Friendly staff, well priced and lovely outlook. We had veal and arancini to start then wagyu rump with eggplant for mains, as shared plates. Delicious! We will be back.

Nice food, service mostly good and great location. The lunch tasting menu is worth a try. Love the pumpkin ravioli, it's consistently good as are the aracini balls. A number of reviewers commented about the bill splitting issue. I've been here for lunch and they've allowed us to split the bill into individual accounts. My opinion: Popolo is a solid... More

We had dinner at Popolo in Friday night after work. My wife and I were joined by 2 sons and their partners. Staff were only too happy to assist us with food and wine selection resulting in a excellent spread. One of those places where food appears and empty plates disappear without a fuss. Would definitely recommend Popolo to others.... More

I am difficult - one of those pesky vegans - so I ended up with broccoli for dinner - literally that was it. But my colleagues loved their selection of steak and meatballs and pizza! Beautiful location and good atmosphere - service started off fantastic but fell away as they got busier. We visited on a Wednesday night and it... More

From the moment we arrived here we were made to feel very welcome and the attention and service was excellent. Adam was our (handsome) friendly and efficient server. My party of 3 shared 4 of the Tapas style portions and they were all really delicious, we were delighted that they were good size portions. The 4 dishes between us were... More

We took friends from the US here last night and whilst the food and location were both good (food delivery not great - sides / greens came out after the main share plates), we were disappointed with the ending. The bill was about $360 so we asked the waiter if we could split the bill down the middle (not into... More

We booked a picnic hamper for two and for $65 we got a delicious pizza for two, plenty of crispy French fries, a green salad with parmesan and balsamic, breads and an antipasto platter (very tasty) that would have fed an army plus two soft drinks of our choice. We chose the parma pizza and it was divine. We took... More

Good atmosphere and pleasant dining environment however the food was considered very ordinary and overpriced. Dessert was sickly sweet. I think I make better tiramisu at home and for an Italian restaurant it was really disappointing.
