Great food, warm plates for al fresco dining is a necessity which they did well. Highly attentive service as a team function - not single table single waiter. Well done.

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.

We had a voucher that had not been processes prior to arrival and that became an issue but was eventually rectified. We ordered a seafood tower $159. The sparkling water requested came as still water. The muscles were tuff but tasty. The remainder of the seafood was excellent, filling and special.

Elio's is simply the best authentic Italian in Brisbane. The food is prepared and served with love, in a cosy unassuming suburban restaurant. It is like being welcomed into someone's home, dad jokes and all. Servings are massive - order the main size pasta at your peril. (Or call it meal prepping and enjoy lunch for the next few days.) Your host, Paul, is a salt of the earth gentleman whose care and mentorship of his lovely young staff is a rare thing in the hospitality industry today. Go. You won't regret it.
