Possibly the best Italian food this side of the Atlantic!

We just tried this small local restaurant located east of Chatanooga, TN based on earlier reviews and it was well worth the short detour to downtown Cleveland.

10/10 would eat again. Great food left me feeling satisfied but not overly full! Penne Bolognese was very good and the atmosphere was comfortable

We have eaten here several times in the past. Always good service and good food. Just a nice place for a dinner away from kids or whatever. The room is a little noisy due to the 100 year old brick walls, but it is a nice setting. Always a regular for the locals for a Saturday nite out.

In a world of chain restaurants, this unique setting has loads of character with the brick walls and tall ceiling in a historic building. I'd go just for the atmosphere, and perhaps a drink at the bar. For the food, it was just OK. No one could eat the over salted fingerlng potatoes, but the entrees otherwise were not left... More

We did not have a reservation but they smiled and worked us in on a Saturday evening. It was a very pretty, romantic Cafe and the staff was friendly and very helpful. The food was very good and I would eat there again.

Great food and service....never had a bad meal or experience here. If you have the time take a stroll in downtown Cleveland before or after dinner. Just about everything on the menu is good but the Salmon is really good.

My wife and I stopped here the first time for our anniversary because we had never been and it looked intriguing. A classic Italian restaurant is not something I'd say is typical for a town like Cleveland, TN. It was fairly empty, just us and another couple in there this visit, but it does get busier a little earlier and... More
