Food was great. Owner friendly and involved in day to day operations including seating patrons and opening difficult wine cork.
Always cozy and delicious.
Food was delicious. Small and cozy place. Sharing a meal with friends elevated the experience.
Fantastic food at this BYOB gem. On a weeknight, when the small room is not at peak capacity and loud, Porcini is a delight. Appetizers, including a specially-made pasta sampler, were delicious and my grouper fish special was terrific. Service was attentive, friendly and professional, prices are reasonable...this is one of the best restaurants in the City and its longevity bespeaks its success. Go once and you'll return many times.
Owner was arrogant. When we ask to move us the table next to window, because people left, he sad No. Then on the middle of our dinner he ask us to move that table. We felt like pushed around.
We went here before going to Helium. Small little bistro, and one table was too loud. Food was excellent, and staff could not be nicer. Chef came out to greet. Will go back
From Davids warm welcome into his tiny dining room to all of the delicious food, this has to be one of the best Philadelphia restaurants. The special artichokes with crispy breadcrumbs were outstanding. The homemade pasta is silky deliciousness. The veal was thin, tender, melt in your mouth. Service was well timed, friendly and helpful. Will be back again and again!
David is a great host
The people were great and had the best Raviolis ever!!! Loved Porcini’s restaurant.
The food is pretty good! The sauce of the pasta is very well made... you can really taste the different flavors
The food was good, the service was not. After we walked out, one of our friends was still in the bathroom. He heard the servers going on about how terrible we were. I found this very unacceptable as I believe we were a pleasant group. Will not be going back
Great menu and excellent food as always!
Food is fresh and delicious!
The appetizers were very good but the sauce on the spaghetti carbonara did not adhere to the pasta and had little flavor. Similarly, the sauce on the mushroom pappardelle was thin without much flavor, but the noodles were cooked to perfection. The spinach cannelloni was delicious.
Fun, energetic, delicious. Always a great evening.
Eating at Porcini was amazing. I went with my boyfriend on a date since it was restaurant week and every course made our mouths water. Even the bread and oil (with ricotta!) was exquisite. Workers were friendly, pleasant, and efficient. We will definitely be coming back!
Wonderful staff combined with delectable food=perfect dining experience. Can’t wait to go again
Restaurant Week is my least favorite time at Phila restaurants. The experience is never as good as it is on a regular evening. Usually the service is rushed due to the limited choices. This was not the case at Porcini. They did 4 courses instead of 3 which was appreciated. We waited an extremely long time between the 2nd course and the entree I enjoyed the lull but some in our party were not as pleased. Other smaller tables who came in long after us were finished before we were. Food was good. Interesting choices and everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I heard no complaints. The shrimp scampi appetizer was great. Others enjoyed the artichokes and the egg plant. The grouper was very good. Heard great things about the pork and the spinach/egg linguine. Desserts were a bit too heavy. Would have liked the Tara Missoue with something lighter
My favorite place in Philly. The Owners David and Steven make you feel like you are the most important people they serve. Food is amazing!
Had not been to Porcini for awhile and returned on Saturday evening with 2 out of town friends. Place was busy. Service was good, and food was better! We all ordered different dinners, and everyone was more than satisfied. Our friends loved the place and the fact that it was BYOB. Don't have that in Darien Conn.
We will be back soon, David.
Thanks for a great dinner and kudos to all your wait staff. It is amazing that they can move around so well when the restaurant is packed.
Excellent food and service...as usual. Great specials too.
Wow, small, but able to sit roughly 30 people. Cozy enough to make friends with fellow diners.
Loved this byob spot. We waited for a short time before we were seated.
Prices good, food fresh, fun atmosphere. Since it’s so small, you really should make a reservation.
Everything was absolutely delicious. Staff is friendly and patient. Very cozy. Have been many times and will be back.
Went with a group of friends for New Year's Eve dinner. They had an a la cart menu with some of their popular dishes. The food was delicious! Authentic Italian. We sat upstairs, which was nice and quiet. I also love that it is a BYO, so we brought our own wine. They kept our champagne chilled until we wanted it for dessert (also absolutely delicious). The only semi-negative thing I would note is the ambiance.. the restaurant seems just a little tired. But in my opinion, if the food is good and authentic I don't need to be in the most beautiful restaurant ever. Finally, our server was very nice and attentive while not rushing us, and the chef came up to wish us a Happy New Year and ask how the food was, which was nice. Oh, at least for NYE, it was cash only, which we knew before hand. There were 6 of us, we split 4 appetizers (including 2 burrata which could serve at least 3 people each), each of us got an entree and dessert and 3 americanos and it came to roughly $85 including tip, which I think is reasonable for the quality of food and for not feeling rushed on NYE.
We love Porcini! Very small, loud and fun! The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. The roasted artichokes are fabulous - as is the Chicken Milanese. Don't forget dessert! This has been one of our Philly BYO favorites for over 20 years and it never fails!
Food was great, testaurant is very confortable. David, the owner is very friendly & Rachel, the waitress, is very attentive. They had a pasta special thatcwas phenomenol, paoaradelle w/asparagus & prosciutto in a blush sauce. And the carbonara is a big hit w/our crew!!
We absolutely love this restaurant. The food is outstanding and the owner is so friendly and makes you feel right at home.
Quite possibly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. From the service to the food. everything was top notch. Fresh and thoughtfully prepared food. Truly a dining experience.
Amazing food. Friendly saff. Definitely a top 10 restaurant for me.
Great food. Great service.
Porcini is an amazing restaurant. If you have been traded you must give it a try when you’re in Philadelphia. Don’t be dissuaded by the exterior appearance because it’s what’s inside that counts. The food is amazing and the service excellent. It’s like eating in your Italian grandmother‘s kitchen. The specials are always excellent and a good bet if you’re not sure what to order, but everything on the menu is outstanding. I will definitely ask for suggestions from the staff. This is a BYOB so bring a bottle of wine and enjoy. Can’t say enough good things about this place.
The food is always good along with great service. It feels like family when you dine at Porcini.
Food and service were great as usual!
Porcini may be my favorite restaurant in Philly!! From the food to the service, they never disappoint!! We recently moved to Phoenix, AZ, and whenever we come back to Philadelphia for a visit we always make sure we have a date at Porcini!
Love this place!
My daughter and I celebrated her 22nd birthday. This is a great throwback restaurant. The room
Is cozy. The chef walked out to chat. Service was great. More importantly the food was terrific. Pasta dishes were memorable. Really worth trying!
The food at Porcini is very good. The tables are so very close to each other, akin to sardines in a can.
The noise level is terribly high.
Dave always does a great job for the front of the House (Host) and Steve for the back of the House (kitchen).
I always love the food and service as did my guests, commenting on how good everything tasted.
Wonderful as always!
Loud cold with door opening frequently . Service slow waitress made repeated mistakes with order. Did not refill water. Food bland ordinary flavorless. Would never go back.
Brought my mother to celebrate her 60th birthday. By far the best decision to celebrate a birthday. The service along with the delicious food will be remembered for years to come. Compliments to the chefs who prepared a wonderful cuisine, and our server who made our night truly one to remember. Thank you for you everything.
