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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
