Fantastic food, vibe, ambiance and music. This is my new favorite spot.
Busy night- could tell service was a bit off because of being possibly over sat. Wanted a birthday dessert sent out which was mentioned in notes with reservation but failed to receive one. Overall wasn’t too bad.
Hostess asked that I wait to be seated until my other guest was there. However, after that she proceeded to seat other people without their party being there.
loved everything - a teeny bit annoyed someone (not our server) dropped off our check before asking if we wanted anything else. overall, we had a wonderful meal with delicious salad and pasta, and the most delicious espresso martini for dessert. we will be back :)
Out standing food and service. Will go back next time in town.
Birthday celebration for our daughter. Cheerful, personable staff and an upbeat atmosphere! Complimentary dessert.
Great food, atmosphere, and service.
Absolutely love this place
It was very good. Even had several meatless entrees for the Lenten season. Tables might be a bit too close but otherwise a very comfy atmosphere. Loved the older music that they played. Our waiter was very helpful in selecting the perfect meal for us. Would love to come back!
great. il porcelino is always enjoyable.
Service was great,
Food was disappointing
Great place to eat and will always make a visit here when Im in Chicago.
Lovely service but food was nothing special. Truffle bread was ok, Brussels sprouts very good but served cold. Calamari sub par. Pasta dishes were tasty but, again, served barely warm.
I wouldn’t return.
The service was wonderful and most the food was great! My friends had the fettuccine alfredo and they said it was just okay. I had the cacio e pepe and it tasted great but the butter/oil started to seperate.
We went for our anniversary and our server was excellent. They surprised us with a glass of Prosecco & lemon cookies.
30th birthday dinner date
My husband and I went for dinner and it was great! Authentic Italian food, and a friendly and informed staff. Would definitely recommend!
Old-Italian vibes, great food, great service. Would recommend and go back. Happy hour deals were outstanding!
Excellent Italian food. Excellent service. Owner makes you feel like your family.
First hostess was going to seat us at a table we didn’t want, right at the entrance, we asked for a different table and she seemed perturbed, and wasn’t very friendly. Everyone else was great!!!
Delicious food with very friendly staff and a cute environment
I have been to il Porcellino a few times and the food never disappoints. The Tuscan cheese bread and crispy burrata are a must. Pasta is fresh and with all highest quality ingredients. The Italian donuts and pistachio gelato are also highly recommended. Cocktails are great, especially the negroni. My only criticism is the service is hit or miss. This visit our wait person was nice enough but talked so fast that we had no idea what she was saying. It was a busy night but it would have been nice to be able to ask a question and understand the answer.
Great, solid Italian family style restaurant. Nice ambiance for dinner but good for all occasions. Roasted pork shank special was outstanding.
Great service and the food was really good.
Nice ambience. I would absolutely come back.
Food was great and so was atmosphere!
