Risotto del Giorno
Ask your waiter for Risotto of the day
Dinner for two. Excellent table out the front looking across the river to the city.
Service was excellent and prompt and they achieved that balance between interrupting and being attentive.
The food was great.
Amazing view to enjoy a very yummy dinner. Friendly staff and great service.
Great Family evening out, wonderful experience, we will be back!
We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Popolo, food was delicious!
Great location and atmosphere, very well organized, fine customer service and food
Waiter that seated us seemed a little unsure of the sign in procedure.
Waitress that served us all night didn't know the specials. We like a bit of a drink and we had empty glasses for a long time.
Waited a long time for mains to be cleared and wasn't offered dessert so we went next door to Aquitaine.
Food was amazing. Cocktails great. Ambience is great.
I can't recommend Popolo enough. The food, the wine, the service. Just wonderful.
I've been twice and I can't wait to plan another excuse to go.
Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side but it's worth every cent.
The staff are all magnificent.
A great evening - my son's birthday experience was great.
good food. good service. a little expensive and noisy
Great service, great food. Fantastic view and atmosphere.
We really loved the food and service at Popolo! All staff were friendly and helpful and the food and wine was just perfect.
Poor service. Had to remind staff that we were there. But after that plates and wine glasses were whisked away before we'd barely finished.
The stuffed zucchini flowers were coated in a very thick dry batter. The ravioli was cold and undercooked. The gnocchi though, was a highlight.
Disappointing, I took my guests there because I'd enjoyed eating there twice before. But I won't go back again.
Beautiful setting friendly service fabulous food...lovely river outlook. First class
Great place to dine out. Service was very friendly with the quality and flavor
of the meals a high standard
Nice atmosphere looking out over the river
Great restaurant - the best thing was really the view :)
We ordered: Fish of the Day (barramumdi), brocollini sides, mushroom truffle pizza and pepperoni pizza. Everything except the pepperoni pizza was outstanding. The Pepperoni pizza had a bit too much oil. If it was just toned down on the oil it would have been much better. But overall, great experience!
We really enjoyed our meal at Popolo.
The food was delicious and the staff were excellent. We will come back again.
Very accommodating with our requests! Perfect place to go before theatre.
I went there for a first date and what a time it was. The service was great. the location and view was awesome and the food was amazing. Honestly it was the best dining experience I have had in a long while. My date agreed it was very nice.
The food was superb in it's simplicity and freshness. The staff were excellent.
Great experience, came for a friend's birthday and had a great time.
Very happy with service. Food was great. Love their arancini balls! Yum!
Food always super yummy and service outstanding as always. Always love coming here.
Popolo is an amazing place, great service, amazing delicious food! however, the food took a little long to arrive. Nevertheless, i would recommend and definitely will be back.
Lovely food and service. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant
The food was amazing. I had the spatchcock and it exceeded my expectations. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable and the view of the Brisbane river made it a night to remember.
Very friendly service and the food was delicious! The steak was the best we have ever had!!
The menu states the options are share plates, which could imply they are large meals. I did not find the meals large. I am glad we took the advice of our sever and ordered two entrees and two main meals to share. This worked out perfectly for my husband and I to try four options, without any food wastage. We enjoyed the meals & the water view.
Delicious food with a riverfront outlook. Attentive staff. Definitely worth a visit!
Love this place. All the dishes are excellent- especially the calamari entree. Service is efficient and friendly and the cocktails are great.
Worth going, friendly staff, good food, great experience 👍
Great food, great service. Can't ask for much more
Our first visit to Popolo but will not be the last. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. will be a family favourite from now on.
Amazing food. Staff pleasant and hard working. Made to feel had to rush to leave - Had only taken last bite of dessert and waiter appeared with Bill and eftpos machine - Still had wine in glass and 45 minutes left on reservation.
A lovely evening! Both the food and the service was outstanding.
We had eaten here before and had a lovely time, so we are unsure about this misstep. It was a Friday night and I think they were just geared up to crank through tables. We were advised as soon as we sat down we would not be allowed to linger, that we had two hours only. (Which is fair enough, but it was said abruptly). Immediately after our entrees were whisked away, one of the mains arrived, for one member of our party. The next mains came 10 minutes later. We just sat there while our party member ate so their ragú wouldn’t get cold.
We wanted to get dessert but felt that we wouldn’t be welcomed lingering. We still had plenty of time in our 2 hour block, but felt uncomfortable as our table was cleared so quickly. We were also seated right next to the hosts bench, so the whole evening felt mechanical. This was disappointing as we were celebrating a birthday and an engagement. With the choices that Southbank and Brisbane have to offer we won’t be rushing back.
Popolo feels like family. Can’t do without them.
Such a fabulous experience. Great good. Amazing service.
Poppolos made our anniversary celebration very special
Views were lovely but the food quality didn’t match the price tag.
