Another pleasant pre-matinee "special lunch" of main and wine for $20. All of our meals were very good, esp the calamari salad and chicken risotto. Staff are always friendly and efficient, and the verandah on a sunny day, overlooking the Yarra river: superb.

You really can't beat an express lunch at La Camera especially when you time it right with the perfect Spring day in Melbourne. Great value, impressed on how quickly food was brought to the table. Do yourself a favour and save some room for dessert! Highly recommend the Heaven for Two.
Hi CJ, Thanks for your great feedback regarding lunch special. After 17 years I think we have our lunch special down pat. Oue Heaven for 2 is getting alot of traction on social media is not only do they taste awesome....they look a treat:).

decent steak, good side dishes, fresh salad. the service was a bit hovering. the beef brisket was dry, without sauce which was surprising. well cooked but lacking Italian inspiration. imported Italian beers are a plus, so is the extensive list of wines by the glass.

Efficient service provided by friendly professional staff. Our table had quite a bit of noise from the kitchen, apart from that a very enjoyable experience
Hi Lorrai, Thanks for your great rating and review. Apologies for the noise coming from the kitchen, but unfortunately on busy days and if sitting close by the kitchen, this will always be a little noisy. Kind regards, Paul Scidone Manager

The New Aperitivo

The New Aperitivo The Aperitivo is part of the Italian culture as pasta and pizza. Basically it’s their version of happy hour, but with food. Normally it involves a standard pre-dinner drink with some free nibbles and with the recent influx of Italians over the last few years, it is becoming very popular on the Melbourne Food scene. At La Camera Southgate we have our own version of The Aperitivo available every day between 4:00 pm -5:30 pm. Choose from a selection of platters with a huge variety of mouth-watering antipasti and receive a complimentary aperitif….Aperol Spritz, Campari, Vermouth, Negroni, Sbagliato and Prosecco. The balcony is always the best postion to enjoy your aperitivo which overlooks The Yarra River and has breathtaking views of the Melbourne’s beautiful city. Choose from a selection of classic tapas style hot plates, cured meats and roasted veggies. It’s the perfect way to start your evening before your main meal, as a pre or post theatre meal or just to catch up with friends. Prices vary from $15 -$20 depending upon your selection. * not available NYE and Christmas Day

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
