    Great and quick service. Pizza sizes were generous. Vegetarian pizza was so so but Margarita was good. Chips and the lemonades were good. Pasta portion size could be improved ambience is good.

    Staff are very friendly and efficient without 'hovering' over diners. The pizza is best in town. My friend's ox cheek with polenta looked amazing.

    Had a fantastic night, thank you. Everyone loved their meals, service was friendly and efficient. The jazz was great, perhaps a little loud to chat with friends, will definitely eat there again.

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
