La Collina Restaurant
Located just off the Schuylkill Expressway in Belmont Hills, La Collina boasts spectacular hilltop views. The bar offers a unique atmosphere with live entertainment and dancing on weekends. This gem is known as one of the most romantic restaurants on the Main Line.
La Collina specializes in fresh seafood and veal dishes. Its signature dish, Dover Sole, is a delicate, tasty fish that is uniquely grilled, and served tableside. In addition to our Dover Sole, our daily fresh-fish specials include Branzino, Norwegian Salmon, Pompano, Orata, soft-shell crabs, Langostina, and other delights from the sea, depending upon availability. We are also known for our veal sirloin, veal porterhouse, ossobuco, and chops.

Great food and wonderful selection. Comfortable environment
Food and service of restaurant part was wonderful and had a great experience. The bar part of it was just such a bad experience. There wasn’t that many people there but we were ignored over and over and were made to feel unwelcome when we finally did finally get service. They seemed mad we were sitting there. It was weird and uncomfortable and kind of ruined the exoerienxe
Excellent experience. Hadn’t been there in years and was exactly what was needed. Excellent food, and service was wonderful!
Sat outside on the porch. Wonderful soft shell crabs!!
Our favorite go to good time and great food. We like to sit in the bar and listen to Michael play the guitar.
Excellent service, friendly staff, and delicious food. Thank you for preparing my shrimp parma which was not on the menu. It was the best that I have ever eaten. We will be back. We saved our appetite for our dinner and we are so glad that we did. Your staff is very friendly and welcoming also. We have passed your establishment and said that one day we will have to check it out and I am glad that we finally made a reservation.
Wonderful old school dining experience from the moment the valet parks your car…felt like i went back in time…from the bar straight out of a scene from ‘Goodfellas’ to the dining area with its experienced and knowledgeable wait staff…the apps the meal the desserts and of course the well made cocktails you just can’t go wrong with this gem of a spot…i truly mean that…we can’t wait to go back!
Bartender was sorta anti-social, rude and inattentive. Left no tip for this dude. Otherwise, waitress service and food was outstanding. If you go here, have your drink at your table and don’t bother going to the bar unless you want to hear live music. Free valet service is outstanding. Great time!
Fantastic meal! Excellent service, and food. The ambiance and overall energy of the restaurant and enthusiasm for their craft were obvious. Every course was an experience that was better than the last. We will be returning!
Party of nine, including 2 preschoolers, accommodated perfectly. Salads, appetizers, entrees beautifully done and served. Two of us had soft-shell crabs, our favorites. Beverages and desserts also top-notch.
My meal veal parm was excellent. Other party members ordered seafood/pasta dishes - mediocre. Not enough seafood in their dishes and clams were dull and sandy. Loved the atmosphere. Service was very slow but we we were not in a hurry. I would try it again.
Our entire dining experience was superb! I have never had Dover sole Before and I think it might be my new favorite fish dish, I also loved the grilled octopus it was done perfectly and I know That can be tricky. Our waiter was great and even the valet parkers were really nice, it was a rainy night and they walked me to my car with a big umbrella. I will definitely be eating here more often !!
The servers were professional and attentive and, tho we lingered a bit over coffee and dessert, we were never made to feel rushed to finish our meal.
Always a pleasure to visit
Excellent service and outstanding food
Great food and attentive service and always with a smile
Birthday dinner was outstanding. Our waitress Alana couldn’t have been better. Whole night was awesome
Excellent food, excellent service and great experience - as it is every time. Looking forward to go back soon!
The valet parking super convenient- the dining service very nice - food absolutely delicious- the one thing that could’ve been better was the room temperature! Too warm. I should’ve mentioned it. Overall - very nice!
The risotto was a dish to end all dishes. I could eat it every day it was so incredible!! Definitely returning!!
Everything was perfect from the moment valet parked the car and had it ready to go immediately upon our exit. The food, service and overall experience was outstanding. It was our first time there and we will be back 👍👍
Great food/drinks and service! Thank you for an awesome birthday meal!
Very nice. My only complaint would be that it was a little too crowded and not all staff were wearing masks. We’re still in a pandemic. Otherwise, great experience.
This was our first time to this restaurant. The food was outstanding.
Our special birthday celebration was wonderful in every way! La Collins was the perfect venue.
Went late and kitchen seemed to be closing so felt a bit rushed
Used to love this place but…I understand things are different now due to the pandemic but this whole evening really sucked, nothing like it used to be. We had a res but showed up early, we got seated (before 8pm on a Saturday night) and were rushed to order because the kitchen was closing…we thought, “gee good thing we showed up a half hour earlier then our planned reservation.” About 20 mins later after we rushed our order and the house lights were turned up (signaling everyone to eat up and go) another table showed up and casually ordered. Confusing…also confusing was the level of rudeness from the waitress. Every response was snarky. We literally could not stand her and when do you have that kind of reaction to a server! They are always nice. The food also was bad, clams casino tasted like they’d turned after sitting out all day, crab meat in the pasta was spongy and watery-appeared to be imitation. Folks at La Collins, if you’ve been at it too long and the zest for being in the restaurant business is gone, just close. Don’t go down like this. You’re better then that.
A great culinary experience - one of our favorite restaurants!
Service was really good. Food was decent. We sat outside and probably should have asked to be moved inside because there were so many spiders above us dropping to the floor and hanging or crawling above us. It was honestly the reason we did not stay for dessert.
An old favorite. Still great., Food is excellent. Friendly service.
Delicious food and wonderful waitresses and waiters!
While most of the wait staff were attentive the dining experience overall was disappointing
Plates and glasses were cracked and chipped
The clams casino were tasteless
We received only four slices of mozzarella while the table next to us received a whole bulb
My Dover sole was way over priced and it was not filleted in front of me which is part of the experience
Also way too many bones
The Jewish apple cake was dry and flavorless
We were so excited to enjoy a nice dinner and left not happy
Good food and good knowledgeable service equals a good time
Great food. Soft shell crab special is the best
This was amazing. The food was worth every bite.
We love La Collina and are so glad to be back in their dining room with its crisp white tablecloths, old-works service, and classically prepared Italian dishes. It felt like a homecoming, if anyone in my family could cook that well!
Our go to for birthdays and anniversaries. Great food and attentive staff
Great food and great service!!!
