We went in for a Pizza and were not dissapointed with the flavours. The young man who served us was very good at explaining the sizes and that we could combine types, 1/2 one and 1/2 another. The pizza was cooked well and was served in quick time, which was what we wanted. A modern, open, warm and clean building.

Entertainment Exceeds Expectations! We came here for a family gathering to farewell our family who are moving overseas. We were greeted by friendly staff, served very quickly and efficiently, and we were even entertained by a magician "D V ACE"!

We went to La Porchetta for dinner on Saturday night. The girls who served us were really good and helpful. The meals came out including one vegetarian feed. There was bits of bacon in the vegetarian sauce. We sent the meal back and it came back pretty quickly, but this time it had a thick long black hair tangled through... More

We got a combination of delish pizzas and pastas. The pizza were a good size and really flavoursome, (maybe a bit much oil in the salmon, but hey). We had chicken and aioli which was very very nice, and a salmon. The pasta dishes were ample at entree size, one per person for teenagers was deemed more than enough for... More

The food was delicious - had both pasta and pizzas. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere in the restaurant was great. The booth was clean, would definitely recommend it for a nice Italian meal!

Took ages for the waitress to serve us (actually she passed by several times and saw us, but we got ignored completely) food was not good, atmosphere was poor. Wouldn't be an ideal place to enjoy Italian food.

We had a group of 8. Pasta dishes were good, Pizza was good, Warm chicken salad was poor only had lettuce red onion and chicken (not worth the money) We were never asked if we wanted any second drinks. Restaurant was really quite for a Friday night .

Atmosphere non existent , service average ( had better at McDonald's ), pasta great, dessert- tiramisu and mousse. Waitress informed us that is was 2-3 days old after we started eating it. Chocolate sauce had solidified. It was inedible.

Thank Rachel B
