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.

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

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... 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.

Thank Josip M
