My wife heard about this place from a local as we were visiting Gatlinburg for a few days. We weren't steered wrong. Everything we experienced was top shelf including the price. The loaf of warm soft garlic bread and the olive oil and spice dipping sauce started the meal that became better with each item of food brought to the... More

Wait staff was very good. My wife had the lasagna and really loved it. She thought it was some of the best she has ever had. OUr granddaughters liked the spigetti (sp.) Price was very reasonable for a tourist town. Would definitely go there again. Note right by the Inn at Christmas Place.

Let me start by saying that I am in no way a fan of Italian food, but my wife is crazy for it. For our anniversary we spent the weekend in Tennessee, since my wife's favorite restaurant is Johnny Carino's and we don't have one local I decided to bite the bullet and made a bee-line for their establishment. Once... More

My husband was craving Italian food and was rated highly on here so we went. The food was very average and the prices didn't match the food. The best thing was the red velvet cheesecake.

This is a chain restaurant, but the food was delicious! The bread they serve is to die for. The spaghetti was wonderful, and the selection of sauces was vast. The atmosphere was old world italian, complete with red leather booths. We arrived pretty late one evening during our six day vacation in Pigeon Forge, about 40 minutes before they closed.... More

Overall menu was ok.. Gluten free was limited. Service was a little rude. She acted like she didn't want to be at work. Food was ok sadly Olive Garden is better

This place is pretty great in my opinion! I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was so delicious. The flavors were fresh and well worth a reason to stop by this place.

We moved to Virginia five years ago and one of the things we miss is a Carinos. Their Italian nachos are still great, as well as the skilletini an the alfredo. The toasted garlic in the olive oil for the bread dip is delicious. Portions are giant! Service was fair. Enjoyable meal.

Thank Bill S
