My absolute favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Since moving here from Brooklyn, NY several years ago, I can say the food is always delicious and the service is super friendly. Cristo's has a quaint little neighborhood feel. My family and I come here a few times a month. The owner is very hands on and is always helping out at the front of the house. They also have a very busy take out business.
Food was delicious. Drinks were on par. I guess it was a new server because our friends highly recommend this place, but service was just... bad. I could note several reasons but won't go in length. I'll give it another try for dine-in because the food really was great. I got stuffed chicken marsala and hubby got fettuccine alfredo (+ chicken, which was clearly requested at time of order, but brought out later after pointing out the miss). Overall 4 stars- with our company to laugh with included in that!
Delicious! Best Italian food in the area. We will definitely be back.
Casual dining environment (paper napkins, the type of music), but the food is the best food I’ve tasted in years, even at upscale fine restaurants. They cook to order, and I think must make everything from scratch. I had their minestrone soup and every vegetable in it tasted fresh, and had been perfectly cooked. My wife loved their special that day, a pumpkin sauce pasta dish, even after she had substituted gluten-free pasta. No gluten-free bread though.
Absolutely the best pizza in town! Their sicilian pie is amazing and without a doubt the best in the Raleigh area. If you want real New York tasting and looking pizza come here. Don't go to the place down the road who claims they are "Manhattan Pizza".
