A gem in Belmont Hills. Really good food, good prices and classy service. And a great dessert cart to boot.
Terrific place for great Italian food! You will love it!
AMAZING food and service. Already recommended this place to like 15 people! Can’t wait to go back!!
Thank you so much for this review, and for recommending us to your friends. We strive for this experience to be had by every guest that visits us.
We have been to La Collina about 5 times now and appreciate the delicious food and attentive service provided every time. If you are craving something that is not on the menu all you have to do is ask and they will put it together for you. Fish specials, gnocchi, linguine and clams are all delicious. Veal dishes outstanding. It is a small place hidden in the corner of a mall, but well worth seeking out.
Always a great experience! We have dined here multiple times and have always had a great meal! Service is spectacular!
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. This is our goal for every guest. See you again very soon.
All four pasta dishes were over cooked and waiter had very poor timing. A long wait between salad and entree. No reason to return.
So sorry to hear about your unusual experience. Please contact us at info@lacollinarochester for more details and so that we can make things right on your next visit.
Please note, we’ve had wonderful experiences at this restaurant. This particular visit was for Valentine’s Day. We had been promised a special table only to not even be recognized when we arrived and seated at a community area surrounded by others, the place is very loud on weekends (weeknights it’s like you rented the space for yourself), the wedge salad was chopped with orange rind, and my main entree came out as spaghetti when it was to be linguine. I was told they “ran out”. Never asked beforehand if I would like another selection, etc. When my husband asked them to redo the dish, the guy admitted they didn’t run out and they could make more, they just opted not to. Very frustrating. We left and had no Valentine dinner, but we were charged. Not a good experience at all.
Thank you for being a regular and for this review. We are very sorry for your unfortunate experience during Valentine's day. Valentines day is the busiest day of the year for us, and to be fair to all of our clients we do not (and did not that night) promise any specific tables. We are sorry that the linguine vongole came with spaghetti instead of linguine, and that it ruined your whole experience. Please visit us again so we can make things right and earn a 5 star review from your next visit.
La Collina had great food and fantastic service! We went there for Valentines Day. We both had the filet and it was prepared perfectly. The hostess gave my girlfriend a rose on the way out, a very nice touch.
Thank you so much for your great review and for your business. We look forward to serving you again.
Went for Valentine’s Day. We had a very small table for two that seemed like it was squeezed in to accommodate one more table for the occasion. Servers and other guests were constantly squeezing by and brushing us. Not the kind of intimacy we look for in a Valentine’s Day meal. The service and meal were good, but there was nothing exceptional about the experience, and at the price point, it left us slightly disappointed. With so many great Italian restaurants nearby, this didn’t hold up.
We are sorry you did not have a perfect experience. Valentine's day was the business day of the year of us, and in an effort to accommodate all our patrons we might have lacked a little in intimacy. We would love to have to back for a better experience any other day of the year for a better and more intimate setting.
Love this restaurant! Wonderful service and food. On Wednesdays there is a singer to entertain patrons.
Wonderful experience all around. Delicious food, great wine recommendations and the best Negroni cocktail! We were impressed with the service and attention to details. Looking forward to returning!!
So happy to hear about your amazing experience. This is what keeps us going and makes us want to improve every night. Salute!
We’d definitely recommend it!
Great little place with nice ambiance in the same place that Silver Spoon used to be. Some food was amazing but pesto seemed under flavored. Service was very friendly but a bit slow. Overall, good opacity I will return to.
The 4 of us had a Birthday celebration dinner Friday night. The service was amazing. I wish I could recall our waiters name, but he was outstanding. The food was amazing as was the wine selection. This is one of our favorites, hands down. Don’t let the location fool you! Love this place.
Thank you very much for the great review. We look forward to your next dining experience with us!
Fantastic staff, service was top notch, food was amazing!! Couldn’t have asked for a better evening!
Great to hear... This is what we strive for every night. Thank you!!!
Took my 8 yr old daughter on a date with Daddy. Everybody was very accommodating and friendly. Food was excellent. Maybe I’ll even take my wife there. 😉
Great to serve you and your little one :). Can't wait to meet the whole family...see you soon.
We loved La Collina. Started with a very fresh bruschetta. My husband and I took the waiter, Dan's excellent recommendation and ordered the Pinot Noir perfect for the Caesar salad, spaghetti bolognaise, pasta with mushroom Ragu which we shared. All dishes were nicely portioned and delicious. Lastly, we highly recommend the Tiramisu as it was one of the best we've had to finish off a lovely dinner. Service was attentive. We never had to look for our waiter. The ambiance is white table cloths and soft lighting and live music makes this restaurant a keeper We'll be back with Friends.
Thank you so much for dining with us and for this great review. We will see you guys soon!
The food and service was excellent. Too noisy for a nice dinner conversation. Above the restaurant is a gym and we could hear them dropping weights on the floor with a big bang .
Thank you for dining with us and for the review Ronald. We have addressed the noise issue with our neighbors upstairs. Hope to see you at the restaurant soon.
Extremely slow service and mediocre food for the price. Took 3 hours from start to finish way too long.
