It's not anything fancy -- a dozen or so tables done up casually, with food display cases anchoring the room. Service is friendly and unfussy; the wine list a handful of unspecified vinos, a few familiar beers. The big coal oven is unobtrusive, but it's the source of exactly half of the excitement here. The good stuff comes in the form of four basic pizza pies: margherita, marinara, bianca and quattro formaggi. Keep 'em simple and you're in for a delicious, thin-crust pizza. The other half of the excitement at Cristino's? The house gelatoes are spectacular.
