    Love La Camera and it was a lovely day to eat on the terrace. Food is good. Wish they wouldn’t remove empty plates before everyone at the table has finished though!

    Everything went once again well like always. This time we tried a new pizza which was really good with a carbonara. The cannoli desert in the end of our night was lovely! See you again next time!

    We ordered food during COVID lockdown which was delivered to our door and it was fantastic. Dining at the restaurant did not disappoint us. Great Italian food. But we missed the gnocchi tonight.

    Food was lovely, but wait time for meal was a little long and wait staff not very observant. Multiple times we tried to get someone's attention for drinks with staff just turning around and going back inside.

    Eaten here quite a few times - this by far the best. Table on the outdoor balcony, fast food service, great wait service and excellent hygiene protocols.

    After a 11 months absence, it was great to be back at La Camera on Xmas Eve. As usual, the food was delicious and the service friendly. It was also a lovely evening to sit on the balcony.

    After such a long time in lockdown and busting to get back to La Camera, it met all our expectations. Had a great meal. Will happily return and recommend to friends.

    Our meals were very ordinary the fillet steak I ordered was very chewy and the side salad was abysmal and at $42.00 was overpriced! My wife’s beef cheeks were well cooked but they were accompanied by 2 small pieces of polenta and 2 stalks of Asparagus this was a very minimal serving also for the prices charged?

    I was seated straight away, and had arrived early for my booking so wasn't expecting that. The waiter came to the table quickly and took a drinks order for me while I waited for friends to arive. We ordered our food in dribs and drabs which suited us but we could have ordered all at once if we wanted to. The waiter was excellent and recommended food for us (so he new the menu). Drinks flowed freely and came quickly. The food was pretty quick too given how busy it was. Only thing I struggled with was the noise, it was quite loud but once there were fewer people it was great. Recommend for group of friends inside, if you want a bit quieter you could try sitting out on the balcony.

    La Camera is reliably good. Quality Italian food and wine at very reasonable prices. Recommend the giant, thin crisp pizzas. The view of the Yarra River and the city sky line is a must see for visitors to Melbourne

    As usual, after a long break, Paul and Joe were so welcoming. Service and attention excellent, and food great. Long live La Camera! The setting on the balcony, overlooking Marvellous Melbourne, is superb.

About the restaurant

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
