It was my anniversary dinner and my experience was not that great! It was my husbands first time there, since we live nearby we decided to give it a try. The service was horrible to say the least and rushed. We felt unwelcome throughout the whole experience. Our waiter did not even want to bother with us with specials or drinks. He simply plopped some paper menus and we pretty much had to fend for ourselves about specials. We are used to 5 star establishments with waiters or waitresses eager to let us know specials and drinks they are known for. We had to order appetisers and meals at the same time per our waiter. Never heard such a thin, but ok.! Everything was rushed! Felt like we were a burden. Good was ok and not really worth the price. Da Francesco’s has way better quality and good for an Italian establishment! Needless to say we will not be returning here!! We spend a lot of money on restaurants, but this establishment does NOT appreciate their customers!
I had a business meeting didn’t realize there would be entertainment which was great but also made it hard to communicate with my guests would recommend this restaurant service was great food was great! see you again soon
Blending makes the very best Manhattans and Nick’s table service is always outstanding. The wine is pretty great as well!
Always amazing service and food. Best restaurant in town!
The experience was “Outstanding” from the food to the service and atmosphere was great. Dined outside. Nice!!!
It was a nice dinner, a nice ambiance, not cheap but not extremely expensive either
My husband and I went to La Collina for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The owners are wonderful and the food to top notch. I would say it’s the best restaurant in Rochester. Highly recommend!
I always love the food at La Collina. They have the best Creme Brulee in the area. Everyone is very attentive.
I went to La Collina with girlfriends on a Thursday. I loved it so much I took my husband back the next day. We had a fabulous meal. Delicious, authentic Italian food. Our waiter Nick was knowledgeable, attentive and fun. We will definitely be back!
Nice to have our Caesar salad and fish prepared table side.
We made a reservation for 2 for a date night. We sat outside and the ambience was relaxing. The craft cocktail menu had creative options along with traditional cocktails. We had the fig/goat cheese/prosciutto appetizer with honey and balsamic and it was so flavorful. Our main dishes were fantastic. (Fish and veal). Highly recommend this restaurant!!
Wonderful food and service!!
Service was horrid. The waiter gave us a lecture on seasoning our food. Another person brought our food and our waiter never checked back on us or refilled our drinks. The next time we saw him was when he asked if we wanted dessert. We asked for the dessert menu, which they do have one, but he said we didn’t need it and proceeded to rattle off the desserts at a speedy clip. We wanted dessert and coffees, but we had enough of his arrogance and rudeness, so we left. Our first time here, but not going back. Classic example of service ruining an otherwise excellent dining experience.
What a perfect restaurant. Live music. Excellent food and service. Loved the terrace. Truly Italian ambience.
Best dining experience I’ve ever had for a second time, Don is amazing and I look forward to having the chance to come back again.
Awesome place. Food is delicious and the service is superb. Love the ambience.
Food was good. Service very slow/poor. Felt very ignored by server
It was OK. We split the table side Caesar salad the cioppino. Caesar was very good, but the cioppono was just ok...have had much better and at a lower price. 1st time there, doubt I'd return.
We've tried La Collina more than once now and each time the service is just awful. The food is very good but still does not compare with the former restaurant in this space.
Hi Brian, we take your review very seriously as it affects our staff and our business. Our servers work together, so that is the reason you might have seen different people delivering your Burrata Caprese, opening your bottle of wine, or making your Caesar Salad. Table side service is a bonus in these pandemic days, but we accept your review and promise to deliver on service next time you visit.
Amazing food and great service. Noise level was high, but we had a great time.
We had a great experience here. Our waiter was engaging and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband got the filet and it was cooked perfectly. I got the spaghetti and it was very flavorful and fresh. The butter and bread in the beginning was divine. So soft and mouthwatering. It was a little loud for a dinner date (overhead music) but otherwise, really great experience and we will be back.
Thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you guys soon.
The food is good but overpriced. The lobster and shrimp risotto had no lobster unless it was finely chopped as I could not find it and small amount of shrimp. The others were happy with their meals. We were so glad to get a patio reservation! The live music was very good! However we would have preferred it a touch lower volume as we struggled to hear each other.
Absolutely impressed! My husband is an Italian/albanian picky but this exceeded all our expectations!
Delicious and tasty food!
Amazing service and beautiful atmosphere with the singer in the patio!
Their pasta and panna cotta was amazing!
Thank you so much, it was great heaving you guys. We'll see you soon!
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
Thank you Megan.
Overall pretty good. One dish wasn’t exactly as hoped.
All I can say is this restaurant is AMAZING!!
From the service to the food it's 5 stars across the board!!
Our server was just so wonderful and recommend the most delicious dishes for us.
He also surprised us with THE MOST tasteful pannacotta I've ever had. We will definitely be coming back.
Mario our server was very informative!!! Excellent service and so knowledgeable!!! Great food !! We will return !!!! Thank you
Thanks you. Mario has been in the business for a long time and we're lucky to have him on our team.
In my opinion, the alcoholic drinks are over priced. For example, Johnnie Walker Black on the rocks was $19 for a very small pour, probably an 1 1/2 ounces. The food was good, but also pricey. The waiter was not friendly and was actually rude. We ordered the table side Cesar salad and my wife said no anchovies please. The waiter then proceeded to lecture us on why she should have them in the dressing , then told us “you should have ordered something else,” and he was not joking. Additionally, he was not attentive to our table of five adults. Needless to say, we will not be going back anytime soon.
Hello and thank you for the review. Our rocks poor is 3 ounces, certaily not 1 1/2. Sorry that you felt pressured on the Ceasar saland, our server was trying to just explain what the traditional way of preparing the salad was. Also, we only use a paste and not whole anchovies. Despite that, we'll make sure we you have it your way when you come back. Salute!
I always have a great meal at La Collina. Everyone is super friendly and very attentive. I especially like the different seafood options. The Linguine Nere allo Scoglio is excellent.
Thank you Shawn, your feedback means a lot!
Good quality ingredients. Willingness to accommodate food allergy requests.
My husband and I moved to this area from Chicago and were looking for a true Italian restaurant. We had tired a few restaurants before coming here and were disappointed with either the food or the hospitality or the ambiance. La Collina delivered on all three and we had a great time there.
So glad to hear you guys have us on top of your list!
This place is outstanding. Our waiter was a gentle giant and the food was fabulous. Can’t wait to go back!
The gentle giant is Nick, and we love him too :)
The waiter and waitress was pushing each other to come to our table.. they did not want to work. 3 different people asked us for our order for drinks, yet it took 20 mins after the drinks to get a food order in.
Great cocktails, great service, and food tasted wonderful! No one at our table of six had one complaint. This place is definitely one of our favorite restaurants!
Very good food and fantastic service
Enjoyed the dining experience. However you need a better hostess stand. I would not be happy to be dining with the doorway right there!!!!!!
A hidden gem!! We love this place! Food and service are phenomenal!
Prior to our visit, I checked out their fantastic offerings using their online menu through OpenTable.
We arrived for our 5:00 reservation and immediately seated by our very polished waiter. Using notes made earlier, I placed our order.
The freshly made Italian bread was excellent as a prelude to a bottle of Quilt Cabernet. Followed quickly by a generous Burrata Caprese and a Carpaccio di Manzo with thinly sliced beef filet. We finished with a hearty Rissoto Al'aragosta e Gamberi.
My only disappointment with an otherwise fantastic experience was the menu presented on OpenTable had “old” prices. Our bill was $28 more than expected.
I just checked and they did pull their menu from OpenTable. You can find updated info on their website.
The food, drinks, and service were all very good.
