Christini’s Ristorante Italiano

It’s become a yearly tradition, when Melissa comes home to visit, to treat ourselves to a great dining experience.

Christini’s Ristorante Italiano was one I don’t think we’ll ever forget. The service from Chris And Alex was professional, but at the same time personal. These two gentlemen treated us as if we were the only table in the restaurant and nothing around us even existed or mattered. The time Chris took to enlighten us on the different menu options, wine and cocktail selection were done with impeccable knowledge.

The food was insanely delicious from start to finish.

Below is a peek into our culinary adventure. For more information on Christini’s visit  http://www.christinis.com located at 7600 Dr. Phillips Blvd, Orlando, FL. 32819.
