We chose Christiano's for our last night in Florida. Carmen gave us outstanding service- helping us choose great dishes and checking with us throughout the meal. Food was delicious with generous portions. The guys finished every bite, but we ladies had enough left to take home. The food was so good we forgot to take pictures for the review. I... More

This place is very assuming. It's located in a strip mall and doesn't look like much. The food though... WOW. From the starters to the main dishes everything was excellent. The fried zucchini is fantastic. It's crisp and light and tasty. The mussels are great too and come with a delicious sauce. The lasagna is phenomenal and the portion is... More

We really like their pizza here. A lot of their main dishes and apps are great too! It's just a little pricey for what you're getting. You can only class up a strip mall restaurant's atmosphere so much in an attempt to justify prices that are too high.

My family and I had dinner at Christiano's this evening and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server, Carmen, gave very friendly and attentive service. Our food was outstanding - flavorful and prepared with great attention to detail. The Alfredo sauce was the best I'd ever had. At the end of our meal, the owner came to our table to introduce...

I visited this place to celebrate my dads birthday last Thursday night around 7:30 p.m., we were seated promptly and greeted accordingly, GREAT food and fast service, the chef comes to the tables to see if everything is good and that adds a great touch to the service, PIZZZA was sooo big we could not finish it but it was...

Italian food as it should be. Made fresh, great sauces, great service. Wasn't sure what to really expect with this being in a strip shopping center, but do not let the location fool you. Nice atmosphere inside, with a very attentive staff. Decent wine and beer selection. This is now on our list of must visit again places whenever we... More

My husband and I are on an anniversary trip from Missouri. We saw the good reviews on here for this restaurant and decided to try it. So glad we did! Hands down probably the best food we have had since being in Florida. The fried zucchini appetizer was delicious. I had manicotti and he had grouper. Both were amazing. And... More

good food, good service. I work at a resort and there are guests who ALWAYS go there. The food is very good. We have been several times and always enjoy it. We even went there one evening for our anniversary.

We were in the area when Hermine was hitting Florida, although it was clear and calm here just 80 miles away. Not many people, since many left the area with the Hurricane evacuation warnings just to the east of us, so we had the place almost to ourselves - excellent service and attention by the staff and Christiano. Our group... More

Authentic, superb, real Italian cuisine with an outstanding atmosphere. Don't be turned off by the strip mall location. Along with the wonderful food and romantic flare you'll be treated with piano music and indescribable service. The owner/chef came out and personally checked on us and introduced himself. Save room for one of the home made desserts...Magnifico!!! It has moved to... More
