La Porchetta (Italian pronunciation: [la porˈketta]) is an Australian and New Zealand restaurant franchise which has become one of the biggest Italian restaurant chains in those countries.

Founding and history[edit]

La Porchetta was established in 1985 by Rocco Pantaleo and Felice Nania, when they bought a run-down pizza parlour called La Porchetta in Rathdowne Street, Carlton. Their first franchise restaurant opened in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir, Victoria in 1990. Since 1990, over 80 La Porchettas have opened across Australia, and around 55 exist today.[citation needed]
