    Always excellent food and service. Have been coming here for more than 15 years. Salads, pasta, meat and seafood all expertly prepared. A gem of a restaurant in an unassuming strip mall.

    This is a family owned restaurant that is a tiny whole in the wall. If you blink, you miss it but don't blink because it's authentic Italian food that definitely doesn't disappoint. We had fresh whole sea bass and linguine and clams with an excellent bottle of Chianti. I'd highly recommend this restaurant fiir the Italian food lovers!

    Former neighbors came back into town and we were all delighted to eat at a longtime favorite restaurant together. The food was great as always and the intimate and friendly atmosphere made for a great evening. Everyone loved their entrees and thought the choices of wine by the glass were excellent for the price.

    The evening was wonderful. The food and wine was very good. The service is always excellent. This our fourth or fifth visit and this time we brought friends. One is a former food writer and had nothing but compliments of the experience. This "hole in the wall" restaurant is a great find and a fabulous place to got with friends for your dining experience.

    Always delicious! I introduced my friends to Il Porcino and they all loved it! We had eggplant Parmigiano, veggie risotto, scallops risotto and branzino. Everything was fresh, flavorful and tasty. For dessert we shared Torta della Nonna, Creme Brulee, Cheesecake with blueberry and lemon crumble, and Tiramisu. The desserts were fantastic and a perfect close to our meals

    Completely forgot about this cute Italian restaurant in Fremont. Amazing service and great food selection. The lobster ravioli and the linguini with scallops/shrimp were amazing. Rucola salad was very good The calamari were a bit disappointing the pieces were too small and too dry. The cannoli were just ok but the filling was good. I def would recommend coming here and will return.

    Wonderful Italian restaurant! Amazing specials everyday. The only problem we had was deciding what we were going to order everything sounded good. The service is great and this restaurant has become a staple for our family for the last 5 years. Glad to see that they made it through the pandemic and we're actually able to set up a tent for outdoor seating.

    Valentines Day was pretty hectic but the servers and kitchen managed to keep up. The spinach ravioli were creamy and tasty. My mate the rolled up veal which he said was great. We shared a salad that was nicely dressed and had some melon fora nice touch. The only negative was the bread which was soft and thin sliced. I prefer a nice crispy loaf. Otherwise a pricey but nice holiday dinner.

    Great Italian cuisine set in old school decor. We’ve been dining here 2-3 times/month since Oct. Perhaps the best fine dining restaurant in the Fremont Tri-City area. Family owned and operated, everything is cooked fresh and to order. I’ve had the Branzzino (signature dish), rack of lamb, lamb shank, scallop risotto, rib eye steak, cioppino, and more. I can recommend any of those dishes depending on what you are in the mood for. The cioppino might be the best I’ve ever tasted. Their wine list is not extensive, but feature good wines that are not over priced. I like the Hess Allomi Cab for an everyday wine. For something special, the 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella is great.
