Great variety of food options including specials, and a good option for pre-theatre dining on a Monday night
Hi Prue, Thanks so much for your feedback. We always have a great variety with our dishes and we also like to consider us pre theatre specialists. Kind regards Paul Scidone

We often eat at La Camera before shows at the Arts Centre. The service is excellent, we are always asked what time our show starts and the food comes in exceptional time. Food itself is very tasty and the menu offers a broad selection. Staff are friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is lovely - always vibrant and 'buzzing'. Will definitely be back.

We thought the food was good with sensible sized portions. The prices were higher than I expected eg $35 for a fresh pasta dish.

About La Camera Southgate

Food is life Nestled amongst riverside treetops on Southgate’s mid level, with stunning views over The Yarra River and iconic Flinders Street Station, La Camera is a touch of Italy right on Melbourne’s door step. The family owned and operated restaurant offers an array of authentic Italian dishes, including unique Roman-style pizzas, authentic Gnocchi oxtail from Trastevere, Rome and by far the most delectable Tiramisu in town. All made using quality ingredients and fresh, seasonal produce. 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
