Arrived in Gatlinburg just before 9 pm, hungry and thirsty. Headed to the parkway just wanting to find something quick to eat and drink. Realized we were passing in front of Best Italian, looked at the menu, and remembering positive comments about the food at the Elk Plaza we made a quick decision to stop here.
Service was a bit slow... took the waiter a while to acknowledge us and then again a wait to place the order.
Order a calzone to split between us and two glasses of water. Waiter was good at keeping the water topped up. Water was on the menu for $0.99 but we were not charged for it on our bill.
Calzone was, as previously reported huge and tasty. We ate less than 1/2 of it and took the rest with us. We also ordered the famous garlic buns (4) which were just as good as everyone says!
Not our best restaurant experience but it filled the bill for tired hungry thirsty tourists!
