We are huge fans of Italian food, and Christiano's delivered! Fresh, hot and as good as we have had anywhere. A great place!

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.

What a great place. Incredible service and a staff that went out of their way all night. it was my wife's birthday. They made her feel special and the meal was excellent. 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

I've lived in this area for over 20 years. I have also worked at many of the restaurants around here. This is, by far, the best Italian restaurant on the coast. The atmosphere is original and the food is amazing. It has become my favorite place to eat!

Discovered by accident but will return on purpose. This is an amazing family owned Resturaunt. The chef is the owner with years of experience. He only uses the freshest ingredients. The marinara sauce is non-acidic. You know it's a great place when you see smiles all over the room!

Our meal on a cold winter evening was great in every way. The service was excellent. The food was also excellent, and we enjoyed everything. I think the pasta dish was probably the best I have ever eaten, and the portions were huge
