We chose this restaurant based on reviews, and it was fine. A good menu and nice atmosphere. It was late evening so not crowded.

Our first visit - atmosphere is that of a lowly lit Italian Villa. Ordered the Chicken Parm and the Eggplant Parm. Pleasantly surprised with the entrees and the taste and quality of each. Service was friendly and attentive. Their table bread is heavy, doughy and wonderful. Loved it all and will be coming back again. Highly recommend.

Nice friendly Italian, good for kids, food isn't going to win any awards - it's pretty basic stuff but what were you expecting in Pigeon Forge?! The sizzling spaghetti plate was ridiculously un-Italian but admittedly very tasty! Our Serbian waitress was extremely charming and made sure we were all happy.

We stopped in at Carino's for a quick bite and a drink on our way to a show one evening. We were seated in a booth in the bar area which has a pleasant 'pub-like' atmosphere. As we only had a short time, we split an order of fried mozzarella sticks with our drinks. A good choice as they were... More

We came over from Asheville for my brother-in-law's birthday dinner. No comparable Italian place on our side of the mountain. I had the bacon mac-n-cheese. My husband always gets the combo because he has to have the lasagna. The fresh warm rosemary bread is to die for. Very spacious booths, low lighting. Excellent sangrias, basically perfect atmosphere for an Italian... More

Blackened sirloin and bow tie pasta, by far the best seasonings in any pasta I have ever had! Savored every bite! The tiramisu was fabulous! I would recommend this restaurant. Haley was a great server, tending to all our needs.

The staff was so friendly, attentive and helpful. The gluten free pene pasta was OK for a quick pasta fix but it must have been corn pasta because it fell apart on my fork. The Chicken Florentine was OK but I would have liked there to be more taste. My dinner guest had the spicy cgicken and shrimp and he... More

Came here to eat supper. Was craving Italian. Decided on this instead of olive garden. Way better in my opinion. More true Italian food. Huge portions too! Will definitely stop here again on my next trip back to the smokies.

The food here was excellent. We were seated and automatically brought glasses of ice water along with a warm loaf of herbed bread and olive oil dipping sauce. Our appetizer was spinach stuffed mushrooms in a garlic cream sauce, delicious and different. His Entree was shrimp fettuccini alfredo with added vegetables and a side salad. Lots of food! I had...
