In traditional Italian families, some of life’s happiest moments take place around the table. Italians understand the magic created when you mix the delights of conversation with the pleasures of beautiful food and drink.
At La Porchetta we strive to recreate this wonderful experience between our families and friends at every meal. It’s not just about the food; it’s the experience that keeps customers coming back.
Traditions provide a means to honour our ancestors. La Porchetta’s family traditions play a role in every aspect of the business: the preparation of our authentic recipe, the warm welcome shown to each customer and the respect given to every employee.
The first La Porchetta Restaurant was opened in 1985, when italian born Rocky Pantaleo and Felice Nania took over a run-down pizza shop in Melbourne’s Italian hub.
News of La Porchetta’s great pizza, pasta and Italian-style menu, along with its atmosphere and great value, spread rapidly and soon it be became renowned as a special place to experience good food, love and a passion for life.
La Porchetta today is ever vibrant and continues to be part of the local community. Just as the kitchen is the centre of Italian family life, our restaurants celebrate that feeling of being at home – delicious food made from fresh ingredients, warm service, great value and a family heart. The La Porchetta family now has over 70 restaurants in Australia and New Zealand.
