We read about the hidden gem that is Christiano's on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. They had us from the moment the focaccia and dipping oil arrived! Deliciously warm, crunchy bread served with an amazing herbed oil. We definitely asked for seconds (and maybe thirds, but who's counting). Our group of 8 had a good sampling of... More

Looking for something outside of the standard seafood fare while vacationing on Santa Rosa beach, we decided to give Christiano's a shot. It quickly became our favorite restaurant...not just in the 30-A area...but anywhere! When we pulled into the parking lot of the strip mall, we had just enough misgiving to think about trying another place up the road. How... More

We discovered this restaurant on a 2013 vacation to Destin and now it is a favorite must do restaurant each time we return to the Destin area. The service is exceptional and the food is excellent. The soup called zuppa squisito is as tasty as a soup can get. As the menu says it is a zesty seafood veloute with... More

Having just arrived in town and been to the grocery store, Christiano's to go seemed a great plan. I asked for plenty of their fab bread, had shrimp alfredo-tasty but better when eaten there, and key lime pie-delicious and generous, it took me 3 sittings to finish the pie.

We always look forward to our meal here on our annual visit and it never disappoints us. The food is very authentic Italian, the pricing is very reasonable for the quality of the food and the service has always been excellent. I had Shrimp Pasta and my wife had Eggplant Parmigiana and both were outstanding. We split a creme brûlée,... More

My wife and I had a wonderful, weekend evening at this restaurant. Fresh bread as we each ordered a different salad, both were good. I ordered lasagna (it required 20 minutes, I guess they do each order individually - worth the wait), my wife had tourmaline, each with Chianti wine. Both were delicious. For desert we shared a piece of... More

The four of us wanted to enjoy this restaurant, but, alas, could not. We went for dinner. Two of us ate lasagne, one had spaghetti, and one had the grouper Elizabeth special. The bread was delicious and the Caesar salads were very good. Robert is an excellent server. But our enjoyment of the meal stopped there. The lasagne and grouper... More

We found a hidden gem! This is located just outside of Destin on Hwy 98 in Santa Rosa, but well worth the drive! The ambiance was very pleasant, the staff made you feel like royalty, the bread and dipping oil was divine, the white pizza appetizer is a must try, lasagna was the best my husband has ever had, my...

Me and my family went here after reading the great reviews, and they were definitely right. The food had great presentation, large portions and tasted great. Service was good, and the restaurant itself was nice and definitely had an italian feel to it. The lasagna was huge in size, pasta was great, and everything came out nice and hot. Would... More
