Please do not consider visiting Da Porcini if you prefer 'one size fits all' and/or 'impersonal' dining experiences. This is a bespoke restaurant which offers a wide range of high quality food at reasonable cost. The owner is both characterful and knowledgeable. if you would like to eat something that is not on the menu, just ask for it. Nothing... More

We had 28 people for my mum's birthday lunch. The food was delicious, staff were brilliant & the whole event went smoothly. We have eaten here many times & each time the food has been excellent. Great local restaurant.

Very accommodating as our booking was made at the last moment on a Saturday night. Good choice of Italian food. All freshly made good service.

A stones throw from my front door, this restaurant has become a favourite, food is always good, specials even better, enjoyable wine list. Music is at a level that you can enjoy a conversation. And the owner and his staff are always very friendly.

We ate at Porcini last night together with our 21 month old granddaughter. Food was delicious. Service was friendly and professional. Soup of the day was piping hot. Pasta was al dente, just right. And the risotto was perfect. Apparently, risotto is my granddaughter's favorite! Like grandpa like granddaughter. Price is also extremely reasonable. Will definitely go again soon.

We eat here about once a week - the specials change on a Thursday and there's always a choice of three starters and three main courses, in addition to the à la carte and set menus. The food is consistently good, excellent pastas and staple Italian dishes (bruschetta, calamari, veal, liver); wine list is Italian but with plenty of choice... More

This is a nice restaurant especially with the open front when the weather is good. The food is tasty and the portion size good but this is not cheap. I believe they offer a lunchtime special menu. The staff are nice but this is central London prices.

We visited as a party of eight including two children and had an overall good experience, the layout and open frontage bringing to mind restaurants one might find on the Riviera. The food was good, served promptly and without fuss if any specific requests were made. While it is a good restaurant it occupies a certain niche or style which... More
