Loved the salads. The meatballs appetizer was cold. Like all new restaurants they’re working out some bugs and struggling understaffed due to the pandemic. But I’ll go back because I think the menu is different and creative. Nice owner. Nice staff. Not expensive.

Popolari opened about early June and they’re still working out the kinks. The food and ambiance were great, but the service was slow. I’m sure they will figure out the service issues soon enough, but my advice is to be patient and the food is worth it!

Food was very, very good definitely will go back. However, it took well over an hour for my table to get more water and our appetizers. Entrees (pizzas) came out very quickly after that. I understand that they were very busy with diners and take-out orders and are understaffed like all restaurants currently so it did bother us that much. Hopefully management will realize that it is better to stop taking take-out orders and walk-ins instead of overwhelming their whole staff like that.

Food was excellent. Service was very attentive. Food was a bit slow, but we had appetizers and salads so that helps explain some of it. Atmosphere was great, staff were great. Food was great all-around.

Excellent food and friendly staff - the chef greeted each table and clearly cares about the food he's making and the people he's serving. We'll be back for sure!

This is a new place in Bloomfield and we decided to try it. It was simply put - amazing! The cube and decor is very casual and cool Italian. The food is delicious. The burrata prosciutto salad was so so fresh. The pastas were authentic and perfect. My husband ordered a burger against my advise (at an Italian place) and stated it was amongst the best he has had. Don’t miss the lemon sorbet which comes in a lemon at the end. Not to be missed. Loved loved the food and the ambiance of this place

This was an amazing experience. The food was incredible, the atmosphere was lively and beautiful, and the service was 5 stars. An elevated experience this neighborhood will truly appreciate. Must try.
