They do all sorts of Italian dishes, pasta etc, eat in or take away. Very fresh at great value. Not fine dining but a good place to chill and grab something to eat.

La Porchetta is popular but its pizzas not much better than the average mass marketed, chain-produced pizza. If you like going to a restaurant rather than getting take away, you may wish to consider La Porchetta.

The menu is extensive and the food is good; probably best described as comfort food. The service was very good. Everything arrived promptly and it was great for a family dinner out.

I have never been a great fan of cheap food and big quantity. I prefer medium serves(not small) but good quality. Packed full of flavour. To me La Porchetta is well below average.

We have been there a few times before because we can sit outside with our dog. We found the food to be basic but quite tasty. Today we went and it was terrible. First of all I got overcharged $50 because they charged me for the wrong table. I did get a refund. The first two meals and drinks came... More

La Porchetta gets mixed reviews from its customers. To tell the truth quite often, quite often the pizzas aren't very good. La Porchetta seems to be living on its reputation. You can get better pizzas in the suburbs.
