Excellent atmosphere and food was great! Would definitely come back next time in the Chicago area
amazing time, great food.
If you’re in a hurry, this isn’t the place for you! But the wait is well worth it because the food is impeccable. The kitchen seemed to be extremely busy, but the servers worked well and they took great care of us. Highly recommend and will be back soon!!
Great food and service. The food was rich and delicious. Wines were nice but not a huge selection.
The food was amazing, so many fun cocktails to choose from and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant! Will definitely be coming back next time we are in the Chicago area.
Food was amazing!!! Service waa great ambiance fantastic!
Made reservations based on the high ratings from Yelp and looking at the menu online. Our server was wonderful - very attentive and personable. The food was good - nothing was wrong with it and enjoyed our meal (did drinks, appetizer, a pasta and an entrée between two people) but I wouldn't say I was left speechless by the meal. Basically it wasn't something that I would make a point that I had to go back to the restaurant for the food. Also, restaurant was really noisy - it is a small space, so just with customers talking the noise level is high. Then they had the music pretty loud - so between guest conversations and the music it was overwhelming. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic restaurant this isn't it.
I love this restaurant and will definitely be returning soon. They had a great selection of food and drinks and I especially loved their semifreddo dessert! I would return just for that honestly, but everything was great. Everyone was super attentive and the atmosphere was excellent!
Everything tasted amazing you could tell it was fresh.
The ambience and decor was wonderful. Our server was attentive and friendly. 4 of the 5 meals came out at once and there was a little delay for the 5th meal even though it was a pasta dish. The food was quite salty. The server did recognize our special occasion with ice cream and a candle which was nice. I’d give it another try.
Fun evening! Girls getaway weekend. Everything was great, good service and fun atmosphere.
Our meals were delicious!
The drinks and appetizers were very good. Our server didn’t have much of a personality, but bartender was very nice as well as the bus boys. We were very disappointed with our main entrees though. The alfrado has no flavor and honestly I’ve had better alfrado from a jar. My husband’s ravioli was okay. The tiramisu we had for dessert was wonderful! We may return, but definitely better Italian restaurants in Chicago.
We loved everything! We went on a Saturday evening and it was packed. We sat at a high top near the bar area and ordered each item to be shared. We loved the garlic bread and gnocchi... you could tell they were both made from scratch. We’d recommend this place to friends and go back if we had the chance.
We had a reservation and they were running quite late. They were super nice about it treating us to Prosecco and three appetizers. Server was knowledgeable and very good. Cocktails were yummy. We will definitely be back! It was a hit for everyone in our party of 6.
My three sisters and I opted for the family style meal so that we can sample a variety of plates. We prepare many of the dishes for our own family celebrations and were delighted to compare and identify potential changes to our own family recipes. However, would like more fish and steak options. Perhaps a braciole? The amount of food for the value was good. We will be coming back!
Great! Gave us a free mini appetizer because it was our first time dining there. Recommend the burrata!
This was the second time I’ve been to Il Porcellino and it did not disappoint. We had a fantastic time! The food, the music, the drinks, and the service were exactly what we were looking for in a birthday celebration! We will definitely be back!
Loved the ambiance and the food was excellent!
In the dozen or so times I have been here, Il Porcellino never fails to impress in every respect. The newest item I noticed (and tried) is the PORCELLINO BACON RAVIOLI. Great.
Amazing. Thanks for the great experience !
Food & staff were superior! Great experience & we’ll be back again.
Fantastic meal and service, great choice!
Great place to go for a great meal with many great options
The burrata appetizer was very tasty. My husband ordered veal parm and we didn't find out they were out until after we received our app. The lasagna was good but they make it seem like burrata is a major part of the lasagna (hence, the name) but really there is just a small amount on top. The eggplant parm was light and tender but, unfortunately, it was served just warm. I asked for extra sauce and the sauce was cold. The waitress did replace the sauce, which, on the second attempt was served hot. The restaurant is comfortable and cozy. I might give it another try, if for nothing else some drinks and apps.
Had great food and great service from our server Rafa. 10/10 would reccomend
We had an awesome experience at il Porcellino! Food was excellent.
Everything we ordered was very good.
Absolutely loved it! Great service and wonderful food! We will be back!!
The service and food was great! We had reservations and they sat us right away. The also had round tables for parties of 6, which was great so that everyone could chat with everyone. Highly recommended.
Great service and the food was delicious!! The atmosphere was nice with the lighting above the dining room. We will be back!
This was a great experience as usual. Thank you so much for the great time!
Really enjoyed our evening. Got the family style meal. Each and every course was top notch. Get dessert! The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely. I look forward to returning as soon as I can.
Great service as always from the staff. Highly recommended
Service was exceptional! Every meal was perfectly prepared and delicious! We cannot wait to go again.
We just got into town and were craving Italian. We lucked out in finding il Porcellino and we snagged an opening that was 30 minutes later! The food was delicious and the service was spectacular! We will definitely eat here again the next time that we’re in Chicago!
Excellent service and great food at a reasonable price.
The food is great! The service was fabulous. Our server Thaise was fun and knowledgeable. Loved the family style for four option. It was a terrific value. Can’t wait to go again!
The service and food were amazing! I would highly recommend Il Porcellino.
We had a great time! Our server was awesome, helpful, attentive and so kind. The food was great, exactly what we were looking for.
