    Food was fabulous! Table was in high traffic area and felt “in the way” Table service was great and waitress was very attentive. Would have preferred a “less busy” spot. Overall a good experience.

    Entry to the facility was very inviting. The staff quickly confirmed our reservation and proceeded to seat us. We had many that worked there check on us as we sat and drank / ate our appetizer and meal. Our server did an Excellent job with advising of the specials. He went above and beyond with the service of presenting our meal and ensured our drinks were topped off

    I am a regular at Cristiano’s. I have dined all over the world and even in Italy, Cristianos is one of the best, if not the best, Italian restaurants. I can’t recommend it high enough. Can’t believe we have this restaurant in South La. What a gem! Thanks Cristiano!

    I have always loved eating at Cristano’s knowing the price would be a little higher than an average restaurant. I have also loved the quality of the food but not yesterday. The $23 shrimp and avocado salad was bland. Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, half avocado and six shrimp with very little salad dressing didn’t seem worth it.

    Always a great venue for Date nights. This is the first time I had the Lasagna, it was really good! And the wife had the fish special which was a pan seared red grouper! It was excellent! And yes it’s date night, we had to grab some desert…. We did the cheese cake sampler for the win!

    RUN TO THIS RESTAURANT! Simple food tonight - house salad and stuffed chicken breast - no big deal, right? OMG! Salad was greens and amazing grape tomatoes splashed with a killer avocado vinaigrette. Main course was triple Brie stuffed chicken breast with a caramel reduction and oh so amazing almond risotto. Healthy portion size without crazy excess (good thing because I would have eaten every bite no matter what size- it was that good!)

    The food was great, maybe a bit pricey for what it is though. Only reason for an imperfect rating is the fact that our waitress knocked over one of the martini glasses on our table and drenched two of us. She left right away to get another drink made; however, we were still charged for the spilled drink. I’m totally understanding that it was an accident, and she was super sweet in apologizing and helping clean up. But, th

    We were out for an evening celebrating my nephews last day of Pharmacy rotation at TGMC. He lived with us here in Houma for five weeks and I promised to bring him here before he left. The experience was wonderful for him as he got to try fried green tomatoes for the first time and fried duck strips for the first time. He had the pasta special what she said was amazing. I had the petite filet mignon with the risotto special of the evening, my steak was point on but the risotto was the worst I have ever eaten at Cristianos. Usually, they have the best risotto I have ever eaten but tonight it was nothing but mushy rice. My husband had the fish special of the night and throughly enjoyed his as well. We finished our meal off with the crème brûlée and chocolate cake and Cristianos famous tiramisu (also the first time my nephew has ever eaten these dishes). Happy to say, the desserts were also spot on.

    We go to this restaurant for special occasions and every once in a while just to enjoy their menu. Last night was one of those nights. Their appetizers are the best in Houma and the service is also very good. The Tuesday special included my favorite: Osso Bucco. They also handled our 50th wedding anniversary outside on the patio with about 50 patrons. Thank you Cristiano.
