"went here for restaurant week. we were super excited because we love trying new restaurants in the city. we were seated upstairs, and it smelled like BO. it took the waitress about 15 minutes to take our order. the food was decent, the atmosphere was below par. the only positive is that it was a BYO. very disappointed because it was restaurant week. will not be coming back."

"LOVE THIS PLACE. I have been several times with my boyfriend, and everytime, all of the staff could not be more friendly. They do not rush you out (like some BYOBs). I love how small and intimate the dining rooms are."

"Porcini is a welcoming restaurant offering good food at a reasonable price for a BYOB model. The wait staff is friendly without being intrusive; they know the menu. The owner makes sure that everything is satisfactory and is ready to deviate the dishes if you have a special preference. Yes, it is a little crowded but what you get is a personally oriented experience with very good food."

"Grabbed a quick reservation for Restaurant Week. Prix Fix menu had a nice selection for 4 courses. Food was very good. Service was very good as well.
Upstairs was closed so it was tight quarters but cozy, not overwhelming and the servers has a good grasp of the area. Very attentive.
I would good back for sure.

"Porcini's is located in a historic building which has very low ceilings and very cramped tables. Because of this, the noise level was not energetic - just loud. It may be a great place for a party of 6 but not the place for a date. The food was good but not what was listed on the website. Twice I mentioned that it was my husband's bday but it went unnoticed."

"I used to get out more often but it much harder now with 3 kids. When I can get out for the night, Porcini is always at the top of the list. Consistently great food, great owners, and great staff!"

"Good, reliable Restaurant. Linen tablecloths, old school Italian music, quaint little BYOB. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. Nice joint."

"A family based establishment that extends the family feel to the patrons. The menu is progressive with solid roots in the traditional."

"Pros: Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Cons: the restaurant is a bit run down. The prices are too high, $24 for rigatoni bolognese. Towards the end of our meal the chef/owner was arguing very loudly about a customer outside the kitchen door, which was right next to our table. The f-word was flying and everyone in the restaurant could hear. This is unacceptable. We won't be back. There are better, less expensive BYOBs in the city."
