    Food was disappointing- we were given a restaurant week menu and looking back I am sorry I didn’t ask for a regular menu. Artichoke appetizer was from a jar- not the fresh artichokes like they serve in Italy. Entree was just ok- it didn’t have much taste. Seats were by the front door despite making a reservation a month ago. There were two people for dinner and yet we’d were served one dessert. Disappointed

    The small, quaint presumably family owned restaurant really had charm, everyone was very kind and welcoming all the way around. The place is BYOB and the food was definitely worth the wait, you could tell it was homemade. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good Italian meal.

    Food was great, we went as part of restaurant week and really enjoyed the offerings they had. The owners are from my hometown and ended up sitting down and chatting with us for quite some time. Incredibly friendly staff, good food, quaint space. Will definitely be back!

    We visited during restaurant week so chose from the special menu. There were plenty of good choices. I selected the pork medallions in mustard-fruit sauce, and they were wonderful So tender! My partner's pasta was excellent as well. The dessert of tiramisu and chocolate mousse were just right. Small dining room so we ate early (5:30) to avoid crowding. Do visit.

    Porcini's always has great food antegrade atmosphere. The brothers come out and talked all the customers and make you feel it home and really enhances the meal. The waitress was fantastic. It is small and always crowded so there is a little bit of noise but it is part of the atmosphere.

    We are (4 of us) long-time patrons brother-sister and spouses. Owners just love to serve great food and laugh with the customers. This is a very abridged version of the wonderful evening we had, which was coincidentally the third time we had been there in 10 days.

    Delicious food and excellent service. This was a busy, energetic night at Porcini. We were a party of 3 and could barely have a conversation. It was very loud. The ceilings are low and the rooms are small. I would go again but probably not on the weekend.

    Outstanding Italian cuisine restaurant with a friendly neighborhood feeling. Prosciutto and arugula salad can be shared by 2. Homemade pastas and sauce light but filling. Porcini is BYOB. Restaurant small so noise level rises as main dining area fills up. Plan on returning very soon.

    Wonderful experience for our first time. The apps were great and we each had one of the specials for dinner. The striped bass and homemade ravioli were both outstanding! Service was top notch and desserts/espresso were the absolute perfect ending to a delicious evening. Looking forward to our next visit!!!
