THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Collina's Italian Cafe Restaurant Review

: Quaint shaded sidewalk seating has helped this simple Italian bistro fare well, especially in Rice Village, which is constantly packed with shoppers. Collina's has a strong following, particularly for its hand-tossed pizzas, available with whole-wheat crusts. Traditional toppings abound. But it's the signature pizzas that get more attention, including the Hawaiian, with pineapple, jalapeños and several meats. Another favorite is the calzone, a pizza-crust turnover stuffed with four cheeses, spinach, sausage and marinara sauce. Collina's also turns out a lively house salad with garlicky vinaigrette. Among the popular hand-stuffed pastas, don't miss the ravioli, served with a smooth crema rosa sauce. Or go for deftly prepared pasta standards like rigatoni Bolognese, lasagna and manicotti, or one of the notable chicken dinners.
