    The food, drinks and service at La Collina are unfailingly excellent. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the welcome is always very warm

    Delicious food but slightly salty. I would like there to be another fish selection and also a chicken dish. Portions are hearty and servers were courteous . A lovely evening had by all

    Lovely authentic neighbourhood restaurant with consistently good food. Easy parking outside and level access was appreciated by my elderly parents. Pasta was cooked to perfection and the chocolate cake dessert with coconut sorbet was sublime.

    Lovely local restaurant run for many years by the same friendly, efficient Italuan family. A bit congested unless weather allows dining in pleasantly decorated courtyard. Highly recommended. Very popular with the locals.

    Lunch for three. We sat in the garden under the canopy, and it felt like we were in Italy. Fantastic seabream served off the bone. Lots of families and a few babies to add magic to the garden.

    This restaurant is a gem. We come here now and then when in the area and always love it. The staff, the food, the restaurant and vibes are all fantastic. An exceptional traditional Italian restaurant worth the visit

    Love this place. Outside garden, food, wine…all top. Patrick, Mattia are like an extended family for us. We bring our friends to share this gem and they all love it too.

    The perfect neighborhood Italian restaurant. Inside it is cosy, with a nice window onto the street. At the back is a patio, shaded by a giant umbrella. The food is uncomplicated, with a Sicilian flavour. Friendly, efficient service. Dogs welcome (though there's limited space inside)

    Our favourite local; Garden is a gem. Food is amazing and fresh. Specials are always worth a try. . We almost don’t want to say so we can keep it for ourselves.

    We had the Bolognaise and pasta with mushrooms and truffles and we loved both. So tasty! Tables smartly laid out with crisp white cloth and napkins. Service was immaculate (all their staff are tall, slim and elegant, male and female!). Would definitely go back if we're in the area.

    You will find exquisite food in an unpretentious setting. It is a fantastic neighbourhood restaurant in Primrose Hill. Patrick and Mattias were extremely attentive throughout our lunch. We highly recommend it.

    I'm a local and a regular at this restaurant and it is always a joy. Great tasty food served with warmth. Took my Mum for Mother's day and she loved it. Prices have stepped up a bit I guess reflecting the tighter restaurant market

    My husband was not well after eating tuna tartare , sea bream and fresh tomatoes. Unfortunately I am pretty sure is Collina food as he has eaten plain all day. The food is not bad however don t take raw dishes, they re not reliable!

    Prior to booking, requested table upstairs as one of party had had recent hip surgery. This was accepted by return email stating 'absolutely'. Unfortunately when we arrived there were only tables available downstairs accessed by a narrow spiral staircase. No acceptable explanation given. Poor show La Collina!!!

    This is one of my favourites. A wonderful authentic Italian family restaurant. Food always fabulous (but never showy), service always good and the atmosphere welcoming and warm. The garden in the summer is to die for. Many happy meals with friends here. SHHHHH! Don't tell anyone else

    Lovely restaurant. Cosy in winter. Not the weather for outdoors but in sunset great garden. Food really authentic and varied. Professional and attentive service. Good wine choice. A real local neighbourhood treat of a restaurant. Thanks

    We had a lovely lunch here - atmospheric cosy restaurant with excellent food, wine and service. A small menu with some traditional Italian dishes - we all enjoyed the ossobuco and had a delicious pear, chocolate and marscapone cake. Highly recommended

    A wonderful meal, with great service and atmosphere. We had a great time. The quality of the food was outstanding and the staff were more than happy to help with any query we had about the food or drinks available. A great menu on offer.

    We have eaten at La Collina many many time over the years. The food and service is consistently good. Wish they had a better selection of side dishes, is my only complaint, too many salads and not enough vegetables Had our usual great evening, as you can actually here yourselves speak

    Haven’t done pizza night at La Collina before - it’s only once a month - and what a pleasant surprise! The truffle pizza was delicious and the service and atmosphere were as wonderful as ever. Nicest restaurant in Primrose Hill.

    This is an amazing find. The staff were super efficient and welcoming. The food was incredible. I ordered the mushroom and truffle linguine and it was by far the best pasta I have tasted.

    We love this local Italian restaurant in Primrose Hill. Crisp linens, friendly staff, great food. It’s our “go to” place for family celebrations, get togethers with former colleagues and it’s great in the summer (outside) and in the winter (warm and cosy). Recommend highly.

    One of our favourite local italians. Good and wine always a pleasure. Ossibucco today was delicious! We love the Milanese so hopefully that comes back too!

    A small cosy restaurant with very attentive staff who were able to help with both the drinks and menu to satisfy our needs. All in all a good experience. Plan to go there again when we next visit London

    We used to dine regularly at La Collina when we lived in London and loved the food. Returning to the restaurant was high on the list for us and our kids. Unfortunately the food this time around did not live up to our expectations. Most dishes were okay-mediocre. Our daughter, who had the Bolognese (and was the only one to do so from our party of eight), had severe and sudden diarrhoea thereafter, which disrupted our plans for the rest of the day in London! The service, location, wine were excellent. I imagine raising the gastronomical and hygiene standards would bring La Collina back to its star status in Primrose Hill.

    Great food in this cosy restaurant. V good and efficient service. My only issue is that it can be a bit loud. Someone nearby was loud and it was difficult to hear ourselves sometimes. I don't know what can be done to educate some guests laughing or speaking so loud at times. We will be back there hoping that no loud guests will be there.

    Returning for the third time. The service and food was excellent and added bonus to be sitting outside on the lovely terrace. Will definitely return.

    Truly enjoyed dining in the garden at La Collina. A friend and I shared a number of pasta dishes with a chilled carafe of Bardolino rosé. Perfect evening meal and lovely staff, no pretentiousness and wonderful food. Will be back!
