Stumbled upon this gem one rainy night. Best pizza in Clearwater, by far. Nice outside patio-style tables but full so we sat inside. Service was speedy. Had the garden salad and a Marguerita pizza with pepperoni. Served hot but a little overcooked. Next time I'll ask them not to cook the pizza well-done. Place was packed. Get there early.

It's Soo like a tiny family place in gritty Brooklyn. We got there near closing time , and the friendly staff so wanted to show us the fine offerings! A nice wine. and Great sauce with interesting pasta made me want to stick around! The staff was simultaneously at "the family table"... I wanted to go over to ask if... More

It's next to my kids doctor. We have been wanting to come here for two years, and finally made it last night. We can't wait to go back. We came for the pizza only to be delightfully surprised that is only a small percent off what they have to offer. The pizza pleased the four of us. The kids had... More

Had lunch here yesterday (10/8/14) with my daughter. We sat out on the patio. Very comfortable and nicely shaded. We had calamari with marinara dipping sauce for a starter followed by a Margherita pizza with sausage for me and Caesar salad with grilled salmon for my daughter. Haven't been to Cristino's for awhile and glad to see quality of food... More

We are moving in to this area and wanted to explore the surroundings and see what we could find last weekend. We saw some reviews for this place and decided to try it. We chose patio seating because the day was bright and sunny and it was pretty good. The chairs are a little uncomfortable personally for me, but I... More

Yes, great pizzas for the gourmand; also paninis and usual Italian fare cooked expertly with freshest of ingredients. Parking is a challenge. Come early or late for lunch.

We visited Cristino's on a double date with some friends on a Saturday night around 6 PM. It wasn't terribly crowded, but the inside seating is small and was already full. We chose to sit outside, which is really quaint and it was (miraculously) nice weather. The menu offers lots of options for Italian food, all reasonably priced. We ordered... More

Great place to go with the kids or even for a date night. High quality food with very reasonable prices. Dinner at Cristinos has become a regular night out for us! Love it!

Cristinos is one of those small places that surprises you with the quality of the food. The outside patio area is very quaint; the inside is often a bit crowded and the service can be slow but worth the wait. Get the eggplant rollatini appetizer!

We used TA to find a restaurant nearby and landed at Cristino's. We wanted to sit outside, but it was a tough decision after we walked into the restaurant. It smelled wonderful and the dining area was very attractive. We still chose to sit outside. The server was great, friendly and went out of her way to be helpful. We... More
