My colleague always said pizza here is very nice. I try pasta with prawn and chilli oil this time. It S delicious! The entree is also very nice. We also order dessert. I do recommend their pomegranate gelato. You won't be disappointed. The service is excellent.

Great Breakfast Average Coffee. From an Italian restaurant I expected better coffee and I had breakfast on two occasions so it wasn't just a one off, that being said the service is good and the breakfast is fantastic. I know its only a casual cafe but i wish the waitress wore a more professional uniform than just jeans. Great views... More

Very friendly staff, good service, food was lovely. Great for before or after a show. They ask you if you need to be out by a certain time for your show.

The food here is consistently good. We had a lamb salad and spatchcock. Both dishes were succulent, good flavours and presentation. Staff were friendly and efficient. We will certainly be back.

We had an absolutely lovely dinner. I've been dining there for years and although the menu hasn't changed much, the restaurant has really freshened up a lot. The staff were simply delightful, every single one of them! Beaming smiles from everyone at every interaction. They give 100% to every customer. The food was exquisite and delivered really quickly; we couldn't... More

Reserved a table in advance, but couldn't sit outside. Staff at reception were slightly arrogant and not overly welcoming. Admittedly it was a Friday night, but the place was so noisy I thought I was in a night club. The only good things were the food and the wait staff (at least they were friendly). Won't be going back in... More

Hi Stuart, Thanks for your feedback and sorry if the staff at the front did not seem very welcoming. I am hoping it was just a case of frantic Friday and not arrogance as that is not what we are all about, infact the very opposite. Always willing to give patrons a balcony seat if [possible but when there are... More

A friend and I visited here for dinner. We sat out on the balcony ... lovely view and friendly staff. Good meal. Plenty of options. They also have nights where you can listen to light opera etc ... need to book.

Had dinner here on Sunday afternoon with friends. The food, service and staff were all excellent. We have been here on many occasions and it never lets us down. We also have a yearly reunion at La Camera with people that we met on our 2014 Italian Trafalgar tour (some traveling from interstate). Being from Italian background I was asked... More

Always tricky what to expect at such a hot spot. Just middle of a food center so I my expectations where not that high. Conclusion we made a good choice, the anti pasti where good, the pasta of my wife very good, the pizza Special of the day not so special (for 28$..). The deserts together with some good coffee...

Hi there, Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. Great to hear you enjoyed most of the night and I do apologise for the very expensive pizza special. I could understand it if it was loaded with prawns, but yes I am with you, a tad overpriced. Kindest regards, Paul Scidone Manager More
