Everything was outstanding. We will return many times.
We had a romantic dinner there. The service, food selection,and drinks were great. The waitress was very friendly and provided help in my wife’s selections. The food looked as good as it tasted. There was a large dessert cart with great selection.
We had six people, One dish was cold two dishes were sent back not tasting right and my Aragosta Fra'Diavolo was great. The Gnocchi Bolognese was incredible. It looked like a lot of people were enjoying their food, it might of been a freak issue.
Went out for a Post - Valentines days dinner. Food was excellent as always.
I usually love La Collina. Last night I ordered the pasta special that was described as having lobster and shrimp. Unfortunately there was no lobster and one tiny shrimp, it was just a plate of pasta with halved tomatoes. Very disappointing. Fortunately the rest of our group all enjoyed their meals. Our waitress was lovely and the service good. Will order off the menu next time.
valentines. but is great fir everythinh
My wife and I, like many other reviewers, have passed this restaurant many times, while on I-76. We often talked about having dinner there. On Valentine's Day 2018, we were able to cross it off the bucket list. We arrived and were greeted by two men (maybe a dad/son team) at a makeshift valet stand. Both men were dressed a little too casually given the atmosphere of the restaurant. We checked in at the host stand, and were seated promptly. A waitress approached our table, and was rudely pushed away by a waiter (Mario). Mario was insistent that we were his table. We were never given a drink menu/wine list, which apparently you must ask for. Upon ordering our wine, solely by varietal, dinner menus were brought to the table. There were plenty of excellent options. We started with an order of the fried calamari. As for entrees, my wife ordered the Zuppa di Pesce, and I ordered the Linguine con Pesce. Both, the appetizer and entrees, were very good. While we were enjoying our meals, we overheard another table call Mario out on an $8 discrepancy on their check, which eventually was rectified. We then ordered a red velvet pastry to go, and asked for our check. Mario brought our check and dropped it on the table. I checked his math, which appeared to be correct ($120.53). I gave him a credit card, and off he went to swipe it. When he came back, the credit card signature slip showed a total of $128.53, an $8 discrepancy. I asked Mario about the difference, to which he responded by pointing at the eight and repeating, "That's a zero, not an eight!". It most definitely was an eight, as you can see in the attached photo. He initially refused to fix it, at which time I asked to speak with a manager. Mario said, "I'll take it and show a manager." I insisted that I wanted to speak with the manager personally. A few moments later, a manager arrived... sided with me... and corrected the check. I firmly believe that something fishy was going on. Beware.
I was so excited to finally visit La Collina. I had heard the place was amazing and have always wanted to go there. I was so disappointed. First, the tables are so close together you are pretty much sitting with whoever is at the next table. It is so loud you can’t have a conversation at a normal level. The waiter was miserable and (I have never seen this before in any restaurant) when he cleared my husband’s plate, he leaned right over me to reach across the table to grab the plate as I was still eating - almost hitting me in the face with his elbow. Who does that? Even servers at Chili’s know to clear dishes from the patron’s side. If my Uncle Georgio was there, he would have taught that waiter some manners and stuck his fork in his hand! You never reach across the table in front of someone - that’s just rude! The food was mediocre. I ordered the Risotto with seafood and the risotto was more like Minute Rice in fish broth. Not creamy at all and lacking taste. Where was the cheese people??? I’m Italian and come from a long line of great Italian cooks, so food is a passion for me. La Collina left me lukewarm, much like my husband’s meal which was barely warm when it reached the table. He said it was okay in the taste department but nothing to write home about. He felt bad because he had eaten there before a few times for business and the food was always good so he thinks maybe they got a new Chef. All in all, it was like Graceland to me. A place you have to visit once in your lifetime but its a let down, been there-done that kinda place and I don’t have any desire to go back.
One of the worst meals that I have had in a long time. The wine selection is very poor. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Nine of us for dinner Saturday evening after a performance in center city. From the pleasant gentleman handling car valet to the friendly and professional host, to the wonderful and professional servers, La Collina really excels at making you feel like a wanted guest in their home. Food and service very good. You can count on La Collina. Thank you again!!
I have noticed LaCollina while drive on 76 for past 25 years but never stopped by.
A friend and I decided to try it and it is an experience. I would not recommend this
for FINE dining, but absolutely recommend it for a good meal and wonderful
Good food, excellent service and nice ambiance as well as a bit pricey
Wonderful Italian food. They have BYOB on Sunday. It is somewhat pricey however. Service and food are excellent.
Food here is always great, but we felt we were rushed by our waiter. 8:15 reservation, ushered to the bar, seated by 8:40. Told waiter we wanted to enjoy our drinks and appetizers and order entrees later, came back in a few minutes "to take our entrée orders". Everything came pretty fast. Guess they don't like to stay late.
Love this restaurant, it is a classic Old world dining experience. Delicious food, exquisite service and romantic ambiance.
