Christiano's makes the most amazingly flavorful veal chop I've ever tasted ANYWHERE including NYC and Italy. It's not a regular menu item... but if you ever have the opportunity to experience their veal chop: DO IT! You'll be thrilled that you did!!

Nice service. Salad was not a real Italian salad but something you'd get at Applebee'. Pasta sauces red and white were ok, nothing amazing.

Grouper Elizabeth, one of the best grouper dishes in the Destin area, maybe the best. Owner chief normally comes out to say hello, excellent service. Should make reservations.
