Restaurateur Chris 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 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.
Over two decades later, Christini still oversees every aspect of the operation. His experience and extraordinary attention to detail have earned him significant recognition in the restaurant business and have made Christini’s Ristorante Italiano the most awarded restaurant in Central Florida, drawing celebrities and dignitaries from all over the world.
