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

True to what we had heard, the food was great and the portions are huge! The calzone is literally bigger than a football! A family of three could easily share it. The garlic knots were amazing! A bit pricey but the portions make it worth it. Service was not too bad. Very family friendly. And a couple of TV's for... More

We stopped here for dinner and of course if your to and Italian restaurant you should eat Italian food! We had the chicken parmesan and it was big enough for two adults to spilt. We had the fried mushrooms which were good also, however the portion was very oversized. The service was good too.

We stopped in for lunch, and to try their Bloody Mary's. We sat in the bar, and had a sandwich and their famous Bloody Mary's. Food was great, Bloody's were very good and the service was outstanding. We noticed someone eating close by had ordered the calzone, and it was HUGE, enough for 2 people. We will stop in again... More

Was told to get very good Italian food here. Our server never came back to our table after bringing our food. The broccoli was brown. Floors were dirty. Wouldn't go back!

The food was very bland. The staff was rude and insulting. The manager accused my husband of being intoxicated when he tried to send a martini back because it had so much olive juice in it, it was BROWN. Then he was going to make us pay for it. RUDE.

This restaurant is just okay as Italian restaurants go. First of all, the place was less than 25% full. They had an abundance of servers and yet somehow the service was very much on the slow side. We were not in any sort of a hurry, but even so we noticed how long it took between visits from our waitress.... More
