“Great Italian restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Four of us ate an early supper here a couple of Fridays ago. It was fairly quiet to begin with but soon started to fill up, the staff were friendly, helpful, suggesting both food and wine and had a great sense of fun!
The pizzas are amazing, I seldom eat them but they looked so good I went for it...so pleased that I did! The pastas were good too and, although I was too full to eat one, I'm assured by the 2 men in our party that the sweets were also delicious!
A total change from the usual Italian Chains, well worth a visit, and we will definitely go back When next up in London.

“The greatest Italian restaurant in London. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff, massive portions, great Montepulciano. The pizzas are huge and you must try the seafood linguine. You can't do any better than La Porchetta.

“Good Italian tucked away on a side street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Just a short block down Boswell St, near the busy intersection of Southampton Way and Theobald Street, this is a great find. The pastas were excellent and the service was attentive as well. If you're tired of "chain" restaurants and tourist traps and want a reasonably priced, high quality Italian dinner or lunch, La Porchetta is the place.

“Delicious, thin, crispy pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Brilliant service from a knowledgeable and attentive waiter. Starter of tomato garlic bread was outstanding as was the pizza I had. My friend had seafood pasta and it was delicious and presented in a foil swan! We had the tiramisu to finish and it was also excellent.
