Fantastic meal and location. Great service and offering of drinks.
Beautiful atmosphere right on the river. Great food and service
Always enjoy our visits to Popolo. Service was excellent & enjoyed our meal. Bruschetta has changed which was only down side, maybe have option of both would be good as not everyone is keen on mushrooms as opposed to tomato.
Great location, great atmosphere, great service, great food. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be returning again.
Service was friendly and attentive, and the food was brilliant as always. My guests will be returning as well, so you have made some new Popolo fans! Congratulations to everyone for a great lunch! One of my guests said that your Gnocchi was the best he has ever had anywhere, and the Porchetta was amazing - he said he will definitely be back soon to share the experience with his family, and also with his friends and work colleagues/clients.
I have been to Popolo's so many times and every time it has been great. I've introduced many friends to it and they all keep wanting to go back. Food is wonderful !
Great food, amazing service.. This place delivers everytime we are there.. Favourite place to eat on date night 😄😄😄
A fabulous birthday venue for a long lunch! Highly recommend
Lovely spot for lunch by the river.
Every dish orderded was perfect.
Great patio, water view, beautiful location. Server was excellent, comparable to US where id just reurned from.
A few menu items from dessert missing because it was Sunday... isn't weekend funday important?
Fantastic food and service. So good to have popolo open again.
Beautiful location, beautiful food, excellent service
Great venue to watch the qld sunset. The food is tasty and serving size large (even enough for a teenage boy!)
Great food, especially the Gnocchi. The staff were excellent too, kind friendly and patient!
Amazing Service and tasty food. Love this plance :)
Friendly, knowledgeable staff; great atmosphere and seriously delicious meals. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Good Italian food, we had three pizza which were all great. The views of the city are nice and the staff were very accommodating.
Enjoyable evening. Restaurant was a little cold inside however the view was lovely
Location & setting are superb. Food and concept are excellent. Menu options are a bit limited. Actual food was served lukewarm and a bit uninspiring. Could be brilliant on a cool evening with hearty pasta options.
We had an incredible lunch at Popolo. I would highly recommend the wagyu pasta - it was delicious! I also loved that most of the menu is share plates - no order envy! Great location, service and food. Can’t wait to return.
We have been to this restaurant numerous times and each time the service gets better! Which is why we continue to go back. They are always so helpful with any food intolerance and so pleasant to deal with! Thank you again for another excellent meal!
I can never fault this restaurant, the food is amazing and the service is so, so good. I love bringing people here as they are always blown away.
Great setting. Food fabulous. Service great. Whats not to love!!
We were celebrating what should have been our wedding day. The service was amazing and the food was incredible
Ah-mazing food! Such a great culture and really like the share plate options! Fantastic service and a great atmosphere!
Great food and excellent service. Peaceful atmosphere overlooking the Brisbane river.
Very friendly and helpful staff.. so the atmosphere is always pleasant.. top priority for us.
We were exhausted and it was lovely to be in a place where we could just relax.
The lamb was great as were the zucchini flowers.
It was great to see you had placed the tables well apart according to recent guidelines.
I so hope you can open again soon.
Always a great experience - a stunning view, great food, service and ambience.
Love this restaurant and would recommend trying it if you haven't already.
This restaurant was fine, but nothing memorable. The view was lovely, and the atmosphere of the restaurant is good. Food was fairly average, service was friendly but fairly slow. I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it to people.
Great set menu on offer, and to go to a restaurant that’s very busy but not to be rushed in any way is what you think of when deciding to go back, I so wish more restaurants were like this one, loved it
Fabulous Food as always, staff were attentive, service was very quick (Especially for a Friday night) Will definitely be dining here again.
We had a lovely table to celebrate a birthday - it was a fantastic night with great cocktails and great food. Highly recommend a view of the river at night
We had a delightful evening at Popolo with friends up from Sydney and we all felt that it was the perfect place for really interesting food in an outstanding location. Few places can beat an early autumn evening looking out over the Brisbane river from Southbank with good friends and great food.
Great food and location. Staff were friendly. Would highly recommend.
We requested a great table for our 16 year old's birthday dinner and when we arrived our table had a wonderful view of the river. The service was exceptional, the food so authentically Italian and delicious it was an outstanding evening.
One of entrees wasn’t Cooked properly so it was sent back but they dealt with it very professionally.
Lovely friendly and attentive service, best service weve had in ages for our table of 6.
Food fantastic, lots of plates to share.
Warm night beside the Brisbane river, life is good!
Every single meal we ordered was devine. Service was consistent but not obtrusive. So delicious that we have already made another booking for when we are back in town.
Lovely experience at Popolo. Great waitress & highly recommend
Great view over Brisbane River with a lively open environment & authentic food
