Popolo is a small independent restaurant in the heart of shoreditch, cooking sharing plates and serving low intervention wines.

What we cook

Italian inspired sharing plates with a moorish twist.

We source the best. Fruits of the sea, seasonal vegetables, artisan produce and obsessive pasta making.

What we pour

We pour natural and low intervention wines. Small producers, authenticity and a lot of character.

How it works

We have a downstairs bar overlooking our open kitchen.

We have tables upstairs and an additional window bar overlooking Rivington street.

We take online reservations online for groups up to 4 or you can call the restaurant to discuss availabily for groups max 5 people

Owing to size and current social distancing guidlines we have a small limited capacity and have a cancelation fee of £25 per person for less than 6 hours notice.
