Atmosphere non existent , service average ( had better at McDonald's ), pasta great, dessert- tiramisu and mousse. Waitress informed us that is was 2-3 days old after we started eating it. Chocolate sauce had solidified. It was inedible.

Having never been to La Porchetta before my partner and I were looking forward to an Italian plate of pasta. I'm no cook and I have made better at home. The food was very disappointing. We were there at 7.30 and were also disappointed there...More
