Square Meal Review of La Porchetta Clerkenwell ?

From one perpetually rammed branch in Finsbury Park in 1990, La Porchetta has grown into a mini-chain, but it remains family-owned & family-run. What they lack in finesse, these lively pasta & pizza joints more than make up for in vitality & generous portions. Vast, crisp, thin-based pizzas come with any number of toppings – some traditional, some not so traditional (perhaps Gorgonzola & pear) – while ample bowls of linguine with meatballs, pesto fusilli or good old spag bol would put even an Italian mamma to shame. Unsurprisingly, La Porchetta is a hit with parties & families – so don’t be surprised if your fellow diners happen to be pre-schoolers or rambunctious students out on the lash. Moretti beer on tap & litres of house wine are the tipples of choice.
