Absolutely ridiculous prices for small portions and nothing to write home about. $45 for chicken marsala. $24 for a glass of house wine. Insulting. Had the gnocchi bolognese and was up all night because the sauce was repeating on me. Beyond disappointed.

I would love to say this place was great because I love supporting locally owned businesses and this has been around a long time. I took my daughter here for Magical Dining to take advantage of the great price for a three course meal. We both enjoyed our appetizers - she had the penne pasta and I had the meatball. However, the entrees were a different story. It took a very long time for them to arrive and when they did my daughter’s chicken piccata looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. She took a bite and refused to eat another. It was very, very bitter/sour. I think they may have been a bit heavy handed with the capers. At that point, I asked our server’s helper to please pack up our meals and also box up our desserts. I mentioned that my daughter did not like her meal and that was no question as to why, nor any effort to make it right. It was at least a full 20 minutes before we finally had our desserts and we could leave. I understand that you are running a special menu but I would think that you would use that as an opportunity to impress and bring people back. I was not impressed - and will definitely not go back.

I had the meatball appetizer. It was tender and delicious. The sauce was very good without any acid taste. The eggplant parmigiana was outstanding. The cheeses in the entree smelled and tasted wonderful. For dessert, I had the cannoli. It was huge and delicious.

It was my wife's Birthday and being that she is Italian I wanted to take her somewhere that was authentic and Christine's proved to be simply amazing! The food, wine list and the service is truly the best in Orlando.

A place that makes a romantic evening truly Fantastic!

The ambiance and service was outstanding. The meal was good but overpriced as were the drinks. This was our second time at Christini's and we would go back, maybe once a year for special occasions. Not an establishment that we would go out to just for a nice dinner - too expensive!

This was my first time here. A client had recommended this restaurant. They said it was kid friendly. This restaurant is not kid friendly they have an age restriction on the front door no children 6 and under. My daughter is 7 and very well behaved. So we were still able to go in for our reservation. We dined here just the two of us. There is no kids menu available at all. However the food and service was amazing. It’s very dressy/formal attire to dine here.

Been awhile since we've been back here and not much has changed. Our daughter had never been so we decided to take her for her 1st time.The food was mediocre and the wine is extremely overpriced. Ambiance is nice and traditional with the accordion musician and roses for the ladies. There is so many other better and more reasonably priced Italian places I just do not see why or how people continue to come back other than the ambiance. Our daughter was sick the whole night from something she ate or drank. Diners beware!

From the time they opened the door the experience was amazing, great service , super attentive staff. We were celebrating a birthday for our boss and they made sure to make her feel special on her day. We all enjoyed the magical dining menu and our special drinks. mojitos and lemon drop martini , chicken picatta ,eggplant, gnochis , asparagus, everything was delicious. Dessert was a nice touch to finish the evening

Definitely a fine dining environment. Food was great on some menu items and just ok on others. Would have expected a little better for the prices. Cocktails and drinks are steeply up-charged compared to the average. It is a good option for those who really want Italian cuisine with an upscale ambiance. Accordion player was a nice touch.
