I took my fiancé here for a birthday meal as we had never been before. It was around the same time as Longton had their music festival so the restaurant was busy. The staff were well presented and friendly enough and seated us quickly. The food arrived promptly and was quite nice but they sat us right next to the... More

An hour and a quarter in, we STILL had not received any food - there were only 3 of us. Eventually we got some garlic bread. Absolutely dreadful service, the food wasn't much better as proven by my frequent visits to the bathroom when I got home. Definitely won't be returning.

Had to return my starter due to being raw and totally uncooked. Ordered fillet steak for main course had to send it back to the kitchen twice for being undercooked again. Service was poor and the waiter was argumentative. Very poor evening and will never return again.

Table of 20 booked tonight. Seated straight away. Drinks overpriced at near £5 per pint. 17 meals served in relatively timely manner but 3 people left with no food initially. By the time these 3 meals were served most people had finished eating. Then they started clearing the table whilst people still eating. Food was average, nothing overly exciting. First... More

The lighting is a bit bright for some tastes and the ceiling is high, so not particularly intimate, but the food is good and the service after a bit of a gap between order and food coming is friendly and good. Children are catered for. The tables and space you have is better than in many restaurants, but on a... More

Arrived at 7.55pm and was seated straight away. Ordered some drinks, chose our food and then closed the menu. We then waited 25 minutes for someone to take our order with no apology whatsoever. We asked if we could have a smaller starter size main course but was told firmly no. The time then approached 8.55pm, an hour after we... More

The food was perfect ! Fillet steak cooked exactly how i requested , sauce perfect and vegetables amazing! The starters were beautiful as well. The restaurant was quiet but for a Wednesday evening only to be expected , I was delighted I chose Porcinis for our anniversary meal , cant wait to go again !

Lovely food. For once managed to choose my food within minutes. All time favourite parmigiana aubergine to start and risotto porcini. Was beautiful. Too full for pudding so had coffee. Waiters couldn't have been more lovely.

I hadn't been to Porcini's in a very long time and decided to go with friends for my birthday! It was AMAZING food and made me think we were in Italy! My friends enjoyed it so much that we went back a month later for their birthday dinner also! It's not a big place; make reservations or get there early!... More

We always enjoy porcinis, great food and a relaxed atmosphere. Their prices aren't too extravagant either! Their mid- week pizza and pasta nights are particularly good value for mooney .
