    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.

    Enjoyed our meal and the service was well within our stated timeframe. We’ll be back next time we are in town. Great fresh seafood and pasta/risotto. Best tiramisu we have had for ages

    Really good for pre-theatre with fast and attentive service. Dishes are generally good Italian fare - especially the veal cutlets - and prices very reasonable

    We go here frequently before concerts and it is a great place but this time although we had a booking they tried to make us sit at a small round table near the doorway to the verandah with a strong breeze coming through. We asked to move as there were plenty of tables but had a real battle which we won. They then tried to put another couple there who also complained and they walked out when they refused to move them. The whole time we were there there were spare tables so we do not understand why they would do that. It is table 27 for your viewers information and we would suggest asking for a table against the wall when you book. They were not at all flexible and we may go somewhere else next time.

    The reason the setting and atmosphere was lower was because there was a noisy party. The staff were able to move us to a more pleasant area. The lighting could have been a little better I. The new location. All meals arrived in a timely manner and were enjoyed by all.

    The food was really good, We started with Pizza's then had some pasta and steak, My friends Marinara Pasta was excellent and my steak was perfectly cooked. Our waitress was great. She was very polite, helpful and attentive. Highly recommend La Camera

    An excellent meal of seafood pasta with a generous helping of mixed seafood including two large prawns, but it could have served warmer. Still a good restaurant for a pre-concert dinner

    Unfortunately three of us tried two different dishes and we all felt that they lacked flavour which was disappointing. We've been here before and really enjoyed the meal but I'm sorry to say it lacked lustre this time.

    La Camera have always maintained a consistently high level of service and food quality. The offer value for money in a convenient location which is ideal for attending shows, concerts, events etc after you have finished your meal.

    Okay service, and tables were a bit too close together for comfort. Food though was good and I'd come back for the food.

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.
