We had a great authentic Italian experience here. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The Bronzino was on point and don’t forget the gelato for desert, tastes like your in Italy according to my wife that grew up there. We will be back.
Service was good but that was about it. We were seated right next to the entry way of the tent so my poor husband was constantly freezing as people went in and out. Food was very overpriced for the amount and the value. To top it off the noise level in the tent was so loud I could barely hear my husband across the small table. Felt more like a beer tent than anything
Your review omits a very important aspect. We are living in the middle of the greatest worldwide disease the world has seen in 100 years. Of course the ambiance and temperature of the dining area are not perfect, but we try to follow the health department rules while giving our patrons the best possible dining experience, given the situation. We would love to have you back when the pandemic is over for a more beautiful and warmer ambiance. Ciao!
Had a great time and great meal! The outside tent was warmer than expected and the service was great. Definitely will be back!
Thank you so much! Come and see us soon!
We visited La Collina last night for the 1st time to celebrate my birthday. I had multiple places that I could have chosen and my family chose La Collina. We were not disappointed with our decision and very pleased with the way they adapted to the COVID restrictions. The outside dining was very nice and comfortable and the service was excellent. I have eaten at restaurants around the world and I come from an very large Italian family and can say that La Collina's food is right up there at the top. Everyone at our table had nothing left on their plates and they kept saying how great their dinner was. Good wine , great people and a nice atmosphere made this a fantastic birthday dinner. I will be back for sure and I have already told some friends and family that they need to make a reservation and enjoy some great food! If you get the chance, ask for Blendi! He was amazing and very attentive. Thank you for giving us a great experience and see you soon!
Tank you Tim. We're so happy and are glad to be part of your great experience given the lockdown situation. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we had to dine outdoors (yes in December!!). The outdoor, heated tent was nice. As always, the service and food was fantastic and we have already booked a date to go back in January.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for dining with us. It is reviews like this that give our staff a sense of purpose and keeps us going during this unprecedented times. Ciao!
An amazing Italian restaurant! Food and drinks were excellent. The service was second to none as well! I would highly recommend it.
So great to hear. Thank you for giving us a try! Salute!
Birthday dinner. Excellent food!
Great to hear. Grazie!
DO NOT EAT HERE!!!!! They do not follow any Covid regulations. They have an outdoor tent but they are running the indoor part of their restaurant as usual. I went there with my immediate family after my wedding ceremony. The indoor area was packed including the bar. They didn’t have any recollection of my reservation and did not have a table for us. Several staff members were not wearing masks and one of them got in my face and was yelling at me. I was told to go see the man at the bar. He told me to take my mask off so he could see my face. He said “oh I remember you baby girl. I’ll get you a table.” My daughter was crying her eyes out. A hostess was rubbing her back trying to comfort her and told her that she didn’t want her to be so sad on my wedding day. They finally set a table for us in the tent and we left. They were so rude. Ruined my wedding night. We were in formal dresses and tuxedos. They couldn’t have cared less about what they did. One star rating is overly generous. I don’t see an option for zero stars. If you’ve eaten there recently, I would get a Covid test.
None of our staff members works without a mask, we don't have anyone sit inside and we follow all of the state's guidelines in regards to Covid. We did have your reservation and as you mention on your review we got you a table on the tent after 10 minutes of waiting on a Saturday night. Perhaps what we did wrong is not accepting your request to be seated inside and to brake the law, even if it is a special night like a wedding night. Sorry....you can sit inside once the lockdown is lifted!
Wonderful dinner, great waiter, food and wine exceptional
Thank you Barbara!
The dinner was exceptional! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left! Great recommendations from the waitstaff/ownership, attention to detail, quality of food and service! Great value as well !
Everything was amazing! From the environment to the servers to the food. They take special attention to the food and listen to any requests. It was my boyfriends birthday and they brought out a free dessert at the end of the night for him for free. Don was great.
Food was wonderful and service was also top notch. We’ve had a few outdoor dining experiences during the shutdown and this was very comfortable!
Great experience - even though we were outside due to the governor's latest restrictions.
The food was great! However the drinks were a little pricey.
Great food, great staff! They did an amazing job under the circumstances relating to Covid!
Delicious food with even better service! We love La Collina! So very happy to have this gem so close to home! The zuppe de pesce is my favorite!
Love the place, food, service is off the charts , anxious to return when we are allowed
Hi John. Thank you for the kind words. We now have a heated tent on our outdoor patio with limited seating (especially on weekends). Please call 248-759-4099 to reserve a table. Same delicious menu is being served. Salute!!!
Really crowded and food was so/so... ordered the salmon which was okay but not excellent.
Sorry to hear about your experience. Wish you would have let your server know. Please come back and give us a second chance. Would love to be able to make it up to you. All the best!!!
Great good and great service!
Thank you Nancy!
Our Caesar salad was excellent, nice wine selection and both entrees were delicious. Though veal Marsala was not on the menu the chef made it for me. The staff was friendly and attentive.
Hi Sandy. Glad to her you had a good dining experience. Come see us in our newly added outdoor heated tent for this winter. Salute!!!
Great service. Wine list is outstanding.
