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 was extremely insulting to my 91-year-old mother when she mentioned to him that there was... 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 dish, but we won't return.

Collinas - nothing fancy, just good Italian and nice portions. Have never been disappointed the last 15 years. Delivery and take out is a great option.

Wow! What can I say. My wife and I go to Collina's EVERY time we are in Houston (we live in San Antonio). We first went to Collina's in the late 90s. Randy Hopkins is the manager and he runs an excellent restaurant. The pizza is to die for! The pizza and all the other entrees are made from scratch.... More

Had a traditional Italian meal here with friends and the service was exceptional. We brought a pinot noir and a pinot gris with us and the staff was very accommodating. Food was really good - not creative - but very tasty. This would be a good place to take kids and be treated very well!

I've eaten lunch and dinner and catered from here for the last 15 years. It's a wonderful locals spot where you can bring your own bottle or enjoy their wine selection. Nightly specials on the chalk board, handmade pastas, delightful pizzas or portobello mushrooms - there is always something for everyone on the menu. Their pizza dough is handmade and... More
