We have dined at Christini’s many times and have enjoyed it every time. The food is always excellent and the service is superb! The staff understands the importance of timing presentations of the courses to the dining experience. We’ve never come away with any regrets.

This was my celebration of my 65 birthday and I told my wife we had to go here for dinner. This was her for first visit as I told her several times all about it from several of my business trips. The ambiance of the restaurant was more than she could imagine. The service is second to none with the staff who served our meals. Met with the manager who found out it was my birthday so he shared a special desert for us. She definitely wants to come back again! Thank you for such a continued tradition of excellence.

Found this place by walking by and it's hidden. We decided to try it one night and once you walk inside you feel like you in Italy at someone house almost. Your greeted right away and once seated you have a number of people at your service. They keep the table clean and tidy through every course. The wine selection you go for days. The food authentic Italian and tastes amazong... sea bass is my favorite by far and the gnocchi is amazing.. it's a must try and an experience on it's own.

This was my sixth visit here and I brought a very good friend for his first visit. I’m from Seattle and I come here once a year when visiting Orlando. I just love this place. The bar and cocktail options are classy as is the decor, music and wait staff. The wine list has most of the common Italian and regional wines plus a few extraordinary choices. The best part, however, is the food which is very authentic Italian-style. There is also a gluten free pasta as an option. With drinks, starter, dinner and a nice bottle of Italian wine the total bill with tip was $125 each. So, the overall rating for this place is a 5 from me.

This was not a first time visit. I have been to Christini's on numerous occasions while visiting Orlando. In my view, there is no better place to have Italian food in the country. We always receive excellent service and the food is to die for!!!

After 20 years living in Orlando we finally found this restaurant. The food and service were exceptional. I recommend the appertizer sampler. It was perfect to experience that portion of menu. I wish I could give it 5 stars however the noise level in our area was very overwhelming. A location switch was offered, but we choose to see if it would lessen. I would also suggest the wine list. Finally, this was our 34th wedding anniversary dinner and with a lower noise level it is a perfect date location. The roving musician it unbelievable playing any song ask. Remember to tip these folks as well.

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.

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 .
