If u like pizza cooked on a wood fire oven this is the place to go. Thin crust , great sauces and cheese. Cook to perfection. You can bring your own wine and only pay$10 corkage fee. We always sit outside. After the pizza we were to full to eat their yummy gelato.

Along the pinellas trail, a block away is a fine italian food stop. We had pasta and a salad and both were excellent. The waitress was friendly and helpful, the prices reasonable. This is the place to replenish the carbs.

Ok, I'm a food snob. Lived in Italy for 6 years so I know the food. Coal oven? Wood fire ovens I'm familiar with but this was the first Coal oven pizza ive tried.This must be popular in Pennsylvania i'm guessing The pizza was average and the wine of poor quality. Atmosphere was dismal; bare table tops with pizzeria ambiance... More

I have tried their Pizza as well as their other Italian offerings and everything is fantastic. It's a quaint little place with outside seating as well. Plenty of parking and the price is right.

We had the fresh mozzarella coal fired pizza. We were in heaven! We never had the perfect pizza until we tried Cristino's. WE also had their eggplant parm dinner and seafood pasta. All were amazing. We will be back when we are in Clearwater again.
