What a great find. Stopped over in Knoxville for the night. Called in an order and picked it up. What a great surprise we had as we enjoyed this delicious food in the comfort of our room.

Altruda's is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The homemade garlic bread is to die for! The Lasagna is out of this world good!

Great authentic Italian food in a cozy atmosphere. Excellent service everytime. We usually eat here at least 6-7 times a year and I have never disapointed. Next time your on your way to Olive Garden...pass it up and go where they actually cook the best Italian food around.

We absolutely love this restaurant! We like to start with the tortollini appetizer. The salad and rolls are outstanding. For enteees the spaghetti la grande, veal limone and red snapper Parmesan are worth considering. Try to save room for dessert if you can. Highly recommend 👍

I love to visit locally owned restaurants and this one was exceptional. We had a party of 12 to celebrate an engagement. The waiter was excellent and service was on point. The homemade sauces were wonderful and choices were endless. You can tell they take pride in their food and drinks. Loved how the layout was and it had quaint... More

We have been in Knoxville 11 years and somehow have never eaten here. I would suggest getting there when they open at 5, or you may be waiting awhile. The atmosphere is romantic with close booths and small lamps. The entrées include garlic rolls and a large bowl of salad. The food and service is outstanding. Our waitress was always... More

Solid American-Italian foods. Fresh preparations with expected flavors, not over cooked. Staff/management id not complain that we dined 'like europeans' for over 3 hours.

Altruda's is not just the best Italian restaurant in Knoxville--it's the best restaurant in Knoxville, period, and it has been for decades. The salad and rolls alone can make a meal, but I never can resist one of the shrimp dishes. I don't understand people who go to a chain like Olive Garden and pay the same amount of money... More
