Ordered the popcorn prawns from the specials menu which was nice. However the Marinara pizza had frozen tiny prawns and mussels which had no flavour, barely any sauce base. Also ordered a vegan dish, waitstaff bought out wrong pasta which was rectified after a couple of bites.

Staff were friendly and the house red wine was good.

Think of Dominos and Pizza Hut having a baby and La Porchetta is what you get. Some porking was def going on in order to spawn a pizza joint like this. Awful. I've seen children make better dough than this.

Pass time food if you're starving but that's about it.

I'm a local and whenever there is a special occasion I come here to eat. They have authentic Italian food and especially the T-Bone is great.

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.
