When moving to a new area, it is great when you find that one place that you not only enjoy but enjoy taking you out of town guests to. We love their pizza and it is our go-to place for something we know will always be great! Quattro Formaggi with tomato, spinach, and mushrooms is absolutely wonderful weather you are... More

I LOVE this restaurant! Try the large salad, with enough to share. Meats, cheeses and greens with a light balsamic vinegarette. There are more than a dozen entrees to choose from, but because we saw so many pizzas around us, decided to order one as well. We choose the one with goat cheese, basil, and sauce and added sausage and... More

We traveled from London where there are true Italian restaurants, Scallinis, Made in Italy, Sole mio etc with proper Italian food. It is disappointing to call the food served Italian, it has something from Italy but is only slightly better than fast food served everywhere in Florida.

Went to Cristino's after reading tripadvisor and I must say this is by far the best pizza I have had in the Bay Area. I have been to ClearWater/Largo area many times and failed to eat good pizza until now. Food was great service was quick, only down side the place was small and packed so it was hot. I... More

This is now my favorite pizza in the area. We were blown away at the taste. The best pizza is a pizza that gets better with each bite. This was one of those. The only thing I recommend is that the second time we ate here we ordered extra cheese. This is a big no no. It was way too... More

We saw a video on Cristiano's so decided to try it. I had the bianca pizza ( no tomato sauce) with pepperoni and sausage. It was fabulous! I have only tasted better pizza in Italy. The gelato was also excellent. Our server was great. The family next to us ate lunch and returned that same night for the gelato.

This isn't just a little place for pizza, it's a restaurant to get a great pizza. A brick oven pizza at that. This is one of the most delicious pizza's you'll ever enjoy. The place isn't that big and they do have outside seating so get there early if you want to sit inside. They serve beer and wine and... More