We love this place. This was the fourth time we’ve been there and they haven’t disappointed us on anything. We’ve told several friends about this place and they’ve also enjoyed it.
Thank you Michael. We are honored to have you guys as a return customers. Thank you for spreading the good word for us. Ciao!!!
Everything we ordered was disappointing except for the egg plant parmesan which was phenomenal. Restaurant was extremely loud. Could not hear our waiter at all, mask didn’t help-not his fault. Had to ask for a bread basket five times, service not great.
Would love to hear what was wrong with your food, and would love to have you back for a second chance to impress. As for the loudness, unfortunately there is little we can do. I guess it is because most people feel at home and have a great time. We are very strict with our staff about mask wearing, and I apologize on their behalf for you not hearing them.
We love La Collina and wanted to bring our family. Everyone enjoyed the food, ambiance and great service. We will definitely be back again.
Thank you so much. Would love to have your business again. Come visit us in our outdoor heated tent for dinner. Salute!!!
Excellent service and the food was spectacular!
Hi Jennifer. Thanks so much for visiting us. It was great to have you guys.
The service was ok, except for the fact the server kept pressuring us to order, right from the moment we sat down. We went with another couple and we were enjoying conversing, and we like to take our time- especially when it is a fine dining setting. Food was ok, but very over priced, very small portions. I wouldn't say it was outstanding, yet not bad.
Great dining experience ...service was perfect, food and wine very good and the overall experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Restaurants in general have become very boring and La Collina gave me hope. Our server was the owner so you know they care about their patrons. Will be back!
So great to hear. Great to meet you and your husband. Looking forward to you guys' next visit. A presto!
Had a wonderful anniversary dinner at La Collina. Our waiter Nick took terrific care of us. First time visit but will definitely be back - a great add to the Rochester restaurant scene.
Hi Eric. So wonderful to hear about your dining experience. Looking forward to heaving you guys back. Ciao!
I really enjoyed the food and wine. The table side caesar salad was the best part of the meal. The dessert was also very good. The layout of the restaurant is very nice as well. The staff is very friendly and professional.
Thanks so much Aaron, we're glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us. Looking forward to serving you again!
Nick was an amazing server!
Service is outstanding and Blendi and Don are the best!
Always great to see you friend. Looking forward to your next visit!
I was very disappointed in my pasta with bolognese sauce. I’m Italian and it was very bland, no taste at all. It was missing a lot of seasoning. Took it home. We had 3 different waiters and we asked for separate checks from our first waiter and ended up with one check given by another waiter. I was not a fan and I don’t think the rest of the group was crazy about their food. It wasn’t the WOW factor I was expecting.
It is not often that we get this feedback about our food. Would like to invite you again to give us another chance.
Food was great, but the service was so so and we were seated within a couple feet of the next table. Not a great experience...
The order was lifted just so you know. We are still challenged with missing staff members and apologize about the service not being perfect. we're working on getting more staff members soon and hope to see you dine with us again in the near future.
It is not often that I give such a low rating, however, this experience was so bad in so many categories, I had to share in hopes they can do better in the future. The waitstaff was totally disorganized, rushing around not knowing where food was to be delivered and missing basics like refilling water glasses, asking how the meal was, and offering boxes for leftovers. The lobster & shrimp risotto tasted like warmed over spaghettios without a piece of either fish to be found therein. Social distancing was NOT observed as a couple next to us was seated at a table not more than 2 feet from us. No one thanked us for coming and our waiter seemed totally disinterested in our satisfaction at any point in the evening. I would definitely NOT recommend this restaurant.
We apologize for the unusual experience. As explained the day you visited, we were extremely under staffed and tried to accomodate everyone that night. With respect to the quality of the food, this was a surprise to us. The rissoto is usually one of our best sellers and the overwhelming majority of our guest rave about that dish. Please contact us at 248-759-4099 so that we can make things right on your next visit.
Food was very good but we waited nearly an hour between salad and main course. We assume the kitchen was slammed because the restaurant was full. And our waiter disappeared completely after the salads, probably recruited for the kitchen.
No comment from anyone on the delays. Had to ask the water server to retrieve our check.
We had dinner last night for our anniversary here and it was wonderful! The food was great and such a nice ambiance! Definitely will be going back
My husband and I came here for a date night to celebrate his birthday. We Used to come here when it was silver spoon. We Sat on the patio (outside the fence). While the food was very good, The service was awful. Extremely slow, waitstaff was confused. We Ordered cocktails before appetizers and cocktails came out after we already finished appetizers. It was difficult to order or request anything as We were only checked on a few times throughout the meal. When the bill came, we waited so long for it to be paid, I walked it into the restaurant myself and gave then my credit card. I would give it another chance because the food was on par, but the service has a long way to go and that would be a deal breaker for me. Luckily I wasn’t paying for a babysitter last night! Hope you guys can step up the service!
Excellent food and service. Noise level is a bit high near the bar so it was difficult to hear people across the table.
Delicious again and again! This time my husband and I brought our three children to dinner. La Collina is now their favorite restaurant!
was a perfect birthday celebration dinner. Food was amazing and we even got lucky with entertainment playing!
Lovely outdoor patio, our waiter, Nick, was superb and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
