I was there as part of a group of 14, seated in a room off the main dining room. As in many restaurants, the owners decided to paint the acoustical ceiling, plugging up the sound-absorbing holes! And the walls are hard. The sound was deafening....More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is really pretty cool. It's meant to look Italian and does a pretty good job. The food however is lacking. Most of what we ate was dripping in oil which was odd and gross. Presentation of food was terrible; cheap,...More

We arrived here having high expectations, and they were met. Although some maintenance is needed this place has the feel of a family owned Buisness. The hostess was very sweet and sat us right away in a small booth for two. Our waiter, a male,...More

We had chicken Alfredo, chicken parmigiana, ravioli. Food was sort of average quality but very expensive for pasta. Garlic rolls and salad were good. We won't be going back, but I know it has a following. Atmosphere was good.

We enjoy going to Altruda's anytime but every year we like to celebrate our wedding anniversary there. The atmosphere is special and the food is always delicious. The all-you can-eat garlic rolls and salad could be a meal but we always each order an entree....More

Consider sharing or splitting dishes here, everything is large. Major kudos for one of the best kids menus I've seen. Lasagne, canneloni, linguine with clams, and maybe a dozen other options.

We were in Knoxville for our sons baseball game and stopped in to Altruda's for dinner. Classic Italian restaurant atmosphere. Our waitress, Alyssa, was possibly the best server we have ever had. With her enthusiastic knowledge of the entire menu, she was able to steer...More

My wife and I visited Altruda’s for some classic Italian Food. We both ordered the Chicken Parmigiana, which came with spaghetti, a salad, and garlic rolls. The salad and rolls were great, but the chicken was mediocre. The serving size was small and the coating...More

We moved to Knoxville in 1992 from Chicago, and both my wife and I were raised in Pittsburgh, so I think we know good Italian food, and this is good, basic Italian food! Don't come here looking for high prices and fancy presentations; rather, come...More
