Description: La Camera Italian Restaurant Southbank Melbourne offers a welcoming environment where you can enjoy authentic, Italian food, served by friendly efficient staff right in the heart of the Southgate Shopping Precinct. 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. Nestled amongst riverside treetops on Southgate’s mid level, La Camera boasts two balconies with stunning views over The Yarra River and iconic Flinders Street Station. The interior is adorned with vintage black-and-white photographs depicting the history of the family that has owned and operated the restaurant since it opened in 2000. La Camera Southgate offers an array of authentic Italian dishes including unique Roman-style pizzas, authentic Pappardelle Ox Cheek from Trastevere-Rome and by far the most delectable Tiramisu in town. The emphasis is on quality ingredients, and fresh seasonal produce. La Camera is a touch of Italy right on Melbourne’s door step located in the sport and entertainment precinct and within walking distance to Melbourne’s most popular attractions such as The Arts Centre, Hamer Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre, Federation Square, MCG, Rod Laver & Hisense Arenas, Aami Park and Eureka Skydeck. La Camera is the perfect place for your next celebration, romantic evening out, and the best place to watch Melbourne’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display. Relax, unwind and escape, make La Camera your room…where, as is the case with all Italians … “FOOD IS LIFE”.

Always busy, with a great vibe, handy to the Arts Centre, better-than-average food and quick service. Recommend the outside terrace overlooking teh Yarra and Flinders Street Station, even on a cold night (heating and shelter provided).

We were seated at a table on the balcony amongst storage of chairs, heatres etc. The service was good but when the meals arrived we were all (three of us) a little disappointed; quality average and the salads were not entirely the ingrediants on the menu.

We thank you for your response and appreciate the feedback. We do have a problem with storage at the moment and we are trying to sort that out.

In regards to your dishes, not sure what happened there and whether you let our waiter know. We always re do the dish if a customer is dissatisfied.

Happy to discuss and give you a complimentary voucher. Please call 9699 3600 and ask for Paul or leave your number and I will call you asap.

Get a balcony seat and enjoy watching life on the river as you tuck into a delicious bolognaise. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Thanks for your feedback. The balcony is the best place to be. The spag Bol is very good. Nearly as good as mums.

Try our gnocchi next time....they are as good as mums!

Highly recommend the mid-week breakfasts, which are all around $7. Excellent coffee too and nice to sit outside overlooking the river.
