La Collina

17 Princess Road, Chalk Farm, LONDON, NW1 8JR

1 rosettes

La Collina is a relaxed and authentic neighbourhood Italian for the boho-chic residents of Primrose Hill, its discreet black frontage slotted into an elegant terrace. Inside, the place is simplicity itself: cream walls without adornment, dark pine floors, black leather seats and white tablecloths, and a small bar in the corner, all flooded with light from large sash windows. A cast-iron spiral staircase coils down to the basement, where you get a ringside seat for the tiny open kitchen - the domain of chef Diana Rinaldo who sends out homespun regional, ingredient-led dishes offering a pleasing mix of tradition and more modish thinking. A starter of home-made pappardelle with cep mushroom sauce is just what Italian food is all about: simple, seasonal and fresh. Next up, spanking fresh sea bass fillets are flavoured with tomatoes, thyme, and white wine, and to finish, the house tiramis? is a paragon of its ilk. All-Italian wines, and friendly Latin service add to the appeal.
