My friend and I really enjoyed all the dishes we tried - for me the highlight was the creamy aubergine tempura, while my friend's favourite was the delicous lamb. The wine, which was helpfully recommended by our waitress, was great as well. Our waitress was very friendly, happy to help with ordering (it was our first time at Popolo), and even managed to let us have more than our allotted 90 minutes at the table. All in all, highly recommended.

Food delicious. Service charming but a bit haphazard. Overall a lovely evening, we'd definitely come again and have recommended you to friends already.

We loved our meal here. Serious brownie points with the parents, who were visiting from Australia.

We had a great time. I loved sitting at the counter. I’ve been talking to multiple friends about the fried olives and delicious wine and planning a repeat visit.

The restaurant is very cosy and the service is excellent! I ke that they paid attention to my special request and event offered to make a special vegetarian side dish! Food is super yummy but a little on the expensive side.

Food and drink is amazing, location and interior is cool, staff are decent, 1:45min seatings are too short and it makes the difference between recommending it or not. I would not recommend this to friends as they will be turfed out in for too short a time. We were reminded multiple time of when we needed to leave from the moment we sat down, not very welcoming...

My favourite dining experience in the past two years. Ideal for discerning diners lacking pretense. Great food in a warm, simple space served lovingly.

Everything was ok but there was nothing exceptional. Great to try once as the food is better and fresher compared to similar restaurants in London.

Innovative dishes rooted in traditional Italian recipes and set in a cosy modern venue. Great job. Don't change. Keep up the good work.

I really enjoyed my meal at Popolo, the food was delicious. However we ordered 2 cocktails and a bottle of wine when ordering our food. 2 dishes arrived a good bit before any of our drinks arrived which was disappointing. Then 2 more dishes arrived at the same time as our first drinks. This was all in a very quick time period. I asked to please hold off on bringing more food for a while so that we could enjoy what we had but our last 2 dishes arrive so very soon still. I would have preferred to enjoy my food with the drinks I had chosen to accompany it.

Just very average food, although the octopus was cooked perfectly and that is not easy to do. The rest just fine, neither bad nor good. Honestly, we tried 3 plates and were so underimpressed by the food and atmostphere that we left and enjoyed our main course elsewhere...

I adore Popolo. I feel like it’s ‘my’ little secret...except I keep taking new people there! The menu is small which means every dish is prepared perfectly. It’s imaginative, seasonal, delicious. The team are passionate about what they do, but cool, and make you feel relaxed.
