Great Italian food, excellent service and perfect sitting outside on a warm and balmy night. Not over priced at all, very reasonable and would highly recommend for couples and families.

Great service our meals came out quickly and we were asked at the beginning if we had a theatre or event we had to get to . Nice meal but we thought it was a bit pricey for the amount on the plate

The service at La Camera was great. The calamari salad was divine, the pomegranate cocktails were very refreshing.

This is in a great location so suitable for all occasions. We used as a pre-theatre opportunity. Everything was efficient. Food was good - nothing to rave about but certainly fair value.

This is what you get when you combine a **free wine tasting night, a little mingling, some some soothing and very cool jazz, the idyllic location and sumptuous Italian fare? It's a hell of a night and one reason why so many patrons have attended our Southbank Community Nights over the last 12 years. If you fancy a drop or two, then this night is for you. Over a dozen new wines (reds and whites to taste from and an opportunity to buy your favourite glass or bottle on the night. Our resident saxophonist, Clinton Fry, will be back again to play all your favourite Jazz classics and some special requests. La Camera has become synonymous with innovative, enjoyable dining events which has seen patrons flock to La Camera on the last Monday of every month (except December and January). Whether it be a Cooking Class, Opera Night, Live Music or Italian Yum Cha, one can be assured of an excellent night's entertainment and sumptuous food.
