Definitely follow the reviews; Crositinos not only has excellent pizza & the best homemade Gelato that I have ever had, it also has a terrific homey Italian environment. Everyone is super friendly and hospitable from the minute you walk in. The pizza was crispy & delicious; fresh herbs, cheese & sauce. Crust was awesome.. Flavors excellent! I can only say the same for their Gelato: hints of hazelnut & peanut butter to die for. We even brought our own favorite wine (10.00 cork fee) Every flavor is absolutely live! It's only a 10 min drive from the beach & well worth it. I will be back for sure.

This is a small Italian restaurant with nice charm. The service was outstanding as our waitress went the extra mile. House salad was large and vinagrette was excellent. Coal oven pizzas are their specialty and the pasta dish with salmon was really good with delicate noodles. Save room for gelato dessert. Would definitely return here if in the Clearwater area as this was a memorable meal. Prices are very affordable which is a big bonus.

This is by far one of the best casual restaurants that we have ever eaten at! Our hotel concierge recommended Cristino's or we may never have found it! We have been there on 3 occasions and have been thrilled with our food each time. We have tried all of the varieties of their homemade raviolis and love each one. I can actually say that they melt in your mouth. They are incredible! And, be sure to save room for their gelato! We found ourselves stopping back in the middle of the day for another gelato treat! If you are in the Clearwater area, plan one of your first meals at Cristino's because you'll want to come back another time before heading home!
