    Dinner was delish. This place never disappoints. I love the spinach salad with the grilled eggplant and the seafood risotto with wine sane was perfectly cooked. I can’t wait to go back! Oh and the warm baked bread that arrives to the table for free is anitger added touch. La Collins is a neighborhood GEM!

    We had a great meal. Our first time, we’re from out of town(NYC and So Cal). Food was good and made to order, nice and hot (temp). We were with an Italian couple and there were no complaints; everyone enjoyed their food.

    The food was excellent and we ordered two desserts. We had Insalata Della Casa, Fettuccine Alla Salmone, Osso Buco, Seafood Pasta, Tiramisu, and chocolate cake with ice cream. So stuffed. It was very busy however we were taken good care of by our server. The only off putting thing was when we were about to order dessert, the "hostess" came by and asked if we wanted anything else. When we said yes and told her what we wanted for dessert she said to the party waiting that we were not leaving yet. I thought she could have handled it a little better instead of making us feel bad for not leaving. She was not discreet at all in that we heard her every word.

    Had a special guest and we all went to LaCollina and had wonderful time. Just like home. Rose always does an outstanding job in making everyone feel special. The food is outstanding. I can always count on our favorite dishes and you must try the appetizer polenta with mushrooms.

    Food was delicious. Only weak link was the Caesar’s salad. Excellent waiter. Comfortable, not cold restaurant. Old school Italian decor. Not a foo foo place. Polenta with the brown gravy is a must have. Will go back to further explore the menu.

    Excellent food and service. Friendly, efficient and helpful servers. Delicious and beautifully presented dishes, and good value overall. Comfortable seating, charming decor, and pleasant atmosphere. This is only our second time here since a month ago. It is a favorite restaurant of our family and friends, and is reasonably priced.

    The food is always good, but my lamb shank was a little tough in some parts. Not too much, but the last time I had it, was falling off the bones delicious. The service was better this time due to more waiters. Our waiter was very efficient. It think, it would have been nice to have had the host/owner go around the tables saying Merry Christmas and thank you for coming. That would be a nice touch. She's a little gruff and direct, not like a friendly host. But, I did see her clearing the tables and helping out, so she was very busy. Overall, we love La Collina and it's on our rotation of special occasion restaurants. We used to go frequently in the 90's, but my Mother passed away, and we went for a while without going out, so we forgot about the restaurant, but we are back.

    Delicious food from the bread served with oil & roasted garlic to the main dish. The atmosphere was lovely and there were no tv’s on, no loud music. Perfect place to have a wonderful meal and converse with your guest – which is becoming rare in today’s dining experience. The only minor drawback – parking is difficult.

    Sadly the lasagna was not warm and had to be sent back. The second plate of lasagna had very mushy noodles. Either the cook either doesn’t know what he is doing or he just doesn’t have an aptitude for cooking

    La Collina is a charming neighborhood restaurant. My sister invited me and the dinner was delicious. We shared the fried calamari appetizer; I had a pasta with shrimp and eggplant, and my sister had the special osso buco with polenta. The portions are generous and so fresh tasting, and the service was excellent.
