Italian-style restaurant La Porchetta opened its doors to the public at 11am today.
Owners Roula Abdo and Ali Sefeddine were excited about the opportunity to bring La Porchetta back to Shepparton.
“There was a need for more family restaurants in Shepparton so we saw a big opportunity,” said Mr Sefeddine.
“The space was great for a restaurant and fit with our ideas, including main road exposure.”
This is the second La Porchetta venture for the pair, opening their first in Werribee, Melbourne.
“We’re excited, but it’s good that we know what to expect,” said Mrs Abdo.
The new restaurant has two large indoor dining spaces and outdoor dining. The upstairs area has been perfectly designed for functions and events. Kids parties are also available.
“This is a family restaurant, everyone is welcome here,” said Mr Sefeddine.
La Porchetta Shepparton has hired 25 to 30 local staff members, and is enthusiastic about using local and fresh ingredients.
“Everything is made on site,” said Mr Sefeddine.
Visit the team from Sunday to Thursday 11am to 10pm and Friday to Saturday 11am to 11pm.
La Porchetta Shepparton is located at 257 Wyndham St, Shepparton.
