Christini’s was lovely as always. The food is amazing, but the service is truly what shines. It comes right down to the details of the service- knowing why you are there from walking in to walking to your car, the expertise on the wine and the menu, the pleasant escort to and from your seat, the accordion, and so much more.

Overall, the evening was excellent, from the food and service. However, the wait staff (4 of them) were pretty close to the table (by the stairs) just chit chatting away and it was distracting from the evening . One of them talked to Brian at the host stand, but instead of walking to the podium, he was by the table talking down to him. The accordionist was wonderful and was a lovely ending to the meal

Top notch service and excellent food prepared in the most wonderful old school tradition. Expect to spend for this and expect to be completely satisfied, if you are looking for a value restaurant expect to be disappointed. This is for people who appreciate good food and service!

Always a fantastic experience here. Service and food is second to none. A bit pricey, which is the reason for the 3 stars on value. But always worth it.

Great place to take customers but had issues with noise level. The gentleman that plays the organ is extremely loud and never stops playing which caused difficulty for us to have business conversations.

This place was very overpriced, especially for what you get. I ordered a seafood ravioli, one of the less expensive dishes on the menu for around $40. I got a total of SIX ravioli supposedly filled with lobster, which was completely indiscernible. My husband ordered a side of spaghetti with his entree and they instead brought a side of penne. The $ Caesar salad tasted fine, but again, for the price was relatively small. We ordered wine to be brought out with dinner which came instead before our appetizers. Our guest had just been served his cocktail when the waiter brought the opened bottle of wine and poured, so he had to sit with his cocktail and glass of wine in front of him before any food arrived. It took forever to order dinner after they brought the premature wine and at the end took forever for them to clear our dirty dishes. We sat with them at our elbows for a good 15 minutes as we conversed with our business acquaintance from Belgium. The location of this restaurant is in a shopping plaza next to a grocery store. I would never imagine the prices to be as inflated as what they were. We will never go to this restaurant again and certainly not recommend it.

Always my favorite dinner when we vacation in Orlando. Rudy and the rest of the staff are the most professional group you will find.
Plus the accordian player is fantastic.

Wonderful evening. From the moment we walked in the whole staff made us feel at home. It was my daughters 24th Birthday . Everyone told her Happy Birthday. Food was impeccable. We all had something different. Veal, pasta, fish. Everything was very good. Don’t go there with a shallow wallet. Cause your gonna want to have a full experience. And it’s worth it.
