If you want a quick generous meal at a very reasonable price, this is the restaurant for you. We went there last Monday night after an exhausting day at work. Had a large pizza, half meat lovers & half chicken BBQ. Very generous size. My husband & I are not small eaters. Wine list was well priced. The whole meal was $50. Very reasonable. Service was quick & friendly. Have been coming to this restaurant on & off for many years & always happy with service, food & the fact that they open at 5pm is fantastic. We can basically go straight after work. They also do takeaway & I'm pretty sure they deliver.

La Porchetta makes really good pizza's, great toppings and very filling. I would recommend them. We phone order them and pick them up and drive to the strand and eat them overlooking the ocean.

The porc has always been my favourite whilst living in the gold coast. However the townsville one was a slight disappointment. Initial service was very friendly and prompt. Entree came out quick so did our first drinks.

However then we waited another 45+ minutes for our food and for further drink service. The restaurant was quite so staff and kitchen was not busy at all.

Food quality was good and most enjoyed their food. My boscaiola however was bland and boring. Some cracked pepper might have helped but wasnt offered.

Overall it was rather average mostly because of the wait for food and drink service.
