Every time I go to Knoxville I happen to stay in the same hotel and eat in the same restaurant Puleos. The Hotel recommended the place and gave me a 10% discount card. That doesn't usually make me try it but they assured me it was vert good. I have been back 10 times including take one time passing through... More

Upscaled diner fare, with nice sampling of Italian specialties. Good food, well-prepared and tasty. Excellent service, friendly and efficient. Only problem is finding the restaurant from the main road: the signage is inadequate and (night) lighting poor.

My husband & I went here with friends. They had eaten here before & loved it. We were impressed as well! My husband had shrimp & grits & I had filet mignon. I had mashed potatoes & asparagus. The food was excellent as was the service. We will definitely be back!

We went here for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel. It touts southern comfort and Italian heritage foods. We ordered a couple of Italian dishes, and a bottle of chianti wine. The fresh ciabatta bread was delicious and warm. The main courses were good, but not comparable to a good Italian restaurant, hence my average rating. The portions were... More

We were looking for a place to eat near our hotel and chose Puleo's. All the reviews were good and we weren't disappointed. Service was fast and friendly. We were served our drinks right away along with the menu. After ordering we were given warm bread, which was good. Our food arrived quickly and was hot, cooked perfectly. My husband... More

We were passing through area and staying at the nearby Best Western. Friday evening and the place was crowded which is always a good sign. Had a bottle of 1/2 price wine that was featured, salads and decent pasta dishes. Good food, good service and a fair price.

While traveling thru the area we stayed at a nearby hotel and wanted some decent takeout. Typical fast food gets old quickly. I looked up the menu on TA and called in an order. Purposely arrived at the restaurant early so I could sit at the bar and have a beer while waiting for the food. That's my little trick... More
