    My husband celebrated our anniversary in July and it was AMAZING. So when my birthday came around of course I wanted to return. We began the evening with drinks in the bar. The Old Fashions were delicious and the atmosphere intimate and most enjoyable. Our dinner on the other hand was sub par. The waitress had to read the specials as she obviously had not memorized them. She spent more time visiting with her sister who was dining than paying attention to us. She knew nothing about the wine list and had to get someone else to help us. We ordered and she brought our salad out in a timely manner. We both had the Caesar which was excellent. We then waited 55 minutes before our food arrived. My husband’s spaghetti was barely warm and was bland without layers of flavor. They did bring back a hot plate of spaghetti, but the flavor was the same. I ordered the Lamb chops which were very good. They tried to make it right by giving us a dessert, but the overall experience and food just was not what it had been the last time we were there.

    Great Italian food. Good wine list, but needs sommelier assistance as lacks years and tasting notes. Lovely setting - both indoors and outdoors. Would definitely come back.

    Another fantastic meal. Started with Bruschetta Calda with their house made burrata mozzarella. Fantastic flavor and so fresh. Followed up with the piccolo filetto, which is a chargrilled 5oz petite filet topped with butter poached crabmeat, Brie risotto, and grilled zucchini. One of my favorite entrees and the quality is exceptional every time I've ordered this entree. Add the exceptional and attentive service of all of the staff and that's why I keep coming back week after week.

    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!
