Looked somewhere for dinner in Gatlinburg and this place stood out for looking particularly cosy with dark booths and stain glass lampshades. It was busy but not overrun. Also, it wasn't a chain restaurant, which appealed to us. The waitresses were all really sweet, and...More

I was so excited to try this place. I have been begging my husband for years to come here. I love Italian and he can take it or leave it. So we walked in and it took several minutes for anyone to even acknowledge us....More

Friendly service and good food. Big as your face calzone. Very good too. Nice size dinner portions that includes a salad and garlic knots. Knots have lots of garlic, butter and parmesan cheese.

We were recommended to this Eatery by local who loved the food and especially the Garlic Bread knots. Our salads and main course were tasty, plentiful and delicious. The Garlic Knots were as advertised! The restaurant was busy but we received our meals straightaway.

They were VERY short handed. The older ladies were rude. The younger waiters/waitresses were trying their best to host, get drinks and serve food. In addition, clean up tables. The food is usually great here. Mine was not. Chicken parm was cold and like leather.
