We are allowing for 2 hours dining time for each table and ask that you call us when your entire party is present. At that time, we will let you know if your table is available and authorize entry. If you must wait, you will be asked to do so in your vehicle and you will receive a call when your table is ready. Please keep in mind that lounge and patio seating is also by reservation only.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while we try to navigate unfamiliar waters, and look forward to seeing you!

My meal was great but my husband's steak should have been medium rare but it was super raw in the center. He sent it back to be re-fired and it was better but it was too late by then.

I have talked on several platforms about the amazing, delicious food that we have eaten at Cristiano’s. But I need to touch on another aspect of this establishment, the employees!!
I’m a Disney person, and Disney calls their employees Cast Members. Well, Cristiano’s cast members make each dining visit magical. Whether it’s lunch or dinner, the members give you their all! I feel like I have been invited to their place and they do anything and everything to take care of us. They wave hello, ask how we are, know what we like to drink, or just stop by to say hi!
They make us feel comfortable, and makes my meal even better knowing I have someone who cares about making my dining experience extra special!! Thanks to you, all!! See you again soon!!

The service was top notch, our server Phillip was very well versed in the menu, he knew the daily specials like he created them himself. He’s my favorite server there, always polite and makes the overall experience better than it could be. The food was excellent as always. We are very lucky to have such a great restaurant in this small town. I’ve travelled to many places and never received the service and quality of food that is put out at this place. Thanks Chris for being so dedicated to making Cristiano’s the best place to eat in all of Louisiana!
