Along the pinellas trail, a block away is a fine italian food stop. We had pasta and a salad and both were excellent. The waitress was friendly and helpful, the prices reasonable. This is the place to replenish the carbs.

Ok, I'm a food snob. Lived in Italy for 6 years so I know the food. Coal oven? Wood fire ovens I'm familiar with but this was the first Coal oven pizza ive tried.This must be popular in Pennsylvania i'm guessing The pizza was average and the wine of poor quality. Atmosphere was dismal; bare table tops with pizzeria ambiance... More

I have tried their Pizza as well as their other Italian offerings and everything is fantastic. It's a quaint little place with outside seating as well. Plenty of parking and the price is right.

We had the fresh mozzarella coal fired pizza. We were in heaven! We never had the perfect pizza until we tried Cristino's. WE also had their eggplant parm dinner and seafood pasta. All were amazing. We will be back when we are in Clearwater again.

Been there for lunch. Have shared a terrific pizza. On other occasions, my favorite is an eggplant parm sandwich on focasio bread. Love the tastes of gellato freely given at the end of your meal. Get there early, because they fill right up.

I was with my daughter for a quick deliscious pit stop during a holiday shopping trip. Pizza is a real treat because of the great crust and the coal fire. Service is fast and very pleasant perfect for a quick trip.
