I was thinking it would be great because it was packed. However, my chicken parmesan was over 18 dollars and did not taste right. The noodles had a strange aftertaste so I"m not sure what they were made of and the sauce was watery. The...More

The food was good, however the curt service was disrespectful. One person in our party did not receive what he ordered. He asked twice about his order, and didn't get a qualified answer. Very disappointed!!!

This place is such a hidden gem in Knoxville. Just on the outskirts of downtown. It's a family owned and operated Italian restaurant. This is truly some of the best food I've ever had. Everything is made fresh and in house. This establishment is, however,...More

Great lunch and cozy atmosphere. Split the calzone with my dad - it's large enough for 3 people to share. 😊

I used GrubHub to order from this restaurant. Food wasn't visually appealing at all (I got the shrimp & crab linguine.) Lots of pasta....very little meat :-( Small cup of tea (definitely not worth $2.50). Total meal not worth the $30 I paid for it!!!!

I'm merely guessing as to the birthdate of this establishment, as I have gone there for years, and it has not changed in the slightest. It is ingenious of them to not bother getting a liquor license and merely charge guests a "corking" charge for...More

Savelli's has been one of our favorites for several years. The food is always good with large portions. It is a small place and reservations are a good idea. It is BYOB and they do charge a corkage fee but the food is excellent. I...More

No. You can bring your own or your own wine. There is a $3.00 per person charge for the beer and a corking fee of $3.00 per person as well.
