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
We loved our meals and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Staff were great and service was fast.
Impeccable service, perfect food. Favourite place in the city.
Our local. Our local. Our local. Our local. Our local
Not sure if your air-conditioned but on the night it was very warm. We were seated inside.
Had a great table and staff were very accommodating. Ordered a number is entrees, carpaccio, salmon, arancini, tempura flower heads. Carpaccio was ok, remainder was terrible, tempura batter was way too thick, arancini balls had no flavour whatsover and the salmon was very underwhelming. They did take the tempura flowers off the bill but I will not be going back in a hurry.
Great little Italian place, nice fresh food and lovely service
Went for the 6course Italian feast for $55 per person. It was amazing. Just a great way to sample the menu with high quality courses.
Great wine and nice atmosphere there
Food came out relatively quickly once we ordered. Service to order the food wasn't prompt. I don't know why they charge extra for water. But otherwise a nice location for a Sunday lunch.
Fantastic view, great service and really reasonably priced, hearty food.
My family had not been to Popolo before and they were very impressed with the ambience and the quality of the food, so I had a lovely birthday dinner.
Had a very enjoyable meal, but unfortunately could not finish our food as we ordered more than needed. Thank you for a good night out.
Italian menu with good choice and prices. Excellent service and delicious food.
will revisit,very friendly stuff, and they do remember you, makes you feel valued.
Everything was amazing, the food, the venue, the waitress. Will definitely be visiting again and recommending to everyone.
Great location and friendly staff who were very attentive, met with friends who were visiting from Europe and a good time was had by all.
The cost of water, valued at $9 and with no prior knowledge to it was a complete rip off! The food was quite lovely and filling, and came within a decent amount of time. Just considering the value of water, I’m quite weary of returning.
Wonderful food and lovely service - will go back soon!
Attended recently for birthday celebration. Was blown away by the service and quality of food. Beautiful view over the river. Would definitely return.
We celebrated our one-year anniversary at Popolo and had a fantastic time. Our server Sara made sure we were well looked after and the food was faultless!
Our family of 7 had an amazing night celebrating 3 birthdays. The food was fabulous. The staff were friendly happy and attentive. We were seated in a beautiful area with a view of the river. 10/10.
Always an incredible experience at Popolo, which is why I’ll always go back.
Incredible food and outstanding service.
One of the best, if not the best restaurant in South Bank
A fantastic dinner. Completely recommend to other. We will definitely return!
Me and my friends had a really nice time during our dinner. The food was really good, and everyone thought it was a good value for money. We went quite early in the night so not many people were there, but it made for a nice, quite dinner. Overall, we all had a really good time, and are more than likely to come back :)
Popolo were very accommodating to our large group (11 people) by allowing us to split the bill by item. The food was delicious and it’s a wonderful location.
We had a lovely Saturday lunch with old friends from Childers we had not seen in a very long time. The staff were helpful and welcoming and very keen to make sure we were given water and ice almost immediately after we sat down as it was indeed a warm afternoon. I asked for suggestions from the menu and the wait staff were most helpful with choices and order of food. The food arrived in a timely yet well paced.
