This little Italian Restaurant is superb and a little bit off the beaten track of the over populated tourist town of Gatlinburg. It's not easy to find but when you come out of the national park watch for a sign on your right within a couple of blocks from exiting park.Its in the back of some shops. The best thing... More

We didn't actually eat here. We walked in, it felt like the a/c wasn't working. There were many empty tables and 3 other families waiting to be seated. So we went to Howard's next door.

We live locally and this is our favorite pizza restaurant. We have never been disappointed with the service. The establishment is very cozy and relaxing. The food, from salads to pizza are fabulous. Their garlic knots are to die for! If you love authentic Italian cuisine, a quaint environment, healthy portions that won't break the bank, then Best Italian is... More

We ate here the night we arrived in Gatlinburg. It was a very busy night and we arrived around 7:30. The restaurant was full but they have a patio dining area which is where we ate. It was very hot out but they had some large fans running on the patio. The patio was really nice and there were trees... More

We didn't dislike anything. The pizza is among the best that we've ever had, the beer was fresh, and the service was great.
