Polpo serves authentic Venetian cicchetti, small plates resembling Spanish tapas. The place is rustic as if you had walked into a side canal in Venice, with wooden tables and the paper towel with the menu. But the food is excellent and served quite fast, so even if you have to wait, know that it will not take very long. The meatballs are the best! By the way, they have published a beautiful cookbook.
