We had a reservation for a month or so reserved on Opentable for our 42nd wedding anniversary and nobody even said happy anniversary. The wine was $60 a bottle, but you can buy the exact same vintage and bottle for $18 at Total Wine. The service was too busy, too many people wandering around touching things in our opinion. Spinach and misto salads were excellent! Steak very good. Too expensive for the experience in our opinion.

My husband and I loved our anniversary dinner on the patio of Porcini! Our server was incredible, she gave wonderful wine recommendations, and we loved the crab cakes! The patio was so serene, and we loved our entrees.

Excellent! Only complaint was they would not allow outside cake and said it was health dept rule. We have been to at least 3 other upscale places in last 6 months and ALL allowed celebration deserts brought in. However. Still excellent!

We love this place! Can’t believe we have lived in L’ville for almost 6 years and just discovered Porcini’s. We have been twice in the last month. We will be back as often as possible.

The food was delicious. One of the best Caesar salads I’ve had and delicious tiramisu. The atmosphere was nice, quiet, and romantic. The service was good. Now for the bad part. They were out of the first 2 bottles of wine we tried to order, so we had to pick a more expensive wine than we were looking for. Also, there were 2 price discrepancies from the menu to the check. The entrees we ordered were each $2 more than the price listed on the menu. So due to the negatives I won’t be rushing back, there’s just too many other places to go, but I do want try again at some point.

Excellent food execution. Fillet and gnocchi and shrimp linguine were amazing.Wine selection had many great choices. Ambience is pleasant intimate and quiet. Our server seemed a little off however. Spilling wine. Not able to remember the specials. But the server was very nice. Overall enjoyed the dinner and will return.

Charming setting. Food well prepared and attractive on the plate. All our pasta meals and salads were very good.

Service was okay, I think we had a newer waiter. Polite. But did not stop by as often as we would like.
