Good Italian!

Stopped in for dinner just by happenstance. Huge portions, delicious complimentary bread, and great service. The only complaint I have is that it's so dark and the writing on the menus is so small that it was nearly impossible to read them! Good thing I had a flashlight app on my phone!

Very good choice for dinner while in Pigeon Forge. Service was excellent, food was excellent. One of the best Italian restaurants we have eaten at. Everything fresh made. Bread alone was wonderful. Nice couples ambience.

Casual friendly atmosphere...,but let's face it pigeon forge is not know for Italian. I had spaghetti and meatballs and hubby ate lasagna.....like I said it was was good... Especially for the price. The service was good and very friendly. We'd go back if we wanted Italian.

We were looking for a restaurant where we could be seated without a wait and were pleased to be shown to a table immediately. Although we were too tired to want a big meal, we enjoyed our spaghetti plates, but would have been more impressed if the house salad had not been an extra charge.

We had a nice dinner. The food was okay but not the best. The place just didn't feel that clean to me. The server was friendly. I thought it was a little pricey for what we got.

We both had salad which was on a really cold plate (vegetables were crisp and fresh) we ordered the combo plate and split) we will definitely go back on our next visit

My wife and I had the best service here by Max I wish we had more to tip him with. Our drink never went below half a glass and the food was to die for. I will recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.

We ordered lasagna, shrimp scampi and fettuccine alfredo. The alfredo was okay but the sauce was thick like glue. The shrimp scampi was flavorless, it needed garlic, lemon and a little salt. Just okay. The servers were great.

Went to this restaurant on a whim without checking reviews. Excellent food, no wait and good service. I had the Ravioli with jalapeno sauce. It was delicious! Not too spicy. Would definately go back. On another note, show your receipt at Country Tonite Show and get $7 off each adult ticket! Added bonus!

Didn't want to venture too far from our hotel and wanted something other than traditional southern food. We ordered side salads and split the chicken parm. This was more than enough food for us two ladies to eat. I also ordered a glass of sangria which was in a tall glass and very tasty.
