The restaurant offers seating inside and I believe there was a patio but didn't go to it. It's quietly located off of one of the side streets in Gatlinburg in a small village type of setting. The pizza is very good with gracious amounts of cheese. More of a thicker crust but not Sicilian. It's pretty tasty but with lots... More

I love pizza and the Best Italian Cafe does not disappoint. My 2 friends and I shared a medium Veggie pizza and it was more than enough. The garlic knots melt in your mouth and the service was great. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for a delicious pizza!

We stopped here on our last day in Gatlinburg. They were able to seat a party of 11 quickly. When we asked for separate checks, the server said no problem. Our orders were taken quickly and drinks brought promptly. A surprise were the Italian rolls with garlic butter and cheese on top. Delicious! All of our meals were very good.... More

We were seated immediately, and decided to order a salad and pizza. Tried the BBQ Chicken pizza, and it was better than we expected.

Peggy was very helpful and even remembered my order from Monday when I returned Wednesday. Christina was very courteous and helpful and the food was great with... More

I eat here at least once a year with a group when I am in town and have never been disappointed. It was not crowed when we were hear on Aug. 9, which was very unusual. As usual the food was delicious...of course you MUST EAT the garlic rolls, but I also recommend the Eggplant Parmesan and the Lasagna...both delicious.

The pictured restaurant is the original location on the south end of town. We ate at the newer location in mid-town. The garlic butter dip for the rolls is worth the trip! These are even sold separately due to their awesomeness (pardon my use of a descriptor more common among our sons' generation)! We enjoyed the vegetable pizza which we... More

Me and my wife eat dinner there 8/6, and so awful. The bill was $55 for the manicotti, fettacini alfredo, and caIimari. Not a large meal by any means. We waited 10 min to get seated in a place less than half full. I can deal with the wait for good food. The marinara sauce for the calamari was almost... More

This place came highly recommended so we decided to give it a try and ordered a cheese pizza. The pizza didn’t have as much sauce as I would have liked but it was okay. Nothing special. Wish I had tried the garlic knots as those looked good.
