The food was good. The hygiene was appalling. There were two men serving in the dining area, which is very small, so you can see everything. One was a waiter, the other seemed to be a manager/waiter. Within a few minutes of being seated, I watched the waiter wipe his nose with his bare hand multiple times, and serve plates immediately after (you can see the plates be handed to him by the kitchen). He then proceeded to cough directly into his hand, again, just before serving plates. I was glad that it would be the manager serving our table. Then, I watched the manager cough STRONGLY into his hand multiple times... and he too, served plates directly afterward. (Who still coughs into their hands?) Then, to top it all off, the waiter went to the tablet on the front desk (everything is within feet of each other in this dining area) to pull something up on the screen... and (I kid you not) then sucked the tips of his fingers as if he had just finished some chicken wings and... you guessed it, came over to clear our table and touched everything including our silverware (placing it back on the table for our use). I would have been horrified pre-covid at what I watched here, let alone now. It's a shame, because the food was good and the manager was very personable and a good host. Just would not recommend that this is a safe place to eat.

We have been going to Porcini for years, often to celebrate. Last time we came to celebrate our 50th. That night, we co-celebrated purely by chance with another couple celebrating their 52nd and a young woman celebrating her birthday. Such a joyous occasion!

I really liked our visit to Porcini for restaurant week! The staff was very inviting, and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend. It is a cozy space so it can get a little loud, but it was still a very fun place with delicious food. Definitely recommended.

First time dining out for my partner's birthday during Center City Restaurant Week. For $35.00 per person we thought to give it a try. Glad we did!

Delicious Italian food, fun ambiance, and the staff surprised the birthday boy with everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to him with a candled dessert.

Will definitely try Porcini again.

My husband and I had the best Italian meal we have had since we have been back from Italy, 2 years ago! Not only was the food fabulous, we were able to sit for awhile and chat with the owner during our stay. He was so friendly and willing to take time to make us feel as if we were eating dinner at his home.
We would definitely return should we return to Philadelphia!
Thank you for the great experience!

My favorite hidden Italian gem in the City. We keep a condo in Philly so we can enjoy the great food in this city. Porcini is a BYOB which is fun. You’ll meet the owners each time you come. My brother-in-law, an old WOP, always gets the veal but a conisuer like me gets their traditional bolognese with a side of the garlic bread. Always our first stop.
