Everything about this restaurant is perfect! The atmosphere is lovely. You really feel like you are enjoying fine dining, as you are! The wait staff is excellent. The food is outstanding! Each dish is prepared and presented in a lovely fashion. The noise level is low. This is a neighborhood gem, and I am glad we found it!

My wife and I visited La Collina for the first time last week. We were very pleased with the selections. Me, being an Italian, I was very happy with all the choices on the menu. Both of us ordered Pesce Freso alla Griglla (Grilled seafood combination). We will definitely be heading back.

We had a family dinner at La Collina on Wednesday night and it was delicious. The restaurant sits up on a hill and has a nice twinkling light view. We ordered some chianti and cosmopolitans to start the evening. The salads and specialty bread were a nice treat. The gnocchi, veal scallopini, chicken parmesan and the salmon were the favorites...

We shared appetizers of soft shell crabs... More

We live in Manayunk and my fiance and I have driven by La Collina for years and always wanted to go. I checked the reviews extensively, and they're all really positive, so we decided to go. The service is VERY attentive, which actually was a bit of a turn off for me. They had us sit in the middle of... More
