    La Camera serves up consistently excellent food in a lovely part of Melbourne. Staff are friendly and efficient. It’s great to support a family owned business.

    This is a really great Italian/Australian Restaurant. I am so glad that it has survived the Covid scares, and is getting back to it traditional standards. I come here as often as I can.

    Fantastic Italian food. We were lucky enough to be served by the owner who recommended particular dishes to us - the risotto and seafood linguine were amazing.

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
