The food is fantastic and really cheap for the large servings you receive. The service is also exceptional, this is a great place to duck out to for lunch and still be back in the office within an hour.

I recently wrote about La Porchetta at Highpoint shopping centre in Maribyrnong, Melbourne. There I found the pizza to be very poor. So, I was pleasantly surprised by my meal at the Geelong branch of this franchise. The pizza base was thin in the middle and crusty on the outside. The topping was not too much and quite tasty. Keep... More

We popped in here for a kids party. The pizzas were good, coffee was excellent, and service was fast, friendly and nothing was too much for the wait staff. It is a big place, so plenty of tables. Give it a try!

A first time visit here with a large group of church ladies, so there was a lot of chatter! I had a beautiful Italian sausage & broccoli pizza, small size which was big enough for me. Service was great and we were served fairly quickly. My daughter choose an Aussie pizza & Gelato for after and was happy with her... More

If I could give this restaurant nothing I would! Where do I even begin?! Upon entering the restaurant we were left standing at the front for about 10minutes before any of the staff payed us any attention. For a Thursday night they were all but busy, only having a handful of people in. Once seated we ordered our drinks, and... More

My Seafood Platter was not very enjoyable at all. Scallops,hake fish fillet soggy not cooked & salad unappetizing too. It cost $30 did not eat it at all. It was the first time in awhile since I visited there & normally La Porchetta food is good. I should've had a pizza. My partner's pasta also not great either. I did... More

Christmas shopping led us to a last minute decision. We called in to La Porchetta for Pizza. Drinks and garlic focaccia were on the table rather quickly. Followed by pasta and pizza that weren't necessarily off the menu - they catered for our requests. While the venue may need a refurbish the food was exactly what we expected and the... 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.
