SquareMeal Review of La Porchetta

Ignore the basic decor at this jolly Italian chain: the enormous portions of pasta & pizza are consistently good & more than compensate for the unimaginative surrounds. Some unusual possibilities crop up among the conventional line-up of quattro stagioni, tagliatelle verde & lasagne – think squid ink risotto, or pizza with Gorgonzola & pears, for example. This is a place that’s tailor-made for birthday lunches & leaving dos.
