My wife and I had Dinner as the restaurant opened at 5:00. We were the only diners for 45 minutes. The food was good and the service was very good. The owner/chef Chris came out and greeted us which was a nice touch. He indicated that since the main tourist had left the beach diners were eating later. Before we... More

Baked Feta appetizer was delicious! We tried Shrimp Tuscana, Seafood Fra Diavolo & kids spaghetti - all great! The seafood dish was spicy so if you don't mind a little heat - try it. Sadly Too stuffed to try any of the yummy desserts. Chef/Owner came out & checked on everything. Carmen & staff were all so nice!

Our family of 5 ate here for the first time last night. The location is convenient to our hotel in Sandestin. We had the rack of lamb(amazing) Grouper Elizabeth (amazing) veal Marsala and also chicken Parmesan (both delicious as well). Our server Carmen was welcoming and made our evening special.

We were celebrating a family event while on vacation. We had 2 children and 1 baby. The server was wonderful! She put up with all of our antics and laughter. Our water glasses were kept full and our dishes were cleared by friendly staff. We felt welcome and special. The food was very good. We had appetizers and bottles of... More

We have gotten back to Christianos in the last few months and we are glad we have!! Their food is excellent as is the service ---Robert and his wife Alexandra are terrific. The mussels in marinara sauce are some of the best we have ever had--the seafood soup continues to be delicious. Don't forget the fried zucchini. The pepper steak... More

This is my second review of Christiano's and it is even better than I remembered. You would think that a restaurant in a shabby strip mall on 98 would be ok but Christiano's is terrific. You can't go wrong taking the family or large group for a fun evening out while on vacation. The staff is friendly and inviting and... More

I have eaten here numerous times over the last 6 years. Each time the food, service and location has been the best. It might be overlooked by the casual traveler because it's in a strip type mall, but no mistake it's the best place to eat in the area. Fish and Itailian food, the best deserts. Not open on Sunday.
