I would call this a "best kept secret" except Sernicola's is no secret within 150 miles of the restaurant. This was our first experience here...having meant to visit many times before but not anxious to drive the 40 miles each way to get there. Well...the drive is beautiful and you could double the miles, and we would still go back.... More

Oh so delicious. Italian is there specialty, pasta, pizza and a terrific tomato soup. Even our 13 yr loves this. The pizza is the best in the area. It does take awhile but well worth the wait. The desserts are beautiful and taste as good as they look. They are also BIG Portions, so only get one and share.

This place is small but packs a punch. Food is homemade Italian recipes and the salad bar is awesome even though it's small in size as we'll, they use fresh local veggies. Worth any wait to get in. It is decorated as if your sitting in an outside ally in Italy.

We are frequent guests of this restaurant. Why? The pizza is superb. The other menu items are fresh and tasty. The buffet at lunch is an excellent value, and the staff is warm and friendly. When you consider this restaurant is tucked in tiny Cowan, TN it is even harder to believe. We love Sernicola's and so do many of... More

I am not sure that Sernicola's should be ranked amongst Cowan restaurants, but probaly in a county wide list. They would certainly hold their own for quality of food, service, ambiance and all over delicious. We have been by often, never on the right day to stop. We were lucky to be there last night, and know we will make... More

Small establishment owned and operated by a local family. Food is fresh. Prices are reasonable. Decor is fun. Space is small. Wait staff is friendly and eager to please. But most importantly the dishes are always delicious. We've tried lasagna, salad bar, pizza, spaghetti and chicken.
