"Porcini is our absolute favorite local restaurant and we are hoping to become regulars! We love bringing out of town guests here to experience the intimate setting as the restaurant is located in a very small row house with only 10 tables. And the good is the best Italian we've had in the city. I love when we get a chance to go here! It can get fully booked with long waits so I would recommend always having a reservation."

"The ambiance here is awe-some, really, you walk in and just feel a need to stare and/or take pictures. It's stunning. Unfortunately despite having made a reservation a few weeks ahead of time (and mentioning in the reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion), we had to wait half an hour and instead of offering us a drink at the bar, they just pointed us in that direction and offered many excuses.
The steak, salads and drinks here were delicious, it was the sides that were good but left a little something to be desired, maybe a bit more seasoning. Considering how many amazing restaurants there are in Philadelphia, I probably wouldn't run back here very soon but overall it was a great dinner for a special occasion."
