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!

Not utensils were given. My date had to ask for a fork and he ate the appetizer with his hands.
Waiter was not friendly.

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.

The food was generally good but my Salmon came out raw and there was a strange piece of butter on the side of my appetizer plate. The staff were very friendly though.

First time dining out for my partner's birthday during Center City Restaurant Week. For $35.00 per person we thought to give it a try. Glad we did!

Delicious Italian food, fun ambiance, and the staff surprised the birthday boy with everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to him with a candled dessert.

Will definitely try Porcini again.

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!

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.

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.

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 -
