Had a killer marguerite pizza - delicious thin crisp crust. Gelato to follow even though we were stuffed! We lucked into this place and glad we did – can’t wait to visit next year when we are back in the Clearwater area. Nice service too.

In town for a fire department conference. I had eaten here 2 years ago and remember it being good. So we wanted pizza and Cristino’s didn’t disappoint. The pizza was excellent and our server was excellent. I wish I could remember her name.

This is a cute, eclectic little place. We were seated right away, but they’re clearly understaffed. I’m not sure how many tables our waiter had, but he was spread way too thin. I ordered the caprese salad and it was literally the worst I’ve ever...More
