Dinner on Saturday night

The food was delicious. It was very busy which I think made the service average! Pricing was competitive. Nice setting for dinner.

We regularly dine at La Camera and generally enjoy the experience and the food. It can be a bit variable but on the whole good. I do miss my favorite dish of Salmon on artichoke risotto which was always fabulous!

service was brilliant ,in particular our personal waiter. Food was good and hot . when you arrive they ask if you are going to a show for fast service or if you are here for the night, and serve the food accordingly. The special of the night was desert .

The lamb shanks were ok as was the chicken cacciatore. One of us ordered the amatriciana pasta with bacon. There was maybe a desert spoon of bacon in the whole dish with the portion being very small anyway compared to the other meals. When asked how were our meals we mentioned the amatriciana. There was basically no response or discount... More

Who said Monday evenings are dull and boring? On a short break in the buzzing city of Melbourne we dined at La Camera. We tasted a range of Shiraz, serenaded by jazz, dined on the balcony and indulged in creamy risotto. The waiter even took a couple of great photo shots for us. Far better than my amateur photography!

One of my favourite restaurants on Chapel Street. Family owned and run. Good range of food. I especially enjoy the veal dishes and chicken Parma. All the meals I've had were tasty and beautifully presented and the coffee was just to my liking.

Ok so I went to this restaurant this afternoon and managed to score a nice outdoor table. It was 6.25. At 6.27 the waitress came over. I asked if it was still happy hour (supposed to finish at 6.30). The response "sorry guys". My friends laughed it off but i thought it was wrong. As we were here prior to... More

It all works together very well. The restaurant is calm and warm, the staff are not stressed, and the owner Luci looks over everything that happens. The Amatriciana is excellent, as is pizza and tortellini. Prompt service, good drinks, and very good value. If you have had a big day at work on a cold winter's day in Prahran, this... More

My husband and I rolled up for lunch just as some event had finished at Hamer Hall - there was a queue out the door! Luckily we had booked and a cosy outdoor table was found for us out on the balcony but I wasn't expecting too much as the staff were seriously under the pump. Amazingly we were attended... More
