The service was pretty average, the food took ages to arrive even though we got there early and there were few people in the restaurant, and when we finally got our meals they were a tad bland. The friend I was dining with observed the big open window to the kitchen and the fact none of the kitchen staff were wearing hats or hair nets. The portions were adequate but not what I would call generous. I won't be in a hurry to dine there again.

Found La Porchetta's service and food not quite as good as what it used to be. Last few visits been very dissappointed in quality of food, friends have felt the same.

We tried this out twice since we moved here 7 months ago. Both times were very disappointing. Even the kids play area they are putting in won't help drag us back. We sent back the doughy garlic focaccia, which wasn't much better with a retry, even the dough was ordinary. The kids meals were ordered with drinks, and arrived before the drinks, and only after prompting. The penne carbonara was tasteless-even our seven year old didn't like it. My spaghetti marinara might have been better out of a can, and my husband said the cannelloni was average at best. What has happened to the prices, they used to be great! The place had loads of staff, all young and social with each other, not especially interested in patrons, so the service is really poor. In our old town we ate at la porchetta regularly, but here it is off the list!
