I have been visiting Christo's for years. It is the best Greek food this side of Athins. His Home made wine is excellent. But make sure you have some time. This is not a fast food joint. Great food can't be rushed. You will find it is worth the wait.

We always enjoy our meal at Christo's. The service is usually comically slow, but we just make sure to allow enough time, and we keep going back. Have eaten here both for lunch during work day as well as dinner.

AMAZING food, wonderful atmosphere, and incredibly hospitable owner. I enjoyed the Jackie O cake and Jackie O coffee so much. We were a medium-sized group, and we enjoyed a wide variety of offerings at Christos. We samples the hummus and pita, lamb, salmon, gyros, saganaki, spinokopita, tabbouleh, dolmas, and the most lovely lemon potatoes. The food was only bested by the stories and pictures displayed throughout the restaurant. I liked the place and food so much that I went back again later in the week. This is a must-visit when visiting Pittsburgh.

Our ambassador Greek waiter was 80 yrs old and the chef for three years aboard, Christina, Aristotle Onassis yacht, when he was married to Jackie Kennedy. Authentic Greek food and homemade wine from his Papa's recipe who is 104 still living on Mykonos. Lamb shank in Tomato sauce with either orzo pasta or rice and seasoned green beans. Served with an awesome Greek salad; we both added anchovies with the suggested side of lemon potatoes. Signature dessert is Jackie Onassis cake which was light, delicious and a great pairing with Onassis coffee.

I should say we were little late. As usual we ordered different meals and shared. By my opinion, the cook knew what he (she) is doing and everything was vary tasty, but cold. Seems like most of the food was cooked together for the dinner and just got cold for us, the late ones. This is not necessarily bad, just they need to find the way to keep the food warm. The only thing they made after we ordered was an appetizer and it came last, long after the main courses. Again, all the food looked to be cooked, not assembled. Onassis dessert is very good and the guy said proudly he cooked it for Jackie O for 3 years. Good for him, her and us.
