We stayed in a motel about three blocks from this restaurant so it was very convenient. It is a very small restaurant so we would have had to wait for a table inside. They asked if we wanted to eat outdoors but it was rather chilly out. After they told us they had heaters out there we decided to eat... More

The small cozy environment is great. Vibrant and lively. Super friendly and fast service. Great food. Got a cheeseless pizza (I'm allergic to dairy) for me with fresh arugula and the hubby got a loaded meat lovers pizza with 3 kinds of cheese. Smelled divine. Then everyone gets to try to frozen ice - my favorite is the lemon. Perfect... More

My husband and I brought our four kids here for dinner. We called ahead to find out about their gluten free options. They have a GF pizza, although there is some cross contamination because their oven is dusted with flour, and pasta on the menu. My daughter ate her entire 10" GF margherita pizza - it was so delicious and... More

Exceptional food, wonderful service! Definitely expect to gain a couple pounds, though! Lol. I'm a VERY particular eater and found myself unable to say no to my family member's offer for tastes of their food-- dishes I normally wouldn't try. Everything was phenomenal!!

This small and busy pizza place is always packed! The service is friendly and surroundings are very Italian. They have beautiful lights outside all year long which keeps up the beautiful setting. Our pizza was wonderful and so fresh tasting. The cold beer helped too. I just love this place!

Hubby and I were vacationing in Florida and had read in a Tourism Florida booklet about Cristino's Coal Oven Pizza so we knew we had to try it out. We were staying in the St. Pete's Beach area so the drive was about 45 minutes but it was worth every single minute. We started out with bruschetta and hubby also... More
