We love this place! The pizza is amazing. The only downfall if you have to order extra cheese or you won't have much on the pizza. They offer high quality ingredients, reasonable prices for the type of pizza and it's always delicious. The only thing I wish they'd do is get garlic knots or cheese bread on the menu. That... More

Went here with friends. Great selection of items on menu. Well worth the trip to eat here. Very pleasant atmosphere outside with the patio lights. Fair number of parking spaces available.

Tiny place in downtown Clearwater with a great outdoor patio. Very authentic Italian dishes, not just pizza. The Mediterranean Ravioli was wonderful, light, and very flavorful. The service was very attentive and even provided samples of the fabulous Gelato. I was back in Tuscany for lunch!

Returned. DH had pizza which was excellent. Friend had chicken piccata which she said was excellent. I had eggplant park which was delicious. I was scouting for a friend arriving soon who had celiac disease. Note for those with celiacs: the gluten free pizza is actually low gluten, i.e. the crust is gluten free but it is baked with other... More

We have eaten at Christino's offer. The gelato is so creamy. The service is wonderful. My daughter and I enjoy the pesto pasta, the pizzas, and the risotto and veggies.
