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.
Loved the good, atmosphere and the music was great!
I always have a great time here. Solid food and service! Look forward to coming back very soon!
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!
I took my 10 year old daughter out for a special night after our father-daughter dance fo her school. She had good food and very good time. The staff was great. My daughter and me both had a wonderful evening. Thank you.
It was great.
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.
It was great, I celebrated by anniversary on Valentines Day instead of the day before so I knocked two birds with one stone. The food was fantastic and he waitress was just the best!
I appreciated how intimate this restaurant was. The low light setting and design was perfect for our evening out and the food was incredible!
Great place for a classic Italian meal
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!
Wonderful entrees and the desserts are to die for.
Wonderful food and great service!
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.
One of my wife and my favorite places, never disappoints. The staff is so nice and helpful, they make it such a great experience. The food is so delicious, never had a bad meal here!!! We keep coming back.
I just want to thank everyone that works there. I will be coming back forever. Not only is the food fantastic the people that work there are so friendly and really take care of you. Words can not describe the place, if I could live there I would. I can not wait to go back. Thank you again for such a wonderful time.
This was our first time and the food was great. The atmosphere was perfect. The crispy Brussels sprouts were AMAZING! I can't wait to go back!
Very nice we all enjoyed the food and decor. Nice bar area.
Food was great. Music in restaurant was a little loud.
SO incredibly disappointed with the service I had at this restaurant. As a long-term, loyal Lettuce Entertain You customer, I could not believe the horrible service I received planning a large group dinner. Two days before a large group dinner I scheduled months in advance, the restaurant called for the 5th+ time to "confirm" and share that we suddenly had to have a set family-style menu, set price, were prohibited from ordering off the restaurant week or normal menu, and would be charged an event fee for having a party larger than 9. Wish they would have told me this when I made the original reservation!!! They were not accommodating and did not work to meet a compromise at all, not even for ONE group meal considering it was their fault with the lack of communication, even after speaking with several managers.
Celebrated our son's 22nd. The staff was prepared, knew it was his birthday from my Open Table reservation. Attentive. Good at recommending menu items. Food was very good.
Really enjoyed the music and atmosphere here. Good food, portions were small though (oddly our portions seemed smaller than other tables, even the wine serving it was weird). Despite this I would definitely go again really fun spot.
Was very pleased with our dining experience at Il Porcellini. The garlic cheese bread was outstanding and probably the best I've ever had. The portion sizes were perfect and their tomato sauce exceeded my expectations. Can't wait to go back to try more items on their menu! We did not go home hungry!
The music was somewhat loud (Speaker right above us). When asked the management turned it down a bit. Everything else was wonderful! We will definitely go back (but sit away from the music speakers). :0)
The food at il Porcellino was absolutely delicious and the service incredible! I would definitely recommend if you're looking for an authentic Italian restaurant with great food.
Excellent food. So many choices on the menu.
Everything we had was wonderful, but the thing we liked best was the enthusiastic/passionate manager who came over to our table when we were seated and told us about the menu and how everything had evolved over time. Our waiter was also extremely well-versed in preparation/ingredients of everything on the menu, and was also helpful in selecting wine and cocktails.
Our only knocks were that some of the portions were underwhelming, like the tuna carpaccio and the gnochi, but everything else was a decent value. The place was extremely busy, and very loud as a result.
Great food and wonderful service
It's a throwback to old school Italian joints complete with red check tablecloths and chianti in baskets. The food isn't too exciting , but service and decor are nice.
