This is an overcrowded, very noisy place where you have to go. Make a reservation, expect to have to wait quite some time, order some food, a good bottle of wine, have a nice conversation (on a shouting level), look around and bring a big wallet. You will have a wonderful diner.

We visited on the recommendation of a friend, pasta is way overpriced, owner was too self absorbed to say hello as he was too busy with all the ladies at a table, sommelier was gracious and professional, we noticed no female servers, simply table captains that carried napkins on their forearm, after paying the check they stood by our table...

Went here with some business colleagues on a recommendation of another colleague. Big mistake. The decor is old and outlandish. What's worse, the food was horrible and ridiculously expensive. I have lived 3.5 years in Italy so I can appreciate good food even though it might be expensive. This was bad food at outlandish prices. The servers seem to be... More

The place is a complete nonsense, nonsense pretentious (trying to recreate a kind of Italian style, far from that), nonsense food (food was not good at all, nonsense Italian dishes, wrong pasta names, extra oiled...) and nonsense price (We paid like 100$ per person for this nonsense) I'm sorry for the service people, they were very nice and just tried...

We had a large party with repeat patrons. I was told Christini's was known for their veal so I got veal marsala. We had several courses before our main course and dessert after! The food was excellent, the service impeccable and the wine was flowing and may have gotten me in some trouble! If you're looking for a quiet, low... More

Let me first say that the food and service were very good, my entree however, could have been hotter. It was extremely crowded on a recent Friday night with many large tables crammed together. The noise level was very high and add to that the proverbial accordion player and... well you get the idea. Every time a staff member passed... More

Our global group enjoyed a beautiful meal in the opulently decorated private dining room. It's reputation precedes itself - it was absolutely packed on a Monday evening. Thoughtfully prepared menu offered wonderful selections. Resident sommelier Colin Burke had done an outstanding job of wine pairing with each course and we were treated to some limited quantity wines that showcased some... More

Christini's is normally one of, if not my favorite restaurant in Orlando. You can read my previous reviews. I've been going here for almost years -- during an annual conference I attend every January, and then numerous other times throughout the year when I meet with clients. I had dinner here two weeks ago and I was very disappointed. While... More

It's what they are known for, wish I had know ahead of time. Check the menu and bill very carefully, especially the wine charges. Instead of dropping a couple of hundred for two people, make a donation to a good charity and eat at a respectable restaurant, that won't rip you off.

The food was exceptional. For a group of 12, we ordered a number of dishes and ate family style. The veal saltinbocca and gnocchi bolognese was strongly recommended by our waiter Vinny and didn't disappoint. Neither did the eggplant parm and chicken parm. Service was exceptional. There was Vinny and two other servers constantly attending to our needs. Needless to... More
