Very nice, cozy, friendly, Italian style restaurant in the heart of Zakopane. 2 adults, 1 kid. Lamb stuffed ravioli, seafood risotto, seafood pasta, lasagne. All very good, particularly the risotto could compete with it’s peers many places even in Italy. Marscapone based fruit dessert light...creamy and delicious. The service friendly, quick, smiling. Not low, but fair priceMore

To be honest we did not have high expectations for restaurants in Zakopane. We were expecting relatively high prices and lower quality of food and service compared to elsewhere in Poland. Sadly this seems to be the case in most places according to various reviews....Cristina being a hotel restaurant did not really raise my expectations but we decided to give it a go because of the good reviews in Tripadvisor. Fortunately we did! The restaurant is clean, modern and stylish. You would assume expensive prices but this is not the case at all. They are maybe a little bit more expensive than typical pizzeria prices elsewhere in Poland but not significantly. I think this restaurant is a great value for your money. The location is great and close to Krupowki. The service was good and prompt but nothing special. The food itself was terribly tasty. We both ate pizzas which were so good. Frankly I did not except to find such high quality Italian restaurant from Zakopane. I would highly recommend this place.More

The food here is actually incredible one of the best italians i have had for a long time. However is hugely let down by the staff that we had dealt with and I feel that other people should be notified of this. Before visiting Zakopane...this is one of the top restaurants i wanted to visit so as a family of 8 this is where we headed first. Apparently they don't take reservations so we stood in a small que for a large family table. We all ordered our food i would say slight language barrier but we all got by and looking forward to the meal. When the mains got served we had ordered 2 fillet steaks but 3 of these appeared - one rare and two rare-medium but were both asked to be medium -well. There was 8 of us and 9 meals appeared we asked politely to return one of the steaks as nobody wanted an extra meal. But the waiter wouldnt have this said no loudly slammed the plate down. That meant the two people with the steak didnt end up eating their meals as he refused to take them back and cook them for longer. We were all really taken back by this which really the meal ended on a bad note. When we came to pay we paid for all 9 meals even though i would say is a waiter error, he did apologise and said he would take it back. But by then we had all finished and paying the bill - HOWEVER food that we did eat was delicious just let down by the service.More

A busy restaurant is a good sign, so we didn’t mind waiting 40 mins for our takeaway pizza. So glad we went here for a true Italian oven baked pizza. The restaurant itself is super cute with a authentic Italian street dining atmosphere. Definitely worth...a change from a solely polish restaurant, especially as a veggie, there are more options here. They should definitely get on to garlic dipping sauce though, for the crust!!More

Clean modern restaurant serving fresh tasty food at realistic price. Visited (twice as that good) with family of four and had Pizzas, pastas and risotto. Service was excellent, pizzas delicious (and large) and pasta great. 4 mains, a focaccia and 2 rounds of drinks came...to approx £40, would happily have paid double. When comparing to another restaurant in the area that was more expensive, tired decor and below average food only highlights what a gem this place is. SuperbMore

I have found Cristina Ristorante to be the best Italian restaurant in the city and also one of the best restaurants in Zakopane. The service is friendly and professional which delivered a great experience. The food is of high quality, with notably an amazing and...authentic seafood. Looking forward to visit Cristina again.More

Before the visit I have found a ranking, and Cristina Ristorante & Pizzeria was between first positions in the ranking of Zakopane restaurants.Pizza was very tasty and was cooked in the "Italian style" with thin crust.We have visited this restaurant two times and were not...dissatisfied.On the second visit we have ordered here grilled octopus and black pasta.Also if you prefer some kinds of alcohol, please ask a staff, not all positions are in the menu.Giving you only 4* from 5, because service level can be better.More

Notmuch to recommend here. Had quite high hopes and in a nice location. Service was quite stand offish and it was clear we were just being regarded as passing trade. Really don't like giving negative feedback but it was bordering on rude. Food was Ok.

The pizzas are absolutely delicious! We (2 adults + 2 kids (8 and 10 years)) have been eating here last time we were in Zakopane 2-3 years ago and were still talking about the delicious pizzas - so when we were to celebrate our 10-year...olds birthday - the choice was easy :) They made the cutest teddy bear pizzas ever – and the kids loved it!More

Pasta with borowniki and blanche Pizza was delicious but I think octopus salads were a bit overrated. However staff is really nice and speaking English. Prices - midrange. Would repeat. 👍🏼
