  • "My fiance and I were visiting this week in Houma ... we live in Orlando, FL. Had a fantastic experience ... very romantic, quaint, delightful food and outstanding service ... would highly recommend! Be sure to try their house salad ... it's exquisite!"

  • "We always have a wonderful and enjoyable time when we eat here. They don't rush the service and allow you to enjoy he meal at a leisurely pace similar to service in Europe."

  • "We had a wonderful experience. The waiter was extra helpful, the food was top-notch, and the only complaint I had was the lack of non-dairy creamer. That's not really a valid reason to cross Cristiano's off my list of number one restaurants. The marvel of it all is that it is located in lovely downtown Houma. Who knew? We go to New Orleans often to dine out, but now we will go to Houma, which is much closer to our home and has less of a traffic problem than New Orleans does."

  • "Food was better than expected and fresh. No complaints about the kitchen or chef. A gem for Houma. Not a big fish selection, but what they had was fresh. Weren't as flexible with our requests as other restaurants we've visited. Waitress had an attitude, but warmed up close to tip time. Atmosphere was cozy but a little small and tight."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. The food is delicious and a rare find. Complements to the staff. A bit noisy with children adjacent to us though. Seems there were other available tables they could have been seated. We will return!"

  • "The greeting as you walked in made you feel welcomed and appreciated. I had a reservation for 12 and wanted to put favors at each place. As I was escorted to the lounge, our tables were being prepared. The hostess came for me and even helped me get the favors to the table. Service was fantastic."
    Dined on 11/29/2013

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary there and the service was exceptional. Our waiter did a great job tending to us, and the food was delicious. It was a very romantic setting. I would definitely come here again!"

  • "There are only a few (three in my opinion) decent restaurants for "foodies" in Houma, Louisiana and this is one of them. That said, while the restaurant generally hits the mark there are certain problem areas. One is that while they sport a decent wine list, the first bottle requested is almost never available. If you eat there, have an alternate in mind ahead of time. Second, the wait staff could use a little training. I am pretty laid back but would prefer not to be referred to as "buddy" or "champ" by a waiter half my age when I ask for something. A little respect goes a long way."
