THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Collina's Italian Cafe Restaurant Review

: Inner-loop Collina's has achieved a following of fans all the way to the suburbs of Memorial. Families, singles and teens crowd the place, located in a small shopping complex near Memorial City mall. Especially popular are the hand-tossed pizzas, available with whole-wheat crusts. Though traditional toppings abound, it's the signature pizzas that get more attention---like the Mona Lisa with spinach and feta. 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. Other favorites include hand-stuffed ravioli with a smooth crema rosa sauce, and a couple of notable chicken dinners.
