Been there often. This is a good every day restaurant for Italian food. Food is nice but average. Price is all right, not so expensive with large portion.

I felt the pizzas were good but my spaghetti carbonara was overdone and too soft for my liking. The main portions were larger than expected. My suggestion would be to order a few entrée servings and share them.

Went here for dinner, were quickly seated, restaurant got busy after we arrived but service was still good, thoroughly enjoyed the pizza, usually always a guaranteed good option, I had steak with seafood sauce, was very nice, cooked well, decent place to go, good service and well priced unlike some these days. would recommend.

Took a team of kids to la porchetta recently and despite the wait to get a table received good service and enjoyed the food. Very popular spot on this warm night but the 10 minute wait was worth it. The kids enjoyed the food and so did the adults.

Always a busy place and I recommend it for cheap(ish) eats for the whole family. A regular visitor because I love the Cabonara :)

Staff here ar every friendly, my friends and I eat here a lot and often order in to our workplace as well. Cheap but good quality meals. Lunchtime specials are amazing - $10 for a huge chicken parmie (and I mean huge) and chips and a drink.

I know this from previous visits here, but still we decided to have pizza here and we were disappointed once again.

Can get busy so I would recommend you book ahead. Be prepared to wait for your meal, but it was worth it when it arrived.
