Our second visit, with a large and noisy party. Great food at reasonable prices. The usual Anti pasta was plentiful and delicious and my porcini risotto creamy, a bit more liquid that I am used to but apparently that is the local style.

I visit Salsomaggiore on a frequent basis and I always make sure to make a visit to La Porchetta to have their excellent filetto al pepe verde and a nice bottle of wine.

If the Romans were eating food like this, I understand why they threw up after each course. We paid ten euros for one slice of the most disgusting "pizza" I've ever eaten. You get better pizza at "la porchetta" in Australia. It was crunchy on the bottom, thick and bready, covered in spc tinned tomato paste and tasteless ham. The... More

Went here thinking, "it's a tourist trap, clearly, but it's so nice and inviting, it must be okay". Do not let La Porchetta's Chesire cat grin fool you. It is an inauthentic, expensive ditch into which all of the world's bad pizza ideas have clearly flowed. The price that will get you a single slice of what passes for pizza... More

We have eaten here a dozen times. We usually eat at the tables on the wide pavements, under the awning. La Porchetta is at the top end of Salsomaggiore's main boulevard - and is well-placed to catch passing trade. It is a big establishment - up to 120 tables fully opened up. The mainstay here is Pizza, nearly 40 different... More

Taken to this particular restaurant by Italian friends as this restaurant is famous for its pizzas and parma ham. I was not disappointed and the one I had also had mushrooms on the ham; completely different from what one eats in the UK and absolutely delicious. The tiramasiu was home made and wonderful, followed by lots of draft peroni. Sat... More

If you want Pizza Hut style deep pan slices covered with mushrooms straight out if the can (slightly warm) and are willing to pay three to four times the price than in Pizza Hut, this place is for you. They serve you oily deep pan Margaritha slices and just throw the additional ingredients (e.g. Parma ham, ruccola or mushrooms) on... More

Had lunch here on a trip in the spring and very impressed. Apparently many years ago the used to serve just one or two types of dish but they have expanded since then. Their signature dish would appear to be a slice of Pizza topped with parma ham. The Pizza base is thick and due to the way they cook... More
