The service here is excellent, the food average. The portions are small,and just tasted like standard chain restaurant food with a high price tag.

This is the worst pizza I have ever eaten! take the cheapest store bought freezer pizza, place in oven and warm until thawed but still cool and serve to your customer! what a joke! this place should be out of business this year! the owners should be ashamed to call this italian food. don't waste your time or money!!!

Daniel was very good. He never let our tea glasses run out. The Black & Blue salad was delicious and very filling. The spaghetti and meat sauce was also very good. Both my husband and I had to take some home. This will be a place to return to.

Another one of our favorite places to eat in Pigeon Forge. We love the food and the fact that it is quiet enough that we a have a conversation.

The spaghetti and meatballs needed a lot more sauce and the Sprite was just fizzy water, I told the waitress but noticed the young girl next to us ordered a Sprite and got the same fizzy water. Was disappointed that that issue was not taken care of since it was same waitress for... More

We love Johnny Carino's restaurant, and now that we've found out that you can get family size dinners for half price on Monday's then that's where we go on Mondays when our trip includes a Monday. We had their delicious lasagna this time shared between three people with some left over. Of course, the bread in the garlic and spiced... More
