Popolo (Sydney)

A cool take on hot Italian

by Piero!

I admit – I am massively positively biased towards this place, as it is heavily inspired by my home island, Sardinia. Popolo is a place I love to go back to. Also, I like the fact that it is removed from the main areas (though it is conveniently close), so it feels like a find when you get there.

The restaurant is cool, with soft low lights and an intimate feel. The atmosphere is relaxed yet vibrant – probably because of the mix of table and bar dining it feels like this place is happening without being overwhelming or chaotic. The food is delicious and whilst from a first glance the menu might look traditionally and unimaginatively Italian (ravioli, pasta, pizzas, buffalo mozzarella, etc), each dish is a modern (often fusion) take on each of the well known flavours and combinations of my homeland.

My favourites include the burrata (think buffalo mozzarella to the power of ten) as a starter, and rabbit ragu pasta as a main. The wine list is extensive and caters for all budgets.

If you are visiting Sydney and want to impress your travelling companions with a ‘local find’ check Popolo out – you will not regret it.

Another fantastic nearby Italian option is A Tavola.
