CiaoCristina! “It’s Not Food, It’s Love”
Let’s face it; there’s nothing better than enjoying great food in an inviting atmosphere, and CiaoCristina! does just that. Offering flavorful dishes paired with fine wines, CiaoCristina! provides patrons with the chance to experience the magic of Northern Italian cuisine. Each dish is masterfully prepared from recipes perfected by executive chef Cristina Fontan-ella, passed on from her family growing up in Venice, Italy. Using traditional cooking methods and only the freshest ingredients, the rich aromas and flavor of each dish instantly transports diners to the heart of a beautiful Northern Italian city.
Adding to the feeling of having just stepped in from one of Italy’s famed stone-paved calles is the cozy-yet-rustic interior adorned with traditional Venetian décor. Whether dining solo or with the family, those looking for a full-course meal, drink or just dessert, CiaoCristina! fits everyone’s dining preference. In addition to the already outstanding menu is the extensive array of fine wines, selected by Cristina herself, and designer cocktails and 14 draught beers, hand-picked by owner and manager, Alan Donovan. These will compliment any menu item or can be enjoyed on their own!
Since opening its doors to serving the Burbank-Toluca Lake community and beyond, CiaoCristina! is sure to remain a staple in the community. As one of a few restaurants in the Los Angeles area offering excellent service and great food at a reasonable price; CiaoCristina! is also an environmentally-green establishment and a member of The Green Restaurant Association, offering diners eco-friendly take-home products and quality mineral water, sparkling or still (for more information on dining eco-friendly, visit www.dinegreen.com).
All menu items are available for dine-in or delivery to surrounding areas. Catering for any occasion is available on-site or off.
