Christini was born in Sparta, Greece, to Italian and Greek parents. He took a job in a bakery that led to him opening restaurants across the world in cities such as New York City and Montreal. In 1982, he came to Florida to open L’Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante at Epcot’s Italy Pavilion. Two years later, he left the restaurant and decided to take a gamble by opening his own fine dining restaurant in Orlando - Christini’s Ristorante Italiano.
