Best Italian food in the area. The red sauce is amazing!! Fantastic service! Lasagna is a huge portion so splitting it is advised! Zucchini appetizer is great!

On our vacation from Ohio snow, we decided to take a break from seafood restaurants and chose Christiano's because of good reviews. We were not disappointed! This is some of the best Italian food we have ever eaten! Our server, Robert, was very attentive, but not overbearing. He made excellent recommendations and was attentive to our 2 young grandchildren. The... More

Being an Italian myself, it is always nicer when you can get a break from cooking and enjoy an authentic Italian meal out. This restaurant is a mom and pop shop and they are wonderful people. Great selection of menu items at a great price point. Food is always fresh and hot when served. Just like I like it. Wines... More

Such a good meal. Very impressed by the meal and the knowledge of wines by the waiter. The food was awesome and you will be happy to have visited this place. Alot of people think because it is in a strip mall that makes it less of a meal but not in this case. It was an awesome meal and... More

I've had the fish dishes, the pastat dishes, the veal marsala and most all the deserts...and it has always been consistent. Attention to detail set them apart, and the atmosphere. You won't be sorry you visited and you'll soon, you won't be a visitor, this place treats you like family!

We waited to review this restaurant only after several visits to make sure the quality was consistent. After tonight, we can say this is truly the area's best Italian. The food is hand crafted making each dish fresh and delicious. The service is also impeccable with the best ever knowledgeable and friendly staff. Overall, each visit including tonight exceeded our... More

I am afraid I cannot agree with the good reviews of this place. The food was average and the service nonexistent until I complained to the manager. In fairness the waiter was apologetic, claiming forgetfulness. I recommend any one of several other good italian restaurants in the area.

We had the grouper and shrimp pasta dish. Could have used a little more seasoning but being from louisiana we r a little spoiled with that. Will certainly... More

It was Valentine's Day and my husband found this lovely jewel of a restaurant, and made a reservation for our special night. We were seated by a nice lady, and greeted by a friendly waiter. I ordered a Bellini ($7 or $8) and my husband was thrilled to find one of his favorite and hard-to-find beers on the menu ($7).... More
