Two of our four meals were good. Appetizers were good, wine delicious! Will give another chance.

Our plates were picked up without checking if we were done yet. The food was not hot. We felt rushed and the bill was 200.00 without alcohol for food that was mediocre.

Popi's just has a lot of character! The food is great...and always dependable. The antipasto never fails to satisfy. They have terrific pasta and the meat/fish standards and specials are great. Three of our party of four had never been there before, but now have declared it their "go to" place in South Philly.

The restaurant was terrific but the dining area is adjacent to their bar which becomes a dance floor on Friday nights so it was loud. The food was excellent. Don't pass up the cannoli.

Popi’s is our favorite restaurant. Everything was good other than being jammed in the corner of their banquet room. We were the only two person table in the room. All the other tables were like 10 to 9 people tables.

Every few months we have a get together at Popi's. I usually state in my reservation that I DO NOT WANT TO SIT in the bar area. I forgot to do that. The guy who sat us put us in the bar area. I asked if we could sit in the dining room which was EMPTY and he said no. Seriously there were 5 four tops available. Our reservations were for 6:30 p.m. and those tables did not get seated until after 8 o'clock. The reason we did not want to sit in the bar is because the Frank Sinatra singer was there and it makes it very difficult to talk to the people at your table.

There are 3 rooms at Popi's and there most definitely was another available table for 3 people. We had reservations. If you choose to eat there and want to talk to the people you are dining with, specify that your table not be in the bar area!

The food wasn’t the greatest but it was still delicious. The service was on point, always someone either the waitress or whoever checking up on us. They seated us exactly where I requested, and the wine selection was incredible. Only downside is I found a piece of hair on the outer ring of my plate, kind of in the sauce of the food I got, wasn't that big of a deal, everything else exceeded my expectations so I didn’t feel the need to tell them about it. Overall great food and service.

Warm, Friendly service. Nice Wine, cocktail & beer selection. Delicious, unpretentious, basic Italian eats. The Kids loved their chicken parmigiana , warm bread with herb infused olive oil - authentic South Philly. Save room for the homemade Cannoli's . We look forward to returning.

A true gem in the heart of South Philly and very close walking distance to all of the stadiums. The food is excellent Italian cuisine and the staff is very friendly. I have eaten dinner there twice and have been very pleased both times. The tables are far enough apart from each other that you don't feel cramped like many of the other restaurants in South Philly. You should definitely give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Bon Apetito!

My husband and I went to Popi's for NY Eve. We have been there for birthdays and anniversaries and always have a pleasant experience. Not this time. First the food was not good. We don't mind over paying for a holiday meal but you expect it to be good for over $45 a dinner. The service was just average and I assume it is due to the fact that 20% was added to every check no matter how big the party. We always tip at least 20% but would have appreciated the option for 2 people. We were told about no specials but heard another server telling another table. Just not good all around. The girls up front are always great though and they make you feel welcome. They were the best part of the night! We vowed to not return on a holiday... Adding gratuity for a table of 2 surely leads to lacking service... we go out a lot and we were very disappointed.
