Lovely restaurant with indoor and outdoor covered seating. Extensive menu however, many pizzas being served, so tried one and was I happy. Nice thin crispy crust, fresh basil from their garden, excellent pizza! Service was terrific also, can't wait to return!

With a menu that starts your mouth watering, this gem offers all home made pasta. We started with a small pizza as an an appetizer, it was superb. Then, the seafood pasta had a generous amount of seafood, the Penne ala Vodka was delicious, the manicotti was creamy with generous cheese, and the crab ravioli with vodka sauce was decadent....

Even though there was a bit of a wait for a table, the food made up for the wait! We ate outside under the lights on the heated patio and enjoyed a super Italian meal. Everyone at our table raved - especially those who ate the lasagne and manicotti and the homemade gelato was a perfect ending to the meal.... More

Just ate at Cristino's for the first time. They crab filled ravioli was very good. The topper though was their tiramisu, never had it prepared this way and we loved it. Staff was very accommodating and never rushed us. We were in for the day visiting friends, spent 2+ hours no problem. Huge menu will return to try something else.

Had the Margherita dilusso pizza and it was just O.K ,the rating on TripAdvisor is overrated considering there is lots of other places in Clearwater with good food.

I am a pizza snob who grew up in NYC in a big Italian family. Cristiano's measures up! Minimal ingredients for maximum flavor!

Went prior to a concert at Capital Theater, not a fine dining atmosphere but the food has been great both times we went. Definitely recommend.

I saw that Cristino's was highly rated on trip advisor and thought--Let's try it! I'm so glad we did. The food, service, and price were all great. My husband and I ordered a salad and a pepperoni pizza. The salad was made with healthy lettuce and came with a delicious dressing and it was inexpensive. It's nice to get a... More

I thought I liked pizza until I visited Italy and tasted the real thing! After that, nothing compared until we stumbled upon this place one evening before seeing a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall. The place was packed so we had to carry out. The crust, sauce, cheeses and meats are all authentic. The coal oven cooks it the way... More
