La Porchetta next to City Cinemas in Grafton Street comes across as cold and a bit harsh when you look through the windows as you queue for tickets at the cinema. The decor is a throw back to the 50's and I keep expecting to see The Fonz. But take a chance and go in for a pizza.
The service is good, from a generally very young staff. The pizza is consistent, fresh and filling with nice light bases. I'm no pizza hero but I've yet to have a bad one. My favourites are the Smoked Salmon and The Lot (11 toppings including prawns). A small pizza is just over $10 and will feed two ladies easily (they are very well filled) and a large (approx $16) will feed two said ladies and two middle-sized children. Although the kids prefer traditional Pepperoni.
La Porchetta also serve an impressive array of pastas, risottos and other Italian dishes but we prefer the pizza, which is also available for take-away in about 10 minutes. A good option after evening tennis.
I'll keep my eye out for Fonz. That would top off the meal!
