Located on the ground floor of 727 Collins Street, Mr Collins is a welcome addition to the Collins Square food mix.
With a fashionable upmarket look, Mr Collins incorporates the rustic feel of traditional European dining with slick modern touches.
Inspired by the cooking of the southern region of Italy, Mr Collins aims to preserve the flavours of the local fresh ingredients as well as their fragrance, thereby maintaining a focus on simplicity rather than over- complication.
Mr Collins provides an authentic Italian dining experience. We visited during the lunch hour rush and were transported to Italy for the hour. The menu boasts a wide selection of antipasto and cheeseboards, pizzas and calzones, homemade pasta and soups along with a range of risottos and healthy salads.
The pizzas we devoured were of particular note. The delicately thin crusts had a good balance between crispiness and chewiness and the expertly judged toppings were delicious.
With a delicious focus on Italian food, Mr Collins looks to be a popular spot in the Docklands.
