Traditional Italian at its Best

This place is a hidden gem ... Everything far exceeded our family's expectations. The food quality was outstanding ... The red sauce is perfect, the meatball pizza appetizer would've been a great meal on its own, and the huge lasagna was the best I have ever had. The service and ambience was... read more

Don't be discouraged by Christiano's location (in a strip mall). It's obvious that they do a great business and the restaurant was pretty full when we arrived. We were glad we made reservations. The hostess and wait staff were friendly and very welcoming. My husband ordered Linguine with Clam Sauce and he was delighted with his meal. The pasta was... More

Stumbled upon this place after checking for restaurants in the Santa Rosa Beach area. Went in with low expectations and were pleasantly surprised. I was a quiet evening when we were there...not crowded at all. The wait staff was pleasant and the food was superb. We were both pleasantly surprised. The location is such that you would not think it... More

Ate there with the family. Lasagne was great, but chicken parm suffered badly. Chicken was too thin and over-cooked. Noodles were not cooked enough. Salad was good as was bread and oil condiment. Costly for the quality and taste.

As soon as we walked in the door they were friendly and welcoming. We had extremely attentive service and the food was truly delicious. We recommend it to anyone visiting the area and will return. The bread was so delicious, salad was wonderful, the lasagna was indeed, "WOW", and the Tortellini was incredible. We loved it!!

Wow…why would anyone ever go to a chain Italian restaurant?! But don’t blink or you’ll miss it in the strip mall as you zoom by on Hwy 98. Once inside you’d never know where you were. It is well decorated and my wife says that it actually feels like you’re in Italy (she’s been, I haven’t). But the best part... More

We went there tonight and we loved it!!! The chef is from Pittsburgh and that was an added plus. He came out to talk to us and offered for us to call him about any questions we would have during our stay.

This restaurant has great service and delicious bread, pasta, steaks, and salad. Pizzas are awesome; great crust flavor, plenty of toppings and cheese. If you like mussels, get the appetizer in marinara. The best meat is the rack of lamb! But all the meats are really excellent. They have a nice wine list. For dessert, try the spumoni. It's delicious... More
