“Consistent yummy food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

The food here is consistently good and we ate there twice during our visit to Melbourne. The pizzas and pasta are great and the service is friendly and efficient. Get an outside table if you can, but if you can't, there's lot's of memorabillia inside to look at.

“Cheap and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

La Porchettas is always predictably good for a pizza place. Staff here are so friendly, even late at night. Made our experience special.

“Terrible service from the manager”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

My partner and I have eaten at this la porchetta a bit the service is so so but tonight was disgraceful! My partner ordered an American pizza which come out half cooked it was so terrible he ask to sent it back to cook a bit more. When it came back it was burnt beyond eatable! The waitress was embarrassed and said she would again take it back to get a new one. Next minute the Owner/Manager come out and started to abuse us basically telling us it was our fault because of what we had ordered! We will never eat there again a would highly recommend no one does it was horrible! I think the owner needs to reconsider his occupation because working in customer service isn't his strong point!
