Squaremeal Review of La Polenteria ?

If you’re gluten-intolerant, vegan or vegetarian, this Soho Italian is a safe bet: everything on the menu is suitable thanks to an unswerving devotion to polenta. The production process is proudly described on the cream and jade walls of the small, casual dining room: polenta is made from gluten-free cornmeal ground from dried maize. Starters, brought by clued-up staff, include the popular courgette and polenta ‘box’, stuffed with vegetables, but we particularly recommend the burrata mousse – a wobbling tower layered with aubergine beneath stretched, crisp polenta sheets. Mains major in pasta: try the delicious, firm beef ravioli, scattered with raisins and pine nuts. We also enjoyed some carefully cooked pork fillets, creatively paired with a pleasing liquorice sauce. There are numerous vegetarian dishes too, including cauliflower ‘steak’ and black rice-stuffed baby courgettes. Desserts, all made on the premises, cover the Italian classics, while the wine list ventures beyond Italy and offers a strong by-the-glass choice. Brunch and lunch are served daily, adding to the appeal of this useful West End option.
