We always seem to find our way here every time we visit Gatlinburg. The food is good but a tad bit pricey. Always good service. We've eaten the cheesecake that looks delicious but to me lacks flavor (bland). I had the Brazilian pizza. Yummy! Hubby and adult kids had spaghetti and meatballs with the marinara sauce which is so delicious!!!... More

We were tired after a long day of wandering the Arts and Crafts Community and stopped for a quick bite. Service was fast. Food was okay.

This was at best an average Italian food place with below par service. I asked for a cup of coffee because I was cold from the walk up a mountain. After 15 minutes of waiting they finally brought me a cup. (It was like that every time I asked for a new cup). The waitress was clueless. She took our... More

When we visit the Smokies we always stop here for the garlic rolls, best I've ever had. The rest of the food is just average, the portions are large but it's nothing special. The rolls are worth coming here for even if u only order a salad. The staff is nice and we've always received good service.

Been eating here every time I roll into Gatlinburg. Last two visits the service is horrible. Do not know what has changed, but after all these years I will not return

Love the pizza and garlic rolls, we eat here every time we come to visit. Service can be hit or miss and can be a bit pricey but did I say WE LOVE THE PIZZA!!! We prefer the location across from the Hampton Inn just doesn't seem to be quite as crazy!

My sister and I decided to eat here after a long day. I ordered a sweet tea to drink and she ordered a water. I'm a true southern woman who enjoys a good sweet tea, but it was WAY too sweet. I got a water instead. I ordered the wings and my sister got the spaghetti with marinara. Wings had... More

Good little place right on the main strip in Gatlinburg. The food is good and at a great price. We had the pizza and was told that they have been voted the best pizza place in town and I can see why.

I had spaghetti with meatballs and the portion was huge. The garlic rolls were drenched in oil and I don't think anyone can have more than one. The sauce and meatball was good though. I would go here if you are really hungry but I think there are better options out there in Gatlinburg.
