Restaurant description

In the heart of Primrose Hill is the sleek-fronted restaurant La Collina. A favourite with the locals, the Italian restaurant has received rave reviews from Time Out for its modern Italian cuisine. A pretty garden offers an al fresco experience.

With traditional offerings, the select La Collina menu boasts a range of dishes, from carefully selected meats to a simple but delicious bolognaise with homemade pasta. Pan-fried goat’s cheese is served with fresh French beans and a tasty shallot dressing, while a succulent braised veal ossobuco comes with flavoursome pan-fried saffron risotto. Indulgent desserts at La Collina include the irresistible chocolate and hazelnut fondant, accompanied by Italian vanilla ice cream.

For al fresco dining, La Collina in Primrose Hill is ideal. While the stunning interior boasts a minimalist design, evoking a truly Italian atmosphere, the outdoor terrace offers a sheltered haven. Enjoy a glass of wine from the extensive list amongst potted flowers and green foliage.

La Collina in London is around a 10-minute walk from both Camden Town Tube Station and Chalk Farm Tube Station. Regent’s Park is a 4-minute walk away.

    Always a good experience at la collina. Had the very light fresh minestrone followed by the most beautifully cooked tender pink lamb cutlets.

    This was once one of our favourite local restaurants, but sad to say the food here has deteriorated considerably. How Patrick can send out food like this and keep a straight face is beyond me! The salmon was inedible, drenched in oil and a bitter pink pepper spice. Parma and melon, which went out with the ark, was dull; some slices of parma dumped atop a pile of melon. No finesse here and even the pasta dish was dull and unexciting - this is after all an Italian restaurant so the least they could do is get that right! Overall an expensive and utterly disappointing experience. Clearly trading on past glory and supported by people with more money than sense. We will never go back, there is far better available and for far less money, as London is awash with great restaurants; but this is not one of them.

    Our meal was delicious and the service attentive. I've been here many times. Only disappointmenr was that we couldn't sit in the lovely garden due to the rain.

    Great Italian food ... never disappoints . Simple elegance and quite . Great to meet friends and have a good chat over great Food. Patrick the manage always attentive and discrete at the same time . As an Italian living in Primrose hill I really recommend la Collina .. .. and as a 'risotto eating Milanese' I love their saffron and shrimp risotto !
