“Excellent home-made pasta” gets top billing at this “obliging” local Italian on the fringes of Primrose Hill. “Top marks for ambience in the garden (but rather less indoors)”, so it comes into its own in the summer.

Have you eaten at La Collina?

Owner's description


La Collina is a modern Italian restaurant serving a mix of traditional and innovative dishes. Located in the heart of Primrose Hill, and just a few minutes walk from Chalk Farm and Camden underground station. It is open for lunch and dinner Monday to Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday from 12pm.

La Collina is a favorite with local residents as well as with the lucky few who have had the pleasure of dining here.

Although open since 2006, La Collina was taken over by Patrick Oberto and his partner Diana Rinaldo in April 2011. Both Patrick and Diana have worked in some of London’s top restaurants alongside some of the best and most revered Italian Chefs and restaurateurs, gaining a vast amount of experience along the way.

When the opportunity arose to take over La Collina, Patrick and Diana did not hesitate, simply because they recognised the potential to stamp their own identity on this jewel in Primrose Hill.

Patrick and Diana’s aim is to simply make its patrons feel relaxed in a homely atmosphere while providing the highest level of service and great food.
