My companion suggested Popolo for dinner the other night. I love Bellows Falls, so that is what we did. A lively, bustling place. Excellent service. Victoria was ebullient, funny, helpful. Ah, but the food. The sourdough bread with olive oil was a a good start....More

We were thrilled to find this restaurant with a gourmet flair in this small town, I enjoyed the shrimp and polenta. My friend enjoyed the pasta. I would highly recommend.

We went to Popolo one night and the specials were so good, we got their specials pizza for take-out the next night! Love the atmosphere and the staff-they're always friendly and warm. The food never disappoints!

As you walk through the door the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff helpful and friendly. The food... try everything! No regrets. They were out of my side and chef chose something I feel was better. Desert is a must. Thank you Popolo.

Great service and food. Highly recommend. It’s my favorite local hotspot, but admittedly the choices for places to eat are highly limited. But always go here when visiting family and friends in the area.
