Went here on the recommendation of a friend. Mural surrounding the room is a lovely complement to the Italian food. The hostess literally tossed my friends coat on her without saying a word because my friend dared to drape her coat on the back of our seat. Perhaps an offer to hang the coat would have been a nicer welcome.... More

The service was great, Ricardo did a great job, we got our food fast, food was hot. I ordered the lasagna it was ok, nothing special. My friend ordered the chicken florentina, he said it was good the sauce on chicken was great, the polenta was mediocre. Deco was nice.

Spent the night in Millbrae and needed a place to eat. Across the street we saw the La Collina Italian and decided to check it out. We liked everything about it. The service was great, the food was excellent and the atmosphere very nice

This was our second time eating here on 6 months. The food and service were consistently good.This is a great neighborhood restaurant with a nice Italian Bistro atmosphere. I had the Osso Bucco which was delicious.

I have been here before but tonight was at best terrible. Service was bad, not enough help. I ordered a New York steak rare. It was barely edible. It was well done, full of fat and gristle. My friend ordered clams, mussels and linguini. It was cold and dry. He had to put the olive oil that was served with... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and this restaurant was an easy walk. There were only a few tables with other diners in the restaurant so it is baffling why service was so poor. There was a long wait for drink orders and food delivery and when the food arrived, one of the four meals ordered was wrong. The... More

I was informed this was a terrific restaurant, sadly it failed to get close to any adjective beyond adequate. The food was pretty bland, while the portions were enormous, the wine list felt too skimpy. Our waiter was inexperienced. It was certainly busy enough, I suppose in downtown Millbrae there isn't a lot of competition.
