Italian
Here at Popolo, we passionately embrace the philosophy that food is the link that brings family and friends together. With the word ‘popolo’ itself meaning people, we aim to replicate an experience that can only be felt at Nonna’s house.

Inspired by the Italian art of feasting, the carefully crafted shared menu is where local seasonal produce and high quality authentic ingredients come together to form a modern yet authentic dining experience. Grab a drink at the bar and nestle into the comfortable and contemporary venue as you soak up the spectacular views and vibrant atmosphere of one of the best Italian restaurants Brisbane has to offer.

Boasting a mix of sleek modern industrial interiors and classic Australian design features, our dynamic yet relaxed atmosphere strikes the perfect tone for your afternoon cocktail affair.

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.

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.
