Such a delicious meal, drinks and service. Really loved this place and highly recommend.
Love the cozy and fun atmosphere, excellent service, and the food is excellent at a good price.
My husband and I went here on our honeymoon in Chicago. We will definitely be coming back! The food was delicious, the atmosphere so charming and the service amazing! Our server Sammy N was so attentive and friendly. For the quality of Italian food, the price was very affordable! Highly recommend!
Really nice find! Came in from the burbs for my husband’s birthday including our two teenagers. Everyone loved Il Porcellino. Great food, great atmosphere, great price.
Great atmosphere food and wine! Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for the recommendation.
The food was great, the service was even better. Alec our waiter did an exceptional job. Everything sounded so good so we just kept ordering and every dish was phenomenal. We are definitely coming back!
Really good food. Definitely try the garlic bread! Our server was really good and gave good recommendations.
Thank you for the kind words!
This is not the il Porcellino that we came to know and love. They no longer give complimentary appetizer bites at the beginning of the meal. Our past favorite, brussel sprouts, is a completely different dish. Nothing was the quality a couple years ago. Will not be going back.
Amazing food, service and ambiance! I will return!
Not a place to go for a special occasion as they just give you a free dessert with a candle in it. Food was absolutely amazing though and service was great!
Thank you for celebrating your special occasion with us, we appreciate it.
This is a great place to have dinner. It was pretty full, but didn't take long for food to come out of the kitchen. The staff was attentive and gave good recommendations. They even gave us a little Prosecco when they saw it was an anniversary dinner.
The food was delicious!
Was everything we could have hoped for on our trip to Chicago.
Very good service. Server was knowledgeable and very helpful. Food was all well prepared.
We were celebrating a friends birthday and pregnancy announcement! Everyone made us feel so warm and welcomed. No complaints! 11/10 would dine here again!
Service was great, and the food and drinks were great on the whole. The tiramisu was good but not the best we’ve ever had. It seemed a bit heavier than we prefer. But it was still good.
This restaurant is probably relying on its past as a provider of good food. It certainly has a great atmosphere but its food left much to be desired. It was not bad; it just was not great. I guess one can sum up their value on food and freshness with one example of the night; Parmesan Cheese in a jar as opposed to fresh grated cheese. C'mon man.
I always stop here for dinner when I’m in town. The ambience is so nice and the food is always amazing. I had the salmon piccata and burrata appetizer. I’ve never had a bad meal or experience here.
We had a great time at il Porcellino. They were flexible to accommodate our party of 8 people and the food was excellent. Love this restaurant.
Great food.The stuffed mushrooms,Chicken Parmesan.Great service.Great value.A lot of space between tables not a lot of noise in a crowded room.Overall great experience.
A favorite of ours and all around wonderful restaurant.
This is one of my favorite spots in Chicago. It never disappoints!
We had a great experience at ail Porcellino. The burrata lasagna was delicious! One of our best meals in Chicago.
Phenomenal experience as always!
This restaurant is one of the great ones in the great city of Chicago. The staff are some of the best in ANY restaurant in the country. Our entire meal was outstanding. We would eat anything on the menu.
Ben your words are powerful. Thank you so so so much.
Their specialty lasagna was delicious and we had a wonderful table in the front window!
Everything was amazing, food was phenomenal and my entree was gluten free and you would never know
The staff was great and the food was outstanding!
Great ambiance. Loved the food, the service and great 50s motown music play track. Our dishes: Whole garlic bread, Ravioli al forna, chicken Marsala and roast chicken penne Alfredo.
The food was fantastic! We brought our 2 year old daughter and we were able to order her a side of rigatoni with marinara and she loved it! We were able to enjoy 30 minutes of the happy hour ($6 glasses of wine, $4 Peroni beers). The ambiance of this restaurant is great and I love the oldies tunes. Service was outstanding as well. We will definitely be back!
Dinner was great! It was my birthday yesterday, and my boyfriend surprised me with dinner here. The service was great, food was delicious, and we had a great time.
Really welcoming environment from the moment I stepped into the restaurant. Very warm hosts, attentive staff and food was great as is the Lettuce tradition. I hear it is popular among tourists as well....as it should be!
Amazing food and service definitely will be back again !!
Amazing meal as well as service. Axle was our server, knew the menu well. I opted for the burrata lasagna which was the best lasagna I have ever had. My wife went eggplant parm which was equally as amazing.
For apps we had the tuna one as well as the grilled calamari. Both were great.
Seemed very reasonably priced for what you get. We’ll definitely be back on our next trip.
Great service, fantastic food, highly recommend!
The food was tasteful, the music was fun but at a reasonable volume and the service was great. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice Italian meal and a good place to sit and talk with ease.
Dined for a birthday celebration. Had the most awful cocktail (lol), but everything else was great.
Wonderful service and delicious food! My family and I had such a great time celebrating my brother’s birthday!
Went for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and such a great time! Highly recommend the House Chianti, the Lemon Pesto gnocchi and the rigatoni alla vodka is to die for!
