    Would return just for the brilliant service alone... staff absolutely amazing, every single one. Best service we've had in a very long time. We found our dishes a little heavy on the olive oil (brushcetta) and very salty (everything!). But despite the overzealous seasoning the meals themselves were excellent quality. Lovely atmosphere, we would definitely come again.

    We got a great table with a view. We like coming back but this time all dishes had too much salt. The atmosphere was really nice and restaurant was busy so you can’t expect fast service.

    Food was amazing!! Service patchy, started with one waitress who then began serving the outdoor tables and we lost her. Left with whoever we could flag down. Rest room was ordinary, hold on to it and go elsewhere ???? The negatives aside; would definitely return for the food

    We went there for dinner twice when we were in Melbourne recently and both times it was a great experience. Meals, service and ambiance we all top class. Fantastic restaurant

    The service was excellent and we had a seat on the balcony as requested so we got to enjoy the lovely early evening overlooking Southbank. The food was delicious!

    The meals came quick; with great service although the serving sizes was small for adults and large for the children’s meal. The beer list was small but what they did have was excellent. I enjoyed my wine too.

    Delicious salads - fresh and tasty. I loved my grilled calamari- just wishes it had the chilli (which it has mentioned on the menu).

    Booked a few weeks in advance, but disappointed to be given a table in dark corner. Very poor waiting staff, waited ages to take order and deliver drinks then forgot about our desserts after delivering one of them. 20 mins later had to enquire where they were. Order had got lost (apparently). Therefore, we will not be back as too many nicer restaurants with better service.

    My pasta main was adequate but a little dry, also for price serving size a little disappointing. Drinks were very nice, and choc dessert was tasty. Food came out quickly however wait staff were a little slow and not attentive (filling water glasses), bringing dessert menu proactively, or not asking if we wanted more drinks. Also Windows need to be cleaned - was staring at a bird poop which interrupted the view to the Yarra.

    La Camera Southgate

    Hi Despina, Thanks so much for your feedback. Firslty we apologise if the food was not up to the usual La Camera standard. A very busy , record breaking weekend and staff were pushed to the limits. On the whole they did a fabulous job, but perhaps were not on the ball 100% of the time, but as I said it was a difficult weekend and the guys are human and a few mistakes occured over the week. Not a bad record for over 1000 covers. Most kindest regards, Paul Scidone Manager

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
