We dine regularly at La Camera so I guess that is the best recommendation one can give - last night grand daughter & I had a nice meal on our way to Melbourne Arena for the Melbourne United basketball win over Illawarra Hawks! Food & service was great as usual!

Our meals were tasty but presentation could have been better. My risotto looked like baby food(!) A small amount of greenery on the side of each of our plates would have improved their appearance. Service was v.good & quick which we appreciated. The location was perfect for the State theatre where we were headed after dinner.

Return here often as it a beautiful spot, with views over the river and city from the veranda. Food is always good and the staff attentive.

Arrived 1 hour early for our evening meal but were warmly welcomed. As it was to early for a large meal, we settled on sharing a pizza but as it was so tasty, we then shared some starters. Drinks menu was quite good and prices were about right Service was informative and quick Excellent venue for pre or post theatre or just taking your time enjoying the city views across the river
Hi David, Thanks so much for your perfect rating. We aim for the perfect dining experience and we appreciate your feedback. Kindest regards Paul Scidone Manager

Birthday celebration on the balcony was really enjoyable. Food was delicious and plenty of it, service a little slow and lacking friendly engagement, but this place is a family favourite and we will be back!

I have been here a few times and always feel the staff are distracted. Missed part of our order. The food is average, nothing special at all. However it’s in a good location and convenient.

About La Camera Southgate

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
