I've always passed this restaurant on the way to drop my son at Temple. We made reservations and stopped. You have to pay for valet parking, even though there was a spot right out front. The atmosphere is very nice, put we weren't impressed with the food for as much as we paid. It was $200 for 3 of us... More

We had lunch on Valentine's Day. The The restaurant was preparing for a busy evening. Service was good, food very tasty but nothing memorable, setting very nice. However, the heavy dishware, stainless cream pitcher and such didn't go with the tablecloths and rest of decor. Minestrone soup was watery and chocolate cake tasted refrigerated and stale, and bread was dry.... More

Everything was good from appetizers to salads to desserts. I had a chicken Parmesan entree and it was light and well prepared. Again, server was attentive and great to chat with with... More

We began visiting Philadelphia every few months on business travelling from Northeast PA. We spotted LaCollina from the dreaded Schoolkill Expressway and decided tried it. Easy off and on. For approaching 3 years now every time we go to Philadelphia we stop at LaCollina for lunch or dinner depending on the time of day. The food and service are consistent... More

Nice Tuesday night evening "elegante" meal during late December, was quite crowded but lucky we were a little early and were seated in the rotunda room overlooking the parking, train, expressway, river and eastern side. Was actually quite nice. I had pollo Collina and my wife had the Dover Sole, which would have been prepared table side, except for the... More

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...
