We had dinner here and had some delicious food. We went around 6 and the restaurant is small and was already very busy when we got there but they were able to sit our party of 7 very quickly. I had the sausage pizza and thoroughly enjoyed it. My brother had the chicken parmesan pasta and said it was the... More

Cristino's is one of my two favorite places for pizza. The restaurant itself is on the small side and the parking lot is often full, but there is more parking on the side.

I like Cristino's best for their pizza, which has a great, thin, crispy crust and rich, flavorful sauce. I also like their cheese ravioli with meat sauce.

Cristino's is a local favorite. They serve many items in addition to excellent pizza. Clean restaurant with friendly, efficient wait staff. Great atmosphere. If you are going around peak times, go early as the Resturant fills quickly.

This is the spot that my family like the most in the 3rd night of a 5 night vacation in Clearwater. The quality of the food, the portions, atmosphere and the prices make it an outstanding option. Tasty pizzas and an incredible Fruti Di Mare Pasta. Good service. We enjoyed it.

Thank Jesus R
