I rarely leave reviews but Popolo deserves a great one. The food was fresh, tasty and satisfying. The service was prompt, always polite, patient and attentive. A recipe for a great meal out!

We had the Mangia Mangia 6 course feast for our group. Bountiful (and beautiful) food, good company, good service, good wine and a stunning location. We will be back.

My mum & I dined at Popolo as a pre-show lunch (celebrating mums b'day). We were seated promptly, had an exceptionally attentive and knowledgeable waiter and were treated to fantastic food. If you are coming here, you must not go past the gorgeous arancini balls...absolutely fantastic. We also ordered a Parma pizza to share & a gorgeous Gorgonzola salad. Fabulous... More

Had a brilliant experience in Popolo in the early evening. Set on the river in Southbank, you cannot get a better outlook while enjoying sensational Italian cuisine. I would highly recommend Popolo as it has mostly shared dishes which gives you the ability to have great diversity of tastes to experience. Fantastic place for groups to enjoy.

Loved the atmosphere at Popolo ! The service was great and if you get a front seat you over look the Brisbane river while you eat. The food was delicious and so was the cocktail jug we ordered ! Would recommend to anyone :)

We went for pizza and Pollo alla cacciatora and of course some excellent wine. We were seated with a great view of the river and recieved superb service from a really pleasant young lady. We had the pizza first followed by the chicken. Both were excellent and possibly one of the best pizzas we have had for years, including in... More
