Used Popi's for a wedding rehearsal dinner for 33 people. We had a private room with a six table setup and a private bar. Service was excellent and food was very good. We had a choice of crab cakes or stuffed chicken. Everyone seemed happy with the food. I had the crab cakes and they were very good. The room... More

The food is delicious and the atmosphere is awesome! They have live entertainment on weekends. I literally thought they were playing a Sinatra CD the guy was SO good! Try the Penne Al A Vodka, it's to die for!

Been going there for years, usually for lunch as I work nearby but occasionally for dinner. Great Italian food. The lunch menu isn't that big but it covers all the traditional Italian favorites nicely. The food is reasonably priced and they have a good selection of alcohol. Indoor or outdoor table seating with a free parking lot next door. I... More

Our business had dinner in here one night and were extremely happy with the service and food. Needless to say, I don't think there was anything left on everyone's plates. The staff is fun and courteous. I had the lobster ravioli and it was amazing. The ambience had an appearance of fine dining but casual wear is appropriate.

Went at 9pm on a Saturday night - choose to sit outside. Staff was prompt and excellent. Had braised asparagus and Chicken Alexander. Both of which were well prepared, good presentation and tasty. My friend had fried Calamari which was unsatisfactory - undercooked. When the waiting staff noticed that it was uneaten they immediately removed any charges for it from... More

My family loves Popi's. The food and service are always top notch. My old fashioned and champagne were perfect. I absolutely loved the brucheta appetizer. You can't go wrong with Popi salad. The veal di Mare was perfectly prepared. The tiramisu was lovely and my cappuccino was stupendous. A great meal and will return.

When the Marriott airport restaurant had a wait (yes, can you believe it) on a Monday night, a coworker and I took Uber to this terrific little restaurant nearby. I had linguini and clams, which were maybe the best I’ve ever eaten. The service was prompt and the martinis iced-cold and delicious. Two of us had a drink, shared an... More

This restaurant came recommended by my sister. It's located close to the stadiums in Philadelphia and we were looking for a dinner spot pre-game. The food was delicious. Loved their red sauce. A little pricy. Service was good.
