First time here and did not disappoint. VIP table was very enjoyable. Service was phenomenal. Surprisingly four cheese tortellini was the best thing on the menu.

I thought it was about time to introduce my cousins to my favorite. They are serious foodies. After having the Brussels sprouts, Burrata lasagna and the Tuscan cheese bread, they are ready to declare Il Porcellino THEIR new favorite.

We were in town for the first time and this restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel. We got a recommendation from a friend. Everything about this place was great. We loved it! Our waiter was very good. Food was amazing. The waiter went out of his way to make it a wonderful experience for my birthday and made sure we got our in time to get to a show. House Chianti was very good!

Great food and service. Our waiter, I believe his name was Erik, was awesome and very friendly. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Chicago.

I appreciated how intimate this restaurant was. The low light setting and design was perfect for our evening out and the food was incredible!

My girlfriend and I came out for Valentines Day, the hostess was helpful and kind. Our server as well as bartender CJ was fantastic. He was informative and accommodating. The cocktails we had were flawless. The entrees we ordered were to die for and the dessert was delicious. We definitely plan to visit again. Thanks for such a great night!

A group of 10 of us went out on a Saturday night. Our reservations were for 6pm, And we didn’t leave until 9:00!!! Maybe they were short staffed or maybe our waiter had a lot of tables. We ordered drinks and appetizers right away. Got them, and then nothing for at least 30 minutes. Finally ordered dinner and a second round of drinks. Dinner came out fairly quick. From dinner on, the time just dragged. It took forever to get our bill as well.

But I will say the restaurant is really nice! Love the ambiance. The food is good too. I would like to go back for this reason.
