My husband and I went to Christiano's with friends after having bought a Groupon for $45.00 ($90.00 in food). They had been several times and so I was on the lookout for the coupon. From the minute we walked in the door the experience was fantastic. We each ordered something else and shared a little. We started with the fried zucchini and it was by far the best I had ever had. It was very light, crispy, and you could actually taste the zucchini! Each of our dishes were humongous. We all took leftovers home and those leftovers gave two extra meals per person.Our four meals were $104.00 including tax. Our Group0n was for $90.00. We tipped $20.00 for the meal. The total cost was $124.00 and with the $45.00 Groupon our out of pocket cost was $20.00 per person. Now, that's a great deal! I have already purchased another Groupon for my husband and me! A very nice touch was live background Christmas music from a high end keyboard! If you are in the Destin area, you must try this wonderful restaurant. We are going back for sure!

We eat at Christiano's whenever we visit Santa Rosa Beach. We are never disappointed. Great food, good atmosphere. Bang for your buck!

We recently visited this restaurant during our thanksgiving holiday. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. There was live piano/organ music that played holiday tunes. We were greeted warmly by our server who was a kindergarten teacher during the day. She was great with our kids. We had the crab ravioli and zuppa squisito and both were excellent. For our main course we had the clams pasta, alfredo, and baked whole fish that was to die for. Desserts we had tiramisu and key lime pie. All in all it was a wonderful experience. We would definitely be back during our next Destin vacation. This has become our favorite restaurant spot!

In a land of chain restaurants and bland food this place stands out. Creative Italian cuisine and good wine selections. Good service.

Charming interior; warm, friendly ambience; deft, professional service. A manager at Sandestin pointed us to Christiano's--thank you! What a find! Innovative menu made the most of fresh local ingredients. Appetizers and entrees were perfectly cooked. Generous portions and attentive service. A tableside visit by Chef Chris topped off a great dinner; unfortunately, we were too stuffed to try one of the desserts. We'll definitely be back.
