Had lunch here recently while in the area. Delicious pasta and pizza. Seeing the place less than overflowing enabled me to see how small the place really is. Amazing how they pack people in at night. It's the great food that brings people in.

Had company in town and had heard good things about Cristino's Pizza. We all decided to give it a try. It's not a very big place, warm and friendly, and tables are close enough to have a conversation from table to table. It's like being in with family get together. The staff and wait people go over board to make... More

Amazing crust. High quality ingredients. Fresh basil. They have it all. Not the widest selection perhaps, but the pizza is fantastic. It's also really nice to sit on their patio. And don't forget the gelatro

Delicious pizza! My husband and I enjoyed our meal on the patio! To me it had a European feel. I recommend Christinos!

We've never been disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive service. The pizzas are great. Good restaurants in downtown Clearwater are hard to find.

Had a great dinner here, with my husband. Both enjoyed our meals, I had chicken piccata and he had ravioli. Started with the chicken wings, which is one of our favorites, they have great flavor. Cant leave without getting the gelato, the the nutella one. Had a great meal at a very reasonable price.

We have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed our meals. We typically have a salad with our entrees and I can't think of anything we haven't been pleased with. At the end of each meal you are given little spoonful samples of their gelato and it is soooo good! Great casual dining, good service. 👍

On vacation needing a local place for a bite to eat and found this on my phone's app. The reviews looked good so off we went. Had a pizza to go the first night. Great fresh ingredients and I'm not a fan of pizza. Great slice sizes, like the kind I got as a kid a few decades ago. We... More
