We enjoyed our meal at Christiano's, but have to say the food was pretty good, but not outstanding. I've had lots of great Italian food over the years and this is probably above average. Our group ordered lasagna, spaghetti, ravioli. Portions were very generous. That...More

The best Italian meal I've ever had. We always order our meals so we can share. The shrimp Tuscana & rack of lamb were outstanding. Our server was awesome & knowledgeable. We will definitely be back. The ambiance was romantic and quiet. A hidden gem.

Christianos is an authentic Italian restaurant with terrific food. A real unexpected treat at the beach. It's a really nice break from the fried fish world.
