to have sourced some of the best home-grown wines from the vineyards that sit on the island of Sant’Erasmo, in the Venetian Lagoon.

Tickets for the four course meal at Polpetto include a welcome Spritz and Venetian snacks and are priced at £65. Every guest will receive a copy of the Alle Testiere cookbook, included in the ticket price. You can book tickets here:

As part of Alle Testiere's residency, we have also teamed up with The Groucho Club to host two further dinners on the 14th and 15th June. If you would like to book a table for Alle Testiere x POLPO @ The Groucho Club, please email
