    We were greeted by very friendly staff, the food was delicious and we had a lovely evening. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a small or larger group.

    Had the best night at La Camera just before lockdown, food was delicious, staff were tentative. It was Naples night and the Live music was Bella Ciao. They were fantastic and even had us shy ones, dancing all over the floor with musical instruments left on our tables. So much fun and we needed this at these uncertain times. Thank you La Camera

    We were attending a late matinee at the Playhouse, I was recommended to book at La Camera. This I did seamlessly and easily via their booking app. On arrival we were greeted and seated very quickly. The waiters were quick, efficient and friendly. Ordering was prompt and all items were brought to the table quickly and pleasantly. The menu was broad and allowed a choice (in my opinion) for every diner. After we chose our meals we were asked if anyone had food allergies (no), a nice touch. The food was nice and the wine really lovely. All told a great experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone prepared to spend a little bit more than a café style dinner.

    Lovely lunch on the terrace, the food is beautiful and the service is friendly. Perfect Melbourne spot to have a nice meal and a few vino’s with friends.

    Very enjoyable dinner, staff understood need for prompt service in order to attend a show. Ox chheeks cooked 8 hours with small pieces of vege and red wine sauce wonderful, albeit I would have appreciated a green.

    Some of the service was good, but other parts were slow and not very helpful. Food selection was uninteresting and food was not particularly tasty. Quite disappointed compared to previous visits.

    The staff was very friendly at the entrance, staff should pay more attention to customers first, not just busy putting bottle of tap water at the service station. After we had all main meal done, staff came and took away the plates but failed to ask if food was alright or if we needed coffee/deserts.

    Parma was somewhat disappointing. The salad was inedible. Pretty airless inside too. Carbonara could have more bacon, etc. the waiter was very nice

    Great food as always, very quick and friendly service, will keep coming back. Risotto and beef cheek were top class and setting is very cosy in Southbank.

    Service was very good - made to feel like VIPs! My daughter and I loved our mushroom risotto and linguine marinara very much and seating on the deck was great with the option of a heater if the sun isn’t shining (like it did for us).

    First time diners who thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Very friendly attentive staff, generous servings of food with plenty of gluten free options. Absolute highlight was being entertained by 2 tenors, a soprano and a highly talented pianist. We booked online and were unaware of the entertainment, it was superb and the atmosphere in room was so upbeat and happy. We will be back.

    Overpriced set Mother’s Day menu, did not accommodate dietary requirements, staff members were rude ignored our call overs. Wait times for food and drinks were long, drinks were forgotten and the advertisement of the days events were false

    Took twenty minutes before we were even offered a drink. Minimal choices for vegetarians, unless you want pizza. Not even a vegetarian pasta. The risotto, one of the few vegetarian dishes, was cold. Definitely won’t be back.

    Great atmosphere and service but good quality terrible. Not enough gluten free options and meals were "pub" quality which is a real shame as menu was more better for gluten free options and quality pre-covid. We used to love La Camera but will be looking elsewhere :(

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
