We were entertaining visitors from overseas, and asked when originally making the booking, that we were seeking the best that Melbourne could offer. As usual, La Camera complied fully.

finally got there,only just, as my wife had gastro overnight but felt well enough to go to La Camera, as last time I had to cancel due to I had covid. Got what I expected greeted immediately and shown to table. I ordered the fish of day(barramundi) special and what a treat. The fish melted off my fork into my mouth and every mouthful was as good as the first. Cooked to perfection and the crispy skin was able to cut with the fork it was so tender I and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our meals

We are regulars at La Camera before Melbourne Theatre Company shows or concerts by the Symphony Orchestra. The greeting is welcoming and service professional so never have an issue with time. The meals are consistently good with a variety of choice, that is why we are regulars.

Birthday Celebration It is not our first time in this restaurant. The food is always good and delicious. Our table was perfectly positioned as we told the restaurant we have a baby with us. It was very much appreciated! Staff were friendly but could use more of dropping by the table to check on us to ensure if everything is ok, like what they used to do in the past. Overall, it was a pleasant lunch and we all enjoyed the food. Will surely recommend La Camera!

Nice place except for all the Carlton crap around. If I hadn’t been with other people and hungry I would have left.

Nice to be back at La Camera, we miss going there for our pre-theatre dinners. We brought new friends there for lunch. The day-time customers were different but food was good as always. Service was a little unattentive with clearing away dishes and replenishing drinks. But overall a good experience.

We found the meals most disappointing. We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and generally found the meals very good. If I was a first time diner I would not go back.

Lovely to be at La Camera again! Sitting on the balcony on a beautiful day having lunch with my friend sharing delicious salad and drinks while catching up. The staff warned the food might be delayed but some how it arrived in a timely manner due to her intervention. Thank you ????

We had seated on the table next window overlooking the Yarra river. The pizza to share for entree was very yummy.

This is the second time we have eaten at La Camera and each time we have loved our meals. My partner raved about his duck confit dish and my ox cheek was delicious! Lovely friendly staff. Would highly recommend.

The food is always great here. The pizzas in particular are really nice. We have found over several visits in the last 12 months that the service is not very attentive. We had to wave at someone after 20 minutes of arrival to order drinks and meals. We then had to ask for cutlery for our main meals followed by a request for cheese for the pasta (we had to get out of our seats to get the attention of a waiter). We then had to find a waiter to provide a box for our leftover pizza. It is unfortunate that the service isn't at the same level as the quality of the food

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
