As soon as you enter Christiano's you are suddenly in southern Italy enjoying the aroma, the hung paintings, the fresh flowers and the staff who offer a delightful atmosphere enhanced with an excellent wine selection. Our dinner presentation was very colorful because the sauce was bright red, and it was delicious! Our server knew how to take care of us... More

I'm keen on fresh salads and the Greek salad met all expectations--crisp greens and accoutrements with a light homemade lemon vinaigrette. The Seafood Fra Diavolo was delicious with just the right amount of spice with tender shrimp, scallops, and mussels. Loved the sauce. Warmed Italian bread was soft on the inside, crusty on the outside. Our meal was made with... More

Needed a last minute takeout to feed the horde. After reading TA reviews, we ordered 3 large pizza, salad and other stuff. Friendly service and the food was outstanding. It looks like a good Italian restaurant and we will try it out next time we're on 30a.

Both gentleman ordered seafood... More

We brought 20 people for our rehearsal dinner and they did a great job with the large party. Entrees are large. Everyone loved their meal.

Our meal here was exceptional. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by our name, we knew the evening would be special. And we were not disappointed. The calamari was delightful. Our Caesar salad was crisp with home made croutons. The seafood (scallops, clams on the shell, shrimp) over angel hair pasta was spicy and done to a... More

Loved our dinner. The ambience was wonderful. I had the lasagne and a greek salad. I don't think I have ever had better. The owner/chef came by to make sure we were happy. What a perfect evening!
