well no one has to worry about this place because it has now closed. The setting was very homely and quite serene but thats where it stopped. The young staff needed to learn a little more about PR. The pastas were preprepared and had no taste unless there was chilli in it.... just a major disappointment

We stayed walking distance from La Porchetta.
I waited at the hotel for my wife for around 50 minutes for her return with the pizza's.

She said the pizza was ready, but they didn't advise her.
So it went cold, i would think they would keep it in a warmer, but didn't.
The crust was soggy, and the little toppings and cheese on top were terrible.
It's amazing how we can have La Porchetta pizza in Surfers Paradise recently, and it was the best pizza ever, but Mandurah, was absolutely terrible.

I did write to La Porchetta (Mandurah) with no response.

Food is cheap but a bit plain - could make better at home really. However, prices are good (including alcohol prices) and most of the tables feel private.

The food and service at this venue was a disgrace, something that this organisation and franchise should be ashamed of. I would not even send Basil from Fawlty Towers for hospitality training there or feed my neighbour's yappy dog with the sub standard quality of food presented on my plate and those that were dining with me. On arrival we ordered our meal only to be informed 45 minutes later by another staff member that half of the menu was not available. Some drinks were not available and those that were served were warm. The staff provided us with many explanations about the poor service, including lack of staff, and a computer system which was not performing. What are they using, a "commodore 64"? We are locals that eat out regularly. Unfortunately, we will not be eating at this restaurant again.

Surprized at some of the reviews, agree service staff could do a lot better but all very young. Always found food to be first rate. Love the calzone style pizza,s and the spicy meat pasta. The serves are huge.Drinks can be slow in coming, complained once and caraffe that was half full was filled free of charge for the inconveinence.
