Food was very good. However, I dint at fine restaurants all the time. $15 for a side of pasta( about 4oz) when you paid $59 for a just a piece of chicken?? Really? $50 for seafood pasta and i left hungry. Said NO ONEe ver when they leave an Italian restaurant. We asked for more complimentary bread and were charged. Who charges for more bread?? We were a family of 3. If you actually fed your customers maybe they would not need more bread. I asked for asparagus light on the oil. Sent ot back twice as the rude waiter brought it twice saying there was no oil on it. It was soaked in it, How can a fine restaurant not figure out how to cook asparagus with out soaking it in olive oil> Over $200 and all 3 of us left hungry. I have NO problem paying that much for a meal. But a meal we did not get served,...more like leftovers, Liked all the staff except our waiter.
Outstanding meal, in a space that could be characterized as cozy!
Christini’s is a must do bucket list restaurant in Central Florida. This is truly one of Orlando’s finest culinary landmarks. There is no wonder why Christini’s won the coveted IVY Award and is the most awarded fine dining Italian restaurant in Orlando. The menu is a classical interpretation of northern Italian cuisine with many world famous dishes. Bon Appétit!
Wonderful restaurant, and so authentic. FANTASTIC Italian cuisine and truly the finest staff. Alberto was so friendly, inviting, charming, and caring, ask for him when you book your reservation!
This restaurant is absolutely wonderful! Everything from start to finish was very authentic Italian, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys fine dining and a unique experience.
Awesome dining experience. Great selection and service. Enjoyable atmosphere and appreciated we could still carry on a conversation.
It was a business dinner. My guests loved it - from the accordian player who took requests to the old-school decor and excellent service and food. I blew through my expense budget. It is pricey.
My go-to restaurant every time i am in Orlando. Arguably one of the best authentic Italian restaurants on the east coast outside of NYC. Expensive but worth the splurge. If you do see what you want on the menu they’ll make it for you. Extensive, impressive wine list and the owner, Christina, is a legend and a true character. I started with a Cesar salad and then had the veal with lemon and capers. The veal was tender as butter and incredibly flavorful. Highly recommend for a great dining experience in a sea of mediocrity which is Orlando.
Excellent food and service
Service was amazing! Wine was incredible and food was spectacular. Highly recommend it.
A nice touch at the end of the night, I was handed a long stem red rose. As a business traveler, the rose is welcoming in my hotel room.
I really enjoyed that meal. You guys are terrific!!
Excellent service! Great food. Stuff is very professional, I enjoyed live music by a very nice polish gentleman
Food was great and service was exceptional. The place has a great old school, cosmopolitan vibe. But damn is it expensive; unnecessarily so. Pasta dishes are inexpensive to prepare, and are usually moderately priced in most good Italian restaurants, but here they are high $20s, low $30s. 16 oz veal chop was $84.00. No, that’s not a typo.
Definitely worth a visit, but save some money before you go.
Have been going here for past 15 years. For the first time we were disappointed with the veal Milanese which was thin, dry and perhaps overlooked. Service was and hopefully always will be the thing that keeps us coming back. One bad Milanese has not deterred us. To the next visit 🙏
Outstanding food and service. Reputation is well-earned!!
great authentic Italian food...large portions ...accordion player is excellent
First class service from the minute we walked in!
This restaurant was amazing! The ambience was fantastic and our waiter Alberto was outstanding! We will definitely go back when we are in the area again!
The dining experience, food, ambiance, staff are always top notch. Would recommend any time in Orlando.
This was a wonderful experience in every way. Starting with the welcome at the door, the service, food and ambiance were absolutely fabulous. I've traveled extensively to NYC, LA, San Francisco and all the major areas around this country, and I can't think of a better experience than we had at Christini's. The accordion player was a special extra touch, who took requests from every table. It made it feel even more authentic and each table special. They concluded the evening giving a rose to every women in the room and Mr. Christini himself was at the bar and couldn't have been nicer to these out of town visitors. This is a must if you are in Orlando.
Brian and I have been customers of Christini’s Restaurant since the early 1990’s and the food & service is always exemplary. Thank you for another fine dining experience
By far the best Italian food we have had in the United States. Service was excellent, but not rushed. The servers were willing to accommodate special requests.
Try the white anchovy appetizer. Out of this world!
Great job ownership, chef(s) and staff!
We will definitely return when we are in Orlando!
Best service ever! Food was excellent! Ambience was amazing! Will definitely be back!
We were promised an elegant meal experience and they delivered! Service was impeccable, food was amazing and the ambience was perfect!
Outstanding food! Great service!
Best Italian in the country!!
Been here at least 20 times and never disappointed
Food and service outstanding Not cheap but worth the price for special occasions I come here every tine I visit Orlando. Accordion player is great and makes the entire experience special
We come here whenever we go to Orlando. Best Italian restaurant ever.
It was pricey. But that Hass to be one of the best sauce that I’ve ever had
Amazing food, service and ambiance! We highly recommend the veal and the tiramisu.
Perfect in every way. Waiters are fantastic and the food is excellent. Great atmosphere.
Great service a little too much over sell of app special the pasta and calamari were great the large shrimp was too bland the osso buco was spot on the chicken parm was good deserts just decent we will go back order different apps and pasta wine list extensive and pricy
Christini’s is upscale authentic Italian dining. If you want the very best cuisine and service...look no further.
A little pricier than expected but totally worth it. Food was great, veal was to die for and the service was absolutely top notch. Great place for a special occasion
Outstanding, no place better in Orlando or Florida for that matter.
Seafood Ravioli had a strange/weird taste to it. The floor of where the booths are located shakes like an earthquake everytime a waiter walks by. The light level was so low that we had to use our iPhone lights to read the menu. That is just too romantic to eat any food if you can’t see it!
The waiter’s service was excellent, hence the reason for mu 25% tip.
Exceeded my expectations in every aspect: food, service, atmosphere, miscellaneous details. I didn't want to leave and I can't wait to go back.
This is the best restaurant in Orlando hands down. Has an old school feel to it. Blends the formal with casual perfectly. Everything in the menu is terrific
Best anchovies ever. Very attentive service. Excellent presentation.
Christini's restaurant was very nice. The waiters were all kind and attentive. I was disappointed that only one of the staff was truly Italian. Most of them tried very hard to use Italian words and "pretend" to be Italian. They didn't quite pull it off. I think the entrees are very good, but also over priced. Maybe, $45 for a veal dish would be more reasonable than $62. The accordion music was lovely and added a lot to the ambiance. Giving me a rose at the end of dinner was a special gesture.
Fantastic dinner! Great food, superb service. Great business dinner location.
