In Italian, the word popolano means popular or of the people, which describes our award-winning, family owned restaurant to a T. On any given night, you'll see everyone from beach-going vacationers to businessmen to sweethearts to the local Little League team.
A rehabbed circa- 1870's mansion in the heart of downtown Chesterton, Popolanos offers something for everyone at reasonable prices. Complete with large, sheltering trees, an outdoor dining patio, the restaurant reflects the intimate charm of an Italian Bistro. The eclectic menu features excellent made-to-order pizzas, creative pastas and a wide selection from sandwiches to steak.
