We did a take out order for our first time at Christiano's and it was very good. We ordered pizza, manicotti and salad, all were great. I would say that was the best pizza we have had in the area. It also came with bread and a dipping oil. Next time we will dine in and try some new dishes.... More

My entire family - 26 of us - dine at Christiano's whenever Italian food is the choice for dinner. Between all of us we have tried everything on the menu with nothing but praise for each dish. Pizza, made from scratch is the best in the area. Veal Marsala like you would expect in south Philly. Only downside I have... More

My wife and I went for her birthday. It was just the right mix of romance and easy going. The server, Alex, was outstanding and the food was very delicious... we both left stuffed! We will be back!

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.

Great service! Great food! Went here for lunch and liked it so much came back later in the week for dinner. Great garlic knots for lunch! Their fettuccine Alfredo is awesome...sauce was nice and creamy and waitress even added more fresh grated parmesan at our table. Great ceasar salad too. Wish we had this restaurant in St. Louis!

Christiano's is Santa Rosa Beach's Best kept secret! The Italian cuisine is nothing short of a trip through Venezia. From his grandma's incredible marinara and meat balls to his rack of lamb, there is none better in the Florida Panhandle. The food is accompanied by outstanding servers like Robert! We will continue to patronize Christiano's with every visit to the... More

Cant say enough about the excellent service and quality of food . We ordered pizza, lasagna , seafood diablo(spicey) be aware. But all were great . THis place is surely overlooked because it is located at end of a strip mall and easily overlooked . But a whole different world awaits inside .
