    The restaurant is expensive. But, I think it is too much to charge 9dollars for one single coca-cola. Come on, it costs 1.25$ at Publix and you charge 9 + service ? So I paid 12 dollar per coke? It is unbelievable and an unfair procedure with the guests. I will not go back!!!

    They did not have a table available at our reservation time for a 69th birthday. They stuck our party of 6 into the banquet room. They had a party of 35 in that room as well where they were loud, vulgar and underdressed according to their dress code. We were devastated…we contacted the owner and they said sorry but too bad! NEVER WILL RETURN

    Food was good not worth the money. Service was very attentive, but felt very rushed. We couldn’t talk without some asking if we were ready for the next course. Felt like they were trying to turn tables quickly with plenty of tables available. For the amount of money we spent on dinner, we didn’t get a chance to sit down and enjoy eating and have a conversation. Time between when we ordered our dinner and receiving dinner was about 5 mins.

    Always a gem of a restaurant and one of our favorite place to dine in Orlando. It's a classic old school Italian vibe, great ambiance, excellent food and wine, and phenomenal service. We always go this time of year during the IAAPA trade show in Orlando. The only sad thing was that Mr. Chris "Christini" just recently passed away so we missed seeing him. Rest in peace Chris.

    Christini’s is an experience. If you love Italian and Mediterranean food made from the best ingredients and want a classic New York ambiance complete with an accordion player and roses for the ladies, this is a must visit when in Orlando. I am in town a couple of times a year on business and I always try to add it to my itinerary. The restaurant is known for its veal and it does not disappoint. Amazing dishes and a great wine list but it is not an inexpensive visit. For this level of quality, you must pay for it.

    Another outstanding dinner! The service and food at this well appointed, classic, Italian restaurant are impeccable. From the bread to the dessert, the service was friendly and accommodating to the needs of our group of 7. The wait staff remembered our names and treated us like family. Appetizers and entrees are consistently excellent. The wine list was somewhat limited and overpriced, which was the only negative to an otherwise spectacular dining experience.

    My drink, the Bolle, tasted like chewing tobacco. Husband said he enjoyed his old fashioned. Husbands veal chop was good but my seafood pasta was inedible. I’ve never paid so much money not to eat my food or even enjoy my beverage. Service was slow and the waiter seemed very arrogant, so I did not feel comfortable expressing how dissatisfied I was.
