The Sansome brothers bring Porcini's to life and keep it that way all evening! A favorite and welcoming BYOB with outstanding food.

My favorite place, food was delicious. They have this yummy garlic bread that didn’t make the valentines menu but did make it to my table. I was happy that they accommodated my craving.. you guys always do an amazing job cooking.. love porcini, if you haven’t been at least one time you definitely are missing out.. don’t forget BYOB

We went for Valentines Day dinner, so it was busy and had a special menu. Arrived on time for our reservation and waited under half an hour to be seated. It was great, we plan to go back.

We went on Valentines day, so naturally the restaurant was packed. A smaller restaurant but the staff did a nice job balancing waiting patrons and a full table list. Fixed menu with options and everything we ordered was delicious. Staff was friendly and working hard to keep things moving, we were in-and-out in under 90 mins. We saw a couple of tables flag down servers but to be expected on such a busy night. Outside of Valentines Day, this place is 5* all the way around. We will definitely be going back.

The food here is incredible and fresh. You can tell that everything is made with care and a love of food. The owner, waitress and chef were extremely knowledgable about where everything came from--the eggs are locally sourced and the ricotta is from Italy! The management was regularly interacting with customers too which was nice.

Highly recommend the dessert--the cannoli was amazing.

Food was excellent but a limited menu. It's a nice Italian spot but a bit cramped for table space.

Always awesome... small, can be noisy if all tables filled but food, staff, and ambiance are the best. A Philly treasure.
