La Porchetta used to be our Friday night staple when we first moved into the area 20 years ago. Back then, it produced good value, generous pizzas which were a little unrefined and tables were always packed to the rafters. La Porchetta remains a reliable stalwart of Stroud Green and, if anything, the pizzas have improved over the years, with thinner crusts, better mozarella and less piled-high toppings. Less spectacular are the non-pizza items on the menu, an aubergine parmigiana being a far cry from the moreish, melting plateful I was expecting. But it's still excellent value and service is efficient and friendly.

Excellent food, really outstanding pizza dough and the finest mozzarella. Service was just shy of perfect but was a busy saturday night so forgiven.

I enjoyed a lovely dinner here to celebrate my son’s 10th birthday with the family. The staff were very friendly. We were seated close to the pizzeria and my son enjoyed watching his very own pizza being made. The staff were great at making sure we were happy with our meal and we left feeling very content. A great experience!
