Best customer service I’ve had in a while and that was by everyone that served us. The food was also delicious. Will be going back for sure.
Very attentive, great food and service. . .not as big as other la Porchettas, so not noisy. Totally recommend
La Porchetta is famously simple, classic and timeless – there’s a reason they have been going since the first Melbourne store opened in 1985. The team here are certainly passionate, and there’s a buzz in Glen Waverley’s La Porchetta that you just don’t find anywhere else. We recommend kicking things off with a few starters to share, such as the famous cheesy garlic bread topped with herbs and fresh veggies; Sicilian arancini balls topped with Bolognese sauce and salt and pepper squid served with rocket and a zesty lemon dressing.
Then, pizza fans can’t miss the Original Porchetta brimming with mozzarella, Italian pork sausage, basil and olive oil, or The Italian loaded up with salami, bacon, anchovies, olives and herbs. You’ll also find regional pizzas like the Italian sausage and broccoli from Puglia, all your favourite pasta dishes (and some very special signature ones as well), risotto and all the meat, chicken and seafood you could dream of. One thing though, no visit to Glen Waverley’s La Porchetta is complete without tucking into the delicious homemade tiramisu topped with fresh mascarpone and chocolate. You’ll find this branch of La Porchetta on Blackburn Road, not too far from Melbourne’s city centre – reservations are essential.
