"Now that's Italian"

Great Italian food from Lasagna to Wood fired Pizza. Christiano's is a must visit for us every time we visit the area.

A family member took us to this secret place this autumn and it was soooooooo good!!! We've visited Destin for years and wished we had been every year. So delicious. Staff were amazing, friendly and welcoming. We had a big table, booked in advance and a range of ages. We all ordered different and each meal was super. Be warned... More

We were so looking forward to dining here, as we really enjoyed it the last time we were in the area. Four of us went on a Monday night (was that the problem?) and only one enjoyed her meal! She ordered Shrimp Tuscana and was very pleased with melding of flavors, the tenderness of the shrimp and crispness of the... More

Have not been to this restaurant in two years and was disappointed. We found the prices quite high and the quality of food was not as good. I had a shrimp dish that was very good but my husband had chicken parmesean and it was very overdone and very salty. My sister had pasta with clams sauce and it had... More

On a recent trip to Santa Rosa Beach, we had all but given up hope of having food that would come close to justifying the sky high prices they area tries to charge. THIS was the find of the trip! Ignore the shopping mall exterior and be welcomed by a fantastic staff that actually is HAPPY you are there to... More

Christiano's is one of our favorite local restaurants. My wife and I have never had a disappointing meal. The service is outstanding. And when we just want to grab a pizza to go from somewhere, there is no place better than Christiano's!

We went for dinner as a group of 10 and were seated in an ante-room and so we didn't get to see the main restaurant area. Our server pretended to be Italian and to speak French but this soon unravelled when he found that some members of our party could also speak French and he finally confessed to neither being...

The food is always excellent and the staff is more than friendly. If anything is wrong (rarely!), just tell them and they will make it right! We are locals and there are a ton of restaurants in our area. This is our "Go To" place for an evening out!!

We tried Christianos because our favorite Italian Restaurant is temporarily closed due to a fire. The food was quite good, the atmosphere is very dark and quiet, so if that's what your looking for this would be a good choice. They don't have a bar, so beer and wine is all you can get. I don't think we would go... More
