This place was clean, the service was pretty good, but the food is just so-so. If you smother everything in cheese of course people are going to like it. The sauces in the meals had no real flavor though.

Locally owned. We went for lunch but could order off the dinner menu to. Garlic knot bread and sauce brought to your table. We ordered and got served quickly. Had baked ziti, parmesan chicken and spaghetti. For the little one his favorite chicken fingers and fries. Loved it all. Left full with a thank you for coming.

Oh the garlic knots! The best around. I had the Lasagne and my Wife had the Veal Parmasian and both were fabulous. Our waiter (Andre) was awesome. A must for your next meal in Gatlinburg.

The pizza and crust were wonderful. The garlic rolls were sinful. Would definitely return when in the area.

Second visit, better than the first. Had great service. The pizza is by far the best in town. There is bar service, didn't try anything this visit.
