  • "A little hard to find if you aren't from the area as there are several marketplace areas in the close to each other. But once we found it, it was good!"

  • "Food and ambiance were always excellent. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Made our anniversary extra special. Strolling musician and rose also a good touch."

  • "The food here is great but might even be surpassed by the service. The staff treats you as if you are the only person//couple in the restaurant. Not overbearing but there whenever you need anything and very responsive. It is not an everyday place as it is expensive but it is definitely a place to go occasionally"

  • "We were here for the second time, celebrating our anniversary. Although it is quite pricey, it is well worth it! The wait staff is so very attentive! The food is wonderful! They specialize in veal and seafood and since it was a special occasion we indulged in both. Lobster ravioli and gnocchi for appetizers were superb! They added many nice touches since they knew it was our anniversary, special cocktail, special dessert, accordion player at the table (he was in the restaurant but gave us special attention also). A rose to leave with. Very old school dining room and menu but sometimes that is what is missing in this hurry scurry life. No rushing here! We will be back!"

  • "On my first dining experience at Christini's I was amazed at the level of dining, wine and service. Located in a rather non-descript mall, the first surprise is entering an oasis of calm and civilized dining. If you're looking for the latest "buzz" in food, this is likely not the place for you. But if you want to experience a thoughtful menu and wine list, superb service, and a kitchen that produces then you must try Christini's."

  • "Took a large group here for dinner after hearing good recommendations. Ambiance is fun - Classic Italian. Friendly wait / bus staff and sommelier. The (Greek!) owner came over to speak with us and tell us about the olives grown on his farm in Greece. Mozzarella and Jumbo Shrimp appetizers were very tasty. Dinners were all good - including Chilean Sea Bass, Ravioli, Veal Scallopini, Lamb, and more. Nice desserts shared among us. Only two issues: Upsell, upsell, upsell. Waiters who upsell without informing you of the price annoy me. Gratuity: I only noticed later, but this is the first time I have had the automatic gratuity added on to the tax! (typically, gratuity is added to the total before tax.) Overall though, a fine dinner!"

  • "Christini's is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando. Not only is the food first class but the service is beyond excellent. The staff is very very attentive from the Valet that parks your car to the bus boys. Everyone is there to make your dining experience personal and memorable. If you don't take the chance to dine at Christini's you are missing a life time food experince."

  • "The staff is there to take care of all your needs. Sitting in a booth makes it more intimate. It can get noisy and busy. But it adds to the fun and joy of eating such wonderfully prepared and delicious food. Veal is the meat of choice."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "The prices have gone up on the food and the wine list is now off the charts. - $81 the least expensive bottle. Very disappointed as this was one of my favorite places. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "As soon as I walked in, I felt transported to another place. There was a elegant and at the same time rustic old world charm to the place. The menu was simple and it was very easy to choose something to eat. The food was phenomenal. When I mentioned simple, it does not mean boring or plain. The secret of this place is that when they prepare the food, all the fundamentals are done right. The flavors complement each other, the presentation is excellent and it was delicious. "

  • "Over-priced. Period. I will remember not to choose a restaurant online again when it doesn't list prices on its menu. We are used to spending money on fine dining, but this doesn't qualify. Not impressed."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "It took nearly an hour to get our entrees after our appetizer..they said was related to one in our party requesting gluten free pasta..guess someone had to run across the street to Publix to buy some...also wine list is way overpriced...bring your bank account to dine here. The food is great but I think experience is overall overpriced. "

  • "Went with a group of customers and executives during a conference and the service and place were just outstanding. I loved the food, but service to me is most important and it was top of line. "

  • "Being a super food snob I always walk into a Italian restaurant with reservations (pun intended). The food here was outstanding albeit pricey. The service was excellent and I would gladly go back the next time I can wrangle up $250 for dinner for two. "

  • "Whenever we are in the Orlando area we try to dine at Christini's. We have always had a good time and have recommended this restaurant to family and friends. In an area with a lot of chain restaurants, we appreciate this privately owned establishment."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Food and service were great. Valet parking is a plus. Rose at end of dinner for the ladies was the end of a perfect meal. A little pricey, but well worth it. Our guests from Chicago, said best penna pasta ever."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Excellent service, ambience, and food. Be prepared to pay for it as it is pricey but you get what you pay for. Attentiveness beyond compare and treated as family. This should be a 1000 point reservation."

