My third time at Popi's and I was a little let down. The antipasta plate was ok, some of the meats weren't very fresh. Our bread arrived sometime after our appetizer which was annoying. The oil dip for the bread was loaded with chopped onion and tomato which made it more like a salsa -- not what I was looking forward to. I ordered crab cakes and was very disappointed. Mostly filler and dry and just blah.
Our waiter was great, our hostess was great. The wine was great. The location is perfect for pre-show at the Wells Fargo Center. Parking was good.
Found Popi's online somehow and glad that I did! Great menu choices for my whole family. Service was superb. We has to rush our order a little due to a concert later in the evening. Our server knew just how to fit the meal in (even an appetizer) without us feeling rushed. I actually will go back again soon when I am in the area to enjoy the atmosphere (and the wine) at a little more slower pace. The calamari app was perfectly seasoned and tender. Our meals were great.
Nice restaurant in a nice neighborhood in South Philly with plenty of parking. Within walking distance of the stadiums. Ordered a Popi salad and a Penne Bolognese and both were very good. Restaurant is a little loud but the tables are far enough apart that you don't feel too distracted by other conversations. The staff is friendly and I would definitely go back again and that is the best compliment I can give to Popi's!
Love this spot. I have been her countless times. Great food wonderful chef. My only complaint was my server...a bit on the sarcastic side and appeared disinterested asked for a drink stayed he would be back momentarily however 20 minutes later nothing. This is not a reflection on any other staff person as i have dealt wirh all of them and they were awesome
Had a great meal and finished the night dancing in the bar area . Looking forward to returning.
Great food and service, decent wine list, comfortable surroundings, great desserts
Never a disappointment...lover the foid...and the staff.....always a pleasure!!!!
I took a friend and my cousin out to dinner before a show at the Wells Fargo Center. The menu selections were good, the specials were very special, and the drinks were delicious.
The staff were very responsive to our needs and very welcoming.
We all had a wonderful time
Although I thought it was a little expensive considering the area the food was wonderful! Would highly recommend the pastas and veal.
This was the first time there wont be returning the food was mediocre, te service was lousy
Great quick South Philly dining before a Flyers game! Delicious dinner!
Delicious dinner! Great waiter and staff! Wonderful veal.
Old school Italian with Sinatra playing in the background. Perfect for a quick dinner before the Flyers game. The food is always authentic and very good. Not quite as good as grandma's but nobody is.
Loved it - felt line I was in thr 1950's. Will definitely return soon!!
