The name says it all. This is the only Italian restaurant that my wife and I have never been disappointed with in 14 years of marriage. We look forward in eating here every year when we come to visit the Smokies.

For 2 years now me and my boyfriend stop here while in Gatlinburg. We make it a tradition anytime we are in town. We absolutely love the pizza and they seem the have the coldest beer in town!

Food was good. Portions gargantuan. They would not let us split...even with an extra charge, so all seven of us had food left over. Staying at hotel, cannot take to eat next day. Would have preferred smaller size with smaller price.
