There's a lot to pick from on the menu. I never know exactly what I'll get when I go because there is so much to pick from. DiCristina's has a lively atmosphere and the place is always hopping and busy when I go. It seems a lot of repeat customers visit and that the servers often know the customers. I... More

Excellent Sicilian dinners and Louisiana seafood. With roots in St. Bernard parish and Sicily this restaurant is a beloved gathering place for many of the families displaced by Katrina. Ms Josie and Ms.Marie are frequently going table to table to converse with diners, especially on weekends. If you speak some Italian, the visit may linger much longer. The whole family... More

Try the crab claw appetizer. It's wonderful. Don't forget to check out the bottled wines. Some amazing deals here.

This meal was the best I had all week here this trip! Started with a fabulous Crab & Brie soup, excellent Italian salad, and an entree of EGGPLANT DREW. Everything was delicious and I felt terrible leaving over half my entree because it was enough for two. I told them I would definitely be back...but with a friend to share... More

I enjoyed Di Cristina's food and service. The ambiance is non-existent. Their fried chicken is excellent but you have to order it when you are seated as it takes 20-30 minutes to get it because it is cooked when you order it. NO HEAT LAMPS!!

Had the stuffed bell pepper. It was just like the ones my grandma used to make, so delicious, loaded with meat. Very generous portions, outstanding service. Can't wait to go back for more comfort food!

This little restaurant is always the best. I have been eating here since they moved to the Northshore not long after Hurricane Katrina devastated St. Bernard Parish. In the many times that I have dined at Di Cristina I have never had anything disappointing. The many Italian selections, as well as, the seafood dishes offered on their menu are always... More

This was our first time to DiCristina's and we found ourselves discussing - "Why have we not been here until now?" The food, the atmosphere, the hospitality were all true to N'awlins culture. Plenty of choices on the menu, the food was good and the portions were nice. Barb was our server, and she did an EXCELLENT job! Our party... More

Stopped in for lunch. Food was good but not great, and it was barely warm which didn't help much. Waitress was attentive and pleasant.
