Excellent food and drinks! House chianti is excellent, as are the bartender-recommended cocktails. We were socially distant, safe and warm and we look forward to returning.

Our experience was fabulous! The food was amazing. We lucked out with great weather in November for outdoor seating, and our waiter was wonderful. Was attentive and knew the menu well. He even was kind enough to take a picture for us at the end of our meal.

We requested an outdoor table but they gave us an indoor table. They also made us pay for the tiramisu when it was supposed to be free for the birthday occasion.

Really nice restaurant overall. Great ambience with the lights and decore. Food came out a little too quick although we were there for early dinner at 5:30. Not the most authentic Italian food, but still good. Wine was great as well right during happy hour. We left happy, typical cost for a Chicago dinner.

Thank You il Porcellino for another incredible dining experience. With covid on the rise we were nervous about dining out but wanted to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. They checked temperatures, enforced the mask policy and had seating spaced apart. We felt safe. The food was outstanding! We appreciate the celebratory things you did for us for our anniversary!

Staff and service was good but quality and taste of food was poor/fair. Not worth the $65 spent on food and drinks. Could have cooked a better homemade rigatoni alla vodka. Mela mule was weak. However, grilled calamari and stuffed mushrooms were good.
