Our waiter was fantastic. They have a deal that if you download their app and show them when you arrive you get special deals. However at the end of the meal I had to show them I had the app on my phone again and they took my phone away to show three manager. I didn't feel comfortable handing my unlocked phone to a stranger to have it walked around the restaurant. Other than this, I loved it. I go to this restaurant whenever I'm at southbank.
Hi Glennis, Sorry about the confusion as the app is new to us, but thanks so much for the feedback as we will mention this at our pep talks. Kindest regards, Paul Scidone Manager

Our table was under the covered veranda which was a lovely spot overlooking the Yarra River. Even though it was a very cold night, it was cosy and warm thanks to the gas heaters positioned along the wall. The service was great, as was the food. We had a Garlic and Herb Pizza, the Linguine Alla Pescatora, and the twice cooked Pork Belly, plus a couple of sweets which were all delicious. Will definitely be back again next time we are in Southbank.

Best food. Bruschetta was the best we've had in a long time. Loved the pizza and pasta dishes.

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
