Went there for the 1st time on a date the other night and the whole experience was awesome. The atmosphere was great, the lounge was awesome, the food was delicious and the on line seating reservation was very helpful. We were seated on time and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Highly recommend for anyone.

Phenomenal experience as always. Sierra was our server and she is knowledgeable, personable and has a exquisite attention to detail. The pasta dishes were unparalleled and the steak was the perfect temperature. The salads were fresh and crisp with a uniquely flavorful dressing. We were surprised with a special dessert for the birthday boy. This was a memorable night on so many levels. Thank you Cristiano!!

Absolutely one of my favorite places to eat. The food and service is always excellent, and the atmosphere is amazing as well. Truly some of the best culinary experiences that I have ever had, have been here. If you are a fan of charbroiled oysters, Cristiano's are the best that I have eaten anywhere.

The food and service were excellent. A table with other patrons next to us were being a little more loud and obnoxious than I would care for when I am trying to have a romantic evening. We were given a glass of champagne to help celebrate our Anniversary which was a nice touch. Always recommend this restaurant and will return again.

My wife and I had selected Chrisiano's based on reviews online. When we checked into our B&B, the proprietor told us it was one of the best restaurants in town and he was absolutely correct! Wonder service and the food was excellent! We plan to make this a regular stop every time we travel to Houma.

Maybe it would have been better had we gone at a different time. There was a large group there and I almost couldn't hear my husband over the noise. Also, I thought the tuna steak was entirely too peppered. I've had better experiences here in the past.

This definitely wasn't our first visit, but we chose it on this evening to celebrate St. Valentine's Day a little early. Be sure to make a reservation because on some nights, without one, you won't find a table. The reason is obvious...The elegance and charm of this restaurant can't be explained. It's cozy, romantic, and quaint, yet elegant and upscale. The service is always impeccable, and the cuisine is spectacular with seasonal menus that are truly creative culinary works of art. The General Manager, Cassie Babin, takes a hands-on approach to management, exemplifying the importance of attention to detail to all of her staff. The wine list is exceptional and obviously has been carefully considered with some of the finest choices. We will certainly enjoy repeated dining experiences at this Houma gem. Thank you Cristiano, Cassie, and staff for giving our city a top notch place for special occasions, Sunday brunches, romantic dinners, and just any time that we're in the mood for an enjoyable evening.

Great food with great service. I had the penne pasta with braised short ribs and three cheese sauce. It melted in my mouth and was delicious. The waitress however did not give me my leftover when I asked her to box it. Atmosphere was also cute.
