Since 1985, Australia has known La Porchetta. Indeed, La Porchetta’s roots go back to a run-down pizza shop in Melbourne’s Italian district, bought by Italian pair Rocky Pantaleo and Felice Nania that later turned into a dynasty. This, the Cranbourne branch of La Porchetta, isn’t too far away from those roots and so you’d best believe it’s every bit as good as the original with great pizza, pasta and an undeniable passion for Italian food. You’ll find La Porchetta Cranbourne on South Gippsland Highway meaning it’s easily accessible and absolutely worth a reservation in advance.
