Yumma!

I was in the mood for pizza and decided to try this after being let down by Brick Oven. Boy did it make up for that. Got a large green olive, pepperoni and sausage pizza. Delish! Our server was very sweet and made sure we got refills on our sodas. So glad to come to a place where you don't... read more

My girlfriend was giving me a hard time because of the alley and dumpsters but agreed this is a wonderful place to eat! Had a delicious meal on the patio with a nice glass of Chardonnay. The portions are HUGE and the garlic rolls are excellent! A must stop in Gatlinburg.

We were there late on our first day of our stay. Excellent food and a slice of home. The pizza is New York style and superb.

Had a great experience at Best Italian Cafe in downtown Gatlinburg. Portions were huge. The price of a meal was about $15-$20 but it was worth it, with your meal you get garlic rolls and a huge salad with mushrooms, olives, tomatos and there was plenty of meat in the meals. I had the best chicken and broccoli Alfredo I... More

The place is right on the main strip downtown Gatlinburg. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the food was really good. The Calzones are HUGE!! Bigger than my head. One could feed four people! The medium pizza is really a large! We ordered a large salad and it could feed 6-8 people. They serve garlic rolls, that... More

My husband and I went here for lunch, we were both very impressed with the food and the freshness of it all. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and he ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce and mushrooms. They both came with a dinner salad. I chose the house made ranch, it was amazing.

We dined at this restaurant and both my husband and had spaghetti and meatballs. First came the salad (good) and the garlic bread rolls with no bread plate. They were good but wished we had a plate to set them on. The spaghetti and meatballs were the worst we ever had. The meatballs were not meat just filler. The spaghetti... More

We liked our lunch so much that we came back for dinner and it was even more delicious! The meatball sub was perfect for lunch and for dinner I had Chicken Florentine and it was amazing. It was huge too, so I brought half of it home for tomorrow. The pizza was also good and the spaghetti and meatballs.
