Cristo's serves authentic Italian dishes at reasonable prices. The people who own/run it are Italian-Americans originally from Staten Island NY and believe this Jersey boy, if they don't know how to serve tasty Italian food nobody does! Also nice relaxing atmosphere and always friendly/helpful wait staff.

Pulled into the parking lot to eat at Tijuana Flats -/strip mall/ parking lot was packed-Tijuana was very empty -walked down-cars were parked there for Cristo's-this place was packed. Had a white pizza and salads. Salads would have been enough. Pizza was delicious, crust perfect! So stuffed we brought some home. Glad we stumbled upon this place. We'll be back👍

We found this place because of the great reviews searching on google. The restaurant isn't big but very clean and quiet atmosphere. Our waitress was good and helpful too. The food was great and hot. This place has made my list for pizza in Raleigh.

Good Italian food, friendly service, fair prices, good location. Try the chicken piccata, spaghetti, spinach salad, and bread.

We decided to try a NY style pizza for the first time and were not impressed. We like thin and crispy, but the crust was hard and crunchy and had a burnt flavor. The spinach and tomatoes on the pizza did not seem fresh and the flavor overall was just lacking something. The restaurant was nearly empty and our waitress... More

A friend suggested this place to me for NY style pizza... it is definitely solid. They have great (huge) rice balls which I absolutely love. I have ordered take out from here multiple times and it is always gobbled up by everyone. I would say the XL feeds 4 adults. Prices are very reasonable. I recently met a friend here... More

We stopped here on a quiet Sunday evening. The four of us split an extra large half veggie pesto and half veggie feta cheese pizza. That gave us each two large pieces, more than enough. The pizza was excellent. Along with that we had a very good draft lager. The bill before tip was about $15 for each couple. Service... More

We were on a hunt for a little Italian place that wasn't a chain restaurant, and stumbled across this very cute little place. Prices were totally reasonable, and the atmosphere is cozy and laid back. Great place for a glass of wine and NY style pizza. The cannoli was delicious and homemade, reminded my husband of his Italian grandmother. We'll... More
