We had takeaway pizza and it was quick and tasty. The base was lovely and thin. Staff were good although it was quiet and felt a bit like all the staff stopped and stared while we ordered.

I admit, when I can I eat there a couple of times a week, either with friends or delivery - which is free. Unbelievable Gnocchi Poĺlo, in fact everything is really good.

Our third visit to La Q was extremely disappointing. (In fact, I almost allocated the one-spot TERRIBLE to our experience.) We and our two friends - who live in the area - were looking forward to a catch-up and good food. We certainly caught up with each other but the good food was gone and the service was dismal. On...

Three of us stumbled upon La Q on Christmas Eve, after arriving in Melbourne late in the evening. Nothing much was open in Kew, but we are so happy that we found La Q, as our pizzas were delicious. Vegetarian, Hawaiian and Margherita were all so tasty, with bases, including one gluten free base, which was the best I've tasted.... More

I highly reccomend the pasta pockets!!!! The only thing is once or twice we have had sore tummys after eating here

Nice and friendly with the kitchen seen from most of the restaurant. Good variety of dishes with nightly specials. Paella was one of the night's specials. Very good rissotto, but not sure I'd call it paella.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant in this area and after reading TripAdvisor reviews (yeah!), thought we'd give it a try. Its a small little restaurant, cosy in winter, but might be warm in summer. If there are little kids, there isn't much space to move between tables/chairs. This is a restuarant for quiet conversation & dining, intimate surroundings.... More

La Q is a Kew institution, and no wonder. Our take away Pizzas were sensational,and our pasta fabulous. I think what makes the food sensational is that its just as they say it is. Beautiful gentle flavours, with fresh and honest tastes...yes please.

We have dined at La Q twice now, and can assure readers the menu offers much more than just pizza. Mind you, the pizza we ate on our first visit was very good, chosen from an extensive range of traditional and more 'gourmet-style' toppings. La Q is a little up the hill from the junction of High Street and Whitehorse... More
