Fantastic food great people
Great food with a homey feel. Friendly owner and staff. We very much enjoyed the food and the vibe .
My husband and I had the best Italian meal we have had since we have been back from Italy, 2 years ago! Not only was the food fabulous, we were able to sit for awhile and chat with the owner during our stay. He was so friendly and willing to take time to make us feel as if we were eating dinner at his home.
We would definitely return should we return to Philadelphia!
Thank you for the great experience!
Very good octopus appetizers. My mushroom pasta was very good. My husband’s bolenese not so good. Very friendly owner. We will be back.
Amazing amazing owner really enjoyable and quite
Great experience all around, food, service, desserts were amazing. DO be prepared that it is very loud tho.
It’s ok, just that
The menu on open table was not what the restaurant offered. The service was friendly, attentive and professional. The food we ordered was very well done. The staff and food turned what could have been a disaster into a very enjoyable evening.
Food was amazing and authentic. The owner and staff were incredibly welcoming! We’re already making plans to go back!
One of THE best "small house" Italian food places in the city. Period!
Lovely meal, enjoyed everything.
OUR WAITER COULD HAVE BEEN FRIENDLIER. FOOD IS GOOD BUT NOT GREAT.
The owner and staff at Procini were so friendly and made us feel at home right away! The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for our friends birthday. It’s my new favorite Italian restaurant in the city! Definitely recommend and will definitely be back!
Great food & excellent service! One of my absolute favorite Italian restaurants. They always have great specials and the owner & staff are always a pleasure!
Overall, the service and food was great. I was just sad that I had booked the five course experience package and didn’t get it. we
were told that it should be booked A few days in advance and not the night before.
Excellent. The food was very high quality with nice portions.
Great food and great owner. I come here every visit to phl!
Great friendly environment. Owners have pride in quality of food and overall experience.
Great food, great people, great service. BYOB. Will definitely go back
Great Food. Charming location. BYOB. But will never go back.
Clearly in violation of Covid protocol. Almost 100% occupancy. Busgirl was directed to next to the table. Togo order being filled next to our table. Owner greeted everyone with hugs and touching.
When we asked to make our order “ Togo” the owner asked we, we told him the 100% was making us uncomfortable.
We had the Chef’s five course tasting menu and it was very good. Exceptional value and it was a BYOB, which helped make the value even better. David was a great host / server and remained very active with all guest. It’s a very small, quaint restaurant with last of charm and made for a wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversary. If you’re looking for quiet and intimate this isn’t the place, however, the restaurant is friendly,active and very charming so it’s definitely worth a visit. We enjoyed all five courses. Highly recommend and will definitely return. Thank you Porcini.
Top tier food and service
The grilled calamari was not tasty at all - the tables are really close - the wait staff and kitchen staff as well as customers are all in a small space which isn't totally comfortable - the bread is just french bread from a grocery store -
The food was delicious and management was beyond gracious. The other party to my reservation couldn't make it and they accommodated me solo and were very attentive. Both the appetizer and main were delicious and I love the low key, casual atmosphere of the restaurant. I am looking forward to coming back again and will also give a recommendation to my friends who live locally as well.
Great food & great service! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The gnocchi appetizer special that we had needs to make a permanent appearance on the menu because it was a table favorite!
Amazing!! The food and service can’t be beat. We’ll definitely be back.
The food was phenomenal and the chef/owner/waiter made the experience! Thanks for having us :)
A pleasure to be back!
Wonderful service, delicious food, BYOB. Felt like a cozy neighborhood dining experience and we can’t wait to go back!
Food was delicious and the staff was so friendly!
I am never disappointed with my meal or the host
Server was great! Wish I could remember his name!!! Food was excellent. BYOB—We forgot to check! Fortunately, our server directed us to a liquor store about two blocks away so we ran out and picked up some bottles of wine. Overall a great night out. I highly recommend it.
Porcini was the best Italian place I have ever had. With amazing service and a quaint, quiet atmosphere, I would definitely recommend to a friend!
I’ve been here several times before - but this was likely the best meal yet here. The appetizers, entrees, and homemade desserts were all exceptional - especially impressive during COVID, when there were less customers allowed, yet the menu was still incredibly varied, and the ingredients were unbelievably fresh and unique.
This restaurant is really a Philadelphia treasure!
Staff was extremely friendly and welcoming and the occupied tables were very distanced. We had the grilled calamari, which was light and perfectly cooked. I had the cannelloni in a blush sauce, which was INCREDIBLE. He had the ravioli in a white sauce and used the bread to wipe his plate clean bc it was so delicious. The ricotta was amazingly fresh in both dishes. We shared tiramisu for dessert, which was melt-in-your-mouth perfect. I highly recommend- best dinner I can recall.
Steve is the man great damn food we will be going back soon
Wonderful chef’s 5 course tasting menu, paired to our wines!
It was great !!! We liked the food and service. Great place to go.
Third time I've been to this restaurant. Since the last time I went, the decor and ambience has been renovated and the inside looks beautiful. The food, as always, was spectacular. The owner is great and very accommodating. I would highly recommend.
