    First time customers. We were impressed with the food and service! The dining area was small but the fact that it wasn’t crowded at the time we went (early Tuesday evening) made for a nice quiet and cozy atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area looking for a good tasting Italian meal.

    The food and service were excellent. The food was definitely prepared with a lot of skill and care and the portions were great. It is a small space so it can get very loud. I would recommend to anyone who wants great Italian food

The chef came to our table, which was an extra special treat for us! Seriously if you’re looking for authentic Italian dishes… This is the place to be!! We are looking forward to our next visit !

    First time here! Terrific neighborhood place where we want to become regulars! Caesar salad very good and splittable. Our table had 3 different pastas.. all excellent. Bolognese, the one w porcini mushrooms, and the one w pancetta. Tiramisu homemade and excellent! David, the owner and host is high octane and seemed to know everyone in the room. BYOB is a very plus, although only one of our party imbibed. Highly recommend. Thank you for a very entertaining evening. BTW: if it’s your birthday the lights are turned off and the entire room sings Happy Birthday!

    David never seems to fail when it comes to a complete dining experience. We always dine at Porcini when we visit Philadelphia, and we are never disappointed. We have learned to follow his suggestions on menu choices, and look forward to our next trip to the city.
