Great place.

Drove from Sand Keys on the recommendations of the hotel. They called ahead and put us on the list. The pizza was amazing better then any in the UK and the home made Gelato was the best ice cream we have eaten. hopefully will go back before we leave.

We've been to Cristino's for several years. Its staff and owner are always welcoming and try to make sure you are being served well and your food is good and what you want. People mostly eat the marvellous pizza. Its thin crust with your choice fresh toppings. We had a large pizza with two toppings and two sodas for $28,... More

Great food nice variety on the menu. The linguine w clams was excellent and spaghetti frutti mare had a variety of seafood over spaghetti--large mussels, shrimp, scallops--very good. Sitting out on the patio was nice. Small place so expect to wait to be seated--but worth it.

This is the second year that we have visited this place while on vacation. The margherita pizza is amazing. The sauce and fresh basil makes this our favorite. When finished you must have their fresh made gelato for dessert. We took a friend along this year - he had the lasagna and rated that very good.

So glad we decided to go. The staff, especially Katie, were excellent. Awesome food. Quite a wait if you want to eat outside. The Gelato was superb! The mozzarella was fresh as was the basil. Yum, yum, yum.

Both times it was impressive. The pizza is unique and that fancy cheesecake is just unforgettable. I highly suggest this restaurant for anyone. It has a good atmosphere and quality servers. Needs better music though.

We've had their pizza and were very impressed with the authentic Italian style and flavors and the generous use of fresh ingredients throughout. Tonight our little family went up hoping to sample some of the other Italian dishes on the menu. On a busy Friday night we were pleasantly surprised when a quoted 20 minute wait turned into a brief... More

The only place I will go when I really need a top of the line, one of a kind pizza. The rest of the menu is just as exciting and excellent. I always have a glass or two of their house wine to go with any meal. You simply will not be disappointed, unless your taste buds don't know good... More

This place has the best lasagna I have ever had at a pizza place. Really flavorful! Normally lasagna is so BLAND at Italian pizza joints and even at restaurants. The Pizza was pretty good but I was definitely expecting more basil and for it to be super green and fresh like it normally is. It was not evenly distributed around... More

I had a craving for pizza but the problem is - I'm allergic to dairy. Christino's can work around that! Their pizza has fantastic flavor. And my husband can get the works on his while I go dairy free but with loads of extra goodies. Everything is fresh, the service is cheery and overall a grand experience. Its always busy... More
