Worse food ever for a high price. This was the third time we gave them a chance. Never again. Seafood dry and over cooked. Asked for bake potato they gave us runny mashed potatoes. The fried chicken was so dry I nearly choked even dunking...it in my husbands gravy that came with the mashed potatoes we did not order. I ordered onion rings with my oh so dry fried chicken. Nope, got more mashed potatoes. Paid extra for house salad. Lettuce was brown old. Woooow a waste of nearly 40 bucks.More

We came here with a group of 8 including 2 kids after Disney on Ice. We had reservations and were seated in a back room which was quieter. I was nervous because the place looks fancy with white table clothes but it is kid friendly...but could also serve as a special occasion place. Food was amazing and prices very reasonable. Pastas are $15-18 and meat/fish in the low $20s. Our bill for 6 adults and 2 kids with a bottle of wine was $300. Service was attentive- the food was a bit a slow to come out but it’s cooked fresh and homemade so I understand that it takes time. I would definitely go back after a game or event in the area.More

Tried Popi's for the first time. Pork cutlet was faked as veal in their veal dish.I had to track down a server for a drink after 15 minutes and the entrees came out before the salad. What more can I say?

Fabulous atmosphere, service, and food. Classy and not overly pricey. Got the seafood pasta special with gluten free pasta. Felt like I truly experienced the culture of Philly.

Reasonable prices, good service, delicious chicken pastine soup . Sandwiches ( Italian pork, sausage and also meatball) were super. Cannolis were good.

My husband and I recently ate at Popi's in South Philly for the first time. We had looked in advance for a place to get a decent meal before seeing Elton John at Wells Fargo Center. Fortunately, I'd made a reservation via internet two days...before our big night, because I knew there would be a lot of concert goers wanting to eat there. For those not familiar with the area, Popi's is just a few miles away from the stadiums, so the location is extremely close and convenient. Popi's is much larger than it looks from the outside. In addition to several dining rooms there are banquet rooms for large parties. My husband and I really loved the understated ambience and the food was delicious. Our waiter was extremely nice, prompt in getting whatever we requested, and very knowledgeable about the menu. We plan on returning when visiting Philly.More

Yesterday (Saturday, November 2) my family and I had a get-together after my uncle's funeral Mass at nearby St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church. The food and the service were very good. However, they should provide wheelchair for disabled customers. I have arthritis in my left...leg, and I had to have assistance from my family members to get to the back room where our get-together was at. They had no wheelchairs there. Otherwise, this is not a bad place to eat at. Keep up the good work Popi's.More

We came here for a rehearsal dinner. It is established place deep in South Philly. It was a typical catered event but the soup and pasta they served was very good. I had chicken piccata that was a little bland as it always is. Many...had the crab cakes and some enjoyed them while others didn't but they looked good. The servers were hard working and the event was fun. I would rate them above average. Can't say anything about value but it was a good event.More

Popi's is always a great value with high quality food. But because I travel into Philly alot it leads itself to eating alone. So a fun bar is a must, and they deliver!

We very much enjoyed the food. The restaurant was loud with lots of business which is a good indication however after a long day of travel we were hoping for a quiet dinner!
