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 -

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.

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.

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.

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.
