We love going on our birthdays especially to this restaurant, to enjoy a free tasty meal with family and friends. The salad, garlic rolls and entrees are always tasty! Vegans can enjoy it too. We love their Penne Pasta Prima Vera for $12.50. Just ask for the salad with no cheese, and enjoy!

If you can get over the 1970's décor and the hit and miss customer service, you'll enjoy your evening at Provinos. The food, while served on bland white cafeteria style dishes is lacking in visual appeal but tastes very good. The bottomless salad bowl and rolls that are brought to your table will have you wanting more BUT caution both... More

Another birthday meal (actually on my bday)- my meal was free with proper ID. I ordered Lasagna Napolean and it was meaty and loaded with cheese. The salad was delicious (included tomatoes, mushrooms, beets, cheese and homemade Italian dressing), but the ROLLS.....swimming in a bowl of minced garlic and butter, and all you can eat.....I had to waddle out. It... More

One of my family's favorite places to eat in Chattanooga. A little pricey, but some of the best Italian food around. Garlic rolls are OUT OF THIS WORLD! Wish they took reservations or call-ahead, but it's worth the wait.

Always love going here! Especially when its your birthday, as you get a free entrée and ice cream! Knowing it usually gets crowded quick we go at least 30 minutes earlier than we plan to eat but usually get right in...they do take reservations for groups though. The service has always been good and the food is always excellent! Can't... More

Normally I come to Provino's with my family, so the experience is often colored by good company and entertainment. This time, however, I attended a dreadfully boring event here and was shocked at how completely average the experience was without proper distraction. The food, as always, was good. I had the Chicken Franchese, and it was very good (albeit a... More

My husband and I were unhappy with Provino's until the famous garlic rolls and salad were brought to our table. Before that we were made very uncomfortable by the two rude, disinterested hostesses as well as our completely bored waitress. Our entrees were large and jam-packed with cheese and ground beef and tasted decent. The Spumoni ice cream was delicious,... More

My daughter and boyfriend took us here... the ROLLS are Awesome, Salad was Great. I had the Red Snapper dish and it was amazing - Also tasted the Cannolini dish and that was Good too. We will be returning when we are in Chattanooga again.

Provino's, Chattanooga use to be a pleasant Italian restaurant, reasonable, good food, atmosphere. Is now similar to a Red Lobster . . . . . average food, crowded, hurry up and wait atmosphere. Seems to be existing based on out of date reputation.
