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.

This resturant have been reccomended by hotel staff earlier. We had returned to hotel late, this resturant was across street, so we decided to give it a try. Everything was very "worn" to say the least-definitely needs make over. Food was average at best, although portions were very large. Probably will not go back.

We eat at Best Italian everytime we go to Gatlinburg. I could eat nothing but garlic rolls. They are so delicious. I ate baked spaghetti that is not on the menu but they bake it for me covered with cheese it's so good. My husband had lasagna. And loved it. We always have leftovers there is so much. Not a... More

To start, Peggy is AMAZING! Not only is she a delight, she can whip up some killer cocktails! While you're waiting on their famous garlic parmesan homemade rolls and truly the best Italian food, Peggy will amaze you with some local history and other fun facts if she really likes you! :-) My party of four loved our experience and...
