Porcini Ratings and Reviews
I took six friends to Porcini, two couples and two individuals none of whom had met each other before. Not having been to Porcini before, I was concerned that the ambiance might not be right or that the noise level might prevent interaction at the table. It took me little time to realize that I had chosen the perfect place. We arrived at 6:30 and didn't leave until almost 11 pm...not wanting to leave then! The interior is spectacularly beautiful and warm, and the service is professional and prompt yet unobtrusive with no rushing whatsoever. And the food was absolutely extraordinary. I ordered a spaghetti dish but asked for no garlic because of a speaking engagement I had coming up. It didn't need garlic. The accompanying seasoning and beans were astonishing. The atmosphere literally fueled the chemistry at the table, everyone leaving with new friends. I will be back.
It was our 21st anniversary and it was a hit or miss choice, We are so glad we made our reservation with Porcini.
The food was incredible, the decor was amazing, and the staff went way beyond the call of duty with their professionalism.
It maybe a new secret getaway more often.

Porcini's is a fabulous restaurant!! We love the food and the ambiance. The Bar is always fun. Lots of beautiful and interesting people to talk with. Liz was our waitress and she was great. (Service is always good) Lindsey Miller
Porcini’s is my favorite Italian Restaurant as well as just a great place to have dinner. Tim and his staff do a great job. The food and service was great. Nick was our server and he was fantastic.
Again, I would highly recommend Porcini’s for any occasion or just a an evening out.
Second trip there and was very pleased. Food was excellent and plentiful. Service was great, although server could had been a tad more attentive. Ambiance is real nice. Was very loud last time, this time it was perfect. Took care of regulars who come there a lot, which I am hoping I will be one. Really good pizza and the diver scallop appetizer is excellent. Will be going back for both!
The couple at the table next to ours arrived about a half hour after we did and got their food within 20 minutes. We got our wine right away and a cup of the soup of the day soon thereafter, but we waited at least an hour for our entrees. We've not had such a bad experience there previously. It's as if they lost our order.
