Description: A warm candle-lit atmosphere and soft piano music in the background is what you will find at Cristini. The new Manager, Angelo Grazioli believes that it is the simple things that please the most. To achieve this, he offers a selection of Italian starters and fresh homemade pasta along with a wide choice of main courses made using only the freshest and personally selected ingredients and featuring monthly speciality dishes. All this is accompanied by an extensive wine list which Angelo delights in recommending with true Italian passion and gusto. The staff are attentive without being intrusive making Cristini a cosy neighbourhood and a smart destination restaurant for fine Italian food, a romantic Dinner for two, a quiet place for important business lunches or a perfect dinner party setting for special guests and occasions....

“Worth trying..”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cristini gives the impression of a family run restaurant, It is certainly better than many Italian restaurants in London. There are creative dishes in the menu such as past with truffles or almond and orange risotto. I tried pasta with truffles, which was tasty but somewhat oily. The grilled vegetables were quite ordinary. I think the risotto was impressive but, it could have been improved by adding some small colourful ingredients. The service was good. Expect to pay 70=80 USD for three course meal and a glass of wine and water etc. It is certainly worth visiting.

We had another great New Years dinner here. Angelo is a great host. The pappardelle is amazing. Thanks for an enjoyable evening. This place is a must have when in London. Great food, great service and great ambiance. See you soon!

“"pleasant though expensive"”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Surprisingly small restaurant, a little cramped for our table for two ! My chicken dish was very pleasant my wifes pasta dish average! The menu is not extensive but some interesting options! Did think the wine which was "fairly" pleasant was a little expensive at £34.00 though! Over all it was a pleasant enough evening but at over £90.00.....would i recommend it? Probably not!
