I had a business lunch here and the food was delicious. The dish that I had was a fresh papperadelle pasta with grilled chicken, sundried tomato and artichokes in a light tomato cream sauce. Can't wait to make another trip to Houma real soon! Service was excellent and the restaurant is in an old home.

We decided to sit at the bar and share a couple of dishes instead of eating in the dining room. The lounge (Louisiana for bar) was dark wood and quite nice. We had their version of steamed mussels with lots of delicious warm bread to sop up the juice. It was one of our favorites ever and we've eaten a LOT of mussels.

We followed that with their charcuterie platter. It's an assortment of interesting meats and cheeses. It too was delicious.

Both dishes went well with our bottle of red.

Our only complaint - and it's minor considering we ate in the bar, was the folks drinking a few spots away from us. Loud I can handle, but loud swearing bothers us.

Cristiano's offers a very wonderful dining experience from the delicious food, excellent service, and unique and decorative atmosphere. Their wine selection is great and should not disappoint the wine aficianado. This is not your "typical" Italian-style restaurant; much effort is put into making all the dishes (from the appetizers to main course right through dessert) stand out and be noticed. While some may complain portion size is small, they are satisfying and no one in our group went home hungry. Cost is high, but I think this is a place where it's worth it. Celebrate your special event here; it should make a memorable experience.
