Absolutely one of the 2 or 3 finest restaurants in Florida.
Outstanding every time. Truly fine dining. I highly recommend Christina’s.
The very best restaurant experience with the very best service we have ever have! Thank you.
Christini's is not just a restaurant, it's a great dining tradition. Plan on spending two to four hours, as well as having an extraordinary culinary and service experience.
Christini’s is one of our absolute favorites. It’s a hidden gem in Orlando close to Disney and Universal. Authentic Italian at its best!
Our 15th anniversary dinner was truly memorable! From the service to the atmosphere to the food, I can't say enough wonderful things about our dinner at Christini's!!
Excellent- don’t miss the opportunity if you are in the area- family owned and managed.
Service, Food, Ambience all was EXCELLENT. TOP NOTCH! Only one complaint. Sparkling water at $15 a bottle, ahhhh...OK on first one, we never needed or wanted a 2nd bottle, but they just brought it out, didn't ask if we wanted another bottle and kept water glass filled to top. We didn't drink any more water and just left it there.
Hands down the best Italian restaurant in Orlando. Everything was fantastic. The ambience, the extremely high levels of service from friendly, very knowledgeable staff and the food was just WOW.
We will be back here many times for sure.
What a fabulous restaurant. The ambiance was fantastic. The food was superb. The professionalism of all the staff was outstanding. A perfect dining experience. My new favorite restaurant in Orlando!
Outstanding service and excellent food. Transplanted New Yorkers who enjoyed a nostalgic Italian meal in a beautiful restaurant reminiscent of New York Finest! We will be back.
All of the great reviews are correct. Every aspect from valet parking to desert service was on point. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about each dish and its ingredients and all of the specials are truly creations, not made to move a certain item. The osso buco of 7-24-2021 was perfect. Highly recommend.
Great experience as usual. Food and service top notch. Papa Christini should be proud. Daughter is doing great job of continuing fabulous tradition. Wonderful night with my parents and my wife. Will be back very soon. Thank you for a memorable evening.
Unbelievable service food and ambiance
We were two adults and two children. The experience was great and they were very attentive the whole time. My husband had the veal with lobster and I had the veal marsala. The kids just had plain pasta with butter and parmesan. The food was very good but a bit overpriced for the portion. They are very courteous, from the time you arrive that they take your car to the valet parking, to even opening the bathroom door for you. The manager came to the table and was very nice. The gentleman playing the accordion was awesome and he will play pretty much any song you ask for. Of course, he plays for tips. The reason we gave them a four-star is that we feel they were a bit overpriced and our night ended with the disappointment of paying $17 for spring water. We found it extremely rude the fact that they charged for water after we spent $140 on a bottle of wine. We've been to other high-class restaurants and they don't charge for water. Our bill came out to $332.
Best Italian restaurant in the Orlando market. Old school class with modern menus.
Had the best veal ever. Georgi was the server and was just helpful in every aspect.
Wonderful experience from start to finish- food, service
Very nice, classy restaurant. Excellent attentive service, wonderful food. Good music. Will definitely return.
Christini’s is our new favorite Italian restaurant and we will make a special trip to Orlando just for dinner there. My Husband ordered the bone-in veal parmigiana and I had the most wonderful veal saltimbocca. We will definitely be back here.
Our favorite spot in Orlando! The Eggplant Parm and service never lets us down.
Our new favorite. Food and service were impeccable.
Thank you, Kris & team, and Elli, for making our anniversary magical!
We made a reservation for Christini's when we read all of the great reviews. We had travelled to Orlando from Seattle for a work convention. Italian food is our favorite cuisine and we have a few select restaurants across the country we frequent. Christini's is now on this list. The ambiance was incredible and the service was beyond expectations. The food was fantastic. Overall Christini's was one of the best restaurants we have been to in a long time. Thank you
Unbelievable experience and meal. One of the very best I’ve been to.
Christini's was a wonderful experience for my wife and me (a great and much overdue "date night"). Attentive but not unobtrusive service was the perfect compliment to fantastic food.
Wonderful experience as always.
Food and Service was excellent!
My husband and I came here for my birthday. This was our 1st time dining at Christini’s. After being recommended here by a friend in Vegas this was always on my list of restaurants to try and this place did not disappoint in ANY WAY!! From the time I stepped foot into the building, service was A1. Alberto was our serve and made us feel like we were the only couple in the restaurant!
One of the best Italian restaurants in Orlando. Amazing food and impeccable service. Our server Alberto was wonderful! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great service - very attentive. Food quality as always excellent.
Both Veal Chop specials were overcooked and dry, fish special lacked flavor and was also overcooked.
It was a busy night, but we had hoped the food would have been better.
We took my son to Christini's Ristorante for his 15th birthday and we had a great experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, and awesome staff. Matthew and Alexander provided a superb service to our family.
I am giving this place a one star based on a very important principle. The food is great, the service is great, but when you have me take off my fashion hat at the door while you have people dining in with shorts and sneakers, and not even exaggerating one bit, you got your priorities screwed up. I know you have been around for a while, but if you don't keep up with the times or at least get your priorities correctly, you are not going to be around long. It's 2022 already. Get it right.
Good restaurant with excellent service but the price was too high. Hard to get a bottle of wine for under $100.
Service was too slow
I'm from New York and booked Christinis because it was recommended by my hotel. I was told that it was Italian fine dinning with amazing food with upscale ambiance. When I arrived on time, the restaurant was extremely noisy and busy and possibly because I was from out of town, they tried to cram my party of 3 into a table for two. This was extremely uncomfortable so they told me to wait for another table which was available one hour later at 9:00 PM. After being seated, possibly because the restaurant was overcrowded, the service was terrible. We had to wait at least 40 minutes between each course and didn't get out of the restaurant for several hours. My family and I have been to amazing Italian restaurants including Il Gabbiano in Miami, Il Mulino, Carbone, and Felidia in New York as well as great Italian restaurants in Rome. The food at Christinis simply was nowhere near as good and was quite frankly average. The restaurant serves southern style cuisine but the red sauces were average at best and the seafood served with the pasta was disappointing. Overall, while I was excited for our dinner, the restaurant was a big disappointment. With subpar service and average food, I would dine elsewhere. Even my dinner at Bice in Orlando had better service and food. This is a very noisy and poorly run restaurant.
Food was delicious, but was very overpriced for what was given. For example, I ordered the chicken parmesan and it was literally just a piece of chicken with sauce and cheese.
There were no accompaniments, not even pasta. For a dish that is nearly $40, I would have expected at least for it to be served with something. Accordion player was definitely the highlight of the evening. Waiters were very difficult to understand with their masks on and heavy accents. This restaurant does not have any iced tea, which is crazy to me, How can you force everyone to drink alcohol, water, or soda???? Also, need to de-thorn the roses better before handing them out to the ladies at the end of dinner.
This was our second time dining here & we were very pleased with the food and the experience. The staff was friendly and efficient and service was excellent. As expected, dinner was pricey, but “you get what you pay for “. We’ll definitely be back.
Excellent ambiance, food and service. Thank you
