Fresh cooked fine authentic Italian dining. Although the selection is few, but its cooked with perfection and quite garlicky....love it. The rolls are dipped in extreme garlic butter...yum Salad is extremely fresh and good quality.

Every time I come here the garlic rolls are amazing, truly can't compare to them. Looking forward to the next time I come here.

I'm on a temporary assignment working in Knoxville and Alruda's is near my hotel. First of all the complementary salad and garlic knots are to die for. I've read the reviews that say Altruda's salad is like Olive Garden's - well there is no comparison....More
