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.

This place was recommended to us by a local for their great pizza and garlic rolls. Although we did not try the garlic rolls, we did order some pizza and it was very good. Service by our waitress Bea was great - she was very friendly. I felt the place was just a bit too dated for what they charge.... More

I stopped at Best Italian to pick up an oder of Garlic Rolls. They were pretty good, but didn't have a lot of garlic or cheese on them. They have always been very good in the past. I think we hit them on a off night. We will still eat here, but just not every trip. There are better Italian... More

$23 for 5 ravioli and a glass of tea. No thanks. We wandered into this place when we got into town kind of late. Garlic knots smelled good, but were a little too greasy from swimming in butter (not my thing). The waitress, bless her heart, brought unsweet tea for refills of sweet tea because they were out. That would... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local for a great lunch. We decided to try it and we were pleasantly surprised! The calzone was huge and awesome-my husband and I split it but it could have served 4 easily. We ate what we could and took over half of it home. The sauce for dipping was excellent as well. Can't...
