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

Perhaps we did it to ourselves, but this pizza had too much salt. We started with the four cheese pizza, which has feta, then we added black olives and a couple other toppings. We were very hungry or I don't think we could have eaten it. The service here is excellent: my cup was never empty and empty plates were... More

Visiting Clearwater when we saw this restaurant ranked high on trip advisor. We decided to give it a try and were very happy we did. The service and food was fantastic! The restaurant is very small with tight spaces, but overall the atmosphere was nice. Would definitely go back next time we are in the Clearwater area.

Cristino's is good, not great, not the best in Clearwater...just good. Their Pizza is OK, but no way can it be compared to New York Pizza. The place is clean, the staff is friendly and I would recommend this place. Just don't have really high expectation for the best pizza you have ever had.

From NY and have certainly sampled some very good pizza, including Coal Oven Pizza. This pizza was comparable to any NY pizza. Enjoyed the food and the service was great. Make sure you order their great fresh made Gelato for desert.

We got a recommendation from a friend that this was the place to go to and he was right! The food was so good! Staff was friendly and accommodating. We had pizza and our waitress recommended the carbonara. So so good! Def will be back when we go back to Clearwater.

Real brick oven pizza and gelato. The Margherita Di Lusso - Tomato sauce, homemade mozzarella, fresh sliced tomatoes, basil, oregano was terrific. After dinner we were brought to samples of gelato. We ended up buying two "small" cups of gelato. A great experience for a couple, a family, or a group of friends. Beer and wine selections are somewhat limited.
