My first impression when I got here was that the place has a pleasant lively atmosphere with lovely antique decor, impeccable service. They gave us several suggestions about the food and drinks, actually the owner daughter came to our table to say hello and check that everything was fine. The food was exceptional, totally homemade and the flavor like no one else. The prices are great. I encourage everyone that likes Italian food to come here. Definitely my favorite Italian restaurant in town.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
