If you are looking for great Italian food at a fair price this is it. Coal fired Pizza is excellent. The wife and I also shared a plate of Carbonara and it was fantastic. They also have Gelato that is absolutely delicious.

Cristino's is the best pizza in Florida. Coming from the north I had been searching for good pizza for YEARS! Cristino's is by far the best. Their crust is thin and crispy, ingredients fresh. I have brought people here from all over the country and they all agree on the great pizza. Don't eat too much pizza because the homemade gelato is the die for.

There was a long wait but the servers were nice and tried to get us a table as quickly as they could. The crust was thin, but crunchy, just how the family liked it. It was child friendly, and they had leftover boxes if we couldn't finish. Overall it was very good and we plan on going at Christmas

Stopped by during vacation at the end of July. Sitting is available inside or in a covered area outside. It was raining and we opted for the inside seating. Nice and clean, nothing fancy. We were waited on quickly and ordered Pizza and Caesar salads. The pizza was outstanding, sauce homemade and fresh salads - excellent!! Waitress very efficient and tended to all our needs. Prices are very reasonable. We stopped by around 5:00 p.m. and on our way out parking can be tight in the lot, so you may have to park on the street. If you like pizza, you will like this place!! I would definitely stop by again.

First of all, when you drive up to a restaurant and cannot find a parking space, you know you are at a restaurant that is going to be worth the wait. We were immediately seated and enjoyed a fantastic coal fired pizza. Extremely fresh ingredients, a crisp yet chewy crust; only a true Neopolitan style artisan could create such a pie. On a side note, the wings were crispy and unique with the fresh rosemary, garlic and onion. Please enjoy this experience!!!
