A welcome sight that promises sumptuous Italian food across New Zealand and Australia, it's hard to believe that La Porchetta started off as a tiny pizzeria in Melbourne's Italian hub. Today their warm hospitality is enjoyed far and wide.
Christchurch is no exception. Modelled like an easy-going American diner, La Porchetta Riccarton encourages you to bundle up with loved ones in a booth and enjoy Italian food exactly as it should be. Bright with natural light and decked out with cooling shades of whites and browns, immerse yourself in La Porchetta's distinct vibe and keep things chilled. Just like a busy, (sometimes chaotic) Italian family kitchen, La Porchetta always feels like home.
And the kitchen is always busy rustling up something delicious. Let's start with the pizzas where you'll find all the much-loved classics, as well as the signature Kiwi with mozzarella, ham and egg and a loaded number with ham, salami, shrimps, bacon, pineapple and veggies. It's called The Lot if that tickled your fancy. Don't forget to check out the regional and NZ pizzas too!
Onto the pasta and the choices are limitless. Spaghetti, fettuccini, gnocchi, the choice is yours! Then top it with anything from beef ragu to homemade meatballs, pesto or creamy chicken. Armed with meaty mains and seafood too, La Porchetta has all delicious bases covered. And that's before we got to the chocolate calzone...
