Server was an older gentlemen and it was an effort for him to answer any menu questions. I ordered the shrimp and lobster fra diavlo. Unfortunately it smelled and tasted really bad. Seafood was not fresh. Not a good experience .

Service is outstanding. Perfect amount of attention without being intrusive. The ambiance is retro in a good way. It is like going back in time. Everything from the decor to the how the servers were dressed to the use of serving carts echoed back to a time when dining was dining not just going out to eat.
The food is very good true Italian with something for any taste.

Beautiful atmosphere, lovely staff. We’ll definitely return. We wish the meats were a little more seasoned but they were cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the vegetables and potatoes so much. We go here for the ambience and the quality waitstaff.

A great evening for some old school italian! Lovely staff and perfect place for a cozy fall/winter dinner.

The bar is a great spot to grab a drink before, and the views are pretty from the dining area. The food is delish! We had the mozzarella speacial and the meatballs. We had the tortellini and the penne vodka. both delish! and mango sorbet.

The staff is lovely. Very attentive and made you feel special. Manny was our waiter and he was so kind serving us.

Can't wait to return! Thank you!

Anytime I am looking for a place for dinner and meeting people from NJ or Phila. I suggest we eat here. It's an hour drive from my home and worth it.
The food and the service are always outstanding.

Food and service was excellent. Never the feeling of being rushed. Very accommodating with everything. We did sit next to two larger parties which were very loud. No fault of the establishment. Very satisfied with staff and service.

We were looking for a nice quiet enjoyable evening highlighted with good Italian food and boy did we find it! La Collina was everything we had hoped for. Beautiful venue, fantastic service and delicious food. My only criticism was our table. Would have preferred a table off to the side. We were seated in the middle of dining room. Felt we had made reservations far enough in advance that our sitting would have been better.

My wife and I have been wanting to try this place for sometime and we were glad we finally made it. The service was excellent. From the minute we walked in the door to picking up our car from the valet it was 5 star service. The food was top notch from the appetizers to the salad and entrees. The only thing we thought was just okay was the bread that came with dinner but really nothing to complain about. We can’t wait to go back to try out more from the menu.

The food is good, as usual. But, $42 for 2 soft shell grabs is crazy. The saying of don't order a special is true. Bottle of wine ordered not in stock but higher priced option is available. Two sprouts cut in half and 3 tiny pieces of a potato isn't what I would call a "side". Caesar salad over priced for the size. What happened?

Food was cold and not seasoned well. Both pasta dishes were bland. Meatballs seemed to be frozen and heated up in a microwave. The vodka sauce tasted like tomato soup. Food came out way to fast. We felt rushed the whole time and the price was way too high for the poor experience.

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
