Service was over bearing. Was asked how the food was mid mouthful. One of the servers was hard to understand and when we asked for something he went to another table and forgot about us. We waited 15 mins or more after ordering before being told Pizza oven wasn’t working after we already ordered a pizza as a starter so we cancelled that order. However at the end we were charged for the pizza we didn’t order. At least when we questioned it we got a refund. My mushroom risotto was undercooked and bland and left a bad taste in my mouth. My partners mushroom fettuccini had no spring onion and the sauce wasn’t like it used to be. It was not that nice to eat. I was also unimpressed with the fact they do not offer gluten free fettuccini carbonara. Spiral pasta is not a fettuccini carbonara and gluten free fettuccini is much nicer pasta anyway. In the last 2 years or so this place has really slipped in all aspects. I would not recommend going here.

Family lunch. Kids menu deal good value: pizza, chips, soft drinks and ice cream. I had a main size lasagna (wished more ragu, less cheese) Partner enjoyed the warm chicken salad. Free water & bread rolls a nice touch. Friendly service.

The experience of dining at La Porchetta was nothing short of astounding. From the time of arrival the atmosphere was warm, welcoming, and the smells of the freshly cooked food was tempting to the appetite.

The service warm, quick and attentive, and the level of service was nothing short of professional, while the food was singing from the kitchen, and the prices of the food was more than acceptable for both the choices and dish sizes. I would highly recommend La Porchetta to anyone who wanted great food at reasonable prices, and a memorable dining experience

Two great meals from this restaurant. Beautiful pizza, great pasta and reasonable prices make this a really good place to try. Prompt and cheerful service helped make our visits very pleasant. RECOMMENDED.
