We ate there with a group of eight. The place was crowded and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. My wife had pasta and I had a pizza. Wine was available by the glass and you were alllowed to bring your own bottle. I found the food to be average for this type of establishment. The service was not very good as they seemed understaffed for the crowd they had. I ordered a second glass of wine and it never came - at least it wasn't on the bill. They charged us a mandatory 18% tip because of the group size. This is not a bad place but you can do much better than this in Houston for Italian restaurants.

A frequent visitor, this time I ordered Snapper Picatta. It did not taste like snapper, and when I complained, the "manager" showed me in a "in your face" manner the invoice, showing they bought "bay snapper" at 4.99 a pound from H&H. Real snapper should cost more, so I checked with a fish store, and verified it in the web that "bay snapper" is a fancy name for a cheap fish called sheepshead, the same used for making fish sticks for fast food chains.
Will I go back to Collina's on Richmond? Maybe. Will I order fish there? Never.

Great pizza, decent italian meals, and pleasant atmosphere with the Tuscan murals on the walls. Great outdoor seating too.
