I ate here on two nights. One night I had delicious pasta and the next I had a thin and crispy pizza. Both accompanied by a glass of red wine and both excellent and good value.

My daughter and I stopped here for an early dinner on the way to a concert. We were given a bench table in the front window which my daughter enjoyed. Service was attentive and meals came out promptly. We ordered a bruschetta, Caesar salad and bread and dip to share which was more than enough. Meals were fresh with lots... More

I first came here 18 months ago and wrote a goodish review. This time around we had some issues. Of the three pasta dishes the Marinara was very good, the Spaghetti Gamberi was ok, the lasgane was frankly a disgrace. It was so overcooked they supplied a spoon to eat it with. Perhaps soup pasta is a local delicacy. There... More

This was a great find! The food is all homemade and absolutely delicious. The portions are big and the salads to compliment the main courses are big enough to share. We went 3 times whilst we were staying in Paddington and had the mousakka, lasagne and meatballs all of which were delicious. The Restaurant also specialises in Pitzas and there... More

Hungover dinner. Hit all of the spots. Lovely service with attentive and friendly staff. Window side seating for good people watching. Fantastic spaghetti bolognese and penne primavera with ample sauce, good portion size and speedy delivery. Pink lemonade is actually raspberry fizzy drink. What a win. Highly recommended

This place has been around for a while now, keeping many locals like us happy for years. The early in the week specials are super value, and it's still good value at other times. Friendly staff, quick service, perfect for young families having an early dinner or those looking to settle in for a cocktail or two afterwards.

Lovely little pizza place with some great specials early in the week. Nice menu, doesn't pretend to be anything other then a comfortable local, affordable, family friendly and nice pizza's. Licensed or b.y.o. We've also had home delivery which wasn't nearly as good.

I migrated to Christo's after Arthur's up the road jacked up prices by 20%. I must admit I now feel a bit stupid for not having been going to Christo's all these other years, as the pizzas are actually much better and more generous than Arthur's. Their specials on Monday-Wednesday are excellent, as is their service, and it's a pleasant... More

Ok, I know that's a big claim, but I've been coming here for about 25 years, from back in the day when it was just a single shop unit with Peter, the owner, and his missus selling mostly takeaways with just a few seats at the back, with the occasional help from Christo himself, Peter's dad. Always a good feed,... More

After travelling around Oz for the last 2 months we have at long last found somewhere that can serve up really good authentic Italian pizza. Beautifully thin crust with good fresh ingredients all made to order....you can sit in or take away, the large pizza is enough for 2. Side salads are also freshly made. Not expensive and really enjoyed... More

Comfortable and friendly, Christo's Pizzeria is as much a Five Ways Paddington institution as The Royal Hotel across their much-encircled mutual roundabout.Any night of the week it's crowded, yet there always seems to be a spare table for stray diners looking for a gourmet pizza fix.Owner Peter Poulos is always on the floor making sure diners get that extra quality moment of attention, the music is always good - and then of course there's the food.
