Like eating at a good friend’s house…if the friend cooks like your Italian grandmother. Excellent!

Porcini is a small Italian BYOB with great food and very personal service. The team of four that run the place does a great job of moving a lot of customers through and despite the close quarters, the place is surprisingly quiet. The homemade pasta and the creative seasoning make the meal memorable - while hard to do - save room for dessert ...

The food was good. The hygiene was appalling. There were two men serving in the dining area, which is very small, so you can see everything. One was a waiter, the other seemed to be a manager/waiter. Within a few minutes of being seated, I watched the waiter wipe his nose with his bare hand multiple times, and serve plates immediately after (you can see the plates be handed to him by the kitchen). He then proceeded to cough directly into his hand, again, just before serving plates. I was glad that it would be the manager serving our table. Then, I watched the manager cough STRONGLY into his hand multiple times... and he too, served plates directly afterward. (Who still coughs into their hands?) Then, to top it all off, the waiter went to the tablet on the front desk (everything is within feet of each other in this dining area) to pull something up on the screen... and (I kid you not) then sucked the tips of his fingers as if he had just finished some chicken wings and... you guessed it, came over to clear our table and touched everything including our silverware (placing it back on the table for our use). I would have been horrified pre-covid at what I watched here, let alone now. It's a shame, because the food was good and the manager was very personable and a good host. Just would not recommend that this is a safe place to eat.

We have been going to Porcini for years, often to celebrate. Last time we came to celebrate our 50th. That night, we co-celebrated purely by chance with another couple celebrating their 52nd and a young woman celebrating her birthday. Such a joyous occasion!

I really liked our visit to Porcini for restaurant week! The staff was very inviting, and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend. It is a cozy space so it can get a little loud, but it was still a very fun place with delicious food. Definitely recommended.
