Gatlinburg is filled with many chains; it is nice to find a truly local establishment. We sat outside, near the creek, much more pleasant than indoors, especially when it is crowded. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and there was much conversation among tables. Arriving early, we were in time for early bird drink prices. At the end of our... More

Poor food, poor service. Chicken Marsala very poor. Side of spaghetti served with no sauce. Had to ask for garlic rolls, drink refills. Server was just rude. Argued with us when she brought the wrong dish. Rolled her eyes when we asked for separate checks. Will not return.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, but will not be our last. The food was SO good! First we had the fried cheese ravioli for appetizer. They were crispy on the outside, and full of cheese on the inside. The marinara was wonderful with it. My husband had the Calzone, which took up over half the plate. It... More

I've been here many times over the last 10 years. The food is great. I was in town this weekend and committed to patronizing local restaurants after the fires. I planned to order a salad then caved to my love of meatballs. My friend ordered the alfredo with chicken and broccoli and I ordered spaghetti with meatballs. Both come with... More

All of us had a variety of Italian food and all of it was delicious. My husband had the lasagna and extra meat balls, delicious. I had there pizza and our friends had shrimp alfresco and of course the best garlic knots in town. We would return, all was delicious!

Our dinner here was excellent and our server was wonderful too. My wife and I shared a huge calzone and weren't able to finish it - it was definitely enough for four people. The garlic knots were awesome, as large as biscuits and covered in garlic, butter, and various cheeses.

We visited Gatlinburg in the month of July. Needless to say, it was very hot. We were looking forward to trying this restaurant because we had heard it was very good. When we arrived, the staff appeared to be "rattled", not really rude, but not friendly at all. It was very hot and we were told the air conditioner was... More

This restaurant hit the spot after a day of hiking. Our sever was friendly and attentive. The garlic knots were so filling that none of us could finish our dinners.
