“Best Italian Around”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a wonderful spaghetti dinner with the best marinara sauce. Wonderful food and the garlic rolls are amazing! We sat on the lovely patio overlooking LeConte creek, very nice! And no, we were not charged for our water! I would recommend Best Italian to anyone looking for delicious Italian at a fair price, and enjoy the rolls!

“Nice non-touristy and great italian food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were directed here by the desk clerk at our hotel for a place that was where locals may eat. The portions (we had Eggplant Parm) were easily big enough for the two of us to share. The service was great, and for dessert we had an enormous piece of home-made strawberry cheesecake which may be the best we ever ate.

“Italiano surprise”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

we thoroughly enjoyed sitting along the creek, a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of the main street in Gatty; the rolls were delish and the meal as well; very nice server-- we will be back!

“Great little italian joint”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Went here one night for dinner with my husband and parents. Good food, ok prices. Its really one of the only italian places other than a pizza place. We would go back. They did say on the menu that they charge for water, tap water, but when we asked they did charge us. That was the only really weird thing about the place. The garlic rolls are AWESOME, unlike anything we have had before.

“Best hidden treat in town!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

My friend told me about this restaurant years ago, and we make it a part of our trip every time we go to Gatlingburg! Its the best "Italian" place ever! Love the bread, they have terrific spaghetti! The atmosphere is so enjoyable and we love how understated it is. The same lady is the hostess every time we go! She is a gem! We went to the location on the "main strip" very nice too, wonderful pizza, the kids enjoyed it a lot. Never underestimate the off the beaten track local places..they are usually the best ever!
