We went to Cristiano's last night, they open at 5. We had a reservation. They have plenty of dinning areas. We had a starter of Bad-a-Bing shrimp that was delicious. Their bread brought to the table was ever so fresh. My 7 year old had fried calamari as her meal. It was nicely cooked she really loved it. I chose... More

I usually order food to go from this place and have no complaints, but last night they missed the mark. The seafood soup there is usually divine but it was more gravy-like in substance this time around. More than likely the result of multiple days of use. The spaghetti and meatballs disappointed as well. The meatballs were so salty I... More

My husband and I ate here for a date night and it was awesome! We were both craving Italian and this really exceeded our expectations. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The Roscato Rosso Dolce wine was delicious as were the house and especially the Cesar salads. For our entrees we had the beef ravioli and the chicken tortellini- both... More

Went there with family expecting it to be better than it was considering the great reviews we had seen. My daughter and I had the chefs special Grouper Elizabeth which was very dissapointing. It was dry and over cooked. My husbands and son's Veal Marsala was tasteless. Veal was not tender. Clams and Seafood Bisque was very good. Fettuccini Alfredo... More

We have frequented this place annually since it opened six years ago. The place is authentically decorated and our service has never been bad. This time, we had Robert and our recommendation would be that you ask for him. His menu and wine expertise was impressive and his service was five star grade. We were the beneficiaries of a very...

Ths is excellent Italian fare with large portions reasonably priced. The wait staff is attentive while unobtrusive. The dip for the bread is amazing. The chef will prepare terrific veal parmigiana if asked!

Found Christiana's via Trip Advisor reviews and had not heard of them despite coming to Destin for many years. Then strip mall location made us wary. But I had their signature lasagna - outstanding!!Way too much for one meal so took some home. My wife had an excellent thin crusted tomato "pizzetta". House salad and house dressing were very good.... More

Our go to restaurant when we visit the beach! Have eaten there many times and never disappointed! I have had many of the pasta dishes, pizza, and just this week the Grouper Elizabeth, which turned out to be one of my favorite grouper dishes I have ever eaten!!! Also try the greek salad!
