La Camera Southgate
We always enjoy our luncheon dates at la Camera. Great food and very good value combined wit friendly and courteous service.
Waiting staff seemed a bit stressed - the restaurant was very noisy, so tricky to have a decent conversation. The food was nice though
Service was great however the meals, one pasta, one risotto were small and with very little substance and poor presentation. Given that the meals were a main the cost $28 _ $34 I thought they were very expensive and not at all memorable. I have patronised La Camera as a pre theatre on several occasions but the last 2 occasions provided disappointing and relatively expensive meals and will mean I will now go elsewhere.
A great family friendly location and menu. Authentic Italian meals. Great views fr a special occasion if you sit outside.
Dinner with a view! La Camera always delivers on fresh, great tasting food. We had pre-show dinner this time. The wait staff were excellent - recommending menu selections and ensuring everything was delivered to us on time.
Nice place to dine!
We went for pre-theatre at Hamer Hall. Pre-booked and traffic was grid locked in city but they saved our table. We ordered Chicken Parmagiana = smokey and salad excellent + Rigatoni.
Both were high quality and tasty. We were gone within the hour - Bit loud but Excellent experience and staff were super. Kudos to LaCamera
Booked for a group of friends for pre Anzac day footy match. Service was friendly and welcoming but slow due to short staffing. As we were expected to pay a public holiday surcharge, onus is on the owners to provide sufficient staff. Drinks/food took around 40 minutes to arrive but was delicious when it did come. Balcony table overlooking the river and city was special.
We came pre-theatre for dinner. I have been many times and have never been disappointed with either the food or service. It was timely, the food delicious and generous servings. It’s my favourite pre theatre dinner spot.
Excellent food and friendly yet professional service with magnificent river views are the outstanding features of La Camera. We always eat there at least once every time we come to Melbourne. We are always able to linger for as long as we want, no pressure to leave quickly.
I'm always happy with La Camera, thats why I come so often!
This place was a last minute find for us over the busy Easter weekend. After a recommendation from a friend we decided to book a table for Easter Monday evening as we were catching up with friends from the USA, who we had not seen for over 10 years. The staff were amazing, the food very tasty and the view from the balcony of the Yarra and the city was spectacular. Our friends were impressed with the Melbourne hospitality and were delighted that we had had found this place! Thank you La Camera for a fantastic evening. We will be back.
This place was very tasty! Good Italian food right along the river. Great for date night!
Went for my partners birthday, the service was 5 star. Could not have received better service anywhere. And the food was to die for. And when it came to sing the waiters all came out and stood in a line and sung happy birthday
It was perfect
We bought friends from the US here for dinner. Sadly we had really average food and completely inexperienced staff. It was quite disappointing all round.
Until we go the mains the boxes were all checked - service - good, atmosphere - good, drinks - good, entrees - delicious - had the arincini and the bruschetta. Mains - linguine seafood, gnocchi and tortellini. All were generally lacking in flavour, seemed liked they had been in open air (dried on top), lukewarm and the gnocchi were hard. It was a bit of a let down and felt sorry for the staff as they were so good and professional.
good food, excellent service, highly professional and friendly waiter
A lively Italian restaurant serving excellent food, lots of groups enjoy this vibrant establishment and it has a regular returning clientele. This day we went we were early for our booking and we were sat close to a group who were enjoying themselves raucously with shrill and loud laughter. If this worries you the staff will attempt to relocate you but it all adds to the atmosphere. We love it here and will be back next time we visit the city.
