This is a great 'Mom and Pop' Italian Restaurant. There are some cozy tables in nooks for tables of 2 and some larger tables for family dinners. It's always been excellent food and service. Salads are cold and crisp, entrees hot and delicious. They have pizza & do pizza carry-out, too. Reservations accepted. Happy hostesses and servers. Owners are on... More

The food is not excellent, it is good. As with any Italian place, its all about the sauce. I prefer a tangy tomato sauce. The sauce here was darker and more seasoned than I care for, but everyone has their own taste. We started with the melted feta appetizer, which was enough to share. Never had melted feta, especially at... More

Very high quality ingredients and professional preparation. We had a pepperoni and sausage pizza. It was outstanding. However, the highpoints of our meals were the cannoli. Just incredible. The owner is in the kitchen and quality control is excellent.

My wife and I were returning her rental car and the agent asked if we liked Italian. We both replied in the affirmative and so he fetched a map and showed us where this wonderful restaurant is--in a little strip mall on the north side of US 98--but told us to withhold judgement until we ate. We drove the 8... More

Christiano's is so welcoming. As soon as we sat down we felt so relaxed. The food was awesome and a beautiful presentation. We live in the area and I recommend to everyone to try this wonderful place. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to bringing our out of town guest to Christiano's.

Second trip here recently, and every bit as good as we remembered from a year before. Warm and friendly greeting, as if into a family's home. Chose to sit a the bar, where Robert greeted us the same way. Took our wine order (from a modest but nicely pan-Italian list), complimented us on our choice4s, and offered a taste of... More

My family had dinner here while vacationing in Santa Rosa. My son & I split the lasagna which was huge!! Very good. Loved the bread & seasoned oil for dipping. Our waitress was very pleasant too.
