"My wife who is a great Italian cook and I went to this cool little place for a "date night". It was easy to park and the table was ready when we walked in the door at 7:00 pm. The staff was awesome and friendly and the food was even better. I had a special "veal ravioli" that was awesome. I never heard of making a ravioli out of a veal shank but it was tremendous. Portions were a little small when you compare to other local Italian places in South Philly but I had a big dessert and lots of bread. I am a big guy @ 250 pounds and like a big serving! The place is small so gets loud. We were near the kitchen but that's OK -it adds to the ambiance. The owner was very friendly and came around a bunch. I think he liked hearing how much I enjoyed the food. The tiramisu was fresh and flavorful. Suggest they serve regular coffee cause I need more than small espresso after my meal! I will go back and I recommend all those who like creative Italian dishes to give it a try! You can wear jeans and sneakers too, shorts now that it's getting warmer.
reasonable price for the food. Entree was $24 and deserts were about $10 or $12. It's BYOB. I dropped about $135 including tip for two so not cheap but not at all expensive.

"A hidden gem! This was the best meal we have had in a while! The homemade pasta can not be beat, silky, melt in your mouth deliciousness. The filet was so tender with a luscious sauce and perfect vegetables. The pollo milanese was probably the best I have ever had, delicate and mouth watering. We ended with a wonderful house made mille-feuille, very light. Our server was extremely professional, helpful with menu descriptions and suggestions and so very pleasant. The inside is very small and tables very close but don't let that distract from the A+ food! If you are simply looking for great food this is your place."

"The best meal of four nights of dining out! Kudos to a talented chef run operation. Did small plates and appetizers so could taste 5 items. Wait person paced their arrival for leisurely eating. Save room for dessert .....especially the apple pie with bourbon ice cream!"

"We were blindsided by the fact that this restaurant is a BYOB restaurant. Open table needs to display warnings more prominently when this is the case. Looked forward to a 2 great food and wine and shocked when they told us this was BYOB. Proprietor rescued us by "giving" us a bottle of wine. Restaurant and food were both outstanding."

"My date had a pasta dish she's been raving about for days now. My own meal was delicious as well. We sat upstairs at 7:00 on a Friday night. It was quiet at first and only got moderately loud as we were leaving around 8:00-8:30. We would definitely dine here again. Lovely place, great service."

"Always good. Simple basic Italian well prepared. Veal Marsala was tender, sauce flavorful and not too heavy. My partner's rigatoni was also "just right." Small and crowded, but it works!"

"A friend and I took the train into the city and selected Porcini as our BYOB choice. We were early for our 7:30 reservation, but got seated right away. We were in no hurry to order and leave and the wait staff was wonderful in allowing us to talk, slowly eat our meals and drink our wine. The owner did stop by and told us we were going to love the appetizer that evening. I don't recall exactly what is was, but there was shrimp and crab and some type of cream sauce served over a toasted bread. It was delicious! We used the bread from our basket to sop up the remaining sauce and seafood!"

"We return and bring out of town visitors for the authentic old Italy ambience. Most of all, though, we know that the menu selections will be outstanding. Although I am not in the habit of ordering appetizers at every restaurant, I never fail to order at Porcini. Most recently, it was the hot peppers stuffed with risotto and sausage. Again - guaranteed to be good. Be prepared for the tight space ... there is absolutely no room for standing and waiting. The service is genial and prompt."
