Best La Porchetta

I have been to a lot of La Porchetta Restaurants, I have found this one in Geelong to be the best by far. I mainly buy the fish which I have found to be excellent. For a reasonably priced meal and the best service ever you can't go past this one. The staff are the nicest and friendliest I have... read more

Always busy but always yummy!! The wait staff are always attentive and professional. Despite the restraunt being full the service and food is delivered promptly and to a high standard. Really enjoyed the meal, like that everything is available as takeaway and cant wait to be back to try something else on the menu.

Firstly what kind of chef works in an Italian restaurant and can't cook pasta? As a chef myself i wanted to walk in the kitchen and yell!! Secondly wait staff were really rude! We had to ask twice to be served, when the food finally came 45 minutes later we again had to ask for cutlery! Never ever will be... More

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.

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
