We chose the $79 pp 6 dish offer, and it was incredible. So much delicious, fresh food! Arancini balls still an all time favourite. But how good is the Ragu alla Bolognese made with Wagyu? Slipped into a happy food coma later in the afternoon :-)

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 !
