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 .

We visited here on Saturday evening for my husband's birthday celebration. We came here following a previously excellent visit for our wedding anniversary in May. Unfortunately this visit was decidedly less good which was a shame as we wanted to impress the rest of our group with a really great meal with fantastic service. The food was okay, but considering...

We came for the Pizza & Pasta evening meal. The garlic bread was very good and the pizza my wife chose was as she liked it, I had the crepe was also good. We are about to book a table for a family celebration in a few months time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Unimpressed. Dissatisfied. Hungry. Could not eat the pizza as it was just a mushy mess. Garlic bread was dry and uninviting. We will not go there again. Our friends had warned us and we decided to give the benefit of doubt because months ago someone had said it was good. Not at all
