Popolo means ‘people’ in Italian, and linking food with people is the inspiration for the menu. Family and friends, old or new, food is there to be shared and enjoyed and the menu does just that.
Popolo has a perfect mix of lustrous industrial interior tones and a classic rustic feel, with breathtaking views of the Brisbane River.
Mention Italian food and instantly pasta and pizza come to mind. At Popolo, the pasta is house-made and cooked to perfection. With the ragu alla Bolognese, the meltingly tender pasta, with more than a generous amount of braised wagyu ragu, hits all the right spots. At Popolo they certainly do great, classic, wood-fire pizzas, so scrumptious that you want to keep taking a slice. And you will not want to pass on the signature free-range, slow-roasted Gippsland porchetta. The porchetta is full of flavours from the chestnut, onion and bread stuffing and star anise reduction – beautifully presented, and ready to be shared (or not!) and devoured.
PSST! Prefer to dine al fresco in the parklands along the picturesque Brisbane River? Then order one (or more!) of their picnic packs.
