Frozen pizza and pre-prepared pasta.
The pasta seemed a tomato soup. Prepared in 5 minutes.
The pizza took a bit longer: about 8minutes, but it was just horrible. frozen dow and the ham was just bad.
The food was fast, and I left furious.

My family and I frequent this Italian restaurant in the heart of Mentone.

Food is always excellent, with speedy service and a warming atmosphere.
Prices are also fair for the amount and quality.

Strongly recommend for anyone who wants a quick meal with the family.

We ordered a large pizza which came quickly with generous levels of all ingredients, lots of flavour, and authentic Italian flavours. . . While other Porchettas are ok, the Rathdowne Street restaurant clearly carries forward the originator's recipes.

Excellent food, service and staff.

This is anther place which have been dishing put pizza and pasta for a while now. Good place for takeaways and they rarely mess up your food.. It's good for some cheesy goodness.

We dropped in for a quick meal before the football at Princess Park a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The one draw back was two staff that were on the afternoon shift, poor communicators and poor attitudes. We were seated at a table in the blazing sun streaming in our faces and politely asked to be moved, there was no one else in the restaurant at this stage, and were moved to exactly the same position, we moved three more times to escape the late afternoon sun. We finally settled on a spot just out of the main dining area and found the chefs to having a break, chatted to them and they were lovely. We had the best spaghetti marinara and spaghetti bolognaise we have has in a long time, plus excellent garlic bread, just delicious. We commend the chefs of La Porchetta who one us over with the sensational cooking on the day. Can highly recommend
