Great lunch

Overall this place was good. The pizza was great. The basil was fresh, tomato sauce above average. We ordered one pizza with goat cheese, mushrooms and sun dried tomatos. The only complaint there was not much goat cheese on the pizza. We were all so hungry and our second pizza was sent back... read more

Food and service are consistently good. I always enjoy my time here and recently ordered their lasagna which was very good. Always try to leave room for their gelato that never disappoints . Pizza is I believe the best in Pinellas and being a New Yorker I am so very fussy about pizza. Been a foody customer since they opened.... More

This is like one of those family owned Italian joints with they owner's favorite soccer team banner on the wall and autographed pictures of the owner with famous people. The food is absolutely excellent. Being that it advertises itself as a "coal oven pizza" place, my family and I decided to get the pizza. Being a family with young kids,... More

We drove from Orlando just to eat here, and it was more than worth the trip! They have the best Coal Oven Pizza even compared to the other coal ovens in Orlando. The homemade gelato is amazing and literally melts in your mouth. The friendliness of the staff as well as the manager is Exceptional. We had our pizza &... More

This place has really good pizza but large portions. Very attentive wait staff. Deserts were mediocre, I would suggest the gelato over any other desert.

This is a small restaurant with great food. We tried a couple of the pasta dishes and the pizza. The pasta was very good. The pizza crust was outstanding! They also offer kids size pizza which is small but was large enough for two kids to share.

Visit here regularly for relaxing lunch on my own or business. Brought a friend here on Saturday after shopping. Great pizza, salads and Italian pastas. Gelato made onsite and many flavors to select. I also use Cristino's for catering business lunches. Gene is great at helping me plan portions for any number that I need to feed. He has become... More

Food was pretty good. We had pizza, chicken pram, and the wings. All was pretty good. We shared a large gelato with the kids and still had to take some of the food. Paid about 50 bucks for everything. Would recommend
