We dropped in after several strong recommendations over the years to try this place. It is amazing. Don't be fooled by the unprepossessing exterior. This is a small family operated place where they obviously put a great deal of attention and expertise into their foods....More

Had a mushroom and onion pizza, thin crust. Gavinos has the best pizza in Knoxville in my opinion. We also had calamari for an appretizer, and it was good too. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Our large family met there to celebrate our son's name day. Delish pizza and friendly staff. Our little ones got to see the puzza makers throw the pizza in the air. Fun! Clean place.

We heard advertisements for the restaurant on the radio so we decided to stop in for lunch when we were in the neighborhood. The restaurant offers pizza by the slice for lunch. We had pepperoni and it was delicious. Give it a try.
