Wonderful Meal, Such a generous serve of Seafood in a Entrée Serve of Fettucine , A taste sensation with lots of garlic and flavour, have not had this amount of Fresh Seafood in a meal for a long time!! Go Geelong! La Porchetta

The place looks grubby and unkempt . The food was processed frozen calamari , processed mushroom sauce , the bread rolls on the antipasto were laughable and just awful . The tiramisu ......someone needs to learn the recipe . Probably the worst Italian I've ever seen.

The sauce was not what I expected. Very bland and tasted mostly like strong tomato purée. not impressed.

Something for everyone. Went there with another couple last Sunday for dinner. From the moment we arrived we were greeted pleasantly by staff and seated immediately. Friendly and courteous staff, drinks and meals were served promptly and together. Al a cart menu with plenty of options for the most discerning eaters, reasonably priced with a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

We went for lunch recently and I wanted something that was not on the menu (had been on the menu previously). There was no problem, they could make it for me. We had three staff wait on us - one to welcome us to our table and take a drink order, the second to take our food order and check... More

Great family restaurant, we went there when it wasnt busy so we were served quick. The staff were attentive and constantly come back to see if we needed anything. The menu was extensive and the meals were large and filling. We didnt wait too long for the food to arrive and it was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be going back.... More

Ate at LP on Monday 15/12/14 and ordered a soup followed by a main. Was halfway thru eating the half decent soup when waiter bought out my main and decided to leave it on the table. After I insisted that he took it away he eventually bought back a main that had been left on a bench and was cold... More

Service was very poor very inexperienced staff members! Food was well what chef would work in an Italian restraunt and not know how to cook pasta? Staff members were rude! Didn't get cutlery until we asked for it. The mains took nearly 40 minuets to come out. Never again will we go there!

Staying in a motel with no restaurant, decided to order a delivery. The Chicken Caesar salad was delivered promptly and was huge ! Very tasty. The letdown was the cardboard carton came without plastic or any cutlery what so ever. How to eat ?? Fortunately the motel office was most obliging and provided a steel fork.
