Had a spaggetti it was delicious. The girl who served the food was really helpful. We understand we took quiet a long time to order because most of the names were not familiar to us but she helped us to find the best one.

Some mixed reviews for this place but we thought it was pretty food. My wife and I both had pizzas and thoroughly enjoyed them and our granddaughter had a meal from the kids menu. We ate early so wasn't crowded and service was good.

This is a busy spot and that is always a good sign that it's worth stopping. La Porchette is a friendly place for a family meal. Our food eas delicious and we enjoyed good service!

When presenting Italian food and sporting an Italian name, one might have assumed it was going to be wonderful. But sadly the meal was very average. The garlic bread was bland. The Schnitzel was tough and the pepper sauce was bitter.

La Porchetta is an Italian À la carte Restaurant reknown for our tasty pizza, pasta and traditional dishes made from the best quality ingredients. With over 74 stores in Australia and New Zealand, your next Traditional Italian mean is not too far away. THIS IS OUR STORY... Almost thirty years ago (1985), when Rocky Pantaleo and Felice Nania took over a run-down pizza shop in Melbourne's Italian hub, word got around. News of La Porchetta's great pasta, pizza and Italian-style menu, its atmosphere and great value spread rapidly and soon it became renowned as a special place to experience good food. Since then, the La Porchetta family has worked hard to create that experience in other restaurants.They wanted to bring the same special qualities - delicious food, warm service, great value and a family heart. They all maintain Rocky and Felice's original passion, however each is unique to its community and each will look after you with the same family passion. ---------------------------------- This Parnell branch is no different, we bring this passion to you 7 days a week. In the heart of Parnell, right across from the Heard park. After hours parking available at rear of restaurant.
