Every time we go to Christiano's it's a special occasion. Even if it's just for lunch. Great menu with classic and specialty Italian dishes. An excellent wine menu. The ambiance of the old building or the courtyard for after work cock tails. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner with your significant other.

I did take out, so I'm not sure how great the table service is but, judging from the service I got and from what I could see as I was standing around, it's more than competent. The food, itself, is excellent and I would most certainly go back. It was surprisingly good, actually.

Ultimate in dining. You will love it. Brunch is great and fun! You can sit outside weather permitting. Service is great with a family or solo. Its an old home that has been renovated to accommodate the restaurant.

I didn't expect food of this caliber in Houma. It's sophisticated, influenced by a global perspective yet the house uses local and specific to the region ingredients. It's also very tasty. I have a lot of respect for what they've done here. Our servers were top notch as well.

Cristiano's eclectic style of New Orleans cuisine is a culinary bridge between two "boots," Louisiana and Italy...this is proclaimed in the restaurant's website and is absolutely accurate. Cristiano Raffignone is a native Italian who has made Louisiana his home. His love of both Italy and Louisiana is evident. Along with his local partner, Kelly Barker, a real gem is hidden... More

Cristiano's specializes in northern Italian cuisine. They are known for their chargrilled oysters so we ordered them as an appetizer, and they were wonderful! They have a short seasonal menu of creative dishes, and I might have chosen the duck, but we were in a steak mood, so we ordered the filet mignon from the regular part of the menu.... More
