    Beef carpaccio was fantastic. However, I would say it was overdressed with lemon, which overpowered the beef flavor (and I LOVE lemon.) On the other hand, I very much appreciated the amount of fresh arugula that came with the dish. I feel like the table side caesar salad for 2 was not worth the hype. It was also overdressed, and the lettuce did not seem very fresh (which was completely opposite the arugula served with the carpaccio.) We ordered the Strozzapretti Norcina for our entree and it was fantastic. Otherwise, we were greeted immediately by a hostess when we arrived and our table was ready at the time of our reservation. Unfortunately, we did arrive 15 minutes early for our reservation and attempted to get a cocktail at the bar while we waited for our table and the bar staff was so busy/overwhelmed that no one greeted us, let along took a drink order from us before the hostess came to seat us at our table. Overall, the place seems romantic, but is so loud it detracts from its romantic ambience. No one and nothing is perfect. I will definitely give it a second shot.

    La Collina always has great food and service. Our last visit was no different. They made a birthday dinner even more special. It is a small, intimate place, so it can get a little noisy, but it is part of the ambiance. Don't pass up trying this gem.

    The place is hidden and if you were not looking for it, you wouldn't see it. Food was outstanding! I had the lollipop lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection. My point of comparisson for lamb chops is the restaurant Fiola in DC and La Collina's chops were better. My wife had the salmon and I tasted it. It was ok, but nothing to write home about (farm raised salmon). If I could recommend something to La Collina it would be a "no compromise" ingredient list for their awesome dishes and better gluten free menu options, like real good gluten free bread for the antipasto. You'd get a wider client pool that way, believe me.
    La CollinaResponded on April 2, 2024
    Hi...glad you had a great overall experience. The gluten free crackers is a nice option we offer our guest as most places don't offer any glutten free options for bread. When it comes to gluten free options other than bread, we have a plethora of options. We offer gluten free pasta which in turn makes every pasta option available to our gluten free patrons. Also, most of the proteins can be made gluten free upon request. All the best, cheers!

    Unfortunately, we had a 50 minute wait with a reservation for a table of two. Needless to say we were very disappointed. However, our service once we were seated was outstanding. And the food will bring us back. We just know we need to book extra time into our evening for an hour wait after our reservation time. No way you can go there without a reservation. I can’t imagine how long the wait would be without a reservation.

    Disappointing. Prior experiences were much better. Octopus appetizer was flavorful but very little octopus. Wreck fish was rubbery vs flaky. Seafood pasta did not have a lot of seafood and the seafood it did have was marginal tasting. Perhaps other items are better but I will certainly not recommend the seafood. Expensive and not good.

    Don, our server, was excellent. My veal scallopini was good, but I’ve had veal at other restaurants that was more tender. My wife said her salmon entree smelled fishy and she didn’t finish it. The Caccio e Peppe was very good.

    We have not had such a fabulous meal out in years. This was our first visit. Our waiter Fabio was fantastic! The food was so authentic like our parents used to make. We had the octopus and brussel sprout appetizer which was amazing, we had the Caesar salad ,each of fish entree, and dessert. It was all excellent! They also have a wonderful wine list to choose from. We will definitely be back!

    It was a lovely presentation and actual proteins were well prepared. Slightly shocked at the price of both appetizers and entrees considering our portions were extremely small. Extremely. It was obvious they plated with extra accompaniments (I.e, greens,blistered tomatoes) to make the presentation seem more robust. 2 small shrimp and a lot of garnish was borderline insulting.

    You know the saying "There's no place like home?" That's how I feel when I go to La Collina. It's like being on a long vacation and coming back to the comfort of your own home. The staff is like being with family, the food is like a recipe only your grandmother would make, and the overall experience is top notch. It does not matter what you order at this restaurant, it's always fantastic in quality and quantity. 5-Star experience, always

    Very romantic and authentic, however our meal took 3 hours (almost an hour before we even received our appetizer). Service was good but overall I felt it was overpriced. I'd certainly recommend this restaurant but know you will spend $100+ per person.

    First time since Silver Spoon. Overall, I enjoyed the experience. A bit loud, but food was tasty. Super expensive for what you get. $170 for 2 people (app/ entrees/2 drinks). Think they could easily knock off $10 per entree and still make bank. $35 for my pasta dish was high IMO. Might come back, but not a given due to value received.
