Our server, Carlos, was terrific! Very attentive and friendly. The entrees were a little pricey - but delicious. The bread and accompanying dip was amazing. We dine out often - in New York, Philadelphia, and throughout the country - so we are picky. Christini's is a very good alternative amid many chains in Orlando.

Have been there many times before over 25 years. The challenge this time is that the timing for entrees to come out was too long. Clearly it was a busy night so I didn't expect things to be quick but this was a good hour plus past the time our salad plates were take away, Ordered two bottles of wine for a table of 5 and a 20% gratuity (on total bill including wine) was automatically added to bill. Great food but overall not what I expected.

I had not been here in years but it did not disappoint, just as I thought! it was a 50 birthday for a special lady and she loved every second of it, the service was impeccable and the food was outstanding, this is not a restaurant to be missed if you like fine dining, and in saying that don't go without your credit card and if you are worried about price over service and ambiance and a fantastic meal then don't go either..Just sayin.(but its not that pricey) so don't get me wrong,
I will be back again without a doubt, thank you all for a great night, it was fabulous.
Mr V, sat 28th at 8.pm

Thanks again for a great time, you made her day.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on October 27, 2017

Christinis was one the best experiences we have had since living here. The food and service was definently 5 star. We have dined At the grand Floridian resort and spa ,Victoria and Alberts. The atmosphere is more elegant there,but the food at christinis was outstanding. The service Was not only very professional , but it wasn't stuffy , and it was also fun. My husband's 66 birthday was on the night that we went and they made it so very special it was unreal . The Accordion player named Derek was outstanding .He could play just about anything in made everyone's evening even more special than it already was . We definitely recommend this restaurant if you've never been there, don't listen to any bad reviews, it is wonderful . THE food the service ,everything about it, you won't be disappointed .

This was our second time to Christini's. We go once per year usually. This experience wasn't as good though. Food wasn't as good as before and the service was very slow...almost two hours. Our waiter wasn't very personable, although I tried to talk to him. He wasn't interested what so ever, but spent quite a bit of time at other tables, hince the reason our dinner took forever. We had him l ast year too and he was much more interactive. I will return, but not anytime soon. For the money, I'd rather go somewhere else.

We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was very disappointing. The portion was approximately 1/2 cup of small calamari rings and greasy. The size of the rings were about the size of a thumb tip. Smallest portion ever! Veal Marsala was two very small slices and a potabella mushroom slice was hidden underneath to make you think you had more veal. Cappachino was served Luke warm. A lot of hype but overpriced snd not value!

 (Orlando)·Dined on October 7, 2017

Sorry, but I won't be back. The food we had was good, not great. Service was good but I left feeling annoyed (see below). For this kind of $ I'd rather go elsewhere.

Went during magical dining deals. Asked to see drink menu cuz my gf likes to order signature drinks at fancy places like this. We were told there was no such menu so she settled for a standard, dirty martini. Now that a drink was ordered it seemed we were finally allowed to see the menu at which point I asked for magical dining menu and, what do u know, it included several drinks for reasonable prices. My jaw dropped when my bill came and I saw that a Grey goose martini cost $22.50. c'mon. Really? Everything here is expensive and u know that going in, but this to me is excessive, coupled with the fact that there were tastier-sounding cheaper alternatives on a menu which supposedly didn't exist.

There were a couple items on our final bill that we didn't order so the server removed them promptly.

We had a great meal and overall it was a nice experience - not sure we'll return. I'm a homegrown Floridian and have never wandered into Christini's. We finally made the drive on a Thurs. evening and the service was great, the ambiance was sweet and the food was just good. We got the calamari and Caesar salad for starters (both delicious), the fettucini and salmon (don't get the salmon) and a cannoli for dessert. The wine was tasty and the food was good, but nothing to write home about. For the price, I think other local Italian restaurants offer competitive menus at a better price point so would we go back? Maybe. Could it be your personal "spot", maybe? Everyone should try it at least once! It's a similar experience to Christners or Mortons.

The restaurant was extremely loud and it's design is very old school and unappealing. The food was just OK, nothing more, and the dessert was very disappointing. Even though we were there as part of Orlando magical dining, I feel that we overpaid for the experience.

From the greeting at the door to our exit after dessert our time spent dining was fabulous. The attention to detail and service was exceptional. The food was superb!

This stands out as one of our best evenings dining in a long long time.

I had not visited Christini’s for several years , my first visit was about 25 years ago, and found the food and service as good as ever. The menu has not changed much in allthose years which is Ok with me since I live out of State and visits are not frequent.
I will visit again when in the area and recommend to my friends.
