Went on a Saturday night - had reservations. Had a little issue with the reservation due to one couple being late; however, it did work out in the end. We had to wait a little longer than anticipated despite the fact that we had a reservation. We were given complimentary glasses of wine so Popis takes care of its customers! The food was delicious - every meal was a delight - and our server was over the top friendly - Vincenzio was his name.
On another note, the bar singer is very good; however, quite loud...to the point that tables in the bar area were open as people waited to be seated in the adjacent room so they could converse during their meal.
My fiancé and I had dinner on a Saturday night. We sat in the bar area to listen to the music, and I felt like I was being serenaded by Frank Sinatra! The DJ played music, but sang Sinatra songs in between. He is fabulous, and we enjoyed listening to him while we dined. Always a great dinner at Popi’s, they never disappoint. Their homemade gnocchi is the best I’ve ever had.
Very reliable place. Been there many times. Just wish they had lamb chops on lunch menu.
A great location near the stadiums for your pre-sport event meals!
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.
Always enjoyable, service and servers pleasant and attentive. Reliable menu that never disappoints.
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.
Terrific! I return every time I’m in Philly! Great service and food!
Never disappoints :)
The food and atmosphere were great. We stopped in for a quick bite before an event. Getting in and out was easy.
Everything is always awesome here!
Another great meal and great service. Popi's never disappoints!
The food and service was excellent. Best meal we've had in a long time
Love Popi’s, the food is always good and delicious. Always a good date spot. My wife and I love it here and recommend to all our friends.
Perfect enjoyable night. Would recommend to friends and family.
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!
Food is very good and the service is knowledgeable and friendly.
Our server, Paul, was excellent, and so were our meals. We are new to the neighborhood and live locally, and just love it there.
Excellent food. Had the chix Marsala
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.
The food was delicious and our server Vincenzo outstanding.
My wife and I went here before the Sixers game. The service was outstanding, the food delicious and it can accommodate groups of any size. I would definitely come here again.
Another fantastic meal at Popi’s one of our favorites. They treat you like a regular and give you the true south Philly experience.
Excellent food and friendly excellent service!
Service was great!!
Every time we go to Popi’s we love it. The Food and staff are Great and we Love dancing there on Friday night. Well worth the drive from Delaware.
great service, food was delicious and hot. plenty of parking. menu was diverse but not too big. daily specials were incredible.
Pasta was very good, steak was so so and over priced.
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!
Came out for a Sixers game, and had dinner here prior to the game. Food was great, service was outstanding and I highly recommend the lemon marscapone cake. Amazing! So glad we decided to eat here. I had read other good reviews on line.
Excellent food. Great service with a friendly and knowledgeable staff
Great atmosphere, fabulous food and wonderful service!
Again terrific food service a great place
Always good food, great for dinner with friends or a large party.
Delicious every time!! Service is always pleasant!
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.
