“Not great”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The service is good and the amount of food is good at a fairly decent price . However I found the quality of food not great-just mediocre-nothing special. I have been there 4times and not been impressed by the food.

“new chef- just not the same”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

my husband ordered his usual lasagne which is no longer made fresh- it's pizzaria style, where they take a dish from the freezer topped with mozzarella and re-cook. just not as good, and not worth the price..
Clams oraganata used to be delicious- these were salty and boring. so sorry, we always loved this place but were told they got a new chef a few months ago. not sure we will go back.

“Cozy Italian place near home”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Good food, good wines, decent service, fair prices...a combination hard to beat. Won't win any Michelin Stars but you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food and the prices. A good place to go to get out of the house without breaking the bank. Loved their risotto.

“Great meal and service at Cristina's”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We just moved to the area and went to Cristina's for the first time last Friday night - without a reservation. We were greeted and seated immediately. The service was fantastic from there - orders taken, drinks refilled.... very attentive without hovering.

The food was very good. The gnocchi bolognese at Cristina's was almost as good as the gnocchi I had at a more expensive restaurant in the heart of Rome. One small quibble might be that the bread in the basket could have been a little fresher, but we still ate it and it wasn't bad enough to even mention to our server.

I thought the menu options were numerous enough to have lots to choose from without being too much. We were seated in the dining area near the bar but noise from the bar was not an issue.

We will definitely be back (often) and will recommend to others.

I was really surprised to see a recent review saying the service was bad. Our experience - particularly with the service - was very positive!

“Awful service”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were a party of 4 adults and 1 child. We ordered appetizers and it took 1/2 hour for them to come. It then took another several minutes for the salad. The service was very slow. The hot antipasto was luke warm, the cheese in the rollatini wasn't even melted. The baked clams had all breading, no clams. We had to ask twice for them to bring the child's food. The server forgot. It took 2 hours to complete the meal. I would not return there. We went because of a discount coupon and we were very disappointed.
