The waiters were attentive and nice, but the food was horrible. The pizza was very dry and flat, it was like a stale piece of cardboard. I am very disappointed.

very pleased with the range of gourmet pizzas on offer. Loved the prosciutto pizza and the seafood one too. Both high quality so well worth a try

Been going here for business and pleasure for around ten years, the service is always great (Fiona the waitress is always friendly and on the job). I'd highly recommend it when visiting Queen Vic Market. The only improvement would be a bib to keep the sauce off my shirt!

They do all sorts of Italian dishes, pasta etc, eat in or take away. Very fresh at great value. Not fine dining but a good place to chill and grab something to eat.

La Porchetta is popular but its pizzas not much better than the average mass marketed, chain-produced pizza. If you like going to a restaurant rather than getting take away, you may wish to consider La Porchetta.

The menu is extensive and the food is good; probably best described as comfort food. The service was very good. Everything arrived promptly and it was great for a family dinner out.

Stopped by for lunch after Queen Victoria Market. They serve pretty big portions and we had some pastas and a pizza to share. They don't stinge on the ingredients and all the dishes tasted pretty good. They have a small selection of gelato which is quite good as well. They had a kids menu and we ordered a grilled chicken...
