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.

Another wonderful meal here on a quiet Friday night. As at the last visit, I had the blue cheese salad, fresh and delicious. I had the large 'simple' i.e. four cheese pizza with extra mushrooms, really an interesting cheese taste, tangy and complex (I realize...More
