I visited this restaurant for lunch in a hurry during a visit to Clearwater. I thought to grab a quick slice of pizza... Was very surprised by the quality and freshnes of the ingredients as well as their good service. The personal pizza is enough for two people... Ordered one and had extra for a hotel snack later that day.... More

We are Canadian tourists and found out about the place on Trip Advisor. This place is not big and it is busy and that is a good sign. The is most competent and this is evident as they are busy waiting on tables and ensuring clients are well looked after. The place was packed at 5:00PM on a Saturday and... More

Made a stop here after seeing the TA reviews and wanting some brick oven pizza which our family loves. Got a large Margherita de lasso and it was essentially devoured within minutes. So good that we got another large to go two days later and promptly finished it off before getting back to the hotel. We didn't add any toppings... More

Whether you choose a pizza or spaghetti, you can't go wrong with choosing Cristino's! The service is awesome, as well. Be sure to get there early or on a nice day, sit outside and eat! :)

I ordered the salmon, I'd say it was ok, the veggies were pretty standard fair, the potatoes were sparse but tasty. It was mediocre, could have been presented better. The pizza looked great, I'd stick to that in the future if I return.

The fresh tomato, pepperoni and basil on this oven baked pizza was fantastic. The pizza was served piping hot from the oven. Server was most pleasant and efficient. Definitely worth a return trip for pizza and for the many other options on the menu.

I agree, it's great pizza, nothing they served me came from a frozen plastic bag of ingredients. I ate outside, attentive service, place had steady stream of customers the entire time I was there. Give it a try, and save room for their house made coconut gelato!

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.
