Absolutely delicious food. The service is terrific and the atmosphere is lovely. Because he doesn't own the building, the outside does not reflect the beautiful interior at all. The pizza is fabulous. You pay a little more but you really get your money's worth.

Been driving by this place for years decided to try it. Very good food. Nothing fancy or nouveau - just good Italian food. We got an order of eggplant parm and chicken parm. It was the Wed night special - 2 dinners for $25, we got salad, bread, parm and side of pasta. The tomato sauce was really good, very... More

We stopped for pizza. It was great pizza and the Italian food served looked great. I wish we had more time. Service was very slow and it took an hour to get our food. Even after I told the waitress we were in a hurry, it took time to get everything we needed to get going. I'd go back, but... More

We have visited on several occasions. Our most recent visit was a cold and rainy early spring night. We went to Christina's just before closing time. We were welcomed and sat by the fire. We had great food. Although I like a lighter meal I ordered a the pasta carbonara it was great. I live close by and often just... More

We've been here several times in the last few years and cannot seem to get past the baked stuffed scallops. By far, the best I've had anywhere and they are consistent in being so. Many other items on the menu which I'm sure are great too. The staff is wonderful and they have done a great job on the interior.... More

Four of us ate here on a Saturday night with raves all around. We started with a meatball appetizer, fresh-baked bread and salads, followed by Chicken Saltimbocca, Chicken Parmigiana, Pasta with Bolognese Sauce and Shrimp Alfredo. Ingredients were fresh and expertly prepared, with portions big enough to take home for a second meal. Nice wine list, too. The tiramisu was... More

First a history: Christina's used to be the Starlight Diner. Then it was the Smokin' Hippo. Both were good eats in a convenient location. After the Hippo closed Christina's showed up. I dropped in and had lunch and conversation with the ownership. They were incredibly self-important and convinced they had a monopoly on 'real' Italian food. Claiming to be using... More

Christina's was recommended to us by friends and when my husband and I arrived at the restaurant, we weren't quite sure whether it was the type of resturant we were looking for. The outside of Christina's is quite deceiving, I realized after having dinner here that I should not judge a book by its cover, the food was exceptionally delicious.... More
