4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Very nice staff & good food. Duck appetizer was good, as we're to calamari. Chicken parm was just ok.

“What a nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I had the chargrilled oysters with a glass of prosecco, followed by the "Pollo", which is a sort of pan-crisp chicken breast stuffed with cheese with a sort of pecan-meunière sauce on top....really hard to describe the combination of favors but the dish was stunning with a nice crisp Chardonnay.

Ended the meal with an Irish coffee and some animated conversation with some other patrons in the lounge area ( I was dining alone and so made myself at home in the bar for dinner)' and left very happy....it was one of those meals that just leave you satisfied on so many levels.

I wish I had the chance to go back there before I leave Houma but it doesn't seem likely, so I will just say if you find yourself in this little Louisiana town, do yourself a favor and visit this little jewel for an interesting menu, excellent food, and fine service all at a reasonable price. If you are like me, after so many blah blah meals out it may even re-ignite your passion for fine food.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

It is always a culinary delight to dine at Cristiano's in Houma. The menu always have fresh new items that delight. We often stop in for dinner on our way to our camp and it is always a treat. It is fun to introduce Cristiano's to friends and see their reaction to what we have been bragging about and have them agree that it is every bit as good as we said.

“First Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The food, service and ambiance in this Italian restuarant is first class all the way. It is kind of expensive, but well worth the cost for a great dining experience.
