I always enjoy dining at La Collina. We often bring visiting relatives here and we always seem to have a warm, festive evening of it.

This has always been a neighborhood
This has always been a neighborhood favorite for us. Food is always fresh and so very tasty. Staff are attentive to your needs and we always feel like we are special customeers. Menu is varied so there is something for everyone. It has remained constantly good all through it's tenure in Millbrae.

Wonderful way to spend Mother's Day
I went with a group of 6 people. 4 adults 2 teens. Everyone ordered a pasta dish accept one person ordered a salad. All of the pasta dishes were fantastic but the salad special of the day was very under whelming, it did not have a lot to it. There is no children's menu at the restaurant so beware if attending with childeren. I ordered a Cosmo with dinner, it was terrible/ to strong. All the deserts were fantastic. The quaint atmosphere is very appealing. The seeing staff were very nice yet nor very attentive. So if you looking for a place for a quite romantic dinner I would la Collina .

Will Be Back
I was a little concerned when we checked in, as the host seemed a bit gruff. Fortunately, we had a great waiter. Food was very good. Drinks were reasonable. We will be back.

We were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their food. They split the salad for the couples without a problem. Prices very reasonable and served mixed drinks as well as wine. Waiter was very pleasant and did not rush us. It is a great place to take your time and eat and talk. The crowd was definitely older so not sure if a family with young children would feel comfortable.

Adorable Restaurant in Millbrae!
What a cute neighborhood gem. We started with drinks which were made to perfection. Followed by Insalata Balsamico, a nice mixture of greens with artichokes, gorgonzola cheese and balsamic vinegar dressing. Main course was a delicious Capellini al Pomodoro. I have had Pomodoro in other places but La Collina got it right! Fresh ingredients, spectacular flavors, excellent service! Save room for dessert! Oh yes, I will be back there!

Great Authentic Itilian
We didn't know what to expect but we took a chance. It was amazing from the second we walked in the door. The smell and the family feeling. We were made welcome immediately. We brought our own wine and had a great meal! Will definitely recommend to friends.

Great experience. Even better
Great experience. Even better because the cranky owner was not there and the help was actually friendly and smiling!

This was our first time at La Collina, and it certainly will not be our last. We were there for a very special occasion, and the staff was very accommodating. Service was timely and professional. The food was very delicious as well. Between the two of us we had the cream of asparagus soup, a cesar salad, the seafood ravioli, the veal parmigiana, and for dessert we shared the flan.

old style italian done right
Old fashioned ambiance, with food to match (in a good way!). Veal Piccata and Marsala, calamari steaks, pastas with a variety of sauces, lamb shanks and more. Everything very tasty. Vegys cooked perfectly as well.

Didn't know what to expect, but were quite pleased. Fantastic food in a classic Italian atmosphere. Service was very good considering how busy it was (6:30 on a Saturday night). Parking can be hard to find, so allow some time for that.

This was a great find while vacationing in the San Francisco area. Was within walking distance of our hotel, also an easy cab ride too. Food was wonderful, fun, fresh and quality ingredients were used. Tried to visit again with our kids showed up, but it was late in the evening (9:30) on a Wednesday so perhaps another time......but it was a great surprise to our time out there!

The food was great, service was awesome and the environment was perfect. It was my first time there and would definitely go back again.

Delicious food but the waiter could have been a bit friendlier and his service was slow. The person that served the bread, water and food was quicker than our waiter. Another waiter took over and he was more pleasant. Overall we had a nice time. However I would recommend having Italian music playing. It was dead silent.

My wife and I were on a brief visit to the Bay area and used Open Table to find this restaurant. We didn't know much about the area and were a bit skeptical because of the restaurant's location. However, we were extremely pleased - by the food, by the service, and by the charm of the place. A true neighborhood gem!
