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.

Chef Francesco, has produced a menu that compliments our riverside location in Brisbane's iconic South Bank. Proud to showcase the cuisine of his home town Naples, his food focuses on presenting wonderful ingredients, simply.

    We went to Popolo on our trip to Brisbane from Melbourne to visit family and to celebrate a belated birthday with family. The location, ambiance, food and service were great. My first order though was not available which was slightly disappointing given we had an early booking but the second option did not disappoint. Everyone loved their meals and dessert was lovely! Looking forward to visiting again next time we are in Brisbane.

    Our fourth and last time going to this restaurant, have given it too many times to get it right but it keep’s disappointing. Went to celebrate my mothers birthday, put in the notes area asking for a window seat and celebrating a birthday and nothing! Got a crap seat with view of the toilet block and no acknowledgement of my mothers birthday. Food was passable, waited over 30 mins for the mains to come out with starters taken off the bill, at almost $400 for 3 people, very poor value for money, virtually robotic waitress not interested in her job. And of course, don’t forget the 10% surcharge on Sundays. Don’t bother with this place, go to 1889 Enotecca or Massimo.

    The staff at Popplo were attentive and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed every moment in the beautiful setting. I recommend Popolo for anyone wanting amazing Italian food in a picturesque setting!

    The only feedback I would have is that it would be great if they had a kids menu.

    It was wonderful. Very attentive staff. My colleagues turned up quite late, my fault really.. I should have accounted for rush hour and parking in such a popular location. The food was nice, my favourite was the tiramisu cake. Melts in your mouth. Service was quick considering we all ordered mains quite late into the booking and still managed to finish on 7. Will return, but this time with better planning around time on my part.

    Beautiful restaurant right on the River, and we were lucky to have a front table facing the city. This was appreciated as we had interstate visitors with us. Delicious food, wine and good services. We will be back.
