    The Camera is a fabulous place to eat whether for lunch or for dinner. Food is lovely and the service always great. At times it can be noisy because the restaurant is full which tells you just how popular it i. It deserves that popularity.

    A good restaurant for kids and big groups. Food was so so but prices fairly high for the quality. Service was very friendly. Close to the theatre.

    Excellent authentic food in a great location. A great place to catch up with friends and then see a show. Highly recommended. Try the lasagne, you won't be disappointed.

    With son and grand daughter we all had a very enjoyable meal at LaCamera Good Friday evening. We had a table on the balcony overlooking the river which is always a plus with lovely evening views.. We are quite regular diners at La Camera as the food is always very good.

    Found this restaurant on the website for the restaurant vouchers I got as a gift. Sooo nice! Easy to get to via public transport and easy to find. Very friendly and helpful staff, fast service considering how busy they were! Food was delivered hot and delicious. They have a huge bowl of Parmesan cheese which the waiter/ress wil scoop onto your plate until you say stop ... very very good!

    We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. We were going to a show and the timing was perfect. The only thing I'd change would be the music - something laid back and perhaps Italian would have been in keeping with the general ambience.

    We have enjoyed dining at La Camera many times. Last year we missed out due to COVID. It was lovely to gather a group of friends for lunch at La Camera. We all chose different mains, and everyone commented on the quality of the food. My saltimbocca was delightfully tender and the accompanying fried zucchini were delicious. Service was attentive and prices reasonable. We'll return in the near future.

    Very busy night but happy to see the place buzzing again with people queued to get in. Have never had an average meal. If you enjoy a steak this is the place to go.

    Lively vibrant venue but the calamari and pizza too tough. No complaint about lasagne, very nice. Wine list could be improved - not enough choice

    Decent meal with attentive service. We enjoyed La Camera takeaway several times during lock down last year but the meals this time were not as tasty. Pastas ordered lacked flavor and were a little dry. Mains were otherwise good.

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
