My partner and I dined here for dinner one last. We were greeted straight away and led to a table. We ordered, entree came out pretty much after only 3 minutes. As soon as we finished that, our mains came straight out. Spot on service and reasonably priced. Would dine again.

The street address is misleading. It is actually on the walk through South Bank Parklands near the maritime museum. Definitely worth it - a lovely meal (Roast chicken in a tomato/olive sauce) and the scallop entree was excellent. A bit rushed though as they had booked our table again for later in the evening.

I've been here twice now with my girlfriend, and both times has been amazing. Extremely fast turn around with delicious results. A+

Visited for lunch on the weekend. A mix of good and bad points. The meatballs were served barely lukewarm which was a shame as the flavour was excellent. The arancini were hot but lacking in flavour and seasoning. The pizza was pleasant and nice if you like a more crispy base rather than a traditional soft chewy Italian base. Finally,... More

The place has a wonderful location, nice service, decent selection of drinks and food. But do not order pizza - it look like a Turkish bread without a proper base with mozzarella - I love proper pizza and was deeply disappointed.

Hi There, It is sad to hear you did not have a wonderful experience at Popolo. From the sounds of it, it looks like you have received the Schiaciatta - Which is house made pizza dough baked with olive oil and salt, and served with Heirloom tomatoes, Casa Motta Hand stretched Mozzarella, and Basil. Very simple, and definitely not a... More

I always have lunch at this restaurant whenever I visit Brisbane. A glass or two of pinot grigio and one of my favourites: either a Pear and Gorgonzola salad, or Calamari Fritti (with the most delicious coating), or Antipasto platter, will not disappoint. With happy and friendly staff, and such a wonderful view - there is no better way to... More

Great place to meet friends, share wonderful food and drinks. The waiters helped us with choices and we shared our food. WInes and beer were very enjoyable. It is a lovely place to sit by the river and watch the world go by. Lots of people were ordering baskets of food to sit on the grass outside the table service... More

Loved where we were seated (prime river view position) ... fantastic waiter named Mitch who attended to our every need....food was delicious....cocktails wonderful... the only negative - is that the food could have been a little bit hotter when served...but other than that we are looking forward to...

I have just arrived home from another great visit to Popolo. Myself and my partner have had dinner at Popolo several times now and I just keep going back (can't stay away). The food truly is delicious. I have sampled almost every dish on the menu and each one was exceptional. My particular favorite is the Schiacciata pizza bread. I... More
