I did take out, so I'm not sure how great the table service is but, judging from the service I got and from what I could see as I was standing around, it's more than competent. The food, itself, is excellent and I would most certainly go back. It was surprisingly good, actually.

Ultimate in dining. You will love it. Brunch is great and fun! You can sit outside weather permitting. Service is great with a family or solo. Its an old home that has been renovated to accommodate the restaurant.

Cristiano's eclectic style of New Orleans cuisine is a culinary bridge between two "boots," Louisiana and Italy...this is proclaimed in the restaurant's website and is absolutely accurate. Cristiano Raffignone is a native Italian who has made Louisiana his home. His love of both Italy and Louisiana is evident. Along with his local partner, Kelly Barker, a real gem is hidden... More

Cristiano's specializes in northern Italian cuisine. They are known for their chargrilled oysters so we ordered them as an appetizer, and they were wonderful! They have a short seasonal menu of creative dishes, and I might have chosen the duck, but we were in a steak mood, so we ordered the filet mignon from the regular part of the menu.... More

This is the best restaurant in town. The place is unique, the food is delicious and the service great. It is great for seating at the bar for a few drinks or a full course Menu. I've been there so many times and it was always great.
