It just looked like another family run Italian restaurant from the outside, but once we read the menu and spoke to the server we realised that this place is special. Our son recklessly order a large pizza, which defeated even his healthy appetite! Good pasta and an excellent steak. This place is about quality cooking, fresh produce AND reasonable prices.

They are open for dinner 7 nights a week, but check on the phone first, times and seasons change. A nice unassuming small restaurant, with a wonderfully mature palette of great Italian cuisine. They have nightly specials to compliment their menu, and they have a great selection of pizzas. We had their bruessuta as an apitiser - a meal unto... More

My wife had the lasagna, I had the spaghetti bolognese. It was all very, very good. The bread was oven fresh and the service was excellent. The prices, while in line with other fine dining in the area, were a little higher than you would find in larger metro areas, but not by much. Overall we enjoyed the experience and... More

This restaurant is inexplicably rated 17th in Sonora -- behind hot dog joints, delis, sandwich places, breakfast cafes and goodness knows what kind of other trivial eateries. Christopher's is a restaurant where you can actually find an adult meal The dishes we had were excellent.

Our family has been to Christopher's many times. Every time we're thinking of Italian food although they serve more than that now. Christopher is a genius with food, creating something new and tasty all the time for his specials. Like their nice quality presentations too. Breakfast too has some very special and unique dishes. Christopher's father, George, is often one... More

Classic Italian fare that did not disappoint. My son and I had a large meal here including salads, pizza and a pasta entree. The wine was good and my son tells me he has been back a few more times to enjoy the same great food. Right next door to the Sonora Inn, you can't beat the location.

The service was very good and our dinners were both wonderful the prices are not... More

Some of the best pizza we've had since actually visiting Italy. Great service, value for money. We appreciated that the owner himself asked us how the food was. You can tell he takes great pride in his restaurant and the food. Thank you for a great meal.

They have a very nice wine list with selections from local wineries. If you want a good meal without all of the fuss of getting dressed up (I went in straight from Yosemite), consider Christophers. Nice atmosphere; I sat by the window and watched the world go by.
