Take a short stroll down the iconic South Bank promenade and arrive in your own little slice of the Italian Riviera when you share a meal at Popolo Italian Kitchen & Bar. Tucked away in the idyllic surrounds of Brisbane’s River Quay is our spacious, yet intimate dining destination dedicated to delivering elegant shared dining.

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.

Grab a drink at the bar and nestle into the comfortable and contemporary venue as you soak up the spectacular views and vibrant atmosphere of one of the best Italian restaurant Brisbane has to offer.

Linger over a lazy long lunch or an intimate dinner with friends as you sample a selection of sumptuous Italian delicacies such as crispy wood-fired pizzas and our infamous slow-roasted Gippsland porchetta.