Sorry to hear about your unusual and unfortunate experience. Please contact us if you'd like to provide further details from your experience. Thank you.
Authentic Italian food with a comfortable atmosphere. Best spaghetti my son has ever had!
Thank you so much....looking forward to seeing you guys again.
Very extensive menu staying close to authentic upscale italian food. New Year's eve service was outstanding with very pleasant ambience.
Great to hear Sebastian. Come and visit us soon.
This is by far THE BEST new restaurant in Rochester! Been here several times the food is consistently amazing as is the service and atmosphere!!!
Great to hear Tina. It is great to be able to serve you. We'll see you soon.
Nice selection of dishes plus they were able to create something different for one of our diners who was interested in something that wasn't on the menu. All the food was tasty and presented nicely. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Ambiance in the restaurant is very nice.
Even though this is a new establishment, you would have thought they had been there for years. The owners are extremely friendly with the customers and the food was top notch!!
Thank you so much. Hope to see you soon.
Amazing food! Great atmosphere
“Energetic” is an understatement when it comes to describing the noise level. It was downright impossible for our small table of four to speak at a conversational volume. Our table was two tables away from the bar and the entire open space behind the bar seats was packed full of people. All waking for their tables.
We were ignored as we awaited the hostess having a drawn out conversation with a woman going over the iPad seating chart. I’m certain this woman wasn’t an employee as she had a purse on. Without exaggeration, 4 minutes passed before we were acknowledged. A very poor first impression.
On to more positive matters. Our server was wonderful! The complementary appetizer of eggplant caponata with four slices of crisp bread was delicious and generous.
The cocktails were wonderful and they made me one they weren’t familiar with (a French 75), but made it spot-on perfect.
Two apps, smoked salmon and a burrata cheese eggplant rollatini (may not be what called that on the menu, but it was that shape), were all delicious.
My main was an app of blue mussels in a light tomato broth. They were tiny little mussels and the dish was just okay. The table side made Caesar salad was delicious! A different flavor than typical Caesar salads but VERY good! Our guests had a wedge and a house salad and they were both liked as well.
Two salmon filet specials were ordered and served overcooked: well done. No one was asked how they would like their salmon prepared. The other diner had the porcini mushrooms with fettuccini & loved it.
The wine list isn’t exceptional; it had more new world wines, not older fine vintages & it needs more Italian wine choices and less California wines. Wine experts wouldn’t be impressed.
The former restaurant that was in this space for years relocated to DWTN Rochester. Comparing them in the categories of food, ambiance, noice level, we much prefer the other restaurant. But service here WINS! Prices at both being the same, we won’t return here.
Thank you for dining with us and the detail review. We have address the issues you mention on the review such as the guest greeting and the Salmon temperature. We would love to see you back and earn a 5 star review from your next experience.
Exceptional food and dining experience. One of the better restaurants in Rochester and definitely high-end Italian fare. Everything from cocktails, to appetizers, pasta dishes and main courses were wonderfully prepared. Definitely not an inexpensive night out, but worth it. We will return!
Thank you for your business and the great review. Come and see us soon.
Great food, terrific service well time between apps, dinner and drinks
Thank you so much!!!
Never disappoints!! Delicious!!
I went to dinner with a friend to catch up. I won't return for 2 reasons; the pasta was mushy and soaked in sauce. The flavor was okay. My second reason is! They added the tip to the bill with out letting us know. I'm surprised a restaurant would do this for a party of 2. We almost tipped on top of the tip! Our waiter was good and deserved a good tip, I just would have liked to been informed of the policy
Hi, we take your review very personal and very seriously. I have your itemized bill in front of me and I do not see you heaving any pasta nor do I see any tip added to your bill. It is our policy not to add gratuity on parties of 6 or less. I see you had 2 bottles of Peroni, 2 glasses of Quilt Cabernet, and as far as food goes I only see a Di Mare salad and gilled octopus If you wish to provide more detail about your experience please feel free to email me at info@lacollinarochester
Simply amazing food, service and overall experience.
We have been very pleased with the overall experience and cuisine . It's our new recommendation to friends and family.. They are pleased also. I wish there was a bread basket, but then maybe not. Keep up the good work.
Mary, we strive for this feedback from every guest. It is very rewarding to read about your experiences. We will see you very soon. Thank you for your continued business!
Nice addition to Rochester. Interesting and authentic menu. Top notch service. We will definately be back.
Thank you for dining with us. Hope to see you very soon.
Love this place!! Quickly becoming one of my favorites!!
Great to hear. Come and see us soon!
Hubby had the filet w Rosemary and I had Veal w lemon...we had mussel appetizer and all was fabulous. Desserts looked phenomenal but we were full and passed on it. Loved the nice big crescent shaped bar (same as when Silver Spoon was there).
Thank you so much for your business and the great review. Hope to see you very soon!
Food was excellent. Restaurant was loud, and the tables pretty tightly arranged. Food and service were enough for us to back again.
Thank you for you business and the great review Robert. Hope to see you very soon!
You know you are at an authentic Italian restaurant when they very much recommend skipping the Parmesan on a seafood pasta dish.
Great little detail you mention there Joe. Thank you for your business and the review. Hope to see you soon.
