My partner and I recently made a trip up to visit family in Brisbane and they recommended Popolo to us. The views were truly incredible and we could see most of Brisbane city from our table outside. We really enjoyed the idea of the share...More

Very friendly and efficient service. Starters were extremely tasty and well sized. Main course Pizza was good- not great( a bit dry) drinks were fine. Meal well priced. Enjoyed the experience.

Don't even waste your time with this pretentious overpriced waste of time. Food is OK but the service and organisation left the building with Elvis. Go to any other authentic Italian restaurant.....anywhere!

For me the ultimate evening of entertaining guests to our city is to catch the citycat along the river to SouthBank and wander along to Popolo for amazing Italian food to share around the table (my personal favourite is the pumpkin ravioli) and cocktail jugs...More

No I don't think so. you are probably allowed to bring wine but would be charged corkage anyway. Best idea give them a call.
