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

: Collina's is especially admired for its laid-back but urban ambience and hand-tossed, thin-crust pizzas. 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 decent sandwiches such as the Italian muffaletta on focaccia. Other favorite dishes include ravioli with a smooth crema rosa sauce, lasagna, manicotti and a couple of notable chicken dinners.
