Review - La Camera

I always enjoy the balcony seating at La Camera. The view of the river with boats cruising past is relaxing. The green trees near the balcony add to the nice feeling. Wanting an early dinner on a Saturday, we had no trouble getting a table without a booking. At other times though, it would be best to book. Particularly if they have their special weekday lunch menus on.

We ordered Rigatoni Pollo, Coscia di Polla alla Cacciatore, Spaghetti Bolognese and Il Gambero Pizza. My favourite is the Rigatoni Pollo - the slow roasted chicken pieces are simply great with the cream sauce. Close behind is the Il Gambero Pizza - the size never fails to impress - the plate disappears under the pizza and the pizza looks like it is sitting on the table! I like seafood pizza and the Il Gambero has good sized prawns. The chicken in the tasty Coscia di Polla alla Cacciatore is so tender it falls off the bone with a light touch of the fork. The Spaghetti Bolognese comes with a large amount of meat and sauce - I find the sauce a bit too sour and would have preferred more spaghetti to balance the meat and sauce.

Overall, a very good meal in nice surroundings.
