La Camera Southgate


"An Italian restaurant with Italian hospitality, La Camera delivers warm and friendly service and an authentic Italian dining experience which celebrates the smells, tastes and comfort of a country-style Italian home"

Gastrology, 7 July 2015

Nestled amongst riverside treetops on Southgate’s mid level, with stunning views over Melbourne's Yarra River and iconic Flinders Street Station, La Camera is a touch of Italy right on Melbourne’s door step.

Food is life

The family owned and operated restaurant offers an array of authentic Italian dishes, including unique Roman-style pizzas, 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.

Whether you’re after a quick bite before work, a venue to host a business lunch, delicious casual dining in a central location or a quick 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”.

Recommended dish: Gnocchi oxtail matched to a Heathcote Tar and Roses Shiraz
