Popolo

What they say

“Building a sustainable model to serve people with skill, love, and care, while creating experiences that will leave a lasting impression. A true labour of love, in which we have poured our craft and hearts at every detail; from the sourcing of local and sustainable produce, to the creativity of dishes inspired by the seasons with a lack of pretension.

Service is attentive yet informal, while the food is beautifully partnered with a select list of raw and biodynamic wines coming from small independent producers. At Popolo we all care for and take pride in what we do and how it affects the people around us. Staff are treated and made to feel the way we want our customers to feel: cared for and respected.”

Signature Dishes

Freshly rolled taglierini with handpicked Dorset crab and wild fennel; Sardinian bottarga paired with a glass of Aleatico bianco “Alter Alea” Lazio; and burnt honey panna cotta with pistachio advieh.

What we say

Foodies rave and rave about the flawlessly realized Italian classics, reimagined with Moorish, Spanish, and Middle-Eastern touches. But there is a beautiful simplicity at the heart of everything Jon Lawson does, as there is at the heart of all great things.
