These folks have two restaurants. We always head to Best Italian for pizza when we come to town. It's closer to the entrance of the Great Smoky National Park. They have opened a second restaurant, The Best Italian on the Parkway, which is located closer to the center of Gatlinburg shopping. Had lunch there today and it was outstanding. We... More

Amazing pizza. Even though we were full we could not stop eating. The ingredients tasted so fresh and the service was great. Definitely would recommend to anyone walking down the town looking for a tasty pizzeria.

Food really good as Italian is my favorite. The service was lacking as it took 15 minutes for waitress to get to us and they weren't that busy. Would still probably go back though.

Best plate of food. Rolls are amazing. Steak and pasta is wonderful and lasagna is the best. Salad is really good. Pizza is great also.

This is our favorite restaurant in Gatlinburg. We've been visiting it since 1982 when the original Italian owner was still living. On our first visit, he sat with us and showed us the proper way to eat pizza. I believe this family sold it after he passed away, but the food is still delicious. We love it so much that... More

Main course items were exorbitantly pricey, so we opted for a pizza, which was also overpriced for the lack of quality. Even though it was a thin crust, it was soggy. Would not go back.

This was our first visit here. This place has been in Gatlinburg for years; we have passed it by many times. Looking at other reviews from TripAdvisor, we had to try it. We had the veal florentine and the chicken florentine. The portions were huge; we couldn't eat all of it! Very good flavor in the sauce and the meat... More
