I am glad we booked as we would have struggled to get a good table for Sunday lunch. The staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was of a very high quality we had Squid, Salmon and we finished with the Pea Risotto. We had a very good table looking over the river. It was a great place to spend a... More

Bad Service, they cannot organise for food for 4 people to arrive together. 10 min after first meal and 20 min for the next 2. What joke. People go to restaurant to enjoy meal together not sit and wait . This when we booked for 6:00 pm. Not even the main rush hr. The food is also not that great.

My wife and went to this amazing place for dinner and were blown away by the location. Things only got better from there, the service and the view of the river and the city were stunning. We ordered our meals and were served quickly and the food was amazing. Thank you to all, we will be back next week!

Great riverside dining, fantastic vibe and the share meals is just a cool way to dine! Food is not over the top, yummy flavours and is cooked to perfection. What more can I say, the service was also friendly and prompt and if you are visiting Brisbane and want to get a real vibe of Queensland dining,this is the place... More

Amazing food, amazing outlook, fantastic service, reasonably priced. We would come here once a week if we lived closer. Only downfall is not enough Australian reds. I know it is an Italian restaurant but please please add more great Australian red wines.

Located overlooking river & city at Southbank, a large open airy casual restaurant, menu good, we ordered a pizza for lunch, while pricey it was also delicious. Our waiters were attentive & friendly, it wasn't busy & our lunch was a smooth enjoyable process. A lovely view with rivercats & ferries up & down the river. Have also been at... More

Booked for dinner for our anniversary on Saturday and we got one of the small tables right at the front overlooking the river. Absolutely great setting. We ordered Arancini, Ravioli, and Porchetta. The arancini were really nice, the ravioli was brilliant and the highlight, and the porchetta was ok but nothing special. Staff were friendly but not intrusive which was... More

Pasta is of high quality and so was the bread.Ichnusa on the menu a plus.Only downside was maybeee the porchetta,was great but lacked the herbs.Still an amazing meal.Price was also good at $264 for 4 people...

Saw there were a few mixed reviews for this restaurant but due to it's gorgeous location took a chance on Australia Day and am glad we did! Food was delicious especially the ravioli and although the food comes out sporadically (which they warn you about ) if you are not in a hurry then you are ok. Staff were friendly... More

I was with a couple of friends to Popolo a few months and I ordered a coke with no ice and no lemon. When drink arrived the waiter put it in front of me and loudly and rudely said "no ice no lemon". About 15 minutes later a group of 3 waiters were standing about 5 or 6 metres away... More
