Heard so much about this place.mbeing a beach local I tried it and our party of 4 was disappointed. It was good but not worth leaving the beach area! Also a little on the expensive side compared to local spots at the beach and Island Estates.

Was told how good this place was for a while. Decided to try it this past weekend. Called in and picked up the order with no issues. From the 1st bite of Bianca pizza I knew it some of the best I have ever had. The crust, cheese with a basil topper was awesome. There are other coal oven pizza... More

We drove up from Ft. Lauderdale to see our favorite performer and we luckily stopped at Cristinos for a bite after the show. What a pleasant surprise! The best pizza we ever had!

We have eaten here on multiple occasions and always have great service and food with generous samples of gelato to decide which flavor... More

The pizza here is delicious! We first visited during a trip in 2013 and remembered it so well that we went back on our next trip to Clearwater. It's not walkable from the Clearwater Beach area, but it's definitely worth the ride. They do not have a typical children's menu, only smaller servings of their traditional Italian dishes, so be...

Great food. This is not your pizza chain pizza. My family and I have tried everything on the menu. Most of the servers are very attentive. Last visit ours was a little disappointing.

Excellent service, but the pizza had minimal cheese and was burnt. The fettuccine has absolutely no flavor. Would not go back.
