The Italian Yum Cha was excellent -so many choices to sample, from pizza to pastas to meats to desserts. A great time for groups - we were there with friends. Hope there'll be another in the future

Great friendly staff and excellent food

dined on Sat, 22 Jul 2017

Staff very proactive about checking that we would be on time for our theatre time slot, which was great. And while all the food was good, the garlic-herb pizza was absolutely brilliant (and we don't say that lightly).
Hi Kal, Thanks for your rave review on our garlic pizza. What makes it is the unique base and all our pizzas are on the same page. When it comes off to the starting the night, it's a great entrée, but I would also encourage you to taste our grilled calamari and beef arancini. After all these years at La Camera, I still find it hard to decide and that's why I have all three :). Kindest 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
