Can't believe it wasn't busier. Staff VERY accommodating. Great choice, would definitely return. Plus lots of gluten free options

What a shame Average food (with a hair in one dish), awful service as the woman was extremely rude and aggressive (the older gentleman was charming but this could make up for it). Overall there are much better options on upper street

Visited with my boyfriend as we needed a quick bite before a big at the assembly hall. We weren't super excited by the menu but were really happy with the taste and quality of food. We had the calzone and a pasta dish with minced pork, mushrooms and chilli. Really delicious! We didn't leave a thing in spite of being... More

La Porchetta is one of my favourite restaurants, this is because they continue to produce consistent good quality food at what can only be described as very reasonable prices.

The pizza is pretty good and well made, though it's not the cheapest. I'd advise against the pizzas with fresh mozzarella (eg buffala) as they add it after the pizza comes out of the oven which cools it down. Arancini etc are delicious but not worth the price.

We received great service, really friendly staff and timely arrival of our food. The food itself was lovely. La porchetta has become the Italian restaurant I most enjoyed going to.... More

Nice atmosphere, affordable and good food, super-friendly staff. We had starter, main and dessert and everything was on time. The neapolitan manager Dino is great, such a character.
