Christini's Ristorante Italiano
Best Restaurant in Orlando -
With more than 45 years of distinctive culinary experience, I am convinced that success comes down to this: One restaurant, in one location, serving the highest quality cuisine, the best service and a friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy it. The experience of opening more than 19 restaurants and hotels (including five original Alfredo's of Rome in the US) have earned Mr. Christini significant recognition in the restaurant business, including the Fine Dining Hall of Fame Award and the Ivy Award. Christinis impeccable reputation has drawn celebrities and dignitaries from all over the world.

I have been to Christini’s several times in the past while in Orlando for conferences and business. This place is the real deal for Italian with a quaint and intimate setting. The food is fabulous and the service is outstanding. Christini’s is pricey but well worth it!
My favorite Italian place anywhere! Totally recommend Christini’s!
Expensive, but worth it for a treat!
The nightly specials are a great add. Sadly for the restaurant things are slow because of all the cancellations in Orlando due to coronavirus. But a bonus for customers as you get even more attention from the already remarkable staff
Old world Italian. Best eggplant I have ever had. Superb
Great atmosphere. Impeccable service
So good, I can’t wait for the next time!
We have always enjoyed Christini's whenever we have dined there. The food is superb and the wine list extensive. Our waiter Dan was a treasure. His recommendations were right on the mark and excellent choices. Our one friend (who announced that she hadn't had a "meat" ball since 2013) is still raving about the meatballs. Our thanks for everyone for a wonderful time!
We had a fabulous time at Christini’s Ristorante! This is a top rate professional established specialty dining experience. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like royalty. I loved the seating arrangements, the Decour, the staff and the accordion player added a special extra touch to the evening. This is a prime example of you get what you pay for! The food was fantastic, the staff personable and we had a very memorable time celebrating our nieces graduation! I highly recommend Christini’s to anyone visiting Orlando. A first class experience all the way around!
Best food I have had in a long time. The meatballs / calamari and veal parmigiana were the best I have tasted !! Can’t wait to get back
Amazing food, terrific staff! Highly recommend if your in the Orlando area!
Food and service were exquisite! We will definitely come again when we are in the area
Delicious every time
Nick was incredible, and Darius made the night with his music. This is a special place.
All around one of the best dining experiences that I have ever had: great service , great food and a very friendly atmosphere. The accordion player was amazing !
Best food and service anywhere.
Should be number 1 in country.
Must go. This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. I consider myself a foodie, have traveled extensively, and this is at the top of my list. Old world decor, extremely attentive wait staff, and the best food ever. When have you ever seen 7 different veal dishes on the menu? I had the Osso bucco and it was melt in your mouth delicious. My husband had the veal parm and it was tender and made authentically. No over the top sauce and cheese, just perfect.
The whole experience was noteworthy. I felt like I was in Italy. GO
Osso Bouco was excellent. Sea Bass portion was on the smallish side. Quite noise level was much appreciated. Waiter was a little to chatty but very pleasant and manerly. Eggplant sauce with the bread was to die for! Been there before and we will definately return. Accordian was nice touch.
Expensive and bad service
Delicious food, great service, and Darius in the accordion is a delight. Getting escorted to ladies room and getting rose at end of meal makes this a unique place to dine.
Always a lovely experience and this visit was no exception! We drive from Tampa to enjoy the delicious food, stellar service and ambiance.
This place is fantastic. If you want to be treated like royalty, then come here. If you want delicious Italian food, then this is your place...
Pretentious, loud and way overpriced. Wine list OK, but as a matter of principle, we will not order a bottle of wine that is marked-up over 2.5 times. The wines on the list we knew, were marked-up three to four times over high retail. Dining clientele appeared to be mostly people on expense accounts. Food was OK, but nothing special.
I celebrated my birthday here because I read all the reviews and all reviews are good, yes service is excellent all employees are friendly food is great. I’ll recommend this place.
Alberto was wonderful and so was the rest of the staff! Thank you
Amazing food, and the waiters are friendly and super attentive. A must see in Orlando.
WOW! Just WOW! The food, Service, atmosphere and everything was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant. We ate here 2 nights on our trip to Orlando it was so wonderful. They are known for their Veal. The homemade veal meatballs are amazing for an APP. The chicken marsala and Sea bass dish was delicious. We even met Mr. Christini himself. Such a nice man. Al the servers make for a great experience.
A favorite visit when in town. Excellent food, service and great authentic Italian vibe within the restaurant.
Great meal Great wine Great service. A must
The service is the best and the food beyond amazing... the place is beautiful setting and the man who plays music is great. I recommend to anyone who loves Italian food.
Always my go to in Orlando, Christini’s did not disappoint.
One of the best dining experiences that we have ever had. From the moment we walked in Vito was amazing. The service was top notch. The food was some of the best that I have ever had. Vito promised us a booth next time. So when we are back in Orlando we will be back for another visit.
Has to be one of the best restaurants in the country. Everything was absolutely perfect
Oh my where do I start? We eat here every time we are in Orlando. Amazing service! I got escorted to the restroom. Two waiters to every table. Table side music. Mr. Christini came and talked with us. His daughter too! Food is the most amazing Italian I’ve ever had!
We have visited Christini’s over many years. It always surpasses all other restaurants in the Orlando area. Fine Italian classic dining at its best!
BEST RESTAURANT IN ORLANDO! MY FAVORITE. EVERYTHING IS EXCELLENT!
I have been going for 20 years. Consistently one of the best dining experiences you will find anywhere. The Italian meat and pasta preparations are excellent and spot-on. If you want an elegant business, family, or romantic experience, you will not be disappointed. Every detail is usually anticipated by their excellent team; and if not, they make it happen for your table. I have never not had an excellent meal and experience at Christini’s. I go every time I am in Orlando.
If you want veal or Osso Bucco, this is the place for you! Long known for their excellent quality of veal, the preparation and presentation are flawless. I had the Veal Marsala, and my husband chose the Osso Bucco.. There is not one other place in Orlando that I know of that has both dishes on the menu. The wine list was fairly pricey, as were the entrees. Count on spending at least $100 per person, even without going overboard. Add a cocktail, a salad and a side dish with a moderate bottle of wine and it will be at least $200. But it is a treat, and a great restaurant.
