Twice within a week for us when attending concerts at the Hamer Hall next door. Likewise convenient for State Theatre and National Gallery, car parking, trams and Flinders Street station. Popular and a good idea to book. Menu mainly Italian but quite extensive: quality good, also the wine, available by the glass and reasonably priced. Waiting staff attentive. Just south... More

The breads were good, the bruschetta bog standard and needed more acidity. Mains across the table varied. The meatballs had... More

We ate here one evening this week and enjoyed the experience. It was very busy and we hadn't booked but we were still seated in a 'quieter' corner as requested. The staff were pleasant and attentive. We ordered a selection of antipasti with some advice from the server and the selection was fresh and tasty. This we followed with a... More

Came here with a group of girls. This place is more quantity than quality. And definitely overpriced for such average food. My food was really bland, pumpkin ravioli. The pasta was well over cooked so it was water logged. It was meant to be cooked in butter but I could not taste it and it looked more like a Chinese... More

Went to La Camera over the Easter weekend on a quick trip to Melbourne and found it to be a great little restaurant. We ordered a few different dishes and really enjoyed all of it and was good value to. The waitresses were fantastic, very friendly and attentive. Overall a great night!

I have been to La Camera on several times and have always been very pleased with the service and quality of the foo. From a meal for two to an 80th birthday, all events have been greatly enjoyed at this location. If you can get a table outside.

Rushing along Chapel St. Need quick breakfast at 11.30 am. Too late for McDonald's and thank goodness. Breakfast special still available here! 2 eggs poached on toast, plus bacon and a latte - $6.90. All served within 5 minutes and delicious. Perfect golden eggs; yolks flowing like lava over the mountainous toast. Crispy bacon. Pleasant staff. Table decor a bit... More
