Everything about this place is perfect: the atmosphere is lively and warm, as is the service; the food is exquisite - fresh, wholesome yet indulgent... Our party of four had recently been to the so-called "best pizza in the country" in Brooklyn and ALL agreed the crust on my scrumptious pizza (the special, with broccoli raab, roast garlic, and mascarpone,...

Went there for brunch with friends. It was quite nice and delicious. Staff was friendly. Made accommodation for my allergy to wheat.

Right from the start my wife and I had attention from 3 employees, Janie seated us up front near a window, Lila filled our water glasses all night, and Juliana was our waitress who was always available for our needs. Our Lamb burgers were superb, as were our cocktails. If you are in the area or just want a nice... More

The food is pretty good but took a long time and the food was cold. The waitperson took it back and it was luke warm this time. Very expensive for the quality

I've dined at Popola well over a dozen times in the last couple of years and while the food is almost always tasty, the service is almost always terrible. The servers are friendly, but the restaurant seems to be constantly under staffed - either front of the house or back. On our last visit - Saturday brunch - we showed... More

I made a reservation here based on reviews. I ordered the Vegetarian Risotto. I can honestly say it was the least appetizing meal I have had. It had no appealing flavors, with very small chopped up vegetables and a bitter taste. I could not eat it. The bill was adjusted, but our waitress did not come back to check on... More

Our daughter and then fiancé moved to Bellows Falls a year ago. During this past year we have been up to visit about 10 times and have dined at Popolo at least 4 or 5 times and always enjoyed it. So it was a no brainer to dine there the evening before their wedding two weeks ago. We were a... More

Not a bad place to eat. The only problem I found was they have a uncommon menu which made it difficult to feed my kids.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner with friends. The restaurant was wonderfully air conditioned on this hot evening, it wasn't overly noisy, and there was a nice group of diners who filled the restaurant. The menu always has interesting and, I assume, local foods that are given a unique twist. The service was terrific. FYI, later in the evening it's not... More

Popolo serves Italian-inspired farm-to-table cuisine in a casual setting at the Windham Hotel in Bellows Falls. We work to create a varied, affordable menu using mostly locally-sourced ingredients and an exciting drink and wine list.

We also promote a wide variety of events including concerts, movies, and parties. The menu of food and conversation is ever-changing as Chef John-Michael Maciejewski's untethered imagination presents dining specials almost every day and night.
