I wasn't sure about ordering the Crab Cakes, but I'm glad I did. I already knew the Italian dishes were great and so were the Crab Cakes. You can't go wrong at Popi's. My dining partner had a delicious past and sausage dish.

e food was great as always. Service not so great. We were the only three in the entire restaurant and it was an awkward service. They had to find our server and we continued to need to find the server.
