We were in the mood for some Italian, and decided to head off the strip. This place is several miles out of town on Wears Valley Rd., but it was worth the drive. Not fancy at all, but the food was great! I had lasagna,...my wife and daughter split the chicken alfredo. We also had some mozzarella sticks for an appetizer. All were great and excellent portions. Deserts looked very good, but we were too full!More

One of the few places in Wears Valley that’s open in the dead of winter. I consider myself a pizza connoisseur so i wasn’t blown away by Geppetto’s pizza BUT for a restaurant in a valley in between 2 mountains in TN, it was quite...good. A good value, it tasted good and it fed 2 adults and 2 kids. The best part of the meal was the cheese cake! It was fantastic! The staff was very friendly and talkative while I waited on my to go order. When we stay in wears valley again, we will def get a Geppetto’s pizza!More

This is our second time stopping here when on vacation to the area. Tonight we got pizza and tried the baked lasagna everyone raves about! It was so yummy! The balsamic vinaigrette was homemade and delicious! We love this little place!!!

Good food, priced right. Only thing the pizza had a tough crust, more than usual. We ordered a large order of pizza, pasta, sandwiches and they got it right. Pasta and sandwiches were great. Not disappointed at all, just the pizza crust

Excellent! Party of 7 and no wait. Beverages and appetizers were out in no time. Kids gobbled down ravioli and waitress noted that it is made fresh daily. I got eggplant parm and it was delicious. I barely made room for dessert. We got a...few slices of cake to share (rainbow cake and chocolate cake) amongst party. Both were delicious. They are locally made and brought in. Excellent place to grab dinner with or lunch . Definitely plan to return!More

I try someplace different. Took them an hour and a half to deliver cold pizza, that tasted like cardboard!

Nice Hole in the Wall. Would do again. Would recommend. Chicken parm is real good. No one got the runs this time. Good deal.

This is a great place to stop when coming back from Cades Cove. It’s a small mom and pop restaurant. Loved the baked lasagna. We didn’t have the pizza but it looked good too. Our only complaint was the small parking lot. The service was...friendly and attentive.More
