Porcini is like that older, but really nice car that can get overlooked for a trendier, newer model. After a while you realize you still prefer the older one that makes you more comfortable and runs much better. That's how I feel about Porcini vs. the newer spots that might be good for selfies, but short on everything else that... More

I visited here and enjoyed the meal. The veal chop was very good. The penne carbonara was also very good. The service was fairly slow, but it was Derby weekend and the place was real crowded. It would be probably be a good place to revisit.

We were attending Derby Week and were taken to this restaurant by our host. She has been there many times and told us that in addition to the great food, it was also good for groups. In front of the restaurants, they had two violin players, and a nicely painted horse statue, which seemed so appropriate in this city. The... More

Porcini's never fails to impress with their classic caesar salad, perfectly al-dente pasta, and entrees. Nothing better!

I care a lot about good service, especially at an upscale restaurant and that was the only thing lacking at Porcini, even parking was easy which is no simple task in that neighborhood. We had a reservation which was good since the restaurant was quite crowded. the tables are very close together but we had asked for a quiet table... More

Six ladies out for an evening. We had some time before our table was ready and hand wine in the bar. Good wine list and they even had some TVs so we were able to watch the NCAA game. This is definitely not a sports bar atmosphere, though. The TVs were just a bonus. It is a very classy and... More

I have enjoyed many dining experiences, but the taste of Porcini's chicken marcella was out of this world! The wine sauce that is prepared for this dish will blow your taste buds away. If you're on Frankford Avenue I highly recommend dining at Porcini's.
