Recently took friends who'd never eaten at Christo's to the pizzeria/restaurant for dinner. My companions enjoyed sharing an Original Greek pie and a couple of salads. I was going to order the veal Marsala, which I believe was $18.50, but the waiter mentioned just before I ordered that the special on this particular night was a braised veal shank with risotto. He had me at veal shank so I ordered it. It was not a miserable dish, but not a memorable one either. The shank meat, what little there was on the bone, was tough and gristly. The rice, if it was arborio (it did not appear short grain) was tough in some spots, perfect in others? How'd they achieve that? Combining two pots was our only guess. But the offensive part of the evening came with the check. Christo's is not inexpensive. The pizzas average about $20-$22 each, and the entrees average about $19-$20. But the special was billed at $31 and the waiter never saw fit to mention that price when he described the dish. I believe when a special is almost 70 percent higher than the most expensive item on the regular menu, it should be disclosed to diners. Even if it had been perfect, it would not have been worth $31. It should be noted that the staff isn't known for its hustle, and the hard-wood floors keep the din loud, but we always return. We would just avoid the special or at least inquire about its cost in the future.
