Super delicious food and really sweet waitress! Would recommend.
Service was amazing and food was even better. Definitely recommend the garlic bread.
Food was amazing! The server was really nice and service was fast! Very nice place too
I am in love I want to die someday at my high ton table over a bowl of Ravioli and a lovely glass of their rich Cabernet. 5 stars, full hearts, full bellies, full send. Bellissimo!
Very good spot!
Enjoyed happy hour, the warm and fresh sour dough bread with the garlic butter is the BEST in Chicago!!! Also all the food selections are delicious, however the lasagna is AMAZING!!! Must have!!!
My Girls and I came here and we loved every bit of it
We wowed at the how delicious the food was all of it
We had dinner entrees as well but we didn’t take a picture my apologies but you won’t be disappointed everything was spot on and our waitress which was the bar tender for the night was so on point all while multitasking
Really enjoyed Il Porcellino! The service and atmosphere were great. The staff was friendly and taking precautions for Covid. I'd recommend eating here and I would definitely dine here again.
Amazing food, as always! The Asiago cream ravioli was to die for! House wine is a must. YUM
Excellent experience, and they accommodate food allergies with custom meals:)
My first time dining at Il Porcellino and it was amazing! Very nice ambiance and friendly staff. Our server was very personable and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. I had the caesar salad and filet; it tasted amazing. For dessert I ordered the tiramisu. It was the best I ever had! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
I would suggest this beautiful place over and over again. I bring everyone that comes to town to this restaurant and I will keep doing this. Every time I go I am more surprised by the atmosphere and food.
It was my first time using opentable to make last minute reservation for my wife’s birthday, I had made reservations for 2 and then came to find out my brother and sister in law were joining us as well. I called the restaurant and spoke with AJ, general manager. He was very accommodating with my request of having 4 guests. When we arrived at the restaurant our high top seating was upgraded to a booth - thank you Aj for your assistance & accommodations.
The food was outstanding with the Lasagna being some of the best I have ever had. Our servers were very helpful and offer us help whenever we asked for some. Portions were very good size and we where able to share with our 9 year old was said he was not that hungry but was and we still had leftovers!!! You could tell everything was freshly made. Would highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience at il Porcellino! The food, staff, and atmosphere was amazing. We definitely can’t wait to return soon!
Visiting from DC, the food was soooo good. My boyfriend and I both ordered the Roasted Chicken Penne except I substituted mine with shrimp instead. Immaculate. The drinks were equally good and service was awesome. Will definitely be back.
Service and food was outstanding! I had their special which was the crab pasta— AMAZING. Our waiter was very attentive and personable. Will definitely be visiting again!
We were so happy with our visit. The food was awesome. The service was fantastic. We left happy and very full!
Literally best itailian food I have ever had!!! Great place great service and great atmosphere
Fantastic experience. Great service, ambiance, Motown music playing and delicious food!
Thanks for the nice review Shayda!
It was really good. The chicken Marsala was great.
Great food! Fun atmosphere. Great place to share dishes. Yummy!
We really are glad to be back since it is one of our favorite haunts. Wish you still had the bread with clams!
Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere, and great service!! I definitely recommend this place.
Beautiful atmosphere and lighting, great service. Food was good, pricier than I normally spend on pasta, but it was our anniversary so we splurged.
Delicious. Great atmosphere. Loved the music.
It was wonderful
Hands down theee best Italian food I’ve ever had! Service was great, drinks were great, appetizer and dinner was absolutely delicious! Highly recommended when traveling to Chicago!
Amazing! Words cannot describe our wonderful experience we had. We were seated in the best seat in the house since we were on a date (this was so thoughtful). Our server was so knowledgeable and explained the menu and recommended the best dishes. The ambiance was so romantic. We will definitely return on our next trip to chicago.
We are SO thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed. Thank you!
Wonderful meal ! Great service really enjoyed first time here.
Our dinner was fabulous! Everything about the entire meal was just perfect. From the service to the food to the music. This restaurant is a must if you are looking for excellent service and amazing food! The atmosphere was casual and relaxing. Definitely will go back!
My mom’s birthday.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed moms birthday celebration.
Always a great atmosphere and good food. The servers are quick and attentive. And the ambiance is on point
We are so happy to hear you have enjoyed your previous visits with us. Thank you!
Upon arrival, I realized that this place used to be the Paris Club restaurant. The ambience now is a mishmosh of styles. Old Pump Room type images in one corner; odd lamps in the main seating area; a couple of menu items from the former Scoozi! and 50's music booming out of the speakers with a - sort-of - plaid table cloth, Italian theme. Just peculiar.
The service was pretty good - although our server did decide to go home in the middle of service. I mean okay, so you want to go home but now who am I tipping? I still left 20% plus the 5% upcharge for covid added to the bill.
It was 9pm and the place was starting to empty out. It felt - strange. As if we were expected to finish up and get out. In Chicago?! Covid has made everything feel uncomfortable and one still gets the impression that although the service was okay, they still think they're doing you a favor by them coming into work.
I understood from someone who's allegedly supposed to know, that Molly Melman runs this place. The comment was that she didn't do a good job when she tried her hand at Bub City and that she's not doing a good job here. Online it says that the place is run by R.J., Jerrod and Molly. Given that this info came from a former LEYE employee (not known to me before that evening) the comment was interesting but may not be fair. I only included it because the operation is markedly different and far less cohesive than other LEYE operations.
Overall - good food, okay service, strange ambiance. Can't say I'd ever come back. Just too many other really good LEYE restaurants out there to choose from.
Our server, Alec, was excellent. And, the gnocci topnotch. Thank you. Peace, nick popovich
Thanks for the kind words about Alec. He is one of the best! The gnocchi is a brand new item on our menu, thank you for sharing your great feedback.
Love this place! The food is delicious, and the service was great.
We are so happy to hear. Thank you for taking the time.
The gluten free pasta is delicious. Great service and good date place
The staff was so friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
We can not wait to have you back, thanks Ashley!
