Prices are reasonable. I would give it 3.5 stars but can't give out a half star.

the Pasta is nice, but nothing special.

Pizzas are yummy, I would have a pizza over pasta.

Atmosphere is just okay, it's really set up like a takeaway place only a little jazzier.

Had a lovely catchup with friends with a great laid back atmosphere. Went again the next day with my partner, thoroughly enjoyed. Must have is their fresh baked bread rolls. Great value if u watching dollars and still want a decent outing.

La Porchetta is a great option for a decent meal out when you're watching your pennies. Not somewhere to go if you're after fine cuisine, but you can expect affordable, tasty food in portion sizes that aren't stingy. BYO wine here too which is fantastic, and at a nice price of only $3 per head. I recently went with a few friends to celebrate a birthday and the staff were incredibly accommodating, allowing us to bring in a cake earlier in the day for our reservation that evening. When the cake was brought out by the staff, the lights were dimmed briefly and the entire restaurant sang happy birthday to our guest of honour! No extra charge to bring our own cake either which was a nice bonus. Our total bill ended up being less than $20 per person including shared starters (and wine and cake!). A good meal for next to nothing and our birthday girl left feeling quite special. Pretty happy with that!

This is an excellent little Italian restaurant. It is always busy and has yummy food at a reasonable price. On average you would pay about $15 for a main, so very affordable. Food is mainly pizza's and pastas but does also offer other alternatives.

I had a very disappointing experience here. The service was fast, in an attempt to push us out the door I expect. Staff pestered us to order before we were ready, cheque was brought before we had finished our meal, lights were turned on and clean-up started before we had gotten up from our booth, at 9pm on a Friday night after we had booked for and arrived at 8. The food was disappointing (uneven toppings, toppings missing) and not worth the cheap prices in our opinion.

Let me start with the positives: very efficient service, meals started coming to us within 5 mins of ordering. Unfortunately that was the only positive, the food, horrible! The meat lovers pizza we ordered was extremely greasy, horrible pizza crust and had very little meat toppings. Lasagne again had very little mince filling, just layers of pastry drowned in tomato sauce. To add insult to injury, the OJ tasted like it had been watered down (or gone off!)... to summarise we will NOT be eating at La Porchetta again!

Fantastic value, great food. If you're going to do the pizza thing tonight, make it a La Porchetta. With your choice of pasta and sauce, we always get a selection and pinch from the other's plate. Service is variant, but mostly polite. And their 'La Porchetta liqueur coffee' is a must!
