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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
