The food was very good and the service was too. The only problem was our 5:30 pm reservation. We arrived at 5:15 pm and the valet said the restaurant was not open. We had to wait outside until just after 5:30, which I thought was a little unusual....we would have been much more comfortable at the bar!!
Food was just ok, not as ususal. Service was not great, could be because we were there after 8:30 but just was not consistent as always
The first time we dined here was a weekday other than Friday and our server was very attentive and friendly. On this visit, a Friday evening, it was very crowded and our server was busy and paid little attention to our dining experience. Since we were celebrating an engagement, she could have made a difference in our enjoyment of the evening and enhanced the experience. I suggest not dining on a evening weekend for a more personal dining experience.
I have dined here previously and enjoyed the food a lot. This time some of the food was not cooked as requested.
Food and service are outstanding as usual. I have been going to Porcini's since arriving in Louisville in 2007. I have used the establishment for social and business entertaining. Always very pleased!
Porcini’s never disappoints!!! So many amazing choices on the menu. I love the atmosphere! My favorite restaurant!!
Josh our server was very attentive to us —-
A perennial favorite for a reason! Great food, service, atmosphere and neighborhood. Going back soon.
I have been to Porcini's twice in the last 2 weeks and it very consistently excellent. We took our relatives to it for their first time and they loved it. The food and service was great!
Best in the City!
My wife had the fillet cooked perfect (medium rare) and flavorful, I had the veal chop it was also cooked perfect and very delicious.
Calamari appetizer was best I’ve had anywhere
Excellent food prepared and presented in an outstanding manner.
My wife and I visited for Valentine's Day and we weren't looking for a place running any kind of valentine special. We just wanted to go to a place where we knew we could get some great wine and have a great meal. We weren't disappointed.
The menu was a bit different than what you see online, but that's not a bad thing. The server brought out some bread and some very good olive oil with cracked black pepper and grated parm in the center. Very good. For our appetizer we started with veal meatballs with mushrooms and a Madeira cream sauce. They were delicious. We then split a Mista Elevata salad (shaved brussel sprouts, pancetta, baby kale, parmigiano reggiano, toasted pistachios, sun dried cranberries in a lemon garlic vinaigrette). The server told us that there would be an up-charge for splitting onto 1 plates and asked if we would rather share from one place. Maybe saved us $5, but I appreciated her looking out for us and letting us know about this. My wife had the surf and turf special, which as a 6 oz filet and a grilled grouper with lobster buerre blanc and jumbo lump crab. This also came with polenta cakes and asparagus. For my entree I chose the shrimp and risotto. Grilled jumbo shrimp, spring vegetable risotto and a lemon garlic sauce. We wanted to save room for dessert so we asked the server to box up what was left of our entrees. They brought everything back nicely boxed and bagged up for us.
The only disappointing part of the meal was the dessert, but it wasn't bad by any means. We should have gone with the chocolate torte, but I elected for the Chocolate pate, which was dark, white and milk chocolate formed like pate in a tourrine with amaretto and served with chocolate covered strawberries and a creme anglaise. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but not as good as anything else we had that evening. It was almost frozen. There is a recipe on the Courier-journal if you'd like to try it.
An amazing time for a Valentine celebration! The staff and management was very friendly and made you feel like you were part of the family. The food was amazing from appetizers to dessert. A must for northern Italian food.
Food and service were great. Drinks are pretty overpriced, so just a heads up there.
Amazing!!!!! Delicious! Prompt, polite,
Best food in Louisville.
Everything was amazing from appetizers to dessert.
Can't wait to share with out of town guests.
Always a favorite. We have friends who live in the Frankfort Ave. area and we love to walk up. Food is always great. Drinks too.
Best Service in Louisville!
We were seated in the small room on the left (not the main dining room). It was miserably loud. The food was wonderful, but the noise level still left an unpleasant taste in my mouth.
Awesome once again!
Food was great. Our server Kelsey was fabulous! Would definitely go back!
Food, service and overall vibe of restaurant were wonderful. Damien did a fabulous job serving and Jason, the manager, stopped by to check on us and chat. Very well done.
Great experience. It was my second time coming, it did not disappoint other than not having tablecloths but other than that it was nice
Food was excellent as well as the wine selection. Everyone in our group had good things to say about their meal.
I had a business dinner on Thursday night. Josh was our server and did an outstanding job. I had the Pollo Marsala and my guest had a NY Strip steak. The food and service was excellent. This is truly the best Italian restaurant in Louisville. Try it and you will not be disappointed.
The place was packed with interesting and beautiful people. I had the grouper, my husband had the Pasta with Bolognese, and our friends had the Chicken Marsala. it was all fabulous!! The place is lively and fun!! Highly recommend!! Lindsey
Loved the ambience, food & vibe. Our waiter waiter & his team were very attentive.
And enjoyable meal with friends. We enjoyed our own dishes along with traded items so that we would all have a taste.... finished with crème brûlée.... a great ending!
Everything was excellent! Ask for a tablecloth for special occasions.
Excellent dining experience. Wine list, service, and food quality exceptional. Personal attention and ambiance make this place a winner. Skip the cannoli.
Food was awesome, ambiance was great. Service was great. Believe the hype.
Porcini never disappoints. Great food, great service. Very attentive waiters.
Wonderful dinner and friendly service. Will return.
We go there about every month, service & food are always excellent
Excellent wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Food was excellent as was the service. Not inexpensive, but well worth the $.
Porcini’s NEVER disappoints! Good food, good service & atmosphere.
Food is very good. Went to wife’s birthday and was 2nd time going. Just as good as the first time.
