We arrived in the rush hour, yet we found the service was excellent. We ordered a Fettuccine Carbonara and a Pizza with the lot. Two wonderful dinners with out a lot of delay. As we were driving travellers, asked for Non Alcoholic beer, but from there alcohol display no non alcohol beer. Good call, the pizza was worth writing about fabulous.
Have visited La Porchetta, Ballarat, many times and have always been quite satisfied with the experience, food and service-wise, basic though it is. However, my daughter and I who are vegetarians (she very strict) were eating the vegetarian Alfredo recently and we both discovered shreds of MEAT in our meals! I mentioned this to our service person on the way out who was very apologetic and said they would speak to the chef about it. I should have spoken to management but didn't like to make a fuss, but it's REALLY turned me off. I wonder how safe the meals are for those with allergies etc. Very disappointing.
Have been to this La Porchetta a few times and it's generally when there are no other options available. As far as La Porchetta 'Restaurants' go, the Ballarat one is the better of a bad bunch. The quality of food is 'ok' but the most obvious observation of this place is the sole interest in making money. The management watch over the register like hawks and rarely step from behind the counter, showing no interest in customer service or quality. Ballarat doesn't have a lot of options for dining out so this remains relatively popular...
we went to La porchetta Ballarat for lunch, the service was good, the food was nice. We didnt eat all of our meals and asked if we could take the left over pizza and pasta with us. We had spent a total of $177.00 and were charged an extra 90 cents for the take away containers. I thought they had a bit of a cheek charging for the containers after we had spent so much money.