  • "We have dined at Christini's whenever we go to the Orlando Area, at least 6 times. It may be the very best restaurant we have ever been to. We are people that have traveled extensively and this has to be our favorit restaurant."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "This is truly a great restaurant. Pasta is as it should be perfectly al dente. Sauces are all great. I had Chilean Sea Bass which is not something I would typically order at an Italian restaurant, but it was superb - on a bed of delicious shrimp rizotto. Torn between that and the Fra Diavolo - next time. Service was excellent and genuinely enthusiastic and helpful in serving us. Alcohol prices were a little crazy, but otherwise, perfect. Thank you."

  • "This dinner was very special and even more so made special with excellent service that we received. As soon as you walk in you forget that your in Florida it feels like your in Italy in a high class restaurant. The waiters we very attentive and very knowledgable with the menu and specials. Definately will be returning for another special occasion."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "From the time we entered, the service was superb, the decor was subdued and tasteful. We ordered and the food came in excellent service. My Caesar salad was perfect. The Pinot Grigio I had with it superb. My wife.s traditional Italian bean soup was excellent she said. Then my main-veal chop, perfectly breaded with just the right spices mixed in. Sumptuous. As fine a dining experience as we have had in Orlando. Not cheap (an understatement) but worth every penny."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "If dining experiences were a horserace, then Christini's would be a KY Derby winner!! Absolutely the best Italian dining ever enjoyed by these two Kentuckians!! Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Very romantic, exquisite dining. Our meals were true authentic Italian dishes prepared perfectly. The tuxedoed staff added an elegant flair to their efficient and friendly service. The decor truly beautiful. The roving musician brought tears to our eyes and joy to our hearts when he played My Old Kentucky Home on his accordion. A very memorable evening and one we intend to repeat whenever our travels lead to Orlando."

  • "We were in town for NCAA B-Ball tourney and haven't been here for a few years and it's actually better than I remembered. Truly an outstanding restaurant."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Our service was attentive and lightening fast -- too fast. It was clear they wanted to turn our table and we felt rushed out of there. They were nice and the food was good, but I like a more relaxed evening."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Food was outstanding and worth the expense. Service was great and the whole experience was what a fine dining establishment should be. Minor complaint- decor is a bit too stuffy for my taste."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The quality of the food was superb, but compared to other restaurants in Orlando, this place is overpriced. Especially the wine menu, they could easily place some high quality wines on the menu in the $40-70 range. Most wines on the menu were $99 and up. To top it off, our waiter spilled some wine when pouring and he did not apologise or offer some form of compensation. At their prices, we lost $20 of wine."

  • "i brought my girlfriend here for our anniversary and it was certainly a night to remember. the food was great, the way the tables were placed gave the place a very homey feel. the ambiance, even though there were people all around us, made it feel like we were the only two there. the restaurant is a bit expensive but completely worth it."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • ""Fabulous" is the only word to describe this restaurant. We travel to Orlando four or five times a year and have been known to have dinner there every night. The Chicken Parmigianino is the best in the United States. The shrimp and the lobster Fra diablo are incredibly good and the veal chop is to die for, I could go on and on, Some might think the prices are high, but the food is worth every penny and then some. Consistency is their mantra, after more than a dozen visits I have never had a meal that was not excellent and the service is impeccable. What's better, you are treated like family at your first visit. I have yet to find a better Italian restaurant anywhere in the US and I have tried coast to coast."
