***** Cristino’s Coal Oven Pizza, 1101 South Fort Harrison Avenue, Clearwater, Florida 33756, (727) 443-4900.
Got an absolutely terrific coal-oven pizza joint for you, Cristino’s Coal Oven Pizza in Clearwater. Just so you know, Cristino’s has a second location in Tampa–the one under “discussion” is in Clearwater.
First things first, Jeff Eats loved Cristino’s…real casual with both indoor/covered outside patio seating…reasonable prices, super pleasant service.
In addition to the “expected” coal-fired pizzas/wings and salads-the joint has the full boat of- Southern Italian appetizers, pastas, paninis, entrees, desserts.
You can check Cristino’s menu/prices at cristinospizzeria.com.
A recent dinner had Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple- “doing” eggplant rollatini ($7.99), caprese salad ($6.99), chicken parmigiana Panini ($8.50), 16″ margherita pizza ($12.99), lasagna/meat sauce ($10.99), coal oven wings (10-$7.99), lemon Italian ice (small-$3.79) and I gotta tell you, I didn’t hear even one- itsy bitzy teenie weenie complaint during the meal. Trust me with this one, everything was dynamite.
