Christine’s Italian Restaurant- Atlantic Highlands, NJ
Chef Ron Marino is a great guy and really takes pride in his food and customers. While the food is good at Christine’s, the signature Italian dishes do leave a little to be desired. Coming from an Italian family myself, I’m not sure if the food is worth the price. Anyone can load up on the cheese and sauce and make it taste decent. We are missing a little of the finesse of Italian cooking such as elegance, simplicity on the basics, and flavorful ingredients, which makes me feel bad because they are the nicest people with excellent customer service.
