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!!!!

If you are in Knoxville you have to try Savelli's. This has got to be some of the best food we have eaten. Make sure you try either the Pizza or Brooklyn Style Calzone (Deep Fried). It's a fairly small restaurant but the food is...More

By far, the best eatery in Knoxville for "special" occasions. Quality food, phenomenal service, reasonable pricing, & fantastic atmosphere.
