I love local businesses, especially restaurants. These folks have it down. Their pizza is fresh and amazing. We love to get their big bowl of steamed veggies and a pizza and have an evening of it. The staff are great!

Toppings were cheap. Cheese was bland. There was an over-use of oils. Waitress didn't know the menu and was slightly rude. Most of the menu is a copy of items from a particular nationwide pre-prepared and semi-pre-prepared food sales and distribution company. I suspect that...Cristo's isn't being run by "pizza people" with a deep-seated appreciation for pizza. This was probably just an investment by somebody. There's no passion here. The kitchen is going through the motions.More

When booking online the restaurant requires you to choose a time for pick up, this is rarely accurate and AFTER you pay often 30–60 minutes will be added. If you call to try and figure out when to actually come get your food, good luck...getting someone to help you as they will inevitably say they are too busy to help. This has happened to us several times. Their average food is not worth the trouble any more. Many better choices nearby.More

We love Cristo’s and have been eating there for years. It’s a casual Italian restaurant good for birthdays or just a night out - friendly servers, nice ambiance, and great food. Their pastas are excellent, their pasta fagioli soup is so flavorful, and their NY-style...pizzas and Stromboli are on point. The highlight for us is the Grandma's pizza, though - absolutely delicious with strong garlic flavors. Highly, highly recommend Cristo’s!!More

Had never been there since the place opened as Cristos. Loved the former Andy' s pizza that was there for many years. Cristo' s is good and will go back. Got take out first dinner.

We had a small party catered. The food was very good, and was ready on time. It was way... more than was needed! Haven't had the opportunity to personally visit to dine in yet.

I've eaten here a few times and I probably won't go back. Sometimes you get great service sometimes it sucks. I'm pretty sure the few negative encounters I did have here were with the owners/management but it's enough for me to walk away and find...something else. Isn't capitalism great : PMore

A friend in Florida recommended this restaurant so we thought we'd try it. I have to say that my pasta dish was absolutely delicious. It was pleasing to the eye and tasted even better than it looked. I plan to go again so I can...try the pizza!More

This restaurant in a strip shopping center is a pretty nice restaurant with an above average interior. Ordered a personal size Margherita Pizza and it was very good. At first I thought it was too large to eat but it was fine due to the...very thin crust. Service was attentive and very friendly. They offer a wide variety of Italian food and some of their specialties can be pretty pricey. All in all a good experience with good food and friendly serviceMore

Great find. Tucked away in a outdoor shopping center. Ordered a x-large pepperoni for takeout when we found out our local Jet's Pizza had closed. Look forward to having more pizza and trying their other dishes.

Due to an issue with their operating system I was initially turned away for dinner. Just felt the host was a bit abrupt and could have explained the situation better. You’re not expecting to be refused service with a restaurant full of people. My husband...was meeting me there so I got back in my car to call him. Minutes later a family walked in and were seated for service. The owner explained they were having trouble but figured a way to make the system work. Just seems they could have asked me to wait a few minutes to see if a solution was found. We live 30 minutes away. Owner and host were not welcoming or friendly. We enjoyed our pizza but not sure we will eat here again anytime soon.More

My husband and I found this place while visiting Raleigh for a weekend away. We had lunch there and it was fantastic. We had the fried ravioli appetizer and it was good but the marinara it was served with was better. My husband has the...chicken parmigiana sub and it was stuffed with chicken and he loved it. I had the Cristo’s panini and it was fresh and delicious. Our waiter was nice, quick and efficient. The place was clean, quiet and really nice for lunch or dinner. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had and the portions are huge. We will be back next time we are in Raleigh.More
