Very welcoming. Fairly standard pizza fare, but freshly baked and good choice. friends said pasta good. Small portions for children. Offered to pack up uneaten pizza as takeaway. Very nice staff.

Firstly I should give you some background. I am a post-graduate student, huddled over my laptop one cold rainy evening in January until the early hours, desperately trying to complete an assignment I had been pouring over for days. Out of nowhere, the pizza craving hit... And we all know that there's no getting rid of that without the aforementioned... More

I didn't expect this little local Italian to be up to much however, we had good pizzas and pasta at a very reasonable price. Excellent service too.

What a shame Average food (with a hair in one dish), awful service as the woman was extremely rude and aggressive (the older gentleman was charming but this could make up for it). Overall there are much better options on upper street

Visited with my boyfriend as we needed a quick bite before a big at the assembly hall. We weren't super excited by the menu but were really happy with the taste and quality of food. We had the calzone and a pasta dish with minced pork, mushrooms and chilli. Really delicious! We didn't leave a thing in spite of being... More

La Porchetta is one of my favourite restaurants, this is because they continue to produce consistent good quality food at what can only be described as very reasonable prices. Whether you're looking for something simple like Pizza Napoletana or Spaghetti and meatballs, or a full blown three course meal you'll struggle to find better quality and value on Upper street....

The pizza is pretty good and well made, though it's not the cheapest. I'd advise against the pizzas with fresh mozzarella (eg buffala) as they add it after the pizza comes out of the oven which cools it down. Arancini etc are delicious but not worth the price.
