    A traditional restaurant where the waiters are dressed in jackets and the accordion player knows many tunes to take one back to another era. Food and service are wonderful. Relax and enjoy the ambiance of another time. Mister Christini will probably visit your table to welcome you and enhance the dining experience.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 50th anniversary and from the moment we walked in we were treated like special people. The food was exquisite and the ambiance wonderful. Thank you Christinis' staff for making it a memorable night for us. Anyone looking for a wonderful place to celebrate a special occaision or have the best Italian meal you have ever had, should make a reservation for a memorable meal at Christinis.

    Can't say enough about the experience! They made us feel like family. Everything about the experience was top notch. We were in Orlando area for 3 nights, we left the last night open for dinner to wait for suggestion from Hotel when we arrived. There was no need, We booked Christini's before the dinner ended for a return visit. They ended the night with Long stem rose for the ladies. A pefect ending.

    Having gone to the restaurant entertaining important business contacts and clients, I have had exceptional experiences. This time was a client and myself with reservations. We were given a table stuck in the corner and right in the way where waiters were coming out of the kitchen, a lot of commotion and very noisy. This was hard to conduct business in. Also we do not eat a lot and are both on diets, we ordered soup and an entrée (pasta dish). We were cold shouldered by the waiter and got a special visit from the head waiter to make sure that's all we wanted and was obviously frowned upon. We ate as quick as possible to leave, very uncomfortable and the maître did not even say thank you as he usually does. A very disappointing evening.

    Christini's is a very elegant place for dinner. Light levels are low for a romantic evening, but bright enough for a group of 8. Our dining experience for our group of 7 was awesome. And the veal chops are AWESOME. If I had one negative comment, it would be the price of the wines on the wine list and mixed drinks. The wine list was good, but the wine prices were 4 to 5 times the price at a wine store, and normally restaurants are between 2 and 3 times the price in the store.

    We were greeted like we owned the place. The service is excellent. Had a wonderful time, our only minor surprise was seeing that this $$$ (3 dollar sign) restaurant was not listed as $$$$. Just understand that everything (food, drink, wine) on the menu is about 20% more than you might expect. Still great. Just be prepared.

    We were in town for a conference and chose Christini's due to open table reviews. They were also on our hotel's recommendations. Everything was amazing. The food was delicious, the service impeccable. There were 19 of us and we had a great time. Our waiter and sommelier both gave us great suggestions. The accordian player added great ambience. Next time we are in Orlando we would definitely go again!

    Definitely over the top in many ways! The greetings on arrival are very friendly and the staff accommodating. The food is good, very good. The gnocchi with Bolognese sauce was good. Homemade to be sure. However, the prices are over the top also! $12 for a plate of olives. $30+ for a pasta?? $80 for a veal chop? Wine prices were also higher then should accommodate the food. The decorations are definitely a throw back to a bygone era of Itlo-American design (circa 1950's?). Heavy on statues and heavy dark colors. The service staff's outfits appear to be from a cruise ship of the same era.

    Although the food was delicious, I thought the servings were skimpy for the price. We were hosting a business group of 11 and I felt as though the waiter was pushing everything on us. Instead of allowing us to review options, he was telling us what he was going to do. Very odd, and uncomfortable. My guests were a little confused thinking I pre-planned the dinner and that was not the case.

    Living in Manhattan and having the best Italian food at my fingertips I was sceptical about making reservations at Christinis. Thank God I did. Overall the experience was top notch and I would say blows any and every Italian restaurant in New York out of the water. If you are with your spouse and a foodie this place is a must try. Wait staff is superb along with the ambiance and food!

    We visited with a group of business associates and our experience was wonderful. The veal was amazing as were the appetizers (lobster ravioli- yum) and the wine was lovely. The service was really exceptional and the entire group had a wonderful evening. We will definitely come back to Christini's when we are in Orlando again.
