Nothing fancy, just consistently good Italian food served by friendly wait staff. Their basket of focaccia bread served with each meal is delicious. My two favorites are their pizza and siciliano (eggplant, black olives, capers, and marinara over angel hair pasta). Give them a try.

This place has really good pizza, but the last time I was here I came for lunch. I ordered a "mini" calzone and when it arrived at the table it covered the entire plate. Apparently the regular is even bigger - you'd really want to...More

The staff pulled tables together to enable our group of eight to be together. Pasta is their strong suite, offered many ways. Also chicken dishes and Italian panini sandwiches. My meal was prepared fresh, and quicl;y

Collina's on Richmond is just a couple of blocks from where we live, and it is our little go-to place on many a lunchtime or evening meal. It has that homey feeling when you walk in as they have red and white checkered table cloths....More

Have the pizza, pasta, lasagna, salad, or the specials. Have wine there or bring your own for a nominal corking fee. Fun, dependable, always meets my expectations. Really good for meeting friends and sharing a meal.

My parents and I have gone to Collinas for many years but tonight was the worst. Staff was rude and inattentive. The food came out cold and took more than an hour for some dishes to arrive in a basically empty restaurant. The manager Jerry...More

This small shopping strip package packs dynamite! Best Italian food in H-town. We eat there at least once a week. Pasta Siciliano is the best I have ever had. Pizza's are out of this world. Lasagne as well. It will become your stand by.

I've been here 3 times since moving to the area. Service and food are consistently good, bread is yummy! Wine choices are limited. Really enjoy this place.

With a client in tow, ordered Tortelinni stuffed with sausage and spinach and it was not good. The pasta was thick and gummy; the insides of spinach and sausage were minuscule; the sauce was too thick and the cheese was overpowering. Certainly not their best...More
