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

Good service and the staff was very friendly; however, the food was just okay and was also pricey (as is everything in G-Burg). The garlic knots were good, but nothing special. My boyfriend and I split an appetizer and an entree. The artichoke appetizer was a dip served with crackers that again, was just okay. We also ordered the chicken... More

My husband and I were here on Tuesday 10/21/14 for dinner. We were not impressed at all. It was clean and our server was good. The food was okay, but the place is way overpriced for what it is. We won't be back.

They were a bit understaffed, but with a bit of patience a reward. We had pizza and garlic rolls (don't miss these). Can't wait to visit for pasta. We had a hard time deciding.

The prices are a bit high but any entree can be split between two people. The rolls are amazing and service was good.

We stopped for drinks only, I forgot the lady's name but she was a hoot and was very friendly. She knew the job well and was very well informed about Gatlinburg! She took very good care of us and gave us a tasting of some very unique Long Island Ice teas they carry. Try the pineapple and Grateful Dead version!

The food was good but expensive. We paid about $30 for 2 sandwiches, fries and cokes at lunch time. Probably wouldn't return for lunch but would give it another go for dinner (pizza).

I called to place a pick up order and yes I am local. I was informed to call closer to when I wanted it and told by Peggy who took my call that she was busy very rudely. I live and work here I understand it gets busy, but there is a polite way to say it and that way... More

I was with a group of 6 friends. We were sat immediatly (this was at 5 pm), and our server was quick to get our drink orders. When our meals came, everything was piping hot, plentiful, and delicious. There were no complaints about our food at all, except it was more than we could eat!! Two of our group split... More

We ordered pizza & salad. They got both wrong. Edge of crust was crisp. Remainder of crust was soggy, like soaked in liquid. Server was ok, but a bit scatter brained. It's good that this restaurant doesn't need to depend on repeat business.
