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 Seems to be existing based on out of date reputation.

This place was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint! The location was a little out of the way for us (we were staying downtown) but was worth the time. The atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and the food was wonderful. I highly recommend!

My family was vacationing in the area. We like to eat at locally owned restaurants when we travel. The atmosphere and service was very nice, but the food was bland with no flavor. Husband had the meatballs, there was no spice or flavor in the meat or sauce. Daughter had a seafood dish, also very bland. I had the lasagna,... More

You can't beat Provino's. We've been coming here for over 20 years. Endless delicious rolls and salad. Every entree is wonderful. You will smell like garlic when you leave but it's worth it!

I had never been to this restaurant before as Italian food is NOT one of my favorites. All those "carbs" just make me sleepy. My sister in law and brother just wanted me to try this place...So we went on our way back from the Mountains. A very pleasant experience. Like being in Italy. Great cozy atmosphere.
