Being from NYC I was skeptical, but pleasantly surprised. The pizza was delicious and Gelato was just like the Italian restaurants back home. Definitely a good place to get some great pizza.

We ate here while on vacation and ordered a pizza. It was wonderful! The only negative is that they don't have "specialty" pizzas and most of the toppings are extra. However, the crust is great and the toppings taste fresh. Definitely recommend!

Came to dinner while on vacation with my wife. Their coal oven pizza was awesome. I also had a delicious carbonara pasta. The food came fast and the staff there was really friendly. Outside or inside seating available. I highly recommend it.

I went to that restaurant during a conference I was attending in Clearwater at the beginning of June. I had the spagetti frutti mare (seafood) and that was amazing.

Aside from outstanding pizza, and good Italian cuisine besides that, Cristino's provides better value for money than most places, and their staff is always attentive and accommodating. Be sure to try their homemade gelatos. Wine list is quite disappointing.

I like the atmosphere and the food is always consistent and great. I have the penne pasta sometimes but mostly eat the salad with chicken which has the peppers on it. Delicious
