The food, wine and service at lunch was outstanding. And being a nice sunny day the views were pretty spectacular, too. Three of us had Calamari as a starter and rated it as probably the best we had ever had. Our main courses were also great so this was a lunch to remember.
Hi there, Thanks so much for the rave review. The Calamari salad always gets super feedback and whether it's an appetiser or salad, it is highly recommended. Kind regards, Paul Scidone Manager

Great atmosphere, in particular when you sit on the balcony and having the great view. Nice antipasti varieties, not just pasta and pizza. We loved the delicious authentic cuisine, and superb service.

Sit out on the large balconies, or in the main dining area where the interior is adorned with vintage black-and-white photographs depicting the history of the family run restaurant. There’s good reason to dine at this Southgate stunner; whether you’re after a quick bite before work, a venue to host a business lunch, great food in a central location for a family meal, or a pre theatre meal, La Camera has you covered. Relax, unwind, escape - and make La Camera, your room…where as with all Italians…“FOOD IS LIFE”. Best dish: Gnocchi oxtail matched to a shiraz
