I visited London for the weekend with friends and this Italian restaurant was recommended to us. We went to this lovely place on Friday evening and it definitely was an excellent choice! Food was delicious, staff friendly & attentive, great atmosphere. Neighborhood is perfect to escape from the hectic city center. I will definitely return next time I visit London.... More

SIx of us went last week to this restaurant and it was a horrible experience. I ordered a pasta dish for the main. I like garlic but it was so overladen with garlic, I found it impossible to eat. When I called the waiter and explained it wasn't edible he said 'you should have told me you don't like garlic'.... More

We came with high expectations, given that the restaurant was highly recommended by neighbours who are generally spot-on about local restaurants, and that it wasn't that easy to book a table. Perhaps it's nicer in the summer when the terrace is open, but it's hard to believe that alone could elevate the food we ate last night to an acceptable... More

Wanted a low-key Italian, neighbourhood restaurant, with a nice outdoor table, and this pretty much fit the bill perfectly. The interior looks a bit 'old fashioned', but nothing really wrong with it - however on a hot summer's evening, we asked for and received a table in their lovely garden. The whole restaurant has this smell about it which takes... More

We came as a group of 8 today and was promised a table outside. Got there and the manager decided the weather wasn't good enough. It was sunny and nice. So we decided we wanted to change restaurant and he tried to charge us 10 pound each for no reason! All the waiters stared at us when we sat down... More

We are use to spend diners (family or friends) to this quiet and savoureux restaurant. Nice pasta, good wine, pleasant staff.... Good place that I'd recommend.

This is a small place but they were able to seat a wedding party of 14 (and a few other regular guests). They laid on a magnificent dinner, some items set and some a choice -- all exquisitely prepared. The cuisine is fine dining Italian and the wines complemented the food. The "wedding cake" was a marvelous creation of berries... More

Let's start with the slightly bad side. If you're looking for a very warm, welcoming and friendly owner/manager this isn't exactly the right place. The man welcoming you is very professional but a bit cold and perhaps slightly condescending. He comes from Piemonte. The rest was just perfect. The staff was composed of a charming Italian waitress and a young... More

Description
Highly praised by Time Out, La Collina serves stunning modern and traditional Italian cuisine, from fresh fish dishes to homemade pastas. Enjoy a fine Italian wine in the minimalist dining room or dine in one of the two al fresco spaces; either the pavement spot or the pretty sheltered decking with greenery and flowers.
