Almost thirty years ago (1985), when Italian-born Rocky Pantaleo and Felice Nania took over a run-down pizza shop in Melbourne's Italian hub, word got around.
News of La Porchetta’s great pasta, pizza and Italian-style menu, its atmosphere and great value spread rapidly and soon it became renowned as a special place to experience good food.
The place had a buzz and some days you could even go there and listen to Rocky strumming his guitar to his favourite Italian songs.
Since then, the La Porchetta family has worked hard to create that experience in other restaurants.
They wanted to bring the same special qualities — delicious food, warm service, great value and a family heart.
We now have more than 70 restaurants in Australia and New Zealand.
They all maintain Rocky and Felice’s original passion, however each is unique to its community and each will look after you with the same family passion.
