Had dinner there last week. Pizza is great. But the service was poor. Our server didn't seem to be interested in taking our order. Once we got our food he never came back to check on us. Never offered more to drink. Pricing is high. Pop is right at $3 a glass. Will not go back.

We entered the restaurant to eat a late lunch as we have every time we come to Gatlinburg but there wasn't anyone working there that we could see , after about 10 minutes of waiting on someone to acknowledge that we were there, we left! Probably won't go back

We ordered a pizza with spinach, pineapple and bacon. Kiddo ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Boy, her meal was gross. Huge plate of plain... More

Wings and pizza tasted fine, not spectacular but fine. Unfortunately we had to send back two beers because of multiple fruit flies. Mistakes happen but this shouldn't be immediately repeated. We weren't charged for the bad drinks we sent back but didn't think this was acceptable. Some of our celery also had a little visible dirt on it but at... More

The food was out of this world. We didn't have the bloody Mary or the burgers but of they were anything like the lasagna I had and the... More

This is put second favorite place to eat when we come to Gatlinburg. The Garlic knots are like heaven in your mouth and the everything we have ever had has been really good too. The staff is friendly the place has a real mom and pop feeling to it.

Very sorry this is more a pizza joint than an Italian restaurant. It offers pasta dishes which have been coated in lots of every day block cheese, not small amounts of good Italian hard cheese. Rest rooms off the kitchen need a lot of attention.
