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

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

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!
