There is no better Italian restaurant in Orlando. Been to a lot of restaurants in my life, this is simply the best.
Servise, food and the ambiance is exquisite. Go there and be very impressed. You will also the owner that goes to every table and make sure you are good. Class act!

old guard place. If that's what your looking for great. This place is not progressive and unchanged obviously for decades. We thought food quality was fair for such a strong bill at the end of it. Once and done visit.

We had a reservation for 9pm, we waited until 9:50, and we still didn’t have a table to have dinner.
We were with 2 kids, and was impossible to wait more time.
Ridiculous.
If they didn’t have a table, why did they accept the reservation?!?
Not going back to this place!

No respect for clients.

While in Orlando for a Kitchen and bath/Builder's show, friends recommended this place. It was a 25 min. drive from Disnet area but well worth it. On a Tuesday night it was packed. They must have turned the tables at least 3 times. We had a 7:15 reservation and was seated promptly. The waiter team of Carlos and Siro were amazing. These guys made us feel special amongst a packed restaurant. There were plenty of large business diners. This is probably why we had to wait for the entres to arrive. I would have given them 5 stars if we didn't have to wait. It was that good. Cesar salad was authentic. Raviolis with pomodoro sauce was very good. My New York strip was one of the best I've had in a long while. If you get a chance, go. You will not be disappointed.

I have dined here before and had a great experience, but this time was not. Restaurant was slammed, they seated us outside and service was slow. Tables were too close together, and our server kept bumping into 2 of my guests. My wife’s food was not hot, either.

This is one of the best authentic Italian restaurants in the United States! This family owned restaurant has never disappointed me in the over 25 years that I have been coming to Orlando. I highly recommend it and Chris Christini is a true gentleman and great restaurantoure

I was with Randy with my Grandson and good friend Steve, and was totally impressed! The according player was a fantastic addition to the atmosphere of the place. Meeting Chris was the best of all, he made everyone feel important and his talking to my Grandson about his heritage (Greek) was really great. I know Randy sent in a review of the place, but I had to get my two cents in regarding the place....You are the BEST! Thanks for a wonderful dinner! Gail P Potter, President of Ohio Foam Corporation

Unfortunately, this new visit to Christini's was horrible. I ordered an ossobuco, and it became the worst ossobuco I ate (or tried to eat) in my life. They remove this item from the bill, and I thank for that, but we lost the night.

This was our second meal ever at Christini’s and the last night of a special family celebration trip to Florida for Christmas. The service is some of the very best we have experienced in the US. The food is so fantastically prepared you feel like you are in Italy. My New Yorker husband said it would be worth moving to Florida to be able to eat here whenever we wanted. Can’t say enough good things about this gem. Great food, a wonderful wine list and friendly, knowledgable, professional staff and owners. A must if you are anywhere near Orlando!

Excellent service provided by all we encountered. Alberto was our waiter and as always provided us with the great service that Christin’s is known for.

The Chicken Marsala and the Eggplant dishes are the best.

We come once a year to celebrate a birthday and have been for the past 4 years. We love Christini’s and their passion for good food and great service.

Having been raised in an Italian restaurant, I am very picky about Italian restaurants in general. The food was excellent but the Tiramisu was very dry for my taste.

The only issue was the accordion player. He played for too long and it was very loud for such an intimate place.

I highly suggest the restaurant if it wasn’t for that and I would always return while hoping the accordion player was on a break or vacation that night.

The food is made with excellent ingredients and if you want an excellent dinner and don’t mind the noise level of the accordion then you will not be disappointed!

Exceptional dining experience featuring friendly and attentive service, outstanding Italian food, and personal attention seldom available consistently in the Orlando area. The owner provides leadership that encourages staff to make every guest feel special and it is the perfect location for special family events such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We celebrated mother’s 92nd birthday tonight as we have done for the past nine years at her request.

Excellent food and service. We had the olives as an appetizer and they were so delicious. I had the gnocchi but paired them with their Alfredo sauce. The gnocchi were light pillows of tastiness. The sauce was creamy and delicious. I tried my husband’s dish which was fettuccine paired with their bolognese sauce which is what I will have when we return. Another person with us had the pasta primavera which she said was quite good. Looking forward to returning.
